Wind Heaven
Thunder Heaven

The first hexagram #9 breaks down into the upper trigram of Wind over the lower trigram of Heaven.

The successive changed hexagram, #34, deconstructs into a transformed upper trigram of Thunder over an unchanged 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 34

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.

Changing line #6

"The Rainfall Brings a Time of Rest"- This changing line at the top of the hexagram symbolizes a cloudburst and a release of tensions. Success has come at last, but with it come new dangers. Be comfortable with modest gains but do not overextend yourself for more. There is danger in greed and persistance. This changing line also indicates a female victory.


The future hexagram #34:
"Great Power"

The meaning of hexagram #34

As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
