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 63

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 #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

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 #63:
"Completion"

The meaning of hexagram #63

A transition from chaos to order is referenced by this hexagram. You have come a long way but the journey is not over. Like a traveler who has traversed a difficult and wide river, you appear to approach your destination. But the river bank is not the final stopping place. The most difficult work is over, but the wise person never stops moving onward in incremental steps. You are entering new territory and it will be smooth going at first. A new relationship or project will get off to the perfect beginning. But stay balanced internally and externally, or else the road ahead could become bumpy. Completion and beginning are deeply connected. Only one part of your journey is ending.
