Is there a term for or special signifigance when the 2nd and 5th line both change? (When they are the only changing lines)

Some of these have been coming up for me lately.

1~30, 2~29, 3~19, 4~20, 5~36, 6~35, 7~8,
9~22, 10~21, 11~63, 12~64, 13~14,
15~48, 16~47, 17~54, 18~53

23~59, 24~60, 25~38, 26~37, 27~61, 28~62

31~32, 33~50, 34~49

39~46, 40~45, 41~42, 43~55, 44~56

51~58, 52~57

Long live the squiggle.

Remarkable observation Moss Elk. I wonder if those sequences counts for the rest of the hexagrammes as well....

When the 2nd and 5th line change you have 29 as the yang change pattern and 30 as the yin pattern.

Hence in any question where lines 2 and 5 change you have a 29/30 'doorway' to the reading. There would be a theme of going from dark chasms to clarity.

yang pattern=what hexagram would be if all change lines were yang
ying pattern =what hexagram would be if all change lines were yin

These are an important aspect to look at in a reading IMO, they show the theme that brings you to the reading. So for example if someone often has lines 1 and 2 changing in their readings the change patterns are 19 and 33.

Here is a link to the wiki article by Hilary on them http://www.onlineclarity.co.uk/friends/showwiki.php?title=Patterns-of-Change

Long live the squiggle.

A couple or so years ago I was writing on exploring divination about how to interpret second and fifth line changing in relationships, but then I quit before I got too far. It may still be out there somewhere.

As a general rule, the second and fifth lines are rulers of their respective trigrams and therefore are more closely related to the meaning of the hexagram overall. The second and fifth line often correspond with each other. Especially if one is yin and the other yang. If both are yin or both yang then they correspond in a different way as they are of "like kind." (See hexagram 61) Generally it is best if the second line is yin and the fifth yang, but not always. It depends on the nature of the hexagram.
