The changing lines between hexagram 27 and hexagram 26

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 #3

"Feeding Your Soul"- When choosing friends, co-workers or romantic partners, ignore the superficial realms of status and finances. Be with people who support your deepest values. Receive with an open heart and you will avoid misfortunes and experience greater health.


The future hexagram #26:
"Great Achievements"

The meaning of hexagram #26

This vital hexagram explores the power of holding firm and standing your ground. Don't become distracted by luxury and leisure. Stay the course with courage and inner discipline. This can be a time of great gains and increased well-being, but you must keep your footing despite strong currents tugging at you. Put your ideas/projects into motion. Cross the waters without apprehension. Honor your strengths to achieve great things.
