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 61

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.


The future hexagram #61:
"Inner Truth"

The meaning of hexagram #61

This hexagram signifies a deep bond or feeling of kinship. This is a time when it will be easy to cultivate mutual trust in relationships and partnerships. Let go of any remnants of prejudice you may carry, and seek the beauty and fullness that can be found in all people and things. Realize all life is interconnected. Everyone is one. This is the inner truth you have been seeking, but have never lost. Also indicated here are the differences between what is outside and what is inside yourself. What truly matters to you?
