Wind Heaven
Wind Lake

The starting hexagram #9 deconstructs into the upper trigram of Wind above the lower trigram of Heaven.

The secondary completed hexagram, #61, can be broken down into a preserved, unchanged upper trigram of Wind above a transitioned lower trigram of Lake.


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 #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.


The future hexagram #61:
"Inner Truth"

The meaning of hexagram #61

This hexagram signifies a deep bond or feeling of kinship. This is a time when it will be easy to cultivate mutual trust in relationships and partnerships. Let go of any remnants of prejudice you may carry, and seek the beauty and fullness that can be found in all people and things. Realize all life is interconnected. Everyone is one. This is the inner truth you have been seeking, but have never lost. Also indicated here are the differences between what is outside and what is inside yourself. What truly matters to you?
