Lake Water
Earth Water

The first hexagram #47 can be broken down into the upper trigram of Lake over the lower trigram of Water.

The successive completed hexagram, #7, is built from a new, changed upper trigram of Earth over an unchanged lower trigram of Water.


The starting hexagram #47:
"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 7

Changing line #4

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

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 #7:
"The Army"

The meaning of hexagram #7

Even with powerful allies and armies, no success is possible if leadership wavers. Good leadership requires public strength, but more importantly: private discipline. Remember to treat your allies well, and support the greater good. Success at this time will be the result of strong interpersonal ties and dedicated personal discipline. To indulge one's ego or one's own personal ambitions will fail. A unified force will succeed. The importance of clear communication is also referenced here.
