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 34

Changing line #1

"Watching the Walk"- Observing how another individual walks through their life can teach all you need to know about the situation at hand. Watch how others walk, think, behave, breathe, eat. This will help you discern who is, and who is not, a worthy partner.

Changing line #2

"Observing the Calves"- This line means that anyone with a poor intention will walk with a poor stride, and they may cause trouble for you. What is the motive behind someone's foot work? Know it well before you connect with them.

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 #34:
"Great Power"

The meaning of hexagram #34

As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
