Follow up on reflection of my love life: 51.1>16

Q: What kind of 51.1 will happen during my love life this year?
A: 53.1.6>63

Starts at 53.1 and ends at 53.6. The beginning and end of gradual development.

Shot in the dark: I'll meet the person I'm going to marry?

Messed up the title! Dammit!

Or maybe it means, one relationship meets a welcomed end (53.6) and another begins (53.1)?

Well, in case I am understanding it right, first cast was 51.1>16 on REFLECTION which is concerning something that has already happened?
In that case, I see it as an event that shook you and made a huge impact, sort of a storm in a cup, overreaction that will subside.
53.1,6 does not bode that well to me, certainly something memorable but not more than that.
Speaking from my experience with 53.6, of course.

The question was to give me a reflection of my love life in the next year. 51.1>16

I've had positive experiences with this line. I asked what was the 51.1 experience or reflection? 53.1.6.

I don't think it's negative. It's the beginning and end of some development. I guess time will tell.

it does not have to be negative, just how one perceive things...i remember asking about similar theme and that line ended up as lingering memory for me. All the best, let us know.

Ah, my reading was similar, and there was a discussion about meaning of the 6th line...whether those feathers represent memories or tokens, geese leaving, suggesting moving out of the situation or maybe future together...something like that...turned out it was not promising bonding.

I actually agree. I think it has already happened. A relationship ending. But I get a positive feel from it, as if there's something really good about this ending. I'm almost sure I know it's about the last relationship I left. At the very beginning of the new year, I decided it was time to end things. It took almost 2 months to really start the process of actually moving on. I've done some spiritual work and rituals surrounding this relationship and person. All positive. So, maybe my love life this year revolves around that ending and what it means for my life over the next several months. Even the 51.1 makes sense to me. I got this reading last summer when I found out my ex (after first time we broke) was dating the person who was coming around as a "friend" towards the end of things. It was definitely a shock. But, I think the laughing part is still to come. I think all of this will play out over the next several months. The relationship that was created needed to end. But it was for a spiritual purpose that I experienced it.

I've asked over months, what was the purpose of that? First reading: 63.1.2>48. Second recent reading: 49.1.2.4>48.

63 makes sense to me as my decision to cross the river. I knew it was best. The 48 leads me to believe part of the purpose has to do with where I put my well and what source I tap, in myself and in others. Lots of radical change in readings lately.

Anyway, thanks for the response.

the problem with the whole 53 hex experience is that it takes for months, so best to turn to your own Well for strength...:blush:

Thanks, dragona. But I feel pretty peaceful. My life is good. I'm happy actually. Strange. Oh well if my love life this year will be characterized by an end. Been there and done that. It'll give me time to clean house. Maybe I will stay single for the rest of my life. For the first time, I'm not looking for my soul mate. Doubly strange. I think she may be on the other side already. Dang, that means I have to spend all my time and money on myself. No!!!! :rofl::duh::blush:

Hi, 51.1 : 51.1 to 16 seems clear: awestruck, joyful, trepidation over a new relationship enthusiasm. Keep your eye on the sacrificial ladle, rather than getting too involved in romantic entanglement. Center in the Source of all Love.
53. 1. 6 - this hexagram has to do with marriage. The first and last line together in a hexagram could indicate that you will move through all the stages of the hexagram.
You may move quickly from the courting stage (line 1) through the stages of relationship to line 6 -- (which perhaps indicates a very intense spiritual bond, whether or not it's also sexual).
Maybe you will fall in love and your relationship will start out with gossip (because it's an unlikely match.. or whatever), but the bond will be so strong and spiritual (line 6) that you will continue in the relationship.
I do not know what to make of hex 63 except that it may be the context of your question: you are almost there, mature enough to make a marriage and good relationship.

Hey
53.6 is the old dance is over and a new one can begin, there is finality in the line but its not like 23 or harsh its kind of dreamy , i have had it numerous times like dragona was saying its not the best for relationships, i have had it at the end of a relationship but as you said this not about a specific relationship, it was more of whats in store for me, I had the line just before i moved overseas, so that life was over and I am now living my new life.

I actually have had this reading -- 53.6 and ( I believe) combined with 53.1 for a soul mate relationship, in asking about its prospects. It was a passionate, and deep connection, though not always easy. So I don't see it necessarily as about finality, though it can be that. My perspective...

Thats true, it wasnt 53.6 by itself there was a combination so that could influence the reading as a whole.
53.1 does have an influence so together the answer could be as you say. I havent had the exact same reading as well, I guess i am basing it on my experience with 53.6 more.

I've had line 1 and line 6 together for a while. Recently, as in the last day or so, it was 23.1.6. I agree with the return nature... beginning and end...

