The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "Treading (Conduct)" transforming into "Limitation".

In front of you lies "Heaven" which transforms into "Water". That means that strength and creativity are being transformed into danger and the unknown.
Behind you lies "Lake", representing joy, pleasure, and attraction.


The Situation

10. Lu - Treading (Conduct)
Above (in front): Ch'ien - The Creative (Heaven)
Below (behind): Tui - The Joyous (Lake)




The Judgement for the Current Situation

Treading. Treading upon the tail of the tiger.
It does not bite the man. Success.


The Image for the Current Situation

Heaven above, the lake below:
The image of Treading.
Thus the superior man discriminates between high and low,
And thereby fortifies the thinking of the people.

Above (in front): K'an - The Abysmal (Water)
Below (behind): Tui - The Joyous (Lake)


The Judgement for the Future

Limitation. Success.
Galling limitation must not be persevered in.


The Image for the Future

Water over Lake: the image of Limitation.
Thus the superior man
Creates numbers and measure,
And examines the nature of virtue and correct conduct.
