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.

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 #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


The future hexagram #4:
"Youthful Inexperience"

The meaning of hexagram #4

Inexperience is a double edged sword. It leads one to make mistakes, but the mistakes are necessary in order to learn. Do not feign knowledge. Seek out experience and ask what you do not know. Over time, all gaps in knowlege will be filled.
