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.

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.
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 meaning of hexagram #26
This vital hexagram explores the power of holding firm and standing your ground. Don't become distracted by luxury and leisure. Stay the course with courage and inner discipline. This can be a time of great gains and increased well-being, but you must keep your footing despite strong currents tugging at you. Put your ideas/projects into motion. Cross the waters without apprehension. Honor your strengths to achieve great things.
