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 62
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.
The future hexagram #62:
The meaning of hexagram #62
This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
