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 41

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 #2

"Seeking Guidance"- The wise person seeks counsel from an elder or more knowledgeable person. Asking for assistance is the first step toward gaining clarity. The rest will emerge.

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

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 #41:
"Decrease"

The meaning of hexagram #41

Like a wooden foundation that has become weak and flimsy, this hexagram signifies a time of instability. Be careful, this could be a time of decreased prosperity. If handled wisely however, the future may hold a simple redistribution of funds. Simplicity and integrity are the keys here. If you reduce your goals, others will support your efforts. Reducing your immediate expectations may be a necessary step toward your greater dreams and aspirations. This is not a time to panic. It is a time to value simplicity and enjoy the natural world.
