Thunder Wind
Thunder Thunder

The first hexagram #32 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Thunder above the lower trigram of Wind.

The following completed hexagram, #51, can be broken down into an untransformed upper trigram of Thunder above a newly transformed lower trigram of Thunder.


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 51

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 #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


The future hexagram #51:
"A Powerful Jolt"

The meaning of hexagram #51

Just as a clap of thunder brings a jolt to the sky, this hexagram signifies the imminence of a powerful jolt to one's life. Expect a new event, person or idea to shake up your world. This could prove to be a wonderful wake-up call. Although a layer of fear may arise at the onset of the jolt, overall this is a time when fear will transform into excitement. You will laugh amidst the chaos. Eyes once closed will now see. Shock brings a return of energy and power. Outer circumstances will be seen in a new light. New answers and new solutions will appear before you. Or perhaps they were there all along?
