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 49

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 #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 #49:
"Transformation"

The meaning of hexagram #49

This hexagram implies a time of great change. It is important to remember that there will be no mistakes made at this time. Change is what happens -- not just what is intended. This is a time of shedding the old and seeing with fresh eyes. A geographic move may be referenced here. This could also be a time of new employment, new understandings or new solutions. You may find yourself undergoing an inner transformation, where you de-throne old attitudes that no longer serve your vision. Let events happen. Change will wash over you like water.
