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 25

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 #5

"Shooting an Arrow Straight On"- This image implies a situation where you will be praised for your talents. You will make friends easily, even if you are in a new land


The future hexagram #25:
"Innocence"

The meaning of hexagram #25

Your innermost nature is innocent, free from blame and always spiritually worthy. Only the outer persona - the role we play - is subject to blame. Being human, one gets subject to misfortunes. This is a time to be authentically self-forgiving for all that you think you have done wrong. Your deepest and most natural self is not to blame. Suffering comes by not knowing what you are underneath all those layers of personality. Be natural and unpretentious. This hexagram is a reminder that underneath there is innocence.
