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 28
Changing line #2
"Proceeding with Sincerity"- Yield to your power of attraction and magnetism. This power will serve you well at this time. Your strength is your sincerity and this is the power that draws others to you.
Changing line #3
"Gathering with a Common Cause"- Don't gather together with the wrong people, lest your idea/cause/project will meet with strong objections. Secure those who share your vision. Put yourself in other people's shoes and you will succeed
The future hexagram #28:
"Test of Faith"
The meaning of hexagram #28
When walking across a thin and bending beam, one must take heart and have faith that it will hold. This hexagram is a reminder to not bend under the weight of burdens. It is also about a great inner test. You may be in some danger for a short time. Only through letting go of the old and embracing the new can success be attained. A gentle strength is required here.
