Thunder Wind
Earth Fire

The first hexagram #32 is composed of the upper trigram of Thunder positioned above the lower trigram of Wind.

The successive transformed hexagram, #36, is built from a new, changed upper trigram of Earth positioned above 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 36

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.


The future hexagram #36:
"Darkening of the Light"

The meaning of hexagram #36

This hexagram symbolizes a diminishing of one's brightness and spirit. Its meaning is literally "The Wounding of the Bright." Your life may feel out of control or under a dark spell for a time. This too shall pass. A veil of untruth makes things dark, but all hope is not lost. Yield to the darkness for a time, but be cautious of it. As the light dims your inner light grows more visible. You are light. Light is love. The Sun still shines behind its veil of clouds. It is the light inside that is ultimately important. With this knowledge you can survive any darkness outside.
