Dissolution of the Problem / Release / Liberation

Your fortune is changing for the better.

After obstruction comes resolution. The guidance of the previous hexagram, Obstruction (39), was to keep still and gather energy. Here the obstructive force has started to decrease and a new cycle is set forth. This is thus the time to positively solve all problems. JIE also means to ‘untie,’ which implies untangling the psychological knots of one’s life. Forgiveness helps very much to get there for in as much you are tolerant and forgiving toward others, in as much you are toward yourself; hence you get over past mistakes. Doing so, you can resolve both inward and outward entanglement.

1. It is time for the preparation of a new project. Difficulties are behind you. But do not rush, rather do one step at a time. Success is indicated!

2. Be direct and do not hesitate to tackle difficulties on your way to accomplishment of your project or mission. To be straightforward now brings you good luck. Honesty and care in all dealings with others brings you advancement.

3. Beware of greed, arrogance and conceit! Such an attitude may get you into a negative karmic cycle. Hold your vision, use fair play, then nothing can defeat you.

4. The more your personality matures, the more you free yourself of unworthy relationships, the more you gain the trust of good people who will then put their faith in you, and trust you.

5. Free yourself from false friends and people who flatter you because they expect an advantage through the relationship with you. Now it’s time to set yourself free. Once you are liberated of these attachments, you will attract good helpers and collaborators. Success is indicated.

6. You may have to overcome an enemy, a person who tries to mess up your plans. You may need all your strength and smart to get this done, but the rewards will be great. Aim high and you will make it!
