Greetings :bows:
I am not sure what to make out of this answer, because I have never asked in this form before, I think...but Yi is very wide in its meanings, so not sure how to interprete this:
WHAT will be the next major thing to happen in my life? Hex. 53.5,6 into 15
The reason to ask this question is that I am very affraid of possible future shocks, because the recent one was a drop to spill over.
No job, no social life, no energy, loads of depression from unability to do much about it and caring for sick parent without help from family or social care - this country is in a bad shape.:mad: (to summ it up as much as I can).

Also wodered what to do to get out of this mess but hex 3.1,5 into 7 did not seem to enlighten me much :eek:

I don`t feel there is much to hope for, so just to see a bit ahead, tried to ask about my financial situation till the end of the year: hex. 40.5 into 47
and romantic situation also :eek: hex 15. 4, 6 into 56
If someone would care to comment on some of these castings, I would appritiate it - too close to home perhaps, or too discouraged alltogether :bag:

Sorry to put this many castings in one post, it can be tiering :blush:

the economic downturn has been worldwide, a lot of people are in your position but right now is a bit of an upswing, possible it could turn down again beginning next year.

53.5,6 into 15

sounds like these hard times are a part of a 'gradual' process, something you've been cultivating developing over time. line 5, you have not been able to do what you want, create what you want but you will. Line 6 I think whatever has =been developing in you (resilience perhaps) becomes so intrinsic that all but a few feathers are no longer visible, or rather at the fore of your conciousness. It goes into a different level.

and 15 I think as a backdrop describes a sort of leveling out and being forced to live humbly. And as advice I think it can point to being apart of your community through service of some kind no matter how small, in Lise's 'team words' sense.

3.1,5 into 7

you need to get organised, and nuture the spark thats starting within you, being frustrated is a good place to be, it will help you get yourself going.
line 1, settle on a project , doesnt matter if it will fail later, settle on it and get in charge of it
line 5, a warning to keep goals small at the moment, you are nursing a seedling not a fully grown oak tree.

dont worry about the other two readings, take care of these things, the rest will come. Also last reading ties in nicely with the first, no romantic gaurantee though. But with 56 you can easily meet new people without being entangled.

53.6 is about transcending the current situation, leaving it behind, after long period of difficulties (53.5) Meantime you are plodding on doing what you can (hex 15)

I would be pleased to get this answer. It does show one entirely going beyond the current situation

Also wodered what to do to get out of this mess but hex 3.1,5 into 7 did not seem to enlighten me much :eek:

This is okay and I feel its in line with the previous reading. You can't make big steps right now , just small ones (3.5) and you do need more help (3.1) which should come in time. It fits with the 53 reading because progress can't be rushed now..all you have to do is keep on keeping on doing what you have to do...but 53.5 says eventually you make your way through this stuck time and go entirely beyond it (53.6)


I don`t feel there is much to hope for, so just to see a bit ahead, tried to ask about my financial situation till the end of the year: hex. 40.5 into 47

i think all the readings so far do show hope, not immediate release but you are getting there. 40.5 shows you do have it in your power to resolve to some degree financial burdens
and romantic situation also :eek: hex 15. 4, 6 into 56

Hex. 53.5,6 into 15


You will meet new friends.

What to do to get out of this mess?
hex 3.1,5 into 7


3.1,5 changes into 2, but no matter. Join something. What organization appeals to you? An art group? A dance group? Somebody wants you to join them.

My financial situation till the end of the year?
40.5 into 47


Questionable. Don't expect any miraculous changes, and don't take any wild risks with your finances.

Romantic situation?
15. 4, 6 into 56


It will improve, but maybe not as you expect. And don't compare your country to others. There is chaos everywhere.

Hello back :bows:
have to say that these readings still have not reached me, probabily because still trying to recover from recent emotional issues.
With all due respect to meeting new friends, is that the major thing? I was thinking more in terms of a possible new shock, financial one, or something splendid like that :bag:

Something to join is a good idea always, but hard to get something good free of charge.

Love with a foreign man I have tried to keep alive, so you are not refering to that flame rekindling again, are you Trojan?

The big question for me summs to this: What will become of me and of fulfilling my potentials in life? Hex 27.2,3.5 into 9
Now this is no good - I think it speaks of my current situation, how I am nurturing myself from the wrong source, not being financialy independant and in alliance with a sick parent sets me back in every way. Nothnig new :mad:
Do you see anything beyond reproach in this reading?

