The starting hexagram #57:
"Spreading"

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 9

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.


The future hexagram #9:
"Wind and Clouds"

The meaning of hexagram #9

This hexagram indicates dark clouds on the horizon. There is still no rain, and the clouds do not appear to be moving closer because the wind keeps them at bay. The underlying meaning here is that a weak force is capable of restraining a stronger force. Subtlety is called for here. Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.
