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 63
Changing line #1
"The Ice is Coming" - Frost is underfoot, but soon there will be ice. Pay attention to problems now, as they are warnings of even greater problems yet to come. Issues addressed at this early stage will be much easier to deal with.
Changing line #3
"For the Greater Good" - There are times to attract attention to oneself, and there are times when the self is less important than the good of others, or the good of the whole. Success and victory are not always personal victories. The modest person achieves greatness by supporting his or her peers.
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 #63:
The meaning of hexagram #63
A transition from chaos to order is referenced by this hexagram. You have come a long way but the journey is not over. Like a traveler who has traversed a difficult and wide river, you appear to approach your destination. But the river bank is not the final stopping place. The most difficult work is over, but the wise person never stops moving onward in incremental steps. You are entering new territory and it will be smooth going at first. A new relationship or project will get off to the perfect beginning. But stay balanced internally and externally, or else the road ahead could become bumpy. Completion and beginning are deeply connected. Only one part of your journey is ending.
