Asking "What is the nature of the attraction between the two us?" I got hex 47 no moving lines.

We've been coming upon each other in various places (of study and of work) and a strong mutual attractionis was felt. However, it wasn't until a couple weeks ago that we finally got a chance to get acquainted. He approached the group in which I was, stood unnecessarily close to me, shook hands and introduced himself to everyone, but barely touched my hand and, without even looking me in the eye, looked the other way. After that, we separated, I was left shocked and perplexed by the behaviour, and spotted him again in the crowd checking me out.

What is going on here?

Thank you in advance. :bows:

I wonder what 47 would be saying.. 47 is about being isolated. I feel like maybe both of you might have felt isolated in the situation. Do you think he had a hard time with the social aspect of the situation? Sometimes people over compensate and reflect a shadow in times of anxiety. It almost seems like he lost focus or was having a moment of 'let me just get through this'. I have been in a situation that, looking back, I know the person was just being socially awkward. They were ignoring me to gain focus on the rest of the situation. They were trying to get a handle on everything else and found comfort in me already. It was as if since I was not the threat, they didn't need to pay attention to me. At the time it was difficult for me because I felt left out. He wouldn't look me in the eye etc. We ended up talking about it very openly and he explained he was nervous and was trying to gain a foothold. He also apologiezed for ignoring me but said even though it was rude on his part, he had not done it on purpose. His fears ran his focus. Do you think this could apply? It is just a thought I had.

47 might also describe you. He left you with a feeling of uncertainty which internally can leave you feeling cutt off. He came up to your group of people, and he was checking you out again from a distance, so he is interested. I would say maybe for your answer to "what is the nature of the attraction", the answer is 'stuck'. There is attraction, but on both sides (for you and him both) the attraction is stuck in a place and you are not sure if you should put stock in it. 47 also is about not trusting words. This doesn't infact point to someone who is being untruthful, but instead talking about someone who inside does not trust. It could be referring to him not trusting himself. Or you not trusting him etc. The stuck part could be from both the Unchanging aspect of the answer, and the hexagram itself.

Advice of 47 comes from not being able to communicate properly at the time. Because you are in this stuck situation. The advice is to create inner momentum and if talking to this guy is something that your life path has in store, it will happen in time.

He could have, but he chose the moment himself. He approached the group that he really didn't have to come to. It's not like he had know someone and thought "s**t, now I have to go up to them and say 'hello' and it's really awkward". Maybe he wanted to, but then got cold feet once he did... yes, it is possible. I was nervous as well.

'Stuck' applies, obviously, yes, but I am not sure what to make of the lack of trust you've mentioned....

Well, yes, I've had this 'if its' meant to be, it'll be in it's own due time' feeling all along. It's just that... now that the moment was finally created, I was completely lost that it was so irreversibly lost... :(


Thank you for your reply. :bows:

The oracle says on 47:
'Confined, creating success.
Constancy of a great person, good fortune.
Not a mistake.
There are words, not trusted.

The original oracle bone inscription is a picture of a tree with 4 walls around it. If I put myself personally into this equation, being the tree that is enclosed, it feels like being in prison. When I feel trapped like this, it naturally gives rise to worry and anxiety. I think, what is outside the walls? Noone is helping me from the outside? or they cannot reach me? I am in here all alone with no feedback from the outside world. -There is a lack of connection from outside of the walls and this gives reason for doubt, insecurity and mistrust.

All of this mistrust comes from within the person within the walls of confinement. But the way to overcome this is from consistancy within the walls and within the self. The tree is slowly growing and gaining momentum and the walls will not always be there.

The Image of 47(Karcher):
'The mists without the stream. Confining.
The realizing person involves fate to release [her] purpose.

Her purpose, if in alignment with heaven, will be fulfilled. So, do not worry. And let your anxieties and nervousness regarding the situation go, find inner strength and the walls will naturally go away. :hug: Oh, and it was just ONE moment out of your entire life that was created. There are cycles and ups and downs. Maybe that wasn't the best one, but don't concern yourself with that, unstick yourself and create new awesome moments!

Yes, the whole situation really does make me feel this one and, come to think of it, I can easily imagine him having the same sentiment.
Let's hope that the tree is growing and that the walls will fall... But, as for that moment and what you say here:

Which means that this moment was not "in aligment with heaven"?
But, what was the purpose of this moment?

As for you saying: "Oh, and it was just ONE moment out of your entire life that was created." it's not I CHING speaking, it's just you being a nice person. :hug:

If I asked IC what the purpose of the moment was, I might get 23, for all I know. :(

Somehow, this quote: "Every moment comes to you pregnant with purpose ... Once it leaves your hands and your power to do with it as you please, it plunges into eternity, to remain forever what you made of it." always makes me feel that the moment is gone, and this time it makes me wonder if I could have done anything to make more of it.

That is why 47 confuses me.

Thank you so much for your replies. :bows:

Here, I did ask about the purpose of the moment and got hex 40.6 to 64

As far as I understand, it speaks of aiming at the target, but also about only one arrow and only one chance.

Which means that my pessimism was appropriate, I guess... :(
