The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "Before Completion" transforming into "Approach".

In front of you lies "Fire" which transforms into "Lake". That means that brightness and warmth are being transformed into joy, pleasure, and attraction.
Behind you lies "Water" which transforms into "Earth". That means that danger and the unknown are being transformed into docility and receptivity.


The Situation

64. Wei Chi - Before Completion
Above (in front): Li - The Clinging (Fire)
Below (behind): K'an - The Abysmal (Water)




The Judgement for the Current Situation

Before Completion. Success.
But if the little fox, after nearly completing the crossing,
Gets his tail in the water,
There is nothing that would further.


The Image for the Current Situation

Fire over water:
The image of the condition before transition.
Thus the superior man is careful
In the differentiation of things,
So that each finds its place.


Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 1: He gets his tail in the water.
Humiliating.

Line 4: Perseverance brings good fortune.
Remorse disappears.
Shock, thus to discipline the Devil's Country.
For three years, great realms are awarded.

Line 6: There is drinking of wine
In genuine confidence. No blame.
But if one wets his head,
He loses it, in truth.


The Future

19. Lin - Approach
Above (in front): Tui - The Joyous (Lake)
Below (behind): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)


The Judgement for the Future

Approach has supreme success.
Perseverance furthers.
When the eight month comes,
There will be misfortune.


The Image for the Future

The earth above the lake:
The image of Approach.
Thus the superior man is inexhaustible
In his will to teach,
And without limits
In his tolerance and protection of the people.
