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 future hexagram #28:
"Test of Faith"

The meaning of hexagram #28

When walking across a thin and bending beam, one must take heart and have faith that it will hold. This hexagram is a reminder to not bend under the weight of burdens. It is also about a great inner test. You may be in some danger for a short time. Only through letting go of the old and embracing the new can success be attained. A gentle strength is required here.
