The meaning of hexagram #29

Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst.

The changing lines between hexagram 29 and hexagram 24

Changing line #1

"Falling into an Abyss"- Any attempt to fight what is happening could make the situation worse. True surrender is your savior. Resistance is futile. Ride out the current bad situation and soon it will be over.

Changing line #2

"Rejoice in Small Gains"- This line is a reminder that there is light in the dark. Place attention on the positive, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. Attention on the positive makes it grow stronger.

Changing line #5

"The Path of Least Resistance"- Though there is still danger, all is not lost. Don't make your goals too lofty. Stay with what is most immediate. Find the path with the fewest obstacles and soon the peril will diminish


The future hexagram #24:
"The Turning Point"

The meaning of hexagram #24

This welcome hexagram signifies a return to walking the proper path. The light has returned and cuts through the darkness. Walk with your head held high, knowing there is fruit to bear in every direction. Like the winter solstice, this is a time of new beginnings and opportunities. It is a time of true health and clarity.
