Mountain Water
Mountain Heaven

The initial hexagram #4 can be broken down into the upper trigram of Mountain on top of the lower trigram of Water.

The following transformed hexagram, #26, breaks down into an untransformed upper trigram of Mountain on top of a transitioned lower trigram of Heaven.


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 26

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 #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 #26:
"Great Achievements"

The meaning of hexagram #26

This vital hexagram explores the power of holding firm and standing your ground. Don't become distracted by luxury and leisure. Stay the course with courage and inner discipline. This can be a time of great gains and increased well-being, but you must keep your footing despite strong currents tugging at you. Put your ideas/projects into motion. Cross the waters without apprehension. Honor your strengths to achieve great things.
