Water Wind
Mountain Fire

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 22

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 #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

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 #22:
"Grace"

The meaning of hexagram #22

Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form - the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one's wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don't over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.
