The meaning of hexagram #34
As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude.

New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
The changing lines between hexagram 34 and hexagram 29
Changing line #1
"Feet Alone Are not Enough"- If your experience of your power is "only in your feet," this implies it is too soon to step forward. It means you have not awakened yet to your full potential. Let your strength emerge into your entire body and being before you walk forward. Seek allies that nourish your own strength. Only by gaining support from others will your power grow to its full potential.
Changing line #3
"Using Strength Wisely"- Stay mindful of where and how you direct your energy and power. Why exert it against an electrically charged barb-wire fence, when there is no reason to go through it? The wise person withdraws from activities/people that waste their energy.
Changing line #4
"Opened Gates"- There are no obstacles holding you back at this time. Step forward knowing you are on track.
Changing line #5
"Letting go of the Goat"- This image means: If you suffer a setback, give up remorse. You are strong but you are not all powerful. See your limits and forgive yourself for them. Giving up something you have been clinging to is your best option
The future hexagram #29:
The meaning of hexagram #29
Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
