The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "Splitting Apart" transforming into "Decrease".

In front of you lies "Mountain", representing stillness and obstruction.
Behind you lies "Earth" which transforms into "Lake". That means that docility and receptivity are being transformed into joy, pleasure, and attraction.

The Situation

23. Po - Splitting Apart
Above (in front): Kên - Keeping Still (Mountain)
Below (behind): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)

The Judgement for the Current Situation

Splitting Apart. It does not further one
To go anywhere.

The Image for the Current Situation

The mountain rests upon the earth:
The image of Splitting Apart.
Thus those above can insure their position
Only by giving generously to those below.

Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 1: The leg of the bed is split.
Those who persevere are destroyed.

Line 2: The bed is split at the edge.
Those who persevere are destroyed.

The Future

41. Sun - Decrease
Above (in front): Kên - Keeping Still (Mountain)
Below (behind): Tui - The Joyous (Lake)

The Judgement for the Future

Decrease combined with sincerity
Brings about supreme good fortune
Without blame.
One may be persevering in this.
It furthers one to undertake something.
How is this to be carried out?
One may use two small bowls for the sacrifice.

The Image for the Future

At the foot of the mountain, the lake:
The image of Decrease.
Thus the superior man controls his anger
And restrains his instincts.
