Good evening everyone.

My husband and I are relocating cross country to my home state in a few months and due to his current job not being willing to grant him work from home privileges, so he is looking for a job in the new state.

He does graphic design work so most of his work is done via computers and using digital media.

There is a company that we are hoping will hire him on since they will cover most of our moving expenses and it is in the same town where we will be living, so it is ideal, since the next largest city is an hour away each way, and that would be a very stressful commute for him.

The employment agency he is working with mentioned two possible positions that the company is considering him for, a UX designer, and a UI designer.

Since I am already overwhelmed with the logistics of this cross country move and I am feeling very afraid that a job will not be forthcoming, I would like to get some feedback on a couple of readings.

I asked: Is (my husband) going to be hired on as a UX designer @ (company's name)?
The answer I received was: 42.2.3.4>1

Second question was pretty much the same, only I asked about the UI position:
49.2>43 was that response.

Both of these seem really positive with the UX position being more likely, though the line 3 in the first reading gives me pause. Blessed through hardship sounds like he may not get the position, but things will be alright despite this. I really like the relating hexagram of 1 because it tells me there is a lot of energy and power behind this path. That helps me feel more confident since it feels like we are spinning our wheels and are getting nothing but delays.

I don't know, maybe I am not seeing something or am just too worried to understand that everything is going to be alright no matter what.

Thank you,

Amber Rose

It does look good for him getting the position..or if he doesn't something better, given 42>1 has so much oomph in it.

So the UX and the UI are in the same company right ? I can't help but feel he will get one of them yes but perhaps they will be a bit of to and fro between the roles so he won't immediately be fixed in one role when he gets there.

Several things make me say this. 42.3 often shows up when unfavourable outer conditions (for others) benefit ourselves. This line assures us there is no error in our benefiting in this way here. This could be for example the department lost some staff or there's a reshuffle hence making space for your husband. Also 49.2 looks as if he's part of some big changes in the workplace there maybe. He's appearing at the right time, and appearing at the right time has that hexagram 1 feel to it also. Also of course 42.4 refers to relocating the capital which is exactly what you are doing and he is also relocating his own work capital.

So to me, although I hesitate to give full on prediction to others (although I like doing it to myself ;))
this does all look very favourable. To me it looks like there's a lot of change going on in that company and he may find his role changing there, but in a good way. Maybe he will get more flexibility within his role.

Good Luck

Thank you, Trojina! That helps put my mind to ease. What you said actually does reflect the current situation too. Both of these positions (the UX and UI jobs) are in the same company, and this company just opened the location my husband is applying to work at this past January, so I'm sure they are doing reshuffling since they just hired a department manager to lead the UX team.

Now I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open for any unfortunate events that we have benefitted from and will update as soon as I have a better idea of what the outcome will be.

Thank you!

Is (my husband) going to be hired as a UX DESIGNER @ (company) 42,2,3,4>1

There is such a mix of different qualities and aspects involved in this reading that it presents quite a complex challenge in terms of degrees of emphasis and importance.

The overall context: 42>1
This is a very positive overall context but please note that the Relating/Resultant Hexagram ( 1, Ch’ien) whilst often indicating creative harmony can also bespeak situations requiring strength, endurance and abiding faith.

2nd Yin

(a) Someone does indeed increase him,
Ten pairs of tortoises cannot oppose it,
Constant perseverance brings good fortune.
The king presents him before God.
Good fortune.

(b) …..This comes from without.

This line is clearly indicating good fortune but please note that the appeal for “constant perseverance” implies that this will probably only come after a period of sustained effort. Also, the good fortune may well be connected to someone external to your husband’s work situation.
The Zhi gua (line resultant) of 2nd yin is Hex 61 Chung Fu - Inner Truth / Inner Trust This again implies that you sustain your faith over a period of time, It is described as “Inner” trust because it is something that should be held and protected very deeply — away from the reach of mundane mind and everyday experience. That way it will manifest and become a living reality in your life.


3rd Yin:

(a) One is enriched through unfortunate events.
No blame, jf you are sincere
And walk in the middle,
And report with a seal to the prince.

(b) “One is enriched through unfortunate events.”
This is something that certainly is one’s due.

Don’t be dismayed by this line, with most unfortunate events we have no idea whatsoever about their imminent arrival, but with this one we can make ourselves
mentally prepared. The text urges us to “walk in the middle,” that is to be neither fearful and withdrawn about the approaching challenge nor full of wild over-confidence. Instead keep yourself balanced and calm. If you can meet the challenge with this mindset you will be far more likely to deal with it calmly and effectively, with clarity of mind. The Zhi Gua for this line is Hex 37 Chia Jen - The Family, and this could well indicate that the coming challenge will be in the sphere of relationships.

4th Yin

(a) If you walk in the middle
And report to the prince,
He will follow.
It furthers one to be used
In the removal of the capital.

(b) “If you report to the prince, he
will follow,” because his purposes are
thereby increased.

This line is acting rather like a confirmation of the whole process. Again you are urged to maintain a calm balanced approach throughout. The removal of the capital is your proposed move, with your husband, to a new location. “Report to the Prince…” keep in regular contact with the I Ching, by doing this you will enhance and support the universal process.

This reading is very positive but there are difficulties to be faced. If these are approached in the right way your husband's career move should turn out to be successful.

