The starting hexagram #44:
"Coming Together"

The meaning of hexagram #44

This is a good time to examine all the people in your life and ponder why you are connected to them. Look for the higher purpose in all relationships. Consider what this shared journey is teaching you. Don't judge people by their appearances. What lies beneath our outer appearance is what counts most. Form ties with intelligent people who support and share your own intelligence. Connect with like-minded souls. This may not be the best time to solidify a relationship or business partnership. Instead explore why people come together or don't come together in the first place. Coming together must be free of ulterior motives.


The changing lines between hexagram 44 and hexagram 10

Changing line #1

"Avoiding Hungry Bears"- Keep a look out for "hungry bears." These are people who drain your energy and are power hungry. This is a time to assemble your team of comrades slowly and wisely.

Changing line #3

"Associating with the Wise"- Watch out for those who have a history of corruption. Save yourself from misery by associating with people who have no bad history, or who have reformed themselves completely.


The future hexagram #10:
"Steps"

The meaning of hexagram #10

This simple looking hexagram relates to circumstances which might be inherently risky. In most cases treading in dangerous places is inadvisable. At this time however, there is very little danger. It is written in the ancient Book of Changes that "One steps on the tail of a tiger at his or her own risk" but the appearance of this hexagram suggests that right now such an act would be ignored (or even seen as playful). A more general reference here could be a mingling of people belonging to different social backgrounds. This sign is typically positive.
