The starting hexagram #62:
"Smallness"

The meaning of hexagram #62

This hexagram signifies the power of incremental movements and simplicity. Challenges can be overcome by paying great attention to the tiniest details. Reach for the stars, but don't fly too high all at once. This is a time to contemplate things at a smaller scale. Too often we forget the smaller things -- the compliment, the friendly action -- these are more important than ever at this time. There is also a warning carried in this hexagram: That a small detail may have been overlooked, or that the greater whole may be affected dramatically by something small and ignored.


The changing lines between hexagram 62 and hexagram 2

Changing line #3

"Keeping a Look Out"- Use caution at this time. Don't over step your boundaries. Current problems will be minimized by looking before you leap.

Changing line #4

"Give Thinking Some Rest"- This is a time to let feeling, not thinking, guide your next move. Get quiet and see what your gut tells you is the next small step. Place the intellect aside. Follow your heart and intuition instead


The future hexagram #2:
"The Receptive"

The meaning of hexagram #2

The Receptive is the hexagram denoting "devotion" and the spirit of the Earth. Fertile ground is required for creation. The hexagram of "the receptive" often has a strong female meaning, but can denote a powerful relationship between either a man and a woman, a father and son or between friends. A conscious act of devotion and a willingness to stand by that person, principle or force which sustains us, guides us or fills us with energy.
