Thunder Heaven
Thunder Thunder

The initial hexagram #34 is built from the upper trigram of Thunder over the lower trigram of Heaven.

The following changed hexagram, #51, breaks down into a preserved, unchanged upper trigram of Thunder over a newly transformed lower trigram of Thunder.


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 51

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 #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 #51:
"A Powerful Jolt"

The meaning of hexagram #51

Just as a clap of thunder brings a jolt to the sky, this hexagram signifies the imminence of a powerful jolt to one's life. Expect a new event, person or idea to shake up your world. This could prove to be a wonderful wake-up call. Although a layer of fear may arise at the onset of the jolt, overall this is a time when fear will transform into excitement. You will laugh amidst the chaos. Eyes once closed will now see. Shock brings a return of energy and power. Outer circumstances will be seen in a new light. New answers and new solutions will appear before you. Or perhaps they were there all along?
