"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 9

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 #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 #9:
"Wind and Clouds"

The meaning of hexagram #9

This hexagram indicates dark clouds on the horizon. There is still no rain, and the clouds do not appear to be moving closer because the wind keeps them at bay. The underlying meaning here is that a weak force is capable of restraining a stronger force. Subtlety is called for here. Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.
