Hi Everyone.

So I have some major life decisions to make fairly quickly. :eek:
I decided to try and narrow it down to 3 possible paths.
So I asked the oracle 3 questions.
For each path I asked "Please tell me about this opportunity..."

The results were:
52.2.6 > 36
45.4.5 > 2
42

I just need some help understanding which of the 3 paths is the most advantageous to follow based on the castings...
and which path is the least advantageous... :confused:

Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

Thank You
:bows:

Please tell me about this opportunity.
52.2.6 > 36
45.4.5 > 2
42

42 Increase is generally held to be auspicious and 36 inauspicious, and 2 is auspicious or inauspicious according to your goals, but I don't appraise hexagrams that way. Auspiciousness depends on according with the character of the times and depends on your situation. 36 is auspicious if you are in an exposed position and want more security. It is also auspicious if you have talent but withhold it to give others an opportunity.

36 may also imply a supportive role rather than in the spotlight. 52.2,6-36 looks to me like the way of the hermit rather than the way of worldly recognition.

But it does seem rather obvious that 42 offers the biggest opportunity to advance, not only yourself but others - "To rule is to serve" Wilhelm 42.

45.4,5-2 Looks to me like a gatherer's life, taking what comes your way, including possible eventual leadership. But here too may include the idea of service to others.

They all require work, so it's a matter of being true to yourself and the kind of work you do best and most naturally. There's also the possibility that Yi suggests a balance of all three.

It would be necessary to know what the paths actually are as they will have a bearing upon the answer received.

For option 1, 52 > 36 great for becoming a devote monk.

Hex 42 perhaps thinking of becoming a money lender, a banker etc?

Thanks Everyone!!

So 52.2.6>36 Was an offer made to me by some friends (a couple) to be hired as a production manager for their clothing line.
It would allow me to make the most money I've ever made, but it would also be a fulltime-fulltime job!

45.4.5>2 Is an opportunity to be a part of starting an organic farm that is about to be started by a couple I know. A possible opportunity to live on the land as well is inherent.

42 Is the option of going back to school. I specifically asked "Oracle please tell me about this opportunity to go back to school and get a degree and become a scholar."


Anyway I've decided to go back to school. Signed up for 18 units. Going to get my B.S. in Plant Sciences.
School starts in 3 weeks.
I'm going to try to stay involved in the farm as much as time permits.
And in the meantime I'm making some money before school starts by helping with the clothing line for only the next 3 weeks.

I'm using a Karcher interpreted IChing.
I'm new to the IChing, but the more I kept thinking about the first 2 readings the more I realized they were spot on accurate!
As much as I wanted to logically contest the answer, I simply couldn't deny the power of what 42 was telling me about school.
"Increase, advance, add to, benefit, strengthen, support, pour in more, superabundant, overflowing, restorative, fertile, profitable, advantageous. The ideogram portrays a vessel overflowing with material and spiritual benefits."

Getting second opinions was part of my avoidance of accepting what it was clearly telling me.
But now I'm a believer.

Lovin the IChing!

I can see how 45.4 and 5 > 2 looks good for the farming life, little pay, but plenty to eat while working your ass off all day in all kinds of weather.

As for the clothes line, I was just thinking if they will go out of business.

Hex 42 Great for further accumulation of knowledge, you have to do it while you can.