Volunteering doesn't cost anything. You draw. Teach a neighborhood kid to draw.

I see no reproach. Filial piety is the first virtue in traditional Chinese culture. In my (ahem) idiosyncratic understanding of the hexagrams, Hex 27 refers to the obligation to feed one's parents, which apparently you are doing. Don't you cook for your mother? Remember, she cooked for you. And the 'return' of Hex 9 is the bessings ancestral spirits bring to the family. Aren't there aids in your extended family? For example, if you need to work, could your mother stay with a sister or cousin while you did so?

There. That should be two pennies' worth.

Ok, thanks, but it would be giving lessons (done that, long ago), not joining something...I think I need an activity, something to make me want to achieve more......not many interested in my lessons, atm. The most usefull thing would be to do internship in a school but if you are unemployed, you have to PAY in order to do it here and it is hard to get in (not if get in as an imployee)
I know of respect for elderly in Cinese culture, but I am beeing reproached for taking my mother from the nursing home because she said to me she wanted to come back because of financial reasons. My choice, my problem - I was told latter on.
Remember I asked Yi about that and I think i got 20.6? it said that if I go tru with this decision I will loose my freedom wich I have but I was burned out and unable to find a job. Now I am burned out by monotony of my life.
In for a penny, in for a pound? :)

I think not... I was into graphic art, and for that one needs an specifically equiped studio.

Can you draw portraits? People will pay for portraits of children. Sargent's The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit is my favorite picture. I realize you can shot down any suggestion I throw up, but if you engaged your talents you wouldn't feel burned out.

Dragona, I am sorry you deleted the above post which I received as email. I am not unaware of your situation. I was the primary caregiver of my late mother -- all nursing duties, 24/7, and the last few weeks of her life I fed her through a gastric tube. I know very well how stressful and demanding such caring can be. Nevertheless, I am sure I did the right thing, although I have probably had health problems as a consequence of it.

I am also aware of the difficulties of marketing graphic skills. I have three Internet acquaintances who are skilled artists and yet have been unabled to market their skills. I cannot draw a straight line, but I had two relatives with remarkable graphic ability. One, whom I offered to help financially to attend art school and who could draw extraordinary portraits, spent her life working in a shoe store and died young from a heart attack. The other spent most of his life working as a janitor and handyman when he should have been working in the greeting card industry. So much wasted talent. In spite of the negatives in your life, I believe that there are creative possibilities available to you if you persist in pursuing them. Failure needn't be final.

I did not want to turn divination page into personal whining space, that is why...but if you got it as a message, that is ok, I guess...
It feels like the Radiohead song lyrics "I`m not living, I`m just killing time"
And I can relate to what you have shared, thank you for it sencerely :hug:

Do you see anything beyond reproach in this reading?

I feel you are getting too despondent here....you ask a question about fulfilling your potential for your whole life ? ...as in "what will become of me" so it sounds like you are falling into a trap of viewing your life like a potentially doomed story. Are you quite young.....I ask becasue I think thats a feature of youth, at least I recall those kind of thoughts when young so I know they are a real waste of time...you may as well take what sustenance you can from each and every place its offered to you right now not in some fictional future with all the things that are meant to make people happy (but actually don't particularly because everything there is to be had you have already in a sense...so I am opinionating here but feel it resonates with the 27 reading. Not seeing what you do have, sort of not starting from where you are but wanting to start from some place that doesn't exist yet.


I think if you start to appreciate what already is you can get nourished from there, build on from that. Long distance ponderings about life fulfillment are stultifying whereas taking immediate pleasure and meaning in the now, which is actually all there ever is, is always enriching.

So I don't see reproach inthis answer I see that you by necessity have to live quite small now (hex 9) you have to tend things, take care of things, maintain things and amidst this somehow you are refusing or maybe rather not seeing the nourishment that is there for you. Its there in non obvious ways (27.5)


hopefully that makes sense

I meant to add, that in my experience anyway, all that small tending in hexagram 9 isn't just drudgery it really does mount up to contribute to more substantial steps forward when the time comes.

All the qualities and skills you are now developing in this life situation you find yourself in are exactly the ones you need to be developing...and will perfectly equip you for later life situations and challenges. You feel despondent because you can't see the big picture only this little bit of your life...so I think the way through may be conscientiously tending the 'little' life you feel you have and finding the nourishment in it as i said before. Probably if you dropped the idea you are in the wrong place at the wrong time things would feel much better.,less drained = less resistance allowing more nourishment.
