"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 32

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.

Changing line #5

"Incurring Equal Limitations"- The wise person will only place limits on others that they themselves can uphold. To level the playing field at this time will bring great success.


The future hexagram #32:
"Permanence"

The meaning of hexagram #32

This hexagram points to the importance of stability and constancy. In the same way that thunder and lightning have always been together, the wise person seeks unions that are forever. Keep an optimistic outlook and your friendships/partnerships will endure and succeed. Simultaneously, you must access a sense of stability inside yourself. Like the constellations in the sky, everything in life moves as an integrated whole. Discovering this integration - by which everyone and everything in the Universe are connected -will put you in touch with stability and the power of permanence.
