Thunder Wind
Heaven Earth

The initial hexagram #32 is built from the upper trigram of Thunder over the lower trigram of Wind.

The second completed hexagram, #12, breaks down into a new, changed upper trigram of Heaven over a new, changed lower trigram of Earth.


The starting hexagram #32:
"Permanence"

The meaning of hexagram #32

This hexagram points to the importance of stability and constancy. In the same way that thunder and lightning have always been together, the wise person seeks unions that are forever. Keep an optimistic outlook and your friendships/partnerships will endure and succeed. Simultaneously, you must access a sense of stability inside yourself. Like the constellations in the sky, everything in life moves as an integrated whole. Discovering this integration - by which everyone and everything in the Universe are connected -will put you in touch with stability and the power of permanence.


The changing lines between hexagram 32 and hexagram 12

Changing line #2

"Dropping Remorse"- If something was not meant to last, let it go. Put aside regret and start afresh.

Changing line #3

"Separating from Moods"- This line is a reminder that moods pass through you, but they are not truly what you are. You live through your moods. There is solace to be found by accessing a sense of permanency deep inside you. The wise person ignores the ups and downs of their moods and seeks to feel and identify with a deeper permanency inside. Genuine stability can be found by trusting the intuitive, quiet voice within your heart

Changing line #5

"Letting Duty Guide"- In each moment give importance to a sense of honor and duty. What duty will lead to the best outcome? Seek the answer and good fortune will come

Changing line #6

"Allowing Inner Composure"- When restlessness governs a relationship or partnership, it is unlikely to last. By taking the time to gain inner composure, relationships will flourish and endure


The future hexagram #12:
"Stagnation"

The meaning of hexagram #12

This ominous hexagram symbolizes heaven and earth out of balance. Creative energies are flowing the wrong way, and little is accomplished. Ideas and projects stagnate, and enthusiasm disappears. Those who are not worthy of accomplishment are on the rise. Lesser men and women dominate the scene. Wise men note that the situation is dangerous and withdraw into introspection, modesty and meditation. Very little of value can be accomplished at this time.
