Like gentle wind wafting through a village, this hexagram suggests a time of influence and change. This is a time when clarity and truth can pierce through veils of illusion. Through earnestness and a sense of quiet peace, you can penetrate the hearts of those around you and spread goodwill and prosperity. This is a time to speak up and let your voice permeate the land. Communicate your wants and needs to those you love. The key here is to be gentle but continual with the expression of your dreams and wishes. Your will has incredible power to spread at this time. Be heard - but be true to yourself.


The changing lines between hexagram 57 and hexagram 11

Changing line #1

"Persevering through Doubts"- Don't let your doubts stop you from advancing. Persistence will empower you to tear right through doubt and thus progress toward your goal.

Changing line #5

"Perseverance Brings Good Fortune"- Before you take action, ponder it for three days. After you have taken action, observe the results of it for three days. Current problems will improve by making wise decisions.

Changing line #6

"Perseverance Brings Misunderstanding"- This line means your personal will was not able to penetrate the heart of another. You are unlikely to get your way at this time. Friends/partners/lovers may misunderstand you. Stand back and don't try to change anyone else. Leave well enough alone.


The future hexagram #11:
"Peace"

The meaning of hexagram #11

This powerful hexagram which in its most literal sense means "heaven" supporting the "earth" is an indication of peace and favorable times. This is a sign of prosperity, plenty and success. Heaven and the Earth are in spiritual contact at this time, and a harmony exists between them. Positive energy overwhelms and it is the responsibility of all to use and channel that energy wisely and for good.
