The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "The Receptive" transforming into "The Abysmal (Water)".

In front of you lies "Earth" which transforms into "Water". That means that docility and receptivity are being transformed into danger and the unknown.
Behind you lies "Earth" which transforms into "Water". That means that docility and receptivity are being transformed into danger and the unknown.


The Situation

2. K'un - The Receptive
Above (in front): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)
Below (behind): K'un - The Receptive (Earth)




The Judgement for the Current Situation

The Receptive brings about sublime success,
Furthering through the perseverance of a mare.
If the superior man undertakes something and tries to lead,
He goes astray;
But if he follows, he finds guidance.
It is favorable to find friends in the west and south,
To forego friends in the east and north.
Quiet perseverance brings good fortune.


The Image for the Current Situation

The earth's condition is receptive devotion.
Thus the superior man who has breadth of character
Carries the outer world.


Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 2: Straight, square, great.
Without purpose,
Yet nothing remains unfurthered.

Line 5: A yellow lower garment brings supreme good fortune.


The Future

29. K'an - The Abysmal (Water)
Above (in front): K'an - The Abysmal (Water)
Below (behind): K'an - The Abysmal (Water)


The Judgement for the Future

The Abysmal repeated.
If you are sincere, you have success in your heart,
And whatever you do succeeds.


The Image for the Future

Water flows on uninterruptedly and reaches it goal:
The image of the Abysmal repeated.
Thus the superior man walks in lasting virtue
And carries on the business of teaching.
