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 62
Changing line #2
"Return Home"- There are times in which the only way to avoid conflict is to retreat. At this time, since conflict is to be avoided, it is advised that even a retreat is better than to engage in hostilities. Such actions will ultimately benefit your entire household and community. There is no shame in a retreat at this time.
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 #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 #62:
The meaning of hexagram #62
This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.
