The starting hexagram #29:
"Pitfalls"

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. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.


The changing lines between hexagram 29 and hexagram 4

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

Changing line #6

"Imprisonment"- The shackles you wear have grown tight. Come to grips with what is happening. Within three years time the light will shine brightly again


The future hexagram #4:
"Youthful Inexperience"

The meaning of hexagram #4

Inexperience is a double edged sword. It leads one to make mistakes, but the mistakes are necessary in order to learn. Do not feign knowledge. Seek out experience and ask what you do not know. Over time, all gaps in knowlege will be filled.
