Hello,:bows:

I have difficulties interpreting the hexagrams I received and I would appreciate any help and insights you can offer.
I have been working with this company for a while and I do like my job, it is very rewarding , but it is a very competitive job, since we work on commision and people are at each others throats sometimes, and I really bothers me. This is only a temporary job for me until I get more experience and build my makeup artist portfolio to get a job at an agency, doing makeup for magazines and commercials. That is my dream!
There is an agency that I am interested working at, but I still have to build my portfolio, before I apply.
I asked the I ching:
Would it be good (favorable) for me to apply at agency x? I got 58 1. 47

I think this line encourages me to work towards that, I have it in me to achieve what I want. 47 could indicate that I can get discouraged easily and worry a lot. ??

What can/should I do to get a position at agency x?
I got 55 5.6. 13

Well, line 5 and 6 are very much opposites. :confused: While line 5 is positive, line 6 says misfortune. I am wondering if this line speaks about misfortune that is going to happen, it is fix, or is it only a warning. It changes into 13, which is working together with people in harmony.Is it the outcome or the background of the situation? I am not seeing a connection and I hope you can help.

Thank you for reading,

Manci :)

I agree I think with your interpretation of your first answer - its kind of like a 'why not' - or why get bogged down here (47) there could be some joy in getting up and going with this (58.1) and some lightening up too perhaps :)

As for your second answer 55 to 13 i see quite a strong message about joining in/meeting others/being sociable. 55.6 warns about being trapped within your own isolation and 13 shows community - so the way I view your answer is a good way to get a position at agency x is to jump in and present yourself and mingle. (Line 6 doesn't mean misfortune willcome but that if you isolate yourself you may miss out in one way or another - since they are not going to come knocking on your door you have to go to them if you want them)

Thats my immediate impression anyway

Line 58.1 is about communicating with others, so in this case it suggests for you to go ahead and contact them and in doing so you will find out a lot more about the agency that you want to join.
Hex 47 suggests that you will not get the job first time around, so after rejection, just bide your time and then apply again at a later date.

What can/should I do to get a position at agency x?
I got 55 5.6. > 13

This suggests that you need to seek out other people to advise you on the best strategy of getting accepted by the agency, but don't over do your pursuit of this job, be realistic in your aims.
Hex 13 indicates that you have to learn to cooperate with others for the greater good, as you will not be working alone at the agency, you will be part of a team.

Thank you Trojan and Willowfox for your interpretations.
I met a girl few days ago, who works at the agency and I was advised by her to build my portfolio and apply as an assistant to an artrist. Thats the best way to get in as a makeup artist with not much experience.
My first question was not time related, what if I apply now, but more like a big picture if it is good for me to work towards that goal. the second answer advises to go ahead and mingle and make connections. Does it tell me to apply now, or should I first get helpers and then apply?
How do you see it? Thank you in advance!:bows:

The orcale responded:

55: ABUNDANCE has success.
The king attains abundance.
Be not sad.
Be like the sun at midday.

Being like the sun a midday suggests that you are at a peak time that you should take advantage of. The sun is strongest at midday. If you wait too long, the opportunity may pass (the sun may set).

This interpretation seems to be supported by:
55.5
Six in the fifth place means:
Lines are coming,
Blessing and fame draw near.
Good fortune.

You wondered about the meaning of:
55.6
Six at the top means:
His house is in a state of abundance.
He screens off his family.
He peers through the gate
And no longer perceives anyone.
For three years he sees nothing.
Misfortune.

In The Mandate of Heaven, SJ Marshall points out that this line describes a self-imposed 3-year ritual of mourning. Karcher suggests that this line advises breaking out of a trap, not shutting yourself in, for these options lead to misfortune. Karcher writes:
"Become aware of your situation and join with others. Don't be afraid to act on your own. You are connected to a creative force."

All of this takes you to:

13: FELLOWSHIP WITH MEN in the open.
Success.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
The perseverance of the superior man furthers.

Sounds good to me.

I see the answer as saying you can apply but you won't get anywhere at the moment because basically you are just not ready and it certainly says that you need helpers.

Thank you all for your help again. I know that I am not ready just yet, but I will work hard towards my goal and socialize and cooperate with as many people as possible.
