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 52

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 #52:
"Staying Still"

The meaning of hexagram #52

This hexagram suggests finding stillness and peace amidst chaos and motion. The world is constantly in flux. But this hexagram is asking you to call into question the notion that there needs to be movement at all. Staying still in one's heart can be the ultimate destination. The wise person, who has found stillness of mind and heart, will experience no opposition at this time. This is an opportunity to meditate and gain new awareness. You will soon find that you are able to take a breather from the noise of your mind and your life. Out of deep inner stillness comes powerful action.
