Mountain Thunder
Fire Thunder

The first hexagram #27 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Mountain above the lower trigram of Thunder.

The second transformed hexagram, #21, is built from a newly transformed upper trigram of Fire above an untransformed lower trigram of Thunder.


The starting hexagram #27:
"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 21

Changing line #4

"Summoning Support"- This line is a reminder to gather your team of supporters with great care and attention. Let your values be your guide. Live by your principals. Look toward the highest peaks for comradeship and connection.


The future hexagram #21:
"Jaws"

The meaning of hexagram #21

This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
