The starting hexagram #34:
"Great Power"

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 40

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.


The future hexagram #40:
"Deliverance"

The meaning of hexagram #40

"Freedom from hardship" is the meaning of this welcome hexagram. Some challenges will still lie ahead, but the stage has been set for success. You have disentangled yourself from opposing forces. Your projects, ideas and dreams are destined to come to fruition. This is a time to rally your support base, and clear the air of any tensions and grievances. This is a time to forgive and forget. Let worries wash away like water.
