The starting hexagram #6:
The meaning of hexagram #6
The message of this hexagram is that even those who go through life with good-will and the best intentions will at times meet with hostility and powerful opposition. At this time it is advised that conflict be avoided, for conflict at this time (even if justified) will lead to more serious setbacks. There are times when a "cautious halt" can be far more powerful than the most aggressive response.
The changing lines between hexagram 6 and hexagram 46
Changing line #3
"Danger"- A change in this line is a warning that things are imminently about to become dangerous or risky. An avoidance of conflict will result in good news. It should be noted however that the credit for some of your actions will go to another. Do not resist this at this time. Be content with the good fortune that comes your way.
Changing line #4
"Turn Back. Submit to Fate"- Conflict at this time may be especially tempting because victory will be seemingly at hand. A change in this line represents a special warning that just because something "can" be won, does not mean that it "should" be. Find peace in perseverance and a change of attitude. Only through avoidance of conflict can you truly succeed.
Changing line #5
"Contend Before Him"- There are times when conflicts must be brought before a third party who will judge the merits of the case. At this time you should have faith that a third party will judge fairly and (if you are in the right), this judgement carries supreme good fortune.
Changing line #6
"The Belt is Bestowed"- A change in this line is a warning against the pursuit of a prize at this time. If one enters a conflict and emerges victorious, he will be given awards and favors. The warning here, however, is that these awards will be "snatched away", and you will spend all your energy defending your new position. Misery comes after victory.
The future hexagram #46:
The meaning of hexagram #46
This welcome hexagram symbolizes a lasting elevation in status or well being. A raise or promotion is very likely to occur at this time. Endeavors will turn out successfully, fires will be put out and chaos will turn to calmness. However, this is not a time to slack off from responsibility. Take actions deliberately. Place one foot in front of the other with solidity and purpose. Stay focused and conscious. Be like the tree trunk that grows strong and steady towards the sky.
