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 4

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 #4:
"Youthful Inexperience"

The meaning of hexagram #4

Inexperience is a double edged sword. It leads one to make mistakes, but the mistakes are necessary in order to learn. Do not feign knowledge. Seek out experience and ask what you do not know. Over time, all gaps in knowlege will be filled.
