What does X want from me? Please show me an image. Hexagram 29 unchanging. About a man in my circle of friends who obviously wants something (I can tell, others can tell), but doesn't make a clear move. We had a little bit of history together, but that was long ago. I'm cold towards him now and have no idea what he thinks about that.

My interpretation is that he wants me to reveal my feelings, to be honest with him (not necessarily in a direct way). Or...it could be a warning for me. If so, hex 29 doesn't sound good at all. I would like to hear some other opinions too. Thank you. :bows:

Seems he's a little afraid of you and this intrigues him. Perhaps he sees your relationship as a challenge and mysteriously uncertain. Somehow this hexagram feels like a warning to me, something kind of predatory about it.

Thank you, Kalikari.
He might be afraid because of my attitude. As for the warning part...funny thing, today I found a fortune cookie message that kind of suit this reading: "don't turn back or you'll miss your next turn".

Hi eastern_girl,

For me 29 means learning by repeating, not necessarily a bad thing, we have to learn to grow. I don't think the danger is so bad, its more like, sometimes repeating a life lesson over and over until its learned is not always fun, can be pretty unpleasant. I tend to get 29 when my mind is in flux, or I am.thinking out of my current reality. Its possible that the answer you are receiving, (29) is not about what he wants from you at all, but more to do with you and your life experience, but because you asked about him and what he wants with you, the answer could be somewhere along the lines of, associating with this man will bring about a repeat of life lessons. How was your history with him? Why did you go separate ways? The fortune cookie is interesting. :)

Hi Eastern Girl.

Well, first of all, I myself am very new and inexperienced with the iChing. With that said, here are my honest thoughts and impressions.

First of all, the fact alone that your answer is unchanging gives me the impression that whatever he wants from you is not significant - either, at the moment he doesn't want it enough or it's not very important. And I say this because I've almost never had unchaging hexes except one time, when I was asking about a former lover who had recently left to another state. It was a cute answer 'let people come and go as they please' was part of it, but it was unchanging.

Now going in to hex 29 (the abysmal (water)) "flow like pure water through difficult situations". It says a lot of things that I can't relate to you (simply because I'm not you and know nothing about your situation except for what you have mentioned). What does stand out to me in context of your question is the warning of being "emotionally ambitious". That gives me the impression that this question is a bit emotionally ambitious on your part. Don't get me wrong, the hex does NOT give me the impression that the man you asked about doesn't want anything at all from you, but more like... maybe he is still figuring out what he wants. It may turn to nothing, it may become something, but the iChing is not a fortune telling device and the hallmark of your relationship right now is - things are being worked out. His feelings for you are not enough for him to want to act on.

"It is not that you shouldn't act now, it's that you shouldn't act out of frustration, anxiety, despair, or a desire to escape the situation." (Or, in your case, to enter a situation you are curious about). "Instead, still yourself and look for the lesson hidden inside the difficulty. ...Abandon your goals and stay on the path, where you proceed step by step, arm in arm, with the Sage." To me, that tells me you are looking into it too much. Maybe you don't feel truly (emotionally) attracted to him but a part of you is (mentally) attracted to him in a matter of speaking, perhaps you're in denial about it, but, well something you yourself said in this forum supports this belief of mine. Your fortune cookie. Fortune cookies are just silly entertainment. :p Not oracles. I think you are LOOKING for an answer too hard (that's the ambition/goal) for something that, at the moment, doesn't have one. Maybe through examining the situation you are reminded of why it didn't work out in the first place and see things are better off apart, perhaps interest rekindles, perhaps it fades altogether. Let things develop on their own and flow like water.

Thank you Blue Angel,
Thank you Lovely,

I read your interpretations carefully, they were very helpful and I think you both have a point. In the meantime, I came to the conclusion that what really matters now is what I want...not what he wants. Maybe this is what Yi is telling me with this answer too. And quite frankly...I don't think it's him that I want. He hasn't been exactly fair with me in the past.
