"Family"

The meaning of hexagram #37

This hexagram reminds us that our relationships with family and friends can provide us with insight. We see reflections of ourselves in our relationships with those around us. Family is a microcosm. We must observe the ties we have with our family members and understand our place in the family to gain perspective on ourselves. Who holds authority in your family? Who plays the part of a follower? In which directions does love flow or not flow? Observe all aspects of family life. Valuable nuggets of insight are available now.


The changing lines between hexagram 37 and hexagram 12

Changing line #1

"Creating Order"- To bring strength to the family as a whole, establishing rules of conduct and attitude is beneficial.

Changing line #3

"Solidifying through Arguments"- When tempers flare, and you feel separate from your family, don't assume rupture is all that there is. With any family argument, a door has actually been flung open, offering a path toward deeper closeness to the tribe. What may seem like a dividing gap is really a bridge to a deeper connection. Make amends and see that you can count on your family in times of need.

Changing line #4

"Cooperating is the Key to Prosperity"- Success comes when all family members work as a cohesive unit. There is great power in synergy


The future hexagram #12:
"Stagnation"

The meaning of hexagram #12

This ominous hexagram symbolizes heaven and earth out of balance. Creative energies are flowing the wrong way, and little is accomplished. Ideas and projects stagnate, and enthusiasm disappears. Those who are not worthy of accomplishment are on the rise. Lesser men and women dominate the scene. Wise men note that the situation is dangerous and withdraw into introspection, modesty and meditation. Very little of value can be accomplished at this time.
