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 38

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 #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 #38:
"Opposition"

The meaning of hexagram #38

This hexagram implies a draw, an impasse or a stalemate. Like water and fire coming together, opposing forces bring activity to a standstill. The opposing forces you encounter may be the actions or opinions of others, or they may be one's own. An internal struggle may have brought you to a point where movement is impossible. This is a time to identify a higher vision for yourself. Look to see who shares your vision and who does not, who is in alignment with your cause and who is not. This is an opportunity to evaluate and decide on directions for future movement. The first step in dealing with opposition is identifying it.
