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 58

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.

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.

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 #58:
"Joyousness"

The meaning of hexagram #58

This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
