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.
