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 63

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 #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 #63:
"Completion"

The meaning of hexagram #63

A transition from chaos to order is referenced by this hexagram. You have come a long way but the journey is not over. Like a traveler who has traversed a difficult and wide river, you appear to approach your destination. But the river bank is not the final stopping place. The most difficult work is over, but the wise person never stops moving onward in incremental steps. You are entering new territory and it will be smooth going at first. A new relationship or project will get off to the perfect beginning. But stay balanced internally and externally, or else the road ahead could become bumpy. Completion and beginning are deeply connected. Only one part of your journey is ending.
