Wind Heaven
Mountain Heaven

The initial hexagram #9 breaks down into the upper trigram of Wind above the lower trigram of Heaven.

The secondary transformed hexagram, #26, deconstructs into a transitioned upper trigram of Mountain above a preserved lower trigram of Heaven.


The starting hexagram #9:
"Wind and Clouds"

The meaning of hexagram #9

This hexagram indicates dark clouds on the horizon. There is still no rain, and the clouds do not appear to be moving closer because the wind keeps them at bay. The underlying meaning here is that a weak force is capable of restraining a stronger force. Subtlety is called for here. Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.


The changing lines between hexagram 9 and hexagram 26

Changing line #5

"Sincere Attachment Brings Rewards"- The synergy between two parties or people is greater than the energy of each individual. This changing line, near the top of this hexagram, references the additional power that can be created by a combination of forces. Romance and favorable business partnerships are referenced here.


The future hexagram #26:
"Great Achievements"

The meaning of hexagram #26

This vital hexagram explores the power of holding firm and standing your ground. Don't become distracted by luxury and leisure. Stay the course with courage and inner discipline. This can be a time of great gains and increased well-being, but you must keep your footing despite strong currents tugging at you. Put your ideas/projects into motion. Cross the waters without apprehension. Honor your strengths to achieve great things.
