Hexagram Twenty-Two/22Name: Pi. Keyphrase: Grace. Formed By The Trigrams: Mountain over Fire. General: Valuing beauty will enable you to cultivate your taste for harmony in all aspects of your life. Love: Beauty is only skin deep – do not be taken in by superficial appearances. Look beneath the surface to see a person’s true character. Business: If a business proposition looks too good to be true then it probably is. Make sure it’s exactly what it appears to be. Personal: Enhance your inner beauty. Overview: Pi is about observing natural grace and allowing that observation to inspire you to emulate it in life. Pi also is a warning not to be taken in by superficial beauty or appearance. Instead, make sure that what lies underneath the surface is more enduring. To neglect to do so may well lead to errors of judgment. Remember, the more enduring beauty is seen with the heart. Not with the eye.

“You’re a lot tougher than you think you are”
You have what it takes to deal with this turmoil, onw where events have taken a different turn from what you expect. Recall those times when you’ve faced adversity, when you had to dig deep inside yourself to discover the internal resources and the will to continue onward. As you recall those memories, beware of how the feel in your body. Anchor those feelings by calling on to them to shore your courage and help you maintain your dignity. By dealing with this situation head-on and paying attention to the nuances of the shifting energies, your inner wisdom will dictate when to move ahead and when to retreat, helping you sustain your power throughout.
By maintaining this stance, you’re not only protecting yourself physically and emotionally, but also spiritually. Call upon the Warrior inside, the archetypal aspect of yourself that’s charged with defending the inner kingdom and the archetypal King or Queen. This is one of those times when you definitely need to be assertive with others, saying no when necessary, asking for what you want, and sustaining your physical and emotional boundaries. Pull your shoulders back, lift your head up, look straight ahead, and keep a relaxed vigilance. Do your best not to complain and be a martyr about what you’re involved in presently, for it will only drag you down.
