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 25

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 #3

"Clear Water"- The water in your well is pure. Drink it. This means don't let good people go to waste. They are here to support you. Drink from the well of support.

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 #25:
"Innocence"

The meaning of hexagram #25

Your innermost nature is innocent, free from blame and always spiritually worthy. Only the outer persona - the role we play - is subject to blame. Being human, one gets subject to misfortunes. This is a time to be authentically self-forgiving for all that you think you have done wrong. Your deepest and most natural self is not to blame. Suffering comes by not knowing what you are underneath all those layers of personality. Be natural and unpretentious. This hexagram is a reminder that underneath there is innocence.
