Thunder Heaven
Fire Water

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

The successive completed hexagram, #64, deconstructs into a transitioned upper trigram of Fire positioned above a transitioned lower trigram of Water.


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 64

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.

Changing line #6

"Butting Heads"- You are in deadlock. You are either fighting with yourself or with a comrade. There is no winner, no loser, no gain, and no loss. The wise person steps back from the fight and stays put for a time. Current problems will be stopped through acceptance of where you are.


The future hexagram #64:
"Before Completion"

The meaning of hexagram #64

This hexagram implies that a huge transition is underway; however, it has not been completed yet. Chaos has not yet turned to order. Be patient. Spring time is near and soon new growth will sprout up. For a long time you have sought the end of confusion and a dawn of new clarity. This is your higher purpose, and the way to accomplish this task is to lead yourself out of confusion first. The world is a reflection of your state of mind and understandings. All outer change begins inside you. Oppositional forces stand no chance against those who are secure in their inner purpose. Step forward knowing that everything required for this mission is within you.
