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 21
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.
Changing line #6
"Not Letting Struggles Stop You"- If you are not resolved to fully and finally break free of inner strife, this may be a time of misfortune. The wise person walks away from an unhealthy mindset and doesn't let inner struggles stop them from taking their next steps in life.
The future hexagram #21:
The meaning of hexagram #21
This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
