Negotiation will beat direct force and charm will prove to be stronger than coercion. There is still time.

Changing line #2

"Join the Return"- An obstacle faced at this time may be avoided by watching the course taken by others. You will not the first to have arrived at this place, nor will you be the last. Observe the paths taken by others and along the way you will see options you had not previously considered. Do not force your way down the current path if it is blocked.

Changing line #4

"If You are Sincere, There is No Blame"- There are times when one must intervene in the actions of a loved one, a good friend or a superior. The changes in this line indicate that even though this intervention may cause strife, in the end there will be no blame if your cause is just.

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 #30:
"Luminosity"

This hexagram is a sign of good things. The path is clear and success is yours. A sense of inner radiance is the source of this good news. From a bright inner nature stem wondrous outer circumstances in your life. The brightness lights up the night sky like a sacred flame. Stay aware of your purpose. You will make great strides toward your goals. Take new actions. Health and prosperity are indicated here.
