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 29

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 #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 #29:
"Pitfalls"

The meaning of hexagram #29

Dangers and challenges are indicated in this unwelcome hexagram. Faith and connection to others are your lifelines during this doubly dangerous time. Confront all dangers headfirst. Summon your strength and rise to the call. This is a time to take charge. Don't run away from yourself or your problems. To give up at this time may prove disastrous.
