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 58

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 #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.


The future hexagram #58:
"Joyousness"

The meaning of hexagram #58

This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
