Hello everyone! I am not inexperienced in the i ching, but i am fairly new. Really need some help on this reading, if its on offer. 54 confuses me!
My question was this:

'if i love X regardless of the situation, and present circumstances, what potential exists in the future to win her love?'

I thought this was succinct, but my answer is confusing:

54>58


I take this to be positive, but it means accepting things the way they are right now, and taking a gamble, and probably suffering, but it could bloom in the future ( I am flexible about how far into the future this could mean. I am prepared to wait forever!)
This is very difficult for me at the moment, because she is with someone else, and we have discussed it already. But when I consider just letting go, now that she is unavailable, and giving into to my feelings for her, I begin to feel free and joyous. I was afraid of falling in love with her, but there is nothing to lose now, it seems, and the feelings are just waiting to be affirmed.
What are people's thoughts? I am on the edge here. It may never happen, but just going for it and loving her...it feels like it could be a total release. Is this a positive reading? I am not certain, though I feel it could be, and I feel it could not. 54 seems to be negative , but 58 seems like a more promising outcome.
Please help!

Well, the problem with Hex 54 is that you are dealing with a situation that is absolutelly beyond your control and you might be swept off your feet. You have to bear in mind that the person who gets Hex 54 is in a secondary position.
The 5th moving line suggests that if you accept your humble position now you might stand a chance with her and even have a relationship. But I am wondering if you would really get her love and total attention as you seem to want.

Hope others on this forum can clarify it better for you.

54.5 > 58 In the beginning you may win her interest but not her love but after a period of chatting together an affection will come to life in her, she will become your true friend. Of course it will take time and perseverance.

54>58

Interpretation 1: Hex 54 is about being powerless in new circumstances, and Hex 58 is about bringing what's inside you to expression. Put it together and you get: "In the future you will be powerless to win her love by expressing your love for her."

Interpretation 2: Hex 54 is also the Marrying Maiden. (I had a buddy once who asked the Yi if he should marry someone. The Yi gave him Hex 54 and some changing lines. He didn't understand the whole changing lines thing, so he decided to interpret the drawing of 'Marrying Maiden' as a nudge to marry the girl, which he did. That was almost 40 years ago. They're still together, and happy enough.) Put this together and you get: "You will marry her in the future by expressing your love for her."

Take your pick.

Hi maximum,

I read 54>58 as: if you accept the limitations of the situation gracefully, and do not try to change what you have no power to change, in time, you'll find true inner contentment.
