"The Sacred Turtle"-In this line, the turtle symbolizes wisdom and spiritual openness. Admire these qualities in others and notice them in yourself. If you ignore them, misfortune could start to crawl into your life.

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 #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.
