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 6

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 #5

"Clouds But No Rain"- The situations you are facing are not nearly as difficult as you have assumed. They are like ominous-looking clouds that threaten rain, but never pelt you with it. Take one step at a time and a good outcome is assured

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 #6:
"Conflict"

The meaning of hexagram #6

The message of this hexagram is that even those who go through life with good-will and the best intentions will at times meet with hostility and powerful opposition. At this time it is advised that conflict be avoided, for conflict at this time (even if justified) will lead to more serious setbacks. There are times when a "cautious halt" can be far more powerful than the most aggressive response.
