Mountain Water
Earth Lake

The starting hexagram #4:
"Youthful Inexperience"

The meaning of hexagram #4

Inexperience is a double edged sword. It leads one to make mistakes, but the mistakes are necessary in order to learn. Do not feign knowledge. Seek out experience and ask what you do not know. Over time, all gaps in knowlege will be filled.


The changing lines between hexagram 4 and hexagram 19

Changing line #1

"Discipline" - Firmness and discipline is vital to development. But remember to remove the shackles of discipline because too much leads to negative developments.

Changing line #6

"Transgressions do not Further One" - There comes a time when foolishness must be punished or when those who are foolish must be left to their own misery. Remember though, that one's response should be measured, and not the result of emotion. To overreact with a loss of control is to be foolish as well.


The future hexagram #19:
"Approaching"

The meaning of hexagram #19

This hexagram references the positive concepts of anticipation and expectation. A time of growing power and energies which have not yet revealed themselves. Diligence and focus must be at maximal levels because a time of great flourishing is near. The period of late winter (just prior to the springtime) is also referenced here.