Could the someone external to my husband's work situation be a recruiter for the employment agency my husband is using? Or is it someone completely detached from his work, like a friend or relative?

Can't really say other than it could well be someone completely unexpected. As the situation develops and you begin to identify any possible helpers then it's worth asking specific questions in order to try to make your assessment of them firmer and firmer, but don't push this, simply wait until they emerge.

I think you are onto something Peter so I did a reading on the current staffing agency my husband is using.

I asked "Is XYZ agency going to help (my husband) get a job offer before we move to (my hometown)?"
41.1.2.6>2 was the answer.

Line 6 gave me a bit of a startle, but I saw one interpretation that pointed to literally uprooting oneself and moving to a whole other location for work, so that was comforting.

The first two lines point to balancing giving and taking and making sure to not take more than we give.

Seems promising. I am not sure if I mentioned before that we are also moving to be closer to my parents who are having health problems and I am worried that they will pass away before they get to see my daughter, their grand baby.

That goes along with the reading too, I think, because we want to look after them, but by leaving his current job, and the state where he has lived his entire life, and basically take us out of our comfort zone, we are making a pretty big sacrifice.
Which also ties into what the first two lines are talking about. I think overall this reading is saying that our risk is not going to be in vain, and that we will be taken care of so I shouldn't worry. Just as long as we take the proper actions and doing our best to ensure that we are doing our best to find work, a place to live, etc, that we will be okay.

My husband also signed up with a few more agencies just to cast a wider net in terms of finding more jobs and having more people aiding him, so I did readings on those agencies as well asking the same question I asked for his primary staffing agency.

ABC staffing agency:
9.1>57
This one sounds like a no right off the bat.

DEF staffing agency:
16.5>45
Maybe they can help provide him with some assignments that are short term, or some freelance jobs but it doesn't seem like it would be a very reliable or satisfying source.

QRS staffing agency:
4.3>18
Maybe they will offer something that sounds good but won't really be that great after all.
Or, they will offer him a job posing half naked for a calendar? I don't know, this line always makes me giggle because it reminds me of hordes of teenagers chasing after the Beatles during Beatlemania.
and TUV staffing agency:
37.2>9

This sounds like they are somehow strict or maybe won't want to bother looking for work for him until after we have moved.


Thank you,

Amber Rose

I asked "Is XYZ agency going to help (my husband) get a job offer before we move to (my hometown)?"
41.1.2.6>2 was the answer.

The overall structure of Hex 41 (Ken above Tui) gives, in a simplistic interpretation, the decrease/control of eruptive urges (Tui) by self restraint (Ken). If Decrease is carried out correctly it contains within itself the potential for Increase but this requires careful assessment.

1st yang: You might be repeatedly overloading your progress with too many options. Try to identify the necessary ones and, after dealing with them, quickly move-on to the next stage. Be aware that in seeking to increase someone you might actually be decreasing him. Carefully distinguish the difference between his needs/wants and your own. The Zhi Gua for this line is Hex 4, Youthful Folly so the situation contains the possibility of naive error.

2nd yang: Perseverance is called for. A vital part of using the I Ching is understanding that the timing of events is dictated by the universal process (The Dao) rather than by ourselves. Of course, we can act whenever we like but that action will only succeed if it is in harmony with the Dao of the situation. A key part of that process is in allowing events to unfold to the point where the readings give us a clear indication of action, until then we must persevere. The Zhi Gua for the line gives us Hex 27, Corners of the Mouth — be careful and wary of your thoughts and ideas (of how you feed your mind).

Top yang: If you can persevere to this point your choice of action should become clear. The situation opens out as a flow of positive energy grows stronger and stronger (Line resultant Hex 19, Approach). You should attain your will in great measure.

The overall Zhi Gua, Hex 2, Earth emphasises the passive acceptance needed in this situation. By accepting this with perseverance you allow the true destiny of your husband and yourself to emerge. Meanwhile check-out the timing with a question such as "Due to parental ill-health should we attempt to move house as quickly as possible?”

Best Wishes,

Peter

Thank you, Peter! What you said actually does make sense. We should hear back tomorrow about the company we are hoping my husband will get hired on with. So far the process is so long and I am doing my best to remain optimistic, it's just not easy.

I followed your advice and asked if we should move as quickly as possible.
13.1>33 was the response. Kind of an odd response since I was asking about my parents. Maybe it is talking about making connections with employers and meeting up with the woman who's house we are going to rent.

You could well be right on this, Amber. You need to confirm this with further questions but the I Ching might well be suggesting that you go ahead and meet the people you've mentioned. Sometimes the I Ching will give a response that answers every possible aspect of a situation in one reading. At other times you might have to build-up your answer from several readings, but if it seems reluctant don't push it, simply allow the situation to abide in your subconscious for a day or so and then ask again.

Just a quick update on the situation:

My husband didn't get a job with the company he had applied to work for. They decided to go with candidates who have more years experience in the field. He does however have several interviews lined up and has been signed on to do freelance work with a company that is only minutes away from where we will be living.

My mother found out that her health is in even worse shape than we had realized, and our rent in our current apartment is going to be increased once our lease is up at the end of May, so we decided to move a month earlier than we had planned.
Feels chaotic but positive, and I am happy to be able to see my parents sooner rather than later.
