Hexagram 13: Fellowship with Men

Question: How am I to deal with ennui and despair?

The answer: Hexagram 13, Fellowship, changing to Hexagram 14, Great Possession.

I was going through a very bleak period. Everything seemed dead to me. After I threw the coins, and received the "Fellowship" hexagram, my attitude changed, and I began to see that within the realm of family, friends, and fellow artists, I was surrounded by loving energy. The hexagram helped me to appreciate the love I had taken for granted or disregarded, and the second hexagram (14) further enhanced my ability to appreciate what good fortune I've had. The overall lesson for me is to be alive and aware when and how you are loved.
