Increase. It furthers one to undertake something. It furthers one to cross the great water.

Wind and thunder: the image of Increase. Thus the superior man: if he sees good, he imitates it; if he has faults, he rids himself of them.


I am a vessel of abundance and growth. Like a tree that extends its branches and leaves, I expand my possibilities and attract positive energy. I welcome the increase of blessings, knowledge, and prosperity into my life. With each step, I am moving toward a brighter future. I am open to the flow of abundance, and I embrace the opportunities that come my way. As I sow the seeds of intention, I reap the harvest of augmentation and success. My potential is limitless, and I am ready to see it grow. I am the master of my destiny, and I choose to increase my joy, my wisdom, and my abundance every day.

Career meaning:

If you're an entrepreneur or a business owner, the hexagram I has a message for you too. This is a time to further your business and reward your staff generously. By investing in your business and your employees, you can create a thriving work environment that benefits everyone involved. When you're generous with your resources and opportunities, you'll find that your business will grow and prosper in ways that you never thought possible.

Personal meaning:

The hexagram I also speaks to the importance of helping others. Take the opportunity to lend a helping hand to those in need, and you will achieve great success in your personal life. Whether it's volunteering your time, donating to charity, or simply being there for a friend in need, your generosity can have a profound impact on the world around you. By giving back to others, you'll find that you'll receive much more in return.

Overall meaning:

Overall, the hexagram I represents a time of opportunity and growth. It tells us that we should take advantage of the opportunities presented to us and be open to new experiences. While Sun related to inequality and the need to redress it, I is the very opposite and relates to the time when the inequalities have been addressed. For the wealthier members of society, this may initially mean a loss, but in the long term, they will reap the benefits of a strengthened community. It is important to act quickly and take advantage of these opportunities, for no situation is permanent. By being generous, open, and willing to take risks, we can live a life of abundance and fulfillment.
