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 45

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 #4

"Hunting Without Regret"- The wise person will combine modesty with energetic action at this time. Go after what you want without losing sleep over past failures.

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 #45:
"Gathering Together"

The meaning of hexagram #45

Like streams of water flowing together to form a lake, this hexagram symbolizes assembling and uniting. This is a time to focus on teamwork and synergy. Don't attempt to do everything alone. Bring together those who share your goals and support your dreams. This is a time to venture out in your community or work with your family. It is also a time to "gather oneself together." This means concentrating on unifying forces within yourself. This is a time to be whole in yourself. An internal unity will translate into a solid team around you.
