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 62

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


The future hexagram #62:
"Smallness"

The meaning of hexagram #62

This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
