"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 58
Changing line #3
"The Wheels Come Off the Wagon"- This changing line offers a warning against pushing forward against powerful opposition. A wagon has been pushed to the limits and now it faces destruction as the wheels are torn from the spokes. The result is tension all around: relationships falter and loyalties are tested. The outcome looks unfortunate.
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 #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 #58:
The meaning of hexagram #58
This hexagram suggests fortunate times ahead. Like water smiling up at the Heavens, expect to feel grateful for the joy of life itself. This is a time when you can easily foster the qualities of unwavering friendliness, peace and loyalty. Only through true joy -- the kind that does not depend on outward circumstances -- will you find success. Focus on the overall joy of your journey despite everyday ups and downs. True joy rests on firmness and strength within. It requires a gentleness and faith. Share wisdom and understanding with your friends. Remember that joy isn't something you find. It's something you create.
