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 43

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 #3

"The Power of Waiting"- Stay put. Don't act one way or the other. Herein lies your strength.

Changing line #4

"The Power of Sincerity"- This line is a reminder to keep things simple and pure. With honest intentions, you will see an open window and let more light in to the situation


The future hexagram #43:
"Breaking Through"

The meaning of hexagram #43

Pressure has been building for some time. Now, like water cracking and bursting through a dam, old restraints are being broken. The river overflows the dam. The truthful finally cast aside the untrue. Tension gives way to motion. Powerful action has been a long time coming. The influences of those who are beneath you suddenly mean very little. A cloudburst. The months of April and May may have special significance to this hexagram.
