"Traveling"

The meaning of hexagram #56

This hexagram indicates a journey of discovery. It could be an outer journey to a new place or employment, or may reference a journey of self-discovery. This is a time to be sincere and extremely honest with yourself. What are you really looking for? Where do you think it will be found? Wandering over mountain tops, the wise person sees each step as a gift, and knows that home is always right where one stands. If you feel like staying, stay. If you feel like moving, move. Let your heart be your guide.


The changing lines between hexagram 56 and hexagram 24

Changing line #1

"Ignoring Trivial Concerns"- If you focus on trivial worries as you journey through life, this will lead to misfortune. There is no reason to get defensive at this time. Treat others with respect and they will treat you the same.

Changing line #3

"The Burning Inn"- Extend kindness to strangers on the path. The image of the burning Inn implies you have over-stayed your welcome. Accept this news and move on

Changing line #4

"Visiting a Small Shelter"- This line means to be grateful for even the simplest pleasures in life. Limit your desires to that which you can really use. Travel lightly.

Changing line #6

"The Burning Nest"- This will be a time when you lose your resting place. Though unfortunate, the wise person continues on, trusting that this loss is all for the best in the end.


The future hexagram #24:
"The Turning Point"

The meaning of hexagram #24

This welcome hexagram signifies a return to walking the proper path. The light has returned and cuts through the darkness. Walk with your head held high, knowing there is fruit to bear in every direction. Like the winter solstice, this is a time of new beginnings and opportunities. It is a time of true health and clarity.
