The starting hexagram #2:
"The Receptive"

The meaning of hexagram #2

The Receptive is the hexagram denoting "devotion" and the spirit of the Earth. Fertile ground is required for creation. The hexagram of "the receptive" often has a strong female meaning, but can denote a powerful relationship between either a man and a woman, a father and son or between friends. A conscious act of devotion and a willingness to stand by that person, principle or force which sustains us, guides us or fills us with energy.


The changing lines between hexagram 2 and hexagram 29

Changing line #2

"Straightness, Solidity and Greatness" - A strong construction and a stable foundation allow for a powerful structure to be built above. Directness leads to greatness. Do not take the roundabout path to your goal when the straightforward approach is necessary.

Changing line #5

"The Yellow Garment" - Yellow symbolizes the earth and that which is authentic. Look beneath the surface to see what is real. Outward appearances are less important than that which lies beneath. A simple yellow garment is worn underneath. Modesty, integrity and simplicity will defeat flashy displays and superficial efforts.


The future hexagram #29:
"Pitfalls"

The meaning of hexagram #29

Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
