Mountain Water
Water Water

The first hexagram #4 can be broken down into the upper trigram of Mountain positioned above the lower trigram of Water.

The secondary completed hexagram, #29, is built from a new, changed upper trigram of Water positioned above a preserved lower trigram of Water.


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 29

Changing line #5

"Youthful Inexperience Brings Luck" - Beginners luck reminds the wise that wisdom alone is not the path to achieving one's goals. Beginners can often make up for their lack of wisdom with enthusiasm and new ideas. A young person may be surprisingly helpful. Do not be afraid to try new things at this time. A new approach.

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 #29:
"Pitfalls"

The meaning of hexagram #29

Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
