The changing lines between hexagram 34 and hexagram 5

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 #5:
"Patience"

The meaning of hexagram #5

The lesson of this hexagram is that good things come to those who wait. Patience requires both inner strength and a commitment to resist the temptation of acting prematurely. Often hardships will arise in the course of one's time spent waiting. The message here is that those who endure these hardships, and "cross great streams" will emerge victorious. Do not be put off your path at this time.
