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 54
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 #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
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 #54:
The meaning of hexagram #54
This hexagram indicates growing distances from one's romantic partners or comrades. But simultaneously it shines light on the path back to romance and love: Kindness and communication. Kindness and communication are the unifying forces in the world. You will be given the opportunity to direct your affection toward someone you previously distanced yourself from, and so re-create a stronger bond with them. Another indication here is that of exclusion from a larger circle of friends -- be conscious of your connections with others at this time. Move forward with integrity and don't form relationships out of convenience or formality.
