Hi All,

I've asked a couple questions lately receiving 42. Today when I noticed it was repeating, I asked "Please give me insight into the transfer situation." as I do a transfer that requires assistance daily and have been advised of problems regarding communication so people know what to do when (though they have done more or less the same transfer since the year 2009, and I don't see it being that different now that it would need to be more explicitly explained.)

In response to the above question, I received 42.2.5.6. It's interesting that other questions around where I live and working with the personal care staff have been involving hexagram 42 leading to other hexagrams as well. Does a recurring 42 mean anything in particular?

An earlier question which received the same hexagram was asking Should I stay at M instead of pursuing C? (M & C are two apartments).

Hexagram 19 - Approaching an Increase - Hexagram 42. Line 2 - an inner truth brings an increase to someone that can not be opposed. With an enduring determination and an offer, this is auspicious. Line 5 - Being true and kind is your virtue and will be auspicious. Line 6 - If you do not keep your character or your heart steady, you will have difficulty, and misfortune. This line reminds me of someone that is torn between two, and only needs to follow the truth in their heart. Staying steady and consistent.


If you are consistently getting Hexagram 42- increase, look around you. Who or what is trying to bring you an increase. Is there an increase you need to accept? Proceed probing to gather the harvest. Cross the great river to gather the harvest. What do you need to proceed probing (What do you need to explore further)? What river do you need to cross?

For your earlier question "Should I stay at M, instead of pursuing C?" Instead of asking two questions in one try, "What if I stay at M?" then "What if I go with C?" This should bring you better clarity. Otherwise the answer is something like... Well, it furthers you to cross the great river. This will bring you increase. When you see good, move towards it. When you see bad, eliminate it. Then you have the image of wind over thunder. Is there a storm at M? If there is, perhaps that is where the increase is. Or, is there a storm at C? The question comes back to you. Which would be increasing for you? Which would you need to cross a great river to get to? Ect, ect, ect...

Basically, somewhere an increase is available to you. You just need to figure out where. It must be something you are meant to have or of some importance, if you continuously get the hexagram.

To me, 42 is a hexagram of available potentials based upon timing. A window of opportunity to gain, to move ahead, and to grow. It does not guarantee anything. Note the important word "if" in the text, denoting that increase is based on creating the conditions for increase. If you bring increase to no one, including yourself, you create a precarious condition: use it or lose it.

Hmm, well at M, I've been in the process of speaking to the powers that be about improvements to the living space to get some reno's done to make it more proper. That's the first thought that comes to mind reading your post, sooo. In terms of personal increase or gain, I feel there is none here at M. There are constant issues arising, a constant fight or battle.

"What if I stay at M?" ---> 58 Unchanging. I couldn't help but laugh when I thought "Joyousness" given constant issues, constant fights or battles. In another somewhat unrelated situation where I got 58, issues seem to persist but the person I wondered about is still there off and on.

"What if I go with C?" ---> 58.1.4. Who would have thought this would get the same hexagram, with just different lines? Are the two results much different from each other by anyone's interpretations here?

Well, a couple of things come to mind. The first is, unchanging hexagrams is said to be stagnant or not going anywhere. No room for growth or change. What you see is what you get. There is no guarantee the exchange is even joyful, just that its an exchange. Then again, perhaps you are capable of being joyful in either place.

However, if you go with C it looks like you come from hexagram 29 - a deep and dark abyss of emotions and lessons into hexagram 58 - a joyous exchange. Line 1 - and you get a harmonious exchange indeed, and its auspicious. Line 4 - Just seems you are not yet sure about it or at peace with it. You need to explore it, talk it out. Work through any conflicts and you will have mutual joy. There is growth and mutual joy if you go with C.

If you look back at 42, it calls for movement. There is advancement in movement. Sounds like you are already at M. So movement would take you to C. No? Have you explored C? Seems you are actually at 29 right now. Step into 58, make the joyous exchange, so you can 42 have an increase. Hopefully you haven't missed your window of opportunity.

