"Exhaustion"

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 56

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 #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


The future hexagram #56:
"Traveling"

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.
