The meaning of hexagram #57

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 27

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 #2

"Kneeling Before an Alter"- This line is suggestive of the power of humility. If you want your ideas to flourish and be received well by others, spread them out as if you are kneeling before the Divine.

Changing line #3

"Spreading Ideas Respectfully"- This is not a time to be over zealous or impose your will upon others. If you want to assist or influence others, don't come across as a fanatic. You may have to change your viewpoint if you cannot succeed in sharing it respectfully

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.


The future hexagram #27:
"Nourishment"

The meaning of hexagram #27

The image of an open mouth is portrayed by this hexagram. This is a time to nourish one's body, mind and spirit. It is also a time to delight in nourishing others. Remember, giving and receiving are not inherently different. To give is to receive. Feed yourself with good ideas, good actions, good books, good teachers and good people.
