The meaning of hexagram #50
This hexagram symbolizes a rich cauldron of vitality and nourishment. It is an indication of supreme good fortune and an indication that your mind, body and soul will be well taken care of. The caldron is a container for your hopes, dreams and prayers. It is like a spiritual vessel that stores and then carries your dreams to fruition. Any apparent obstacles in your way will dissolve or be altered in such a way that they then act to propel your endeavors forward. But remember that you are what you consume. Good things come from good thoughts and energies.
The changing lines between hexagram 50 and hexagram 10
Changing line #1
"Overturning the Cauldron"- This will be a time where you easily let go of everything you no longer need. You will rid yourself, your organization and your life of old ideas that no longer serve you. Tip over the cauldron and receive anew all that is fresh and alive.
Changing line #3
"The Cauldron's Handle Snaps"- This line is a reminder to be patient and not get overly frustrated when small problems arise. Ride out the rough spots and soon you will be sailing on once again.
Changing line #5
"Bright Golden Handles"- Here, the cauldron's old handles have been replaced by beautiful new handles, signifying that the right helpers are gathering together at this time. Expect continued success
The future hexagram #10:
The meaning of hexagram #10
This simple looking hexagram relates to circumstances which might be inherently risky. In most cases treading in dangerous places is inadvisable. At this time however, there is very little danger. It is written in the ancient Book of Changes that "One steps on the tail of a tiger at his or her own risk" but the appearance of this hexagram suggests that right now such an act would be ignored (or even seen as playful). A more general reference here could be a mingling of people belonging to different social backgrounds. This sign is typically positive.
