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 57

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.

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 #57:
"Spreading"

The meaning of hexagram #57

Like gentle wind wafting through a village, this hexagram suggests a time of influence and change. This is a time when clarity and truth can pierce through veils of illusion. Through earnestness and a sense of quiet peace, you can penetrate the hearts of those around you and spread goodwill and prosperity. This is a time to speak up and let your voice permeate the land. Communicate your wants and needs to those you love. The key here is to be gentle but continual with the expression of your dreams and wishes. Your will has incredible power to spread at this time. Be heard - but be true to yourself.
