The beginning hexagram #50 can be broken down into the upper trigram of Fire above the lower trigram of Wind.

The following changed hexagram, #46, deconstructs into a new, changed upper trigram of Earth above an unchanged lower trigram of Wind.


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 46

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 #46:
"Rising Up"

The meaning of hexagram #46

This welcome hexagram symbolizes a lasting elevation in status or well being. A raise or promotion is very likely to occur at this time. Endeavors will turn out successfully, fires will be put out and chaos will turn to calmness. However, this is not a time to slack off from responsibility. Take actions deliberately. Place one foot in front of the other with solidity and purpose. Stay focused and conscious. Be like the tree trunk that grows strong and steady towards the sky.
