The changing lines between hexagram 37 and hexagram 3
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 #6
"Directing with Truth"- Only the foolhardy individual uses deceit to try to bond a family together or get their way within its structure. The wise family member uses sincerity and inner truth in all actions and communications. Sincerity should be the guiding light in any team endeavor, be it in family or business.
The future hexagram #3:
"Trouble at the Start"
The meaning of hexagram #3
This hexagram indicates progress after a difficult or delayed beginning. New projects or ambitions should be carefully planned before beginning. Consider the help of close friends or a trusted associate: their help will guarantee your success in the matter at hand. Storms may also be indicated here.
