Equilibrium is the great foundation of life, and harmony its universal path. Voyager, there are no bridges; one builds them as one walks. Perhaps the hexagrams were arranged in this way to remind us that nothing ever comes to an end. The message of Chi Chi is that while the situation appears to be stable and in order, you need to plan for inevitable changes that will continue to occur.

Hexagrams 63 and 64, of course, stand at the very end of the Yijing, and they deal with themes of completion and arrival — or not. The name of the hexagram is ji ji , already across. The Zhou people had a great river to cross to enter the territory of the Shang regime they were called to overthrow.
In readings, it points to something already decided or already present. Constancy bears fruit. Beginnings, good fortune. Endings, chaos. Heaven gives birth to the multitudes of the people, But its charge cannot be counted upon. To begin well is common, To end well is rare indeed. After this thundering exposition, the remaining verses of the song recount the warnings of King Wen of the Zhou to the corrupt Shang, telling them to mend their ways.
Now the Shang had gone the same way and would suffer the same fate at the hands of the Zhou. So the Shang found their mirror in the Xia. Now in Hexagram 63, the Zhou have crossed their river and begun well… could they too have a mirror?
A hint might be found in the paired lines Three years go round, and he overcomes it. The Thunderer uses this to attack the Demon Country.
Three years go round, and there are rewards in the great city. The Zhou have fought bravely, crossed the river, assumed the Mandate of Heaven… now what? Stopping at the end means confusion; this dao is exhausted. And conversely, there is a sense that moving forward is what creates the path, so that as soon as you stop moving, the path runs out.
However, it can also say — expect mess, because only beginnings can be tidy. I achieve inbox zero, I work efficiently, I have beautiful insights. Looking through my journal, I do mostly get 63 as primary hexagram about work. Good work! Thank you! I would like to add an interesting twist on this hexagram that I recently experienced, after the last post above. I discovered something bad at the beginning before proceeding further with something I was considering.
This enabled me to avoid calamity by choosing not to proceed with what I now realize would have ended very badly without any possibility of a good outcome. And that was under the auspices of 63? So I dare say it varies…. Hexagram 63 was the second hexagram. The changing lines seemed to symbolize what I came to discover, and 63 seemed to be putting it in some temporal context, maybe? What happened in my recent situation involved attaining an awareness about a situation.
Very helpful commentary. Did a part of it get cut off? I asked about an old boyfriend, my first love from 23 years ago that I just reconnected with and I got 63 unchanging. I would go quite simply with what it says — that beginnings go well, and endings fall apart. I really love your interpretation. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

63 Already Crossing JI JI
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Hexagram 63, Already Across (a beginning)
A clean slate and emotional stability are referenced by this hexagram. You are getting the chance to start over with someone. Old viewpoints and past incidents no longer have any bearing at this point. You have come a long way and a new romantic journey is indicated. Like a traveler who has traversed a difficult and wide river, you have reached solid ground on the other side. Heartache and old wounds have healed well.
