Earth Earth
Wind Water

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 59

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.

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 #59:
"Dispersing"

The meaning of hexagram #59

This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
