Interpreting The I Ching - Hexagram 49 Ko

I Ching Hexagram 49 - Ko
I Ching Hexagram: 49

Name: Ko.

Keyphrase: Revolution.

General: Only when justified by necessity and clear intent should radical change be undertaken.

Love: Your relationship may be in need of a radical change, but first you should plan for all eventualities.

Business: The timing for radical change should be chosen wisely to maximize results.

Personal: Meditation is the key to taking advantage of the opportunity for radical self-transformation.


Overview: Ko appears at a time of potential radical transformation. Although fast, decisive, action is often the best way this is not necessarily so when Ko appears. Timing is crucial. Any action needs to be thoroughly thought out and based on very solid foundations. Action should only be taken if absolutely necessary. Resist the temptation to act impetuously as that will undermine your efforts and quite possibly have a negative affect.
