The meaning of hexagram #31

We are all interconnected and we all affect each other's lives. This hexagram symbolizes the power each of us has to support one another, change and charm one another. This is a time to cooperate and connect. The deeper and broader meaning of relationships comes into play as one explores the ways that friends and lovers change each other. This will be a time when you easily bring someone new into your life. You can understand your lover/partner/co-worker by studying them and their movements. Win their approval with your loyalty and steadfast vision.


The changing lines between hexagram 31 and hexagram 16

Changing line #3

"Observing the Thighs"- This line is a reminder that our changing moods influence our movements. Don't follow someone blindly. Be sensitive and gentle toward the shifting emotions in yourself and others

Changing line #5

"Patting Yourself on the Back"- If we cannot influence ourselves, we cannot produce positive change in others. Growth starts from within. Cheer others on by way of cheering yourself on first. Your attitude toward yourself determines your attitude toward others


The future hexagram #16:
"Approval"

The meaning of hexagram #16

This hexagram with only one solid line indicates approval and enthusiastic support for actions and decisions. One strong line exists among many weaker supporting lines. In matters involving group decisions, consensus will be reached, and a single point of view will be shared among many. In personal matters, a choice will be respected, admired or obeyed. Unity is referenced here. Many act as one, because the one acts with confidence and clear leadership.
