The meaning of hexagram #8
This hexagram represents the binding force, or commitments that exist between two people or organizations. Through union we become more powerful and yet we must also remember that to some extent we become less free. Strong commitment and authority is required, but so is a letting go of personal desires for the sake of the greater good. Union is an agreement and a blessing. It is a force for strength, but it must also be nurtured and protected. A union that is not defended will eventually shatter.
The changing lines between hexagram 8 and hexagram 59
Changing line #2
"Perseverance Brings Good Fortune"- Since this changing line is part of the larger hexagram of "Union", it is interpreted as a perseverance in personal relationships. Those who stand by others will succeed. Those who move between friends, lovers and associates as if they are disposable will find ruin among weak friendships and broken partnerships.
Changing line #6
"A Union Without a Head"- This changing line at the top of the hexagram is a warning that relationships and loyalties were entered without prior thoughtfulness. Misfortune awaits. The body has acted without the mind. Fools rush in.
The future hexagram #59:
The meaning of hexagram #59
This powerful hexagram indicates a dispersal of people and ideas. In the same way that wind skims across a watery surface, sending thousands of ripples in its path, this hexagram signifies a time of many small changes. Old partnerships dissolve, friends move or money seems to get away from you for a time. Don't be concerned. The wise person knows that a period of dispersion inevitably gives rise to the return of another cycle of positive growth. This hexagram may also reference friends or family who move away.
