The changing lines between hexagram 37 and hexagram 46

Changing line #1

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

Changing line #2

"Nourishing Everyone"- Whether or not there is a central bread winner, a family that evenly divides the chores and duties will forge a stronger bond.

Changing line #5

"Trust Fosters Connectivity"- Whether you are a leader or a follower in the family, trust is what matters most. The kids must trust the adults, the adults must trust the kids, and the couple must trust each other. Trust brings true wealth to even the poorest family.

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 #46:
"Rising Up"

The meaning of hexagram #46

This welcome hexagram symbolizes a lasting elevation in status or well being. A raise or promotion is very likely to occur at this time. Endeavors will turn out successfully, fires will be put out and chaos will turn to calmness. However, this is not a time to slack off from responsibility. Take actions deliberately. Place one foot in front of the other with solidity and purpose. Stay focused and conscious. Be like the tree trunk that grows strong and steady towards the sky.
