Hi everyone,

I wanted to be sure that I was asking the Yi a question that did not have any bias, so I thought I would word it as follows:

"Yi, what do you want to tell me about my dreams of me marrying (the woman in my life)?" Sound like a good way to pose an unbiased question?

The answer I received was, at least in my interpretation, pretty straightforward:

Hexagram 58 - no lines changing. Wow! Tui! the Joyous! This could be a positive answer! And I mean REALLY positive.
So, I asked a follow up question - almost like having a conversation with the Yi..."Yi, are you telling me that there will come a time when (the woman in my life) will marry me?" The answer I received, also with no changing lines was Hexagram 49 - Ko - Revolution (Molting). Hmmmm. Not as clear to me as I interpreted the first one. Now, I understand that Ko is really about a gradual change, like an animal molting its fur. But how does this relate to my question? Does this mean that this situation will slowly come about? I don't expect that it will just "happen". At this point in our relationship, such a development would take time. But I am confused about the real meaning of hex. 49 in this situtation.

I would appreciate any feedback about these readings. As these are "big" questions, I would like to be sure that I am on the right track.

Many, many thanks in advance.

Don

With no changing lines-

58 - Your luck in this endeavor will be a function of your want and your taste. You may have to ask her some day.

49 - All in due time. It also might require a sensitivity to When the time comes due.

Hello Bradford,

Thank you for your timely response. I appreciate you getting back to me. From what you say, luck is on my side, and things will happen in due time. But, as with all endeavours, I will have to be alert in this "opportunity" to be able to take advantage of the situation when it presents itself.

Again, thank you for your response!

Sincerely,

Don

Hi Don-
I didn't really say that that luck was on your side. You have to want this to happen and that want has to move you towards what you desire. It won't just happen if you do nothing. Court her.

Hi Don

58 is about pleasure and join with friends; but not necessary as marriage (like 32). Even so, this first stage (increse of friendship) could be necessary in order of later marriage.

Again you got a double-trigram hex; it means is a process of 405 days.

The Time ruling your dreams started between 16 March and 1 May, 2005 (it would be useful for you to remember what happened in the relation among those months); and will end until May 06

Each one of the lines are active, and each one is a step in the process.

Right now,you are in the 4 line: you have no serenity neither calm. You need to put away your faults during the time of this line, to allow her come closer to you. The time of this line will rule all November

In december would start line 5: face against any corrosive element between you and her; even if this action could be dangerous. You must do it, staying centered

In Feb 2006 will start line 6: you will need stay alert against seduction, or losing the direction of your life.

Best wishes

The context behind the question:

"Yi, what do you want to tell me about my dreams of me marrying (the woman in my life)?"

hmm... there is a perception of a REACTIVE bias here in that you will sit and let the IC 'tell you'.

Temporal focus is on future but is more into potentials than actuals and so more 'what could be' (yin) rather than 'what will be' (yang)

From the trigram levels this gives us a top line of yin. A middle line of yin. A bottom line indeterminate (IOW the question can be interpreted as covering facts just a much as values) - so we have a context covering issues of:

(A) devotion (000)
OR
(B) enlightenment (the new, sudden etc) (100)

(unless you can 'ground' the bottom line into a focus on fact or value and so give a more precise mapping ;-))

The next question attempts to flesh out the first and as such operates WITHIN the context set by the first):

..."Yi, are you telling me that there will come a time when (the woman in my life) will marry me?"

Again a reactive bias and so yin top.
Middle is now yang (WILL come a time rather than COULD come a time).
Bottom still indeterminate. SO we have:

(A) Lake
or
(B) Water

Since the second question is made WITHIN the context set by the first we can 'stack' the trigrams to give hexagrams describing the overall context 'driving' the questions:

Lake 'in' Earth - 45
Lake 'in' Thunder - 17
Water 'in' Earth - 08
Water 'in' Thunder - 03

Psychologically, Lake belongs to the realm of sensation seeking and replication (sexual, be it literal or metaphor the focus is on making a copy of self, being seen as a copy etc etc etc - overall focus is to replace existing context with copies of oneself and so replace the context with one's own)

Water belongs to the realm of security seeking and issues of rejection/rejecting/protection/protecting.

If we focus on the 'indeterminate' line of fact/values then the above questions form into a line pattern, bottom to top, of:

X00X10 to give the four possible hexagrams listed above.

(if you used four questions, each in the context of the previous, you would get a dodecagram and that is directly convertable into a hexagram with changing lines.)

I like all these interpretations!

I'd read/say it like this: Since your original question was "what do you want to tell me about this...", a big change is necessary in order to bring about an enduring relationship/marriage out of or from the emotional state of wanting or needing.

This, as I see it, is a message to transform your basic "need" for companionship/affection/sex into something more substantial and enduring. This same is true in regard to the specific woman you?re flirting with or engaging (58) - even if at this point only in your mind?s eye. You?ll have to look deeper into her than what need of yours she can satisfy.
