Water Water
Heaven Water

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 6

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

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 #6:
"Conflict"

The meaning of hexagram #6

The message of this hexagram is that even those who go through life with good-will and the best intentions will at times meet with hostility and powerful opposition. At this time it is advised that conflict be avoided, for conflict at this time (even if justified) will lead to more serious setbacks. There are times when a "cautious halt" can be far more powerful than the most aggressive response.
