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 9
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 #4
"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 #9:
"Wind and Clouds"
The meaning of hexagram #9
This hexagram indicates dark clouds on the horizon. There is still no rain, and the clouds do not appear to be moving closer because the wind keeps them at bay. The underlying meaning here is that a weak force is capable of restraining a stronger force. Subtlety is called for here. Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.
