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.

Changing line #5

"Stepping off the Path"- Nurture yourself by taking a break from forward motion. Stand still for a while. Don't start a new project, job or romance just yet. Seek spiritual counsel first.


The future hexagram #42:
"Increase"

The meaning of hexagram #42

Like wind growing stronger and thunder growing louder, this hexagram signifies a time of building up and amassing of energies. A time of prosperity, increased health and vitality is drawing near. Use this increased flow of good fortune to support others, foster your education or start a business. Expect a burst of creative power that will be sustained easily. Shoulder your responsibility wisely. Let forces combine for greater abundance and let your inner drive propel you forward.
