Fire Wind
Fire Thunder

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 21

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 #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 #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.


The future hexagram #21:
"Jaws"

The meaning of hexagram #21

This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
