Wind Fire
Wind Earth

The initial hexagram #37 can be broken down into the upper trigram of Wind positioned above the lower trigram of Fire.

The following completed hexagram, #20, deconstructs into an untransformed upper trigram of Wind positioned above a transformed lower trigram of Earth.


The starting hexagram #37:
"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 20

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.


The future hexagram #20:
"Meditation"

The meaning of hexagram #20

The meaning of this hexagram is meditation and contemplation, but the visual significance is that of a tower with a broad view which enables one to meditate on the wider landscape rather than immediate events. An additional meaning of this tower is that the tower itself can be seen for many miles, suggesting "an example" being set for others. This is a time to reflect carefully on what has gone before, and what is happening now in a broader sense. Decisions made at this time will be witnessed by many.
