The starting hexagram #48:
"The Well"

The meaning of hexagram #48

An inexhaustible supply of water and sustenance are referenced by this hexagram. This is a time to make good use of all your resources. But if the well seems to have run dry, or the supply cannot be accessed, the solution lies in banding together with others for the good of all. This is a time to group together despite differences. It is time to draw from the well of knowledge. Let life itself sustain you. The wise person knows that despite superficial differences, we are all the same on the inside. Draw your sustenance from the entire kingdom. Good can come from anywhere and everywhere.


The changing lines between hexagram 48 and hexagram 1

Changing line #1

"Muddy Water"- If those around you are not suitable helpers toward your goal, then draw from a higher well. Empty the mud-filled bucket and seek from a larger pool.

Changing line #4

"Repairing the Well"- This is a good time for redesigning relationships, in both business and pleasure. Discuss the agendas and the agreements you are operating from. Make changes if necessary.

Changing line #6

"Sharing the Well"- Just as the well is used by the entire town, the wise individual shares their services and empowers everyone they meet with their resources. Your inner wealth is inexhaustible, and the more you give the more you get.


The future hexagram #1:
"Creativity (Heaven)"

The meaning of hexagram #1

Heaven signifies the ultimate creative force. This hexagram formed of six unbroken lines signifies the purest form of power and positive energy. An expression of pure truth and strength that exceeds all worldly, physical or immediate concerns. A time of profound thought and conscious creation.
