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.

Win their approval with your loyalty and steadfast vision.


The changing lines between hexagram 31 and hexagram 6

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 #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 #6

"Being Real"- This is a time when sincerity is extremely powerful. Notice how you talk and how others talk. Always remember that spoken words are potent and influential


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.
