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 39

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 #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 #4

"The Chariot of Oppression"- You are riding through a difficult time. Wait patiently and assistance will arrive.


The future hexagram #39:
"Obstruction"

The meaning of hexagram #39

This foreboding hexagram is a telltale sign of great difficulty and adversity. This is a time to seek guidance and counsel from a wise person, an elder or an entire team. Remember, asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness. This may be a time to seek support and break free of isolation. Perseverance brings good fortune. Stay put for a while if you think it wise. Though you may be stopped in your path on an outer level, let your inner purpose stay true to its course.
