The meaning of hexagram #45
Like streams of water flowing together to form a lake, this hexagram symbolizes assembling and uniting. This is a time to focus on teamwork and synergy. Don't attempt to do everything alone. Bring together those who share your goals and support your dreams. This is a time to venture out in your community or work with your family. It is also a time to "gather oneself together." This means concentrating on unifying forces within yourself. This is a time to be whole in yourself. An internal unity will translate into a solid team around you.
The changing lines between hexagram 45 and hexagram 21
Changing line #1
"Setting Morals High"- When working with others, keep your standards high. Involve yourself in high-quality, team-building enterprises. The result will be successful.
Changing line #5
"Sharing of Purpose"- Gathering with others will fuel and enhance the shared purpose. If everyone did not see eye-to-eye at first, they will soon.
Changing line #6
"Proceeding through the Opposition"- Don't let naysayers block your team's progress. Let others sigh or weep as they see fit. Stay resolute to your vision.
The future hexagram #21:
The meaning of hexagram #21
This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
