The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "Break-through (Resoluteness)" transforming into "Waiting (Nourishment)".

Behind you lies "Heaven", representing strength and creativity.

Below (behind): Ch'ien - The Creative (Heaven)

The Judgement for the Current Situation

Break-through. One must resolutely make the matter known
At the court of the king.
It must be announced truthfully. Danger.
It is necessary to notify one's own city.
It does not further to resort to arms.
It furthers one to undertake something.

The Image for the Current Situation

The lake has risen up to heaven:
The image of Break-through.
Thus the superior man
Dispenses riches downward
And refrains from resting on his virtue.

Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 4: There is no skin on his thighs,
And walking comes hard.
If a man were to let himself be led like a sheep,
Remorse would disappear.
But if these words are heard
They will not be believed.

The Future

Waiting. If you are sincere,
You have light and success.
Perseverance brings good fortune.

The Image for the Future

Clouds rise up to heaven:
The image of Waiting.
Thus the superior man eats and drinks,
Is joyous and of good cheer.
