Water Lake
Wind Earth

The beginning hexagram #60 is built from the upper trigram of Water on top of the lower trigram of Lake.

The following changed hexagram, #20, is built from a transitioned upper trigram of Wind on top of a transitioned lower trigram of Earth.


The starting hexagram #60:
"Limitation"

The meaning of hexagram #60

This hexagram is a reminder of boundaries and edges. It implies containment and conservation of funds and energies. Financially, this is a time to tighten your belt. Health wise, this is a time to respect the limits of health and safety. Romance wise, this is a time to recognize the boundaries and limits that others set. Discover your line in the sand. Be conservative in your affairs and the doors to success will stay open. Just as the shore gives shape to a lake, so also do limits and boundaries give shape to your life. Know these lines, and what is within them will grow in power and meaning.


The changing lines between hexagram 60 and hexagram 20

Changing line #1

"Staying Indoors"- This is not a time to over-stretch and challenge yourself. Gather your energy and act with discretion.

Changing line #2

"Staying Inside the Gate"- To go out the door and then stop before going beyond the gate means to take action at precisely the right time and in the right measure. Wait until you see the golden opportunity, act at once, and then stop without going too far.

Changing line #6

"Avoiding Excessive Limitations"- Being frugal is wise, but don't sacrifice generosity. The wise person knows when to make limits and when to break limits.


The future hexagram #20:
"Meditation"

The meaning of hexagram #20

The meaning of this hexagram is meditation and contemplation, but the visual significance is that of a tower with a broad view which enables one to meditate on the wider landscape rather than immediate events. An additional meaning of this tower is that the tower itself can be seen for many miles, suggesting "an example" being set for others. This is a time to reflect carefully on what has gone before, and what is happening now in a broader sense. Decisions made at this time will be witnessed by many.
