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 meaning of hexagram #49
This hexagram implies a time of great change. It is important to remember that there will be no mistakes made at this time. Change is what happens -- not just what is intended. This is a time of shedding the old and seeing with fresh eyes. A geographic move may be referenced here. This could also be a time of new employment, new understandings or new solutions. You may find yourself undergoing an inner transformation, where you de-throne old attitudes that no longer serve your vision. Let events happen. Change will wash over you like water.
