Héng

trigram Thunder
Trigram Wind

Hexagram 32

Héng, Steady the helm of the heart

Gua Poem:
Steadiness, expansion. Without fault. Harvest: determination. Fruitful to proceed probing
.

The great image says: Thunder and wind: Mt. Heng
The noble one stands and does not change his bearings.

Héng: the ideogram and the story. What does it mean for your question?

Top 6: Stimulating steadiness. pitfall.
If your steadiness can change through influences, it is obviously not your own heart which sets the course. Try to find your real inner basis, the real values that inspire you. The things that move your soul and not just your ideas.
(Changes to hex.50)

6 at 5: Steadying one's character, Determination. Mature women auspicious, young men pitfall.
You need the solid base of your feelings to find your road in life. Of course you also need a daring active mind - but not for essentail decisions. For those you have to rely on that inner wisdom, your inner goddess.
(Changes to hex.28)

9 at 4: Fields without wildfowl.
Don’t blame the field. If you catch nothing, you are either hunting at the wrong place or moment, or you did not prepare yourself. Hunting is a question of mind, not of hands. A good hunter does not need to run after the game, he waits at the right spot.
(Changes to hex.46)

9 at 3: No steadiness in one's character. One might present a sheep offering. Determination Distress.
Without consistency in one's character one gets nowhere, even with the best intentions. Not in one's own life and not with others. The result will be a life of regrets, unless one continuously mends all errors and misunderstandings.
(Changes to hex.40)

9 at 2: regrets disappear.
When you tackle things, or even life, step by step, every small step according to who you really are, you inevitably go the way you’re supposed to go, you follow your destination. Setting a goal and striving towards it can be great, but it will not span a life. It will stay limited, a part but not the whole.  
(Changes to hex.62)

Initial 6: Scrutinizing steadiness. Determination pitfall. No ground for harvest.
Following one’s course is not complicated, not something which has to be figured out. It comes natural if one is in tune with oneself and universe. Then one’s boat floats all by itself the right course on the river of one’s life.
(Changes to hex.34)
