Earth Earth
Fire Earth

The initial hexagram #2 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Earth on top of an identical lower trigram of Earth.

The second changed hexagram, #35, is built from a transformed upper trigram of Fire on top of an untransformed lower trigram of Earth.


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 35

Changing line #4

"The Bound Satchel" - Danger is associated with visibility here. Keep ones thoughts, writings and work under wraps until the danger passes. A time to keep secrets. Ideas and opinions should often be saved for the right moment.

Changing line #6

"The Battle of Dragons" - A change in this line represents two dragons fighting. One is real, the other is a false dragon which will be defeated, but both will suffer injury. This is a battle which has been fought before -- and will be fought again.


The future hexagram #35:
"Progress"

The meaning of hexagram #35

Like the Sun rising effortlessly upward at the dawn of a new day, you will find yourself elevated to new heights. This fortunate hexagram suggests career advancement and recognition for a job well done. Expect greater responsibility, prosperity and kinship. This is an opportunity to benefit others while experiencing your own radiance and splendor. Your inner nature grows in brightness and purity. This is a time of awakening to your life's purpose.
