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 55

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 #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 #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 #55:
"Abundance and Fullness"

The meaning of hexagram #55

This fortuitous hexagram implies a time of clarity, prosperity and completeness. Like lightning piercing through clouds, success can strike with incredible speed and force. However, the wise person remains cautious and knows that success often comes with associated dangers. Spend your success wisely and save portions for a time of need. Abundance can come and go. Stay in contact with the person within. You are your own best kept treasure. You are what you are seeking, and always have been.
