Mountain Water
Wind Water

The initial hexagram #4 is composed of the upper trigram of Mountain positioned above the lower trigram of Water.

The secondary changed hexagram, #59, is built from a new, changed upper trigram of Wind 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 59

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.


The future hexagram #59:
"Dispersing"

The meaning of hexagram #59

This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
