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 16

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 #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.

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 #16:
"Approval"

The meaning of hexagram #16

This hexagram with only one solid line indicates approval and enthusiastic support for actions and decisions. One strong line exists among many weaker supporting lines. In matters involving group decisions, consensus will be reached, and a single point of view will be shared among many. In personal matters, a choice will be respected, admired or obeyed. Unity is referenced here. Many act as one, because the one acts with confidence and clear leadership.
