The Love Oracle

Your current love situation

Your current situation can be depicted as "The Arousing (Shock, Thunder)" transforming into "The Marrying Maiden".

In front of you lies "Thunder", representing movement, initiative, and action.
Behind you lies "Thunder" which transforms into "Lake". That means that movement, initiative, and action are being transformed into joy, pleasure, and attraction.

The Situation

51. Chên - The Arousing (Shock, Thunder)
Above (in front): Chên - The Arousing (Thunder)
Below (behind): Chên - The Arousing (Thunder)

The Judgement for the Current Situation

Shock brings success.
Shock comes--oh, oh!
Laughing words--ha, ha!
The shock terrifies for a hundred miles,
And he does not let fall the sacrificial spoon and chalice.

The Image for the Current Situation

Thunder repeated: the image of Shock.
Thus in fear and trembling
The superior man sets his life in order
And examines himself.

Interpretation of the Changing Line(s)

Line 2: Shock comes bringing danger.
A hundred thousand times
You lose your treasures
And must climb the Change hills.
Do not go in pursuit of them.
After seven days you will get them back.

The Future

54. Kuei Mei - The Marrying Maiden
Above (in front): Chên - The Arousing (Thunder)
Below (behind): Tui - The Joyous (Lake)

The Judgement for the Future

The Marrying Maiden.
Undertakings bring misfortune.
Nothing that would further.

The Image for the Future

Thunder over the lake:
The image of The Marrying Maiden.
Thus the superior man
Understands the transitory
In the light of the eternity of the end.
