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 15

Changing line #2

"Caring for the Fish Pond"- This is a time to make good use of all resources. Treat your co-workers, family or colleagues with respect and dignity. Don't neglect your own good qualities or the good qualities you see in others.

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


The future hexagram #15:
"Modesty and Progress"

The meaning of hexagram #15

This hexagram symbolizes the two concepts of modesty and progress. The suggestion here is that progress at this time can best be accomplished through a modest approach. Self promotion or boasting are seen as strong negatives here. Actions will speak far louder than self-serving words. If something is unknown, ask without shame. Feigning knowledge brings misfortune.
