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 62

"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 #62:
The meaning of hexagram #62
This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
