What Is Hexagram 14: “Abundance” ?

Ta Yu is the Chinese name of the I Ching Hexagram 14. With inner and outer trigrams forming fire over heaven, this Hexagram is called ‘abundance’ or alternatively named ‘great possessing’ or ‘possession in great measure’.

Hexagram 14 symbolizes a period of time where the caster will have great abundance without any obstacles currently in place. This abundance can be many things from work success to wealth. No matter what type of great possessions, Hexagram 14 reminds the caster not to be greedy or be complacent in the current phase of life.

Accurate IChing Forecasts



Name:
Question:

The greatest part of this period is that there will be few or no obstacles currently in place to limit progress of success. Although, this can then lead to actions of greed if not careful about the attitudes emanating from a person with great possessions.

Whatever the cause of this great abundance, what a person does with these possessions can cause either an expansion of success or great disaster. There is a great responsibility that comes from having wealth. Maintaining that possession wisely is the key to preserving any form of it.

How one uses that wealth will also plays a factor into a person’s success. A foolish person will spend all that he or she has in a small amount of time on things that have very little meaning.

A greedy person will keep all the wealth to themselves and work hard to continue to gain more, even at the expense of others. The wise person will learn how to save parts of the wealth while using other parts to affect the lives of others.

I Ching Hexagram 14 – Personal Goals:

Most people live their lives without having any sort of wealth or great possessions. Those who do have wealth have the responsibility to helping those who have very little. This goes beyond giving money to the poor, but utilizing your possessions in order to uplift the lives of others.

There are many organizations that work hard to help those who are less fortunate. Donating time and effort when they are in abundance can make a difference in a person’s life, to both the person doing the work and the person receiving the service.

I Ching Hexagram 14 – Love:

Wealth and possessions come in many different types. These words don’t relate to simply wealth and world objects, but having abundance in food or time are things that can the largest difference in a person’s life. These are items that are more readily shared and often taken for granted in relationships with loved ones.

It is hard to realize the importance of time till we have no more left. We don’t need to be rich to feed others and to share what we have with those we love.

I Ching Hexagram 14 – Career & Business:

You will have many opportunities for success in career and business. Don’t allow greed and pride to take over during a time of abundance.

All periods in life are temporary and even great abundance will come to an end. There are ways to preserve this period, but eventually the tables will turn and the caster becomes the less fortunate and those he or she helped are able to succeed.

THE JUDGMENT POEM

POSSESSION IN GREAT MEASURE.
Supreme success.

THE IMAGE POEM

Fire in heaven above:
the image of POSSESSION IN GREAT MEASURE.
Thus the superior man curbs evil and furthers good,
And thereby obeys the benevolent will of heaven.

Conclusion

By being open to sharing personal abundance, it then allows you to be able to receive someone else’s abundance in the future. We can take what we have and use it to prepare for times of hardship. No matter the path taken when in a period of abundance, Hexagram 14 reminds us to be responsible and wise with the possessions we have.
