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 29
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 #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 #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
The future hexagram #29:
The meaning of hexagram #29
Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
