The hexagram describes a time when differences
are accentuated and things tend to separate out. It also relates to
that which is unfamiliar and the experience of diversity.
This is not an easy time. It is more difficult to
relate to those who
are different from ourselves than to those who are like us and
adjusting to the unfamiliar can be uncomfortable. The situation can be
made even more challenging when those we are encountering are
emphasising their differences, even amongst themselves.
The hexagram means separation and loneliness.
It is necessary to remember that we all share
a spiritual connection
so there is a possibility of harmony between us.
The most indirect of connections can be built on to negotiate
cooperation using tact and compromise.
There is also a wealth to be found in diversity.
horizons to accept those who are different from ourselves we reap the
reward of a wider experience.
Rejecting difference leads to isolation.
Contrasts stand out more than
similarities and can easily be exaggerated into xenophobia.
