The changing lines between hexagram 47 and hexagram 35

Changing line #2

"Escaping Inner Oppression"- All is well on the outer level. But inside you are still likely to feel oppressed at this time. Patience, community, optimism and spiritual connection are the keys to this difficult time.

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.

Changing line #6

"Escaping From Vines"- Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. That which is keeping you tied down is nothing more than a creeping vine that can easily be torn away. Set yourself free

Like the Sun rising effortlessly upward at the dawn of a new day, you will find yourself elevated to new heights.
