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 meaning of hexagram #41
Like a wooden foundation that has become weak and flimsy, this hexagram signifies a time of instability. Be careful, this could be a time of decreased prosperity. If handled wisely however, the future may hold a simple redistribution of funds. Simplicity and integrity are the keys here. If you reduce your goals, others will support your efforts. Reducing your immediate expectations may be a necessary step toward your greater dreams and aspirations. This is not a time to panic. It is a time to value simplicity and enjoy the natural world.
