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 16
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 #3
"Severing Ties"- Be willing to walk alone if others do not share your cause. If someone does remain by your side who does not share your vision, you must find a way to avoid participation in their negative mindset. Cut yourself off from their negativity by listening to your own positive voice. Turn attention inward, not outward, and you will vanquish problems
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 #16:
The meaning of hexagram #16
This hexagram with only one solid line indicates approval and enthusiastic support for actions and decisions. One strong line exists among many weaker supporting lines. In matters involving group decisions, consensus will be reached, and a single point of view will be shared among many. In personal matters, a choice will be respected, admired or obeyed. Unity is referenced here. Many act as one, because the one acts with confidence and clear leadership.
