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 60

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 #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 #60:
"Limitation"

The meaning of hexagram #60

This hexagram is a reminder of boundaries and edges. It implies containment and conservation of funds and energies. Financially, this is a time to tighten your belt. Health wise, this is a time to respect the limits of health and safety. Romance wise, this is a time to recognize the boundaries and limits that others set. Discover your line in the sand. Be conservative in your affairs and the doors to success will stay open. Just as the shore gives shape to a lake, so also do limits and boundaries give shape to your life. Know these lines, and what is within them will grow in power and meaning.
