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. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. 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 31

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 #2

"Taking a Stand"- You have great power to rise above current challenges. Feel your immense power, but use it wisely and in right measure. Persevere without over-using your power and you will turn failure into success. Access an inner sense of equilibrium so that you may stand strong directly where you are

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 #31:
"Influence"

The meaning of hexagram #31

We are all interconnected and we all affect each other's lives. This hexagram symbolizes the power each of us has to support one another, change and charm one another. This is a time to cooperate and connect. The deeper and broader meaning of relationships comes into play as one explores the ways that friends and lovers change each other. This will be a time when you easily bring someone new into your life. You can understand your lover/partner/co-worker by studying them and their movements. Win their approval with your loyalty and steadfast vision.
