"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 8

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.


The future hexagram #8:
"Union"

The meaning of hexagram #8

This hexagram represents the binding force, or commitments that exist between two people or organizations. Through union we become more powerful and yet we must also remember that to some extent we become less free. Strong commitment and authority is required, but so is a letting go of personal desires for the sake of the greater good. Union is an agreement and a blessing. It is a force for strength, but it must also be nurtured and protected. A union that is not defended will eventually shatter.
