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 future hexagram #58:
"Joyousness"

The meaning of hexagram #58

This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
