Understanding Hexagram 19 - Lin (Approach):

The 19th hexagram, Lin, is composed of two trigrams: Earth above and Lake below. This combination signifies a time of growth and progress. It is a period where opportunities are abundant, and advancement is possible.

The Symbolism of Lin:

The image of the Earth above the Lake suggests a time when the earth's nourishing qualities are rising, much like opportunities that come our way. The Lake, serene and calm, signifies acceptance and openness to these opportunities.
