Mountain Water
Mountain Fire

The first hexagram #4 is built from the upper trigram of Mountain over the lower trigram of Water.

The following changed hexagram, #22, can be broken down into a preserved, unchanged upper trigram of Mountain over a transitioned lower trigram of Fire.


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 22

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 #2

"Show tolerance to the Fool" - The person who has a strong character exercises patience and resolve in dealing with those who act rashly and stupidly. Act with inner strength, and extreme tolerance and the issues at hand will be resolved. When others act emotionally it will fall to you to keep a cool head.

Changing line #3

"To Lose Posession of Self" - This line references strength of character and resolve within relationships. One should stay true to one's commitments and not waiver in the face of materialistic opportunity. An unfaithful man or woman may be referenced here.


The future hexagram #22:
"Grace"

The meaning of hexagram #22

Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form - the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one's wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
