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 43

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 #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"Bright Golden Handles"- Here, the cauldron's old handles have been replaced by beautiful new handles, signifying that the right helpers are gathering together at this time.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

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 #43:
"Breaking Through"

The meaning of hexagram #43

Pressure has been building for some time. Now, like water cracking and bursting through a dam, old restraints are being broken. The river overflows the dam. The truthful finally cast aside the untrue. Tension gives way to motion. Powerful action has been a long time coming. The influences of those who are beneath you suddenly mean very little. A cloudburst. The months of April and May may have special significance to this hexagram.
