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 7

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 #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 #7:
"The Army"

The meaning of hexagram #7

Even with powerful allies and armies, no success is possible if leadership wavers. Good leadership requires public strength, but more importantly: private discipline. Remember to treat your allies well, and support the greater good. Success at this time will be the result of strong interpersonal ties and dedicated personal discipline. To indulge one's ego or one's own personal ambitions will fail. A unified force will succeed. The importance of clear communication is also referenced here.
