Interpretation & Meaning of Hexagram 59:
There will come a time when progress comes to a standstill because there is something currently in place that is holding back the pace. Hexagram 59 shows that by removing these barriers, progression is then possible again.
Make sure the methods of communication are correct for the situation; that they are open and clear. The idea is to limit the amount of damage that might be done during this process so be prepared to take on extra work.
A common example of a barrier would be either poor communication or a lack there of. It is important to keep the gates of communication always open and give all members of a team the opportunity to speak.
No one enjoys going through a difficult period, especially one that deals with the slowing of progression. We are always progressing towards something. This progress can be towards a personal goal or a project at work or perhaps the deepening of a relationship.
I Ching Hexagram 59 – Personal Goals:
We could be trying to obtain great success. But in order to do so, a constant flow of progression is needed. There will be obstacles in our way that will keep us from our achievements. Recognizing these errors quickly will allow for progress to begin again.
I Ching Hexagram 59 – Love:
When in a relationship, communication is the only way progression can be made. Make sure to speak often with your partner to learn all you can about their situation. But also be willing to listen to what they have to say.
If you feel like the flame of love is dwindling or there is something missing from the relationship, take the time to discover what the error might be through open communication.
I Ching Hexagram 59 – Career & Business:
When progress has stopped in the work place, perhaps the lack of proper communication is to be blamed for. Making sure every team member has the same information and can operate on the same page will allow for a steady flow of progression.
When a member to the team does not understand what is going on in other departments, then the unit starts to fall apart. Be willing to be a team leader and check in on all the associates.
This way they understand not only what is going on in the work environment, but also you can make sure that they understand their role and responsibilities within the group.

Persistence is the key to any phase in life. Always willing to continue moving forward and accept any change that might be occurring will result in success. Be aware of anything that might be holding you back. It can be as simple as lack of communication when people want to be heard.
Make sure to remain calm when becoming aware of something blocking progression. There is no use becoming upset or anger towards anyone or anything. We are unable to have full control over any situation. But we can be proactive in fixing the problem.
Having an open mind and a clear conscious will aid in overcoming the problem. All phases in life are temporary, and this too shall come to pass.
