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?

The changing lines between hexagram 37 and hexagram 55

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 #55:
"Abundance and Fullness"

The meaning of hexagram #55

This fortuitous hexagram implies a time of clarity, prosperity and completeness. Like lightning piercing through clouds, success can strike with incredible speed and force. However, the wise person remains cautious and knows that success often comes with associated dangers. Spend your success wisely and save portions for a time of need. Abundance can come and go. Stay in contact with the person within. You are your own best kept treasure. You are what you are seeking, and always have been.
