Hexagram 56 in trigrams

Hexagram 56 in trigrams
This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Hexagram 56, Travelling

Fire on the mountain The trigrams of Hexagram 56 show inner mountain and outer fire. The picture, for me, suggests the nomads’ campfire. It has limited fuel and a limited duration, and the travellers will need to resolve any disputes before the ashes are cool, so they can move on unencumbered in the morning. A… Continue Reading

Hexagram 56, Travelling
This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Hexagram 56, Travelling

Following your flag The name of Hexagram 56 is lu 旅, Travelling. The Chinese character (which also means a division of troops) originally shows people around the flag, and was normally written simply with two people under the flag, almost as if sheltering under a roof: An ancient Chinese settlement would be built around its banner,… Continue Reading

Who is the ‘superior man’?

Who is the ‘superior man’?

The person who emailed me this question found the expression ‘superior man’ quite off-putting. I can see why: arranging half of humanity into superiors and inferiors, inviting the reader to identify not just as a good person but as someone better than the rest… none of this feels sympathetic to me, either.

An oracle for all kinds of mind

An oracle for all kinds of mind

All kinds of mind, all kinds of entrance The Yijing can speak to all kinds of people – I think this may be one way in which it’s unique. Tarot, for instance, is undoubtedly a multi-faceted system, but to use it fluently you’d better be moved by its images and able to imagine yourself inside… Continue Reading

The joy of ROQs and making sense

The joy of ROQs and making sense

ROQs, as you may know if you came to June’s ‘Connecting with Imagery’ workshop, are Really Obvious Questions. They’re the simplest, most child-like questions you can think of: what’s this? what do you do with one? what’s it like? These are the key to getting unstuck at pretty much any stage of a reading. Making sense… Continue Reading
