"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.

"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.

"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.


The future hexagram #53:
"Gradual Progress"

The meaning of hexagram #53

Like a young sapling slowly reaching toward the sky, this hexagram portends an incremental process toward new achievements. This is a time to put all your energy and attention directly on the step you are currently on. Too frequently we focus on the final destination without focusing on all the fascinating destinations along the way. Let each step be its own adventure and it's own goal. Now is the time to focus on today. Tomorrow will still come.
