Thunder Mountain

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 21

Changing line #1

"Staying in the Nest"- This line is a reminder not to set out until you have tied up loose ends and are fully fledged. This is a good time to clear clutter or take care of little things you have been avoiding.

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 #6

"Avoid Flying too High"- Do not over estimate your abilities or boundaries. Stay close to home. Trust your feelings. Stay with what feels familiar and right


The future hexagram #21:
"Jaws"

The meaning of hexagram #21

This hexagram which is formed of the two powerful trigrams "Fire" and "Thunder" suggests something that is caught between two powerful forces. When that thing which is caught between the two forces is "chewed up", a positive union of two powerful forces will occur. There may be something that stands between you and your goal. It will not vanish by itself -- instead it will take constant and repeated pressure to remove this obstacle. This hexagram may also symbolize a lawsuit, legal action or legal penalties.
