The meaning of hexagram #47

Oppression and feelings of constraint are the qualities embodied by this foreboding hexagram. This is a time when you may not be taken seriously and may grow weary of such treatment. Others may try to smother you or keep you trapped into playing an old role. It is a time of oppression. But fear not. The challenges will make you a better person. By accessing an inner sense of stability it is possible to stay cheerful in these trying times, and you will then tap into an inner sense of boundless energy. You don't need many words at this time. Honor the silent knowing deep within and you will come through with renewed vigor.


The changing lines between hexagram 47 and hexagram 34

Changing line #1

"Traversing the Valley of Gloom"- Due to lack of preparedness, mistakes are likely at this time. It could take a while for you to get through this time period. Be patient. The journey through gloom will end within three months.

Changing line #3

"Buried by Stones"- This is a difficult time period. If you are in relationship, your partner can help shift things for you. If you are not, you will have to get through this trying time alone. Don't lean on what cannot support you. Ride things out and you will return to a sense of freedom.

Changing line #5

"Injured Feet"- Movement forward on your path is halted. You may be asked to leave your job, or sever a bond. As hard as this may be, it is necessary in order to make room for something better.


The future hexagram #34:
"Great Power"

The meaning of hexagram #34

As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
