Thunder Wind
Wind Mountain

The initial hexagram #32 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Thunder over the lower trigram of Wind.

The successive transformed hexagram, #53, breaks down into a new, changed upper trigram of Wind over a new, changed lower trigram of Mountain.


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 53

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

Changing line #6

"Allowing Inner Composure"- When restlessness governs a relationship or partnership, it is unlikely to last. By taking the time to gain inner composure, relationships will flourish and endure


The future hexagram #53:
"Gradual Progress"

The meaning of hexagram #53

Like a young sapling slowly reaching toward the sky, this hexagram portends an incremental process toward new achievements. This is a time to put all your energy and attention directly on the step you are currently on. Too frequently we focus on the final destination without focusing on all the fascinating destinations along the way. Let each step be its own adventure and it's own goal. Now is the time to focus on today. Tomorrow will still come.
