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.

The changing lines between hexagram 60 and hexagram 28

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 #3

"Restraint Brings Joy"- When someone has no self-restraint, they can easily lose themselves in trivial affairs. Current problems can be reduced by taking care to not lose yourself in over-indulgence or extravagance

Changing line #4

"Embracing Natural Limits"- This line is a reminder to not place unnecessary limits on yourself or others. Stay with what feels right and natural.


The future hexagram #28:
"Test of Faith"

The meaning of hexagram #28

When walking across a thin and bending beam, one must take heart and have faith that it will hold. This hexagram is a reminder to not bend under the weight of burdens. It is also about a great inner test. You may be in some danger for a short time. Only through letting go of the old and embracing the new can success be attained. A gentle strength is required here.
