"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 42

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 #42:
"Increase"

The meaning of hexagram #42

Like wind growing stronger and thunder growing louder, this hexagram signifies a time of building up and amassing of energies. A time of prosperity, increased health and vitality is drawing near. Use this increased flow of good fortune to support others, foster your education or start a business. Expect a burst of creative power that will be sustained easily. Shoulder your responsibility wisely. Let forces combine for greater abundance and let your inner drive propel you forward.
