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 6

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 #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 #6:
"Conflict"

The meaning of hexagram #6

The message of this hexagram is that even those who go through life with good-will and the best intentions will at times meet with hostility and powerful opposition. At this time it is advised that conflict be avoided, for conflict at this time (even if justified) will lead to more serious setbacks. There are times when a "cautious halt" can be far more powerful than the most aggressive response.
