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 48
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 #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.
The future hexagram #48:
The meaning of hexagram #48
An inexhaustible supply of water and sustenance are referenced by this hexagram. This is a time to make good use of all your resources. But if the well seems to have run dry, or the supply cannot be accessed, the solution lies in banding together with others for the good of all. This is a time to group together despite differences. It is time to draw from the well of knowledge. Let life itself sustain you. The wise person knows that despite superficial differences, we are all the same on the inside. Draw your sustenance from the entire kingdom. Good can come from anywhere and everywhere.
