Thunder Wind
Mountain Fire

The first hexagram #32 breaks down into the upper trigram of Thunder on top of the lower trigram of Wind.

The second changed hexagram, #22, is built from a new, changed upper trigram of Mountain on top of a new, changed lower trigram of Fire.


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 22

Changing line #1

"Waiting for Maturity"- In order for something to last, it must be nurtured and cultivated. A new endeavor or relationship may not be stable at first. This is OK. Open up gradually to the power of duration.

Changing line #2

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

Changing line #4

"Seeking Worthy Support"- There is no sense in looking for permanency from something which does not feed your soul. If a contact or relationship does not support your higher purposes, let it dissolve.

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 #22:
"Grace"

The meaning of hexagram #22

Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form - the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one's wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
