The starting hexagram #56:
"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 59

Changing line #2

"Your Needs are Met Easily"- There will be sufficient funds, food, shelter and friendships to help you on your journey. Relax. This is a time when you are touched by grace.

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 #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 #59:
"Dispersing"

The meaning of hexagram #59

This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
