The meaning of hexagram #43
Pressure has been building for some time. Now, like water cracking and bursting through a dam, old restraints are being broken. The river overflows the dam. The truthful finally cast aside the untrue. Tension gives way to motion. Powerful action has been a long time coming. The influences of those who are beneath you suddenly mean very little. A cloudburst. The months of April and May may have special significance to this hexagram.
The changing lines between hexagram 43 and hexagram 15
Changing line #1
"Stepping With Wise Feet"- This is not a time to plunge blindly and fervently ahead. Be resolute, but gauge your own strength as you attempt to go forward. Current problems may be a result of not looking where you are stepping
Changing line #2
"Keeping Alert"- This line is a reminder to keep constant vigilance. Step forward while staying aware of any potential threats and any opportunities. Continuously listen for cries of alarm.
Changing line #4
"Stepping Out of Inner Conflict"- This could be a time of inner restlessness and feeling cut off from your power. Learn from your mistakes. Current problems can be eradicated by letting go of the feeling of stubbornness.
Changing line #5
"Weeding the Garden"- Just as weeds continually rear up again and again, so to do difficult people in your life. This is a time to be resolute in your actions. If you feel it is best to let someone go from your life, do so.
The future hexagram #15:
"Modesty and Progress"
The meaning of hexagram #15
This hexagram symbolizes the two concepts of modesty and progress. The suggestion here is that progress at this time can best be accomplished through a modest approach. Self promotion or boasting are seen as strong negatives here. Actions will speak far louder than self-serving words. If something is unknown, ask without shame. Feigning knowledge brings misfortune.
