The starting hexagram #50:
"The Cauldron"

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 15

Changing line #2

"A Filled Cauldron"- Your life will become filled with helpful and capable people. Ignore those who are envious of your achievements. Their opinions are small and insignificant and they cannot touch the deep sense of certainty you will have going forward.

Changing line #4

"The Cauldron's Leg Breaks"- This line implies a setback. Take a breather and reevaluate the situation. This is a time to start over or receive support. With clear intentions you will avoid being disgraced

Changing line #6

"Decorated with Jade"- A cauldron decorated with jade means good fortune. Your work, health, friendships and family relations will come into greater harmony.


The future hexagram #15:
"Modesty and Progress"

The meaning of hexagram #15

This hexagram symbolizes the two concepts of modesty and progress. The suggestion here is that progress at this time can best be accomplished through a modest approach. Self promotion or boasting are seen as strong negatives here. Actions will speak far louder than self-serving words. If something is unknown, ask without shame. Feigning knowledge brings misfortune.
