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 56
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
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 #56:
The meaning of hexagram #56
This hexagram indicates a journey of discovery. It could be an outer journey to a new place or employment, or may reference a journey of self-discovery. This is a time to be sincere and extremely honest with yourself. What are you really looking for? Where do you think it will be found? Wandering over mountain tops, the wise person sees each step as a gift, and knows that home is always right where one stands. If you feel like staying, stay. If you feel like moving, move. Let your heart be your guide.
