Hexagram Fifty-eight

Your symbol is Hexagram number fifty-eight, the hero, who brings satisfaction and happiness to the family, workplace or society. Accomplishment and integrity add to the hero's reputation.

The first line, yang, shows that one is fortunate to have a peaceful heart. This is auspicious.

The second line, yang, shows that all grief disappears. One who is honest and has pure intentions brings happiness to everyone.

The third line, yin, shows one who feels there must be an atmosphere of harmony, who wishes to enforce harmony, even when it is out of place. This boarders on harmful action.

The fourth line, yang, shows that forced harmony creates uneasiness. One who points this out will is the true hero. When there is a good reason for celebration, good feelings will come naturally.

The fifth line, yang, shows that it is dangerous to trust people who mean harm. Learn to see the truth, rather than deny it.

The sixth line, yin, shows one who always tries to appear happy, even faking happiness. The attempt is not genuine, so it does not get the desired result. It is better to quit denying what is true.

To the reader: Most of the hexagrams have at least one line that predicts bad results, but that does NOT mean you are fated to that result. The hexagrams illustrate different attitudes, so study the actions and reactions to learn the attitudes that will lead to better outcomes.
