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 60

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 #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


The future hexagram #60:
"Limitation"

The meaning of hexagram #60

This hexagram is a reminder of boundaries and edges. It implies containment and conservation of funds and energies. Financially, this is a time to tighten your belt. Health wise, this is a time to respect the limits of health and safety. Romance wise, this is a time to recognize the boundaries and limits that others set. Discover your line in the sand. Be conservative in your affairs and the doors to success will stay open. Just as the shore gives shape to a lake, so also do limits and boundaries give shape to your life. Know these lines, and what is within them will grow in power and meaning.
