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 43
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 #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 #43:
The meaning of hexagram #43
Pressure has been building for some time. Now, like water cracking and bursting through a dam, old restraints are being broken. The river overflows the dam. The truthful finally cast aside the untrue. Tension gives way to motion. Powerful action has been a long time coming. The influences of those who are beneath you suddenly mean very little. A cloudburst. The months of April and May may have special significance to this hexagram.
