"Nourishment"

The meaning of hexagram #27

The image of an open mouth is portrayed by this hexagram. This is a time to nourish one's body, mind and spirit. It is also a time to delight in nourishing others. Remember, giving and receiving are not inherently different. To give is to receive. Feed yourself with good ideas, good actions, good books, good teachers and good people.


The changing lines between hexagram 27 and hexagram 19

Changing line #2

"Seeking the Best Nourishment"- This line is a reminder to take responsibility for one's own nourishment. Don't receive from the ungenerous. Be wise with your giving as well. Give help to those who have genuine potential, not to those who are unmotivated or ungenerous.

Changing line #6

"Being the Source of Nourishment"- This line is a green light to go ahead. You have achieved a sense of self-nourishment, and others will respond to it. You will be effortlessly supported by others. Gather your team and go forward as planned, knowing success will come.


The future hexagram #19:
"Approaching"

The meaning of hexagram #19

This hexagram references the positive concepts of anticipation and expectation. A time of growing power and energies which have not yet revealed themselves. Diligence and focus must be at maximal levels because a time of great flourishing is near. The period of late winter (just prior to the springtime) is also referenced here.
