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.

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.


The future hexagram #37:
"Family"

The meaning of hexagram #37

This hexagram reminds us that our relationships with family and friends can provide us with insight. We see reflections of ourselves in our relationships with those around us. Family is a microcosm. We must observe the ties we have with our family members and understand our place in the family to gain perspective on ourselves. Who holds authority in your family? Who plays the part of a follower? In which directions does love flow or not flow? Observe all aspects of family life. Valuable nuggets of insight are available now.
