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 47

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


The future hexagram #47:
"Exhaustion"

The meaning of hexagram #47

Oppression and feelings of constraint are the qualities embodied by this foreboding hexagram. This is a time when you may not be taken seriously and may grow weary of such treatment. Others may try to smother you or keep you trapped into playing an old role. It is a time of oppression. But fear not. The challenges will make you a better person. By accessing an inner sense of stability it is possible to stay cheerful in these trying times, and you will then tap into an inner sense of boundless energy. You don't need many words at this time. Honor the silent knowing deep within and you will come through with renewed vigor.
