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 55

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 #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 #55:
"Abundance and Fullness"

The meaning of hexagram #55

This fortuitous hexagram implies a time of clarity, prosperity and completeness. Like lightning piercing through clouds, success can strike with incredible speed and force. However, the wise person remains cautious and knows that success often comes with associated dangers. Spend your success wisely and save portions for a time of need. Abundance can come and go. Stay in contact with the person within. You are your own best kept treasure. You are what you are seeking, and always have been.
