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 51

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 #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 #51:
"A Powerful Jolt"

The meaning of hexagram #51

Just as a clap of thunder brings a jolt to the sky, this hexagram signifies the imminence of a powerful jolt to one's life. Expect a new event, person or idea to shake up your world. This could prove to be a wonderful wake-up call. Although a layer of fear may arise at the onset of the jolt, overall this is a time when fear will transform into excitement. You will laugh amidst the chaos. Eyes once closed will now see. Shock brings a return of energy and power. Outer circumstances will be seen in a new light. New answers and new solutions will appear before you. Or perhaps they were there all along?
