"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 6

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 #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 #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 #6:
"Conflict"

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.
