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 15
Changing line #2
"Separating the Fish" - This is a time to keep closed-hearted people at bay. Swim in other waters. Don't let others contaminate your peace of mind.
Changing line #4
"Bad Fish in the River"- The river of your life could contain unscrupulous people at this time. Don't let their negativity spread over to you. Be careful.
Changing line #5
"Using your Influence"- This is a time to tolerate and protect all the unwise people in your sphere of life. Such people will respond well to your influence.
Changing line #6
"Avoiding Arrogance"- Don't toot your own horn. Be indifferent to whether other people judge you or praise you.
The future hexagram #15:
"Modesty and Progress"
The meaning of hexagram #15
This hexagram symbolizes the two concepts of modesty and progress. The suggestion here is that progress at this time can best be accomplished through a modest approach. Self promotion or boasting are seen as strong negatives here. Actions will speak far louder than self-serving words. If something is unknown, ask without shame. Feigning knowledge brings misfortune.
