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 39

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 #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 #39:
"Obstruction"

The meaning of hexagram #39

This foreboding hexagram is a telltale sign of great difficulty and adversity. This is a time to seek guidance and counsel from a wise person, an elder or an entire team. Remember, asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness. This may be a time to seek support and break free of isolation. Perseverance brings good fortune. Stay put for a while if you think it wise. Though you may be stopped in your path on an outer level, let your inner purpose stay true to its course.