I'm not sure if I've missed the window of opportunity or not, but these results are making a lot more sense given your explanations/interpretations, blue_angel. :) I am currently at M, and C is in a nearby city which has city buses that come to the city I am in currently so it's possible to get here. C is in a more residential area that seems quieter if I look at google maps. I have not actually been to C and looked at the area yet but maybe should explore it.

What are my employment prospects if I move to C? 43.2.4 > 63. I'm seeing this as meaning moving forward out of current circumstances and perhaps 63 being the end/completion of issues with regard to finding employment.

What are my employment prospects while living at M? 16 unchanging. I am instantly reminded of your comment about unchanging hexagrams not going anywhere or being stagnant, blue_angel. Interesting I got that with M and employment prospects too.

Hexagram 63 will be where you are coming from or the context to the question. Not a result nor future outcome. Kartcher has "63 describes your situation in terms of an important move from one position to another. It emphasizes that actively proceeding with the crossing is the adequate way to handle it." Amazing how well that fits with your situation. LiSe has "The noble one takes thought of misfortune and guards against it." That's basically what you seem to be doing, preparing yourself. Now...


Hexagram 43 - you make a break-through, and a change for the better. Line 2, you seem to be very fearful of this change, but you will be so well prepared, there is no need to worry. Line 4, To move feels so hard, it is painful for you. If you can allow yourself to be lead like a sheep, you will be fine. But you don't trust the advice you are given nor the words that you hear.

Unless there is more to your story, that you do not feel comfortable sharing here. It seems you are just fearful of this move and change. Unnecessarily. I mean, surely no one has actually beaten your buttocks to the point of you not having any skin. And if they have, all the more reason to hurry up and move.

Change is hard for people everywhere. I know so many people that would rather live miserably than make a change. Because they have become comfortable with the misery. At least they know what's coming, it has become predictable. To make a change, means facing the new and unknown. Not saying you are miserable. Just giving an example.


Hexagram 16 takes on several meanings, enthusiasm, illusion, music. I have had 16 when I am overly worked up or overly enthusiastic over some situation. I have also had it as me wanting to believe my own illusions and not face reality. And I have had it as a connection to others through music. But yes it is unchanging, so again seems stagnant, and no room for growth. Have any family members recently past on? If not disregard, it just mentions connecting with the ancestors in the image. Are you pursuing employment in music by chance?


Then again, 16 unchanging somewhat makes sense. Since you have described the situation at M as constant fights and battles. So 16 unchanging could be showing this won't change. This will continue as is, with you having to be all worked up over issues.

An update, where i was looking at as C is not suitable for me... I looked there and decided it was not workable. It felt like it would be going backward rather than moving forward with regards to my circumstances living at M.

In thinking about the housing issue lately, where I am and the care I receive by living there vs. my option of having more control over my care living somewhere else, I decided to ask "How do I progress regarding my housing issue?" and received 47.1.2.6. The hexagram seems a little negative to me, exhaustion doesn't seem to me like it's able to move forward. But maybe there's something more to it and the lines? I'm not sure it really relates to the past results, but since it's related to where I live I thought I'd put it in this thread.

Hello friend:

Each hexagram and word in I Ching have all kinds of meanings, that's why we need to try to explain it after we get a hexagram. Just as I said before:"It is easy to get a hexagram, but it is difficult to get an answer." Explaining a hexagram needs knowledge and practices. So a recurring 42 does not mean anything in particular, because when you ask question A, Hex 42 have a certain meaning; when you ask question B, Hex 42 may have a different meaning from the previous case.

In fact, Hex 42 means support and help, it is consistent with your work, isn't it?

When you get Hex 42.2.5.6 > 19, it shows that the transfer situation may be getting worse in the next year. The code of Hex 19 says "You will have ill luck in August of the lunar calendar"(In Chinese calendar, August of the lunar calendar corresponds to September Gregorian calendar).
