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 14

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 #5

"Cold and Fresh Water"- This line is a sign of being on the right track. Put your words into action. Trust that the outcome will be successful

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 #14:
"Plenty"

The meaning of hexagram #14

This hexagram which is literally read to mean "Fire in the Heavens" symbolizes the life-giving "Sun". The Sun is the source of all wealth and abundance and references a time of prosperity and plenty. With abundance comes the power to do great things and to create positive change. At the same time, the Sun carries a warning not to create waste, or to use this time of plenty for personal gluttony. An abundance of something is coming your way. Use it wisely. Also: Early mornings bring success.
