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 54
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.
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 #54:
The meaning of hexagram #54
This hexagram indicates growing distances from one's romantic partners or comrades. But simultaneously it shines light on the path back to romance and love: Kindness and communication. Kindness and communication are the unifying forces in the world. You will be given the opportunity to direct your affection toward someone you previously distanced yourself from, and so re-create a stronger bond with them. Another indication here is that of exclusion from a larger circle of friends -- be conscious of your connections with others at this time. Move forward with integrity and don't form relationships out of convenience or formality.