Oh, I meant to add...

I agree with the return nature... beginning and end... I agree that 53 is a very spiritual hex. 53.6 is especially spiritual. We'll see how this plays out. I've also had 36.1.6 and again 36.6 in relation to this reading. Gossip also in the 36.1. I gather from all the readings that there is the same underlying spiritual principle. There has been a time of darkness for me that will end. I can see the beginnings of it now. I can see that 23.6 fruit will be planted into a new field of possibilities. 36.6 will herald a new time. According to Yi, I'll meet a woman I hold a particular spiritual bond with at 36.6. I take that to be when the darkness has lifted. When 23.1.6 actually turns to 24.

Something to be hopeful about!

Thank all of you for your insights! Thank you, loverofknowledge! I especially like this. I was a little "under the influence" the other night and thought I finished my response to this thread. I did not.

I'm still taking it all in. Change is afoot.

Hi, I see the hexagram 63 as a caution to be practical. There is fire (passion) underneath water (a stream to cross). Be practical so that you get across and keep your boat intact. Temper your romanticism. Go out and meet some people across the stream. Do you live near water?
53.1.6 : this can mean different things to different people in different circumstances.
It is clear to me that line 6 is auspicious. The geese have made it up the mountain and their feathers can be used in ceremony. I think you can use the feathers of geese without hurting the geese, is it so?
They approached the stream (line 1): that means, go out and approach the stream of new romantic possibilities. No gain without approach.
Inwardly, make yourself like the geese who attain the ultimate spiritual blessing: their feathers used for ceremony.
your life is a sacred journey, learn from it, make yourself worthy, be worthy, know and celebrate your beauty, in order to attract the right partner. Also, take steps to meet this person.
Hexagram 53 speaks to your desire for love and marriage and gives you guidance on both the inner and outer planes, spiritual and mundane.

Beautifully worded. I do live near water. Quite a bit of it. And work at a plant that's on water. In fact, there's water everywhere around me! I love the idea of approaching my desire for love and marriage in a spiritually minded way, without romanticism. The spiritual includes the nitty gritty details of relating. I don't have to be in relationship with another romantically, but I'm open to the work of loving and meeting in the middle.

On second thought, plucking feathers from geese does hurt them though they are not always killed during the process. So:
metaphorically: it's a relationship that serves spiritual ends
OR
it could be a self-sacrifice for spiritual purposes

Like! But also, and more likely, they fell out naturally from the hills and valleys of their journey up to greater heights. It seems like a natural sacrifice that's part of the sacred journey. Shoes get worn and soft. Faces wear time...

I'm thinking reaching here is the spiritual summit, the precipice of growth, the moment before death or enlightenment, the finale of a journey lived for something greater. Or maybe it is death. It is the moment of liberation. The earthly feathers fall off and are used as a sacrifice to the spiritual, the beyond. The Holy Spirit lives on that mountain. You know, I'd say this could be, for someone, the moment of individuation or the hieros gamos, the sacred marriage. Maybe the feathers are used at the ceremony because it's a holy wedding?

Yes, holy wedding.
I personally don't see death as much because
I see 53 as about love and marriage, -- geese are its symbols. So, you reach the summit, and your feathers fall off, to be used in ceremony, a ceremony that honors the love of marriage, though the marriage is not just about the pair but a service to a bigger cause.
As I see it.
It sounds like it would be just your kind of romance, -- spiritual, uplifting, a grand moment, a significant theme. Can't wait to hear about the real life correlate!

The feathers I feel are the energy left behind but thats all that gets left, that physical person is gone whoever it is, you or someone else , you have the chance to be a new person who is wiser this time. whenever i have had the line someone has left, physically, the last time i cast this line it was me who left, either way you are in position to have a fresh outlook.

Death of the ego into oneness or wholeness? Death of two egos momentarily to become one? Maybe there's a pop song lurking in here? Nope. Too holy.

"Service to a bigger cause"... I agree wholeheartedly. People call it twin flame love. It's interesting how ideas alone can't capture certain feelings and things. Poetry seems a bridge between heart and mind.

We can only hope for a holy wedding.

Kahlil Gibran on Love

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Thanks, dragona. But I feel pretty peaceful. My life is good. I'm happy actually. Strange. Oh well if my love life this year will be characterized by an end. Been there and done that. It'll give me time to clean house. Maybe I will stay single for the rest of my life. For the first time, I'm not looking for my soul mate. Doubly strange. I think she may be on the other side already. Dang, that means I have to spend all my time and money on myself. No!!!! :rofl::duh::blush:

My situation is similar, I asked if he would repair and return. I have a feeling no, but I feel a lonely peacefulness. Major improvement :brickwall: Thank you for the post, goodluck with your search.
