The changing lines between hexagram 31 and hexagram 60

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 #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 #4

"Letting the Heart Influence"- The true and quiet power of one's own inner heart and nature ensures the best influence upon others. Be true, firm and loving in yourself and there will be good fortune.


The future hexagram #60:
"Limitation"

The meaning of hexagram #60

This hexagram is a reminder of boundaries and edges. It implies containment and conservation of funds and energies. Financially, this is a time to tighten your belt. Health wise, this is a time to respect the limits of health and safety. Romance wise, this is a time to recognize the boundaries and limits that others set. Discover your line in the sand. Be conservative in your affairs and the doors to success will stay open. Just as the shore gives shape to a lake, so also do limits and boundaries give shape to your life. Know these lines, and what is within them will grow in power and meaning.
