To give some background on my situation: Almost three years ago I was seriously injured and ended up with major permanent damage that left me unable to walk properly. I am suing a hospital for negligence. The case is quite complicated and no agreeable settlement has been reached yet. The suit was filed over a year ago. The trial date is fast approaching (less than 3 weeks away now). I have an excellent medical malpractice trial lawyer who took my case on contingency. However, these things can always go either way. It is possible the hospital will wait until just before the start of the trial to make a significant offer to settle. It is also possible it will go to trial and I will be put through a few weeks of high stress testimony with an outcome of a win or loss depending on the how the jury finds. Needless to say, this is a very stressful time for me as without the compensation I feel it is likely I may lose my house. The financial situation from this has become unbearable. I'm only in my early 40's. With the money a settlement provides, it is possible that I could afford to receive some experimental treatments that are not covered by insurance but could help improve my quality of life tremendously.

I asked the question of how will the outcome of the lawsuit turn out, in my favor or not, and will it really be resolved in the next month or so as the trial date is upon me. Then I tossed and got hexagram 64 "Before Completion". Also, couldn't be just a coincidence that the same day I was at the grocery store and when I took a number at the deli, I got 64.

The way I read it (using Wilhelm and my intuition), it seems this hexagram is saying it could go either way. The following is what I wrote in my journal about the reading:

Things are in motion still. Changes are prepared for. Proceed with caution. Deliberation. Two opposite forces which cannot meet. However, if I were to arrive at the correct point of view myself, then everything works out well for me. Hold back and resist temptation to advance to quickly. Before completion attack brings misfortune. When time of transition arrives don't force it or disaster will result. A decisive step will be required (perhaps this is saying that I need to be prepared to accept an offer which is way lower than I expected and I should really consider it carefully before just rejecting the offer). Be strong in resolution (on the other hand maybe I don't need to accept an offer that is lower than I need, maybe this is saying I need to make sure I don't let on that I have any fears about going to trial). It will be a fierce battle to break them. If I allow my misgivings to be overcome and my true personality to shine through, than victory will be won and there will be a rebirth from the misery of the old. If victory is one, don't get too drunk on one's own prosperity. Confidence is good, but not over confidence. The hexagram could signify the end finally to the chaos.

So all of that being said, I have to wonder how much of the reading is actually advice to me personally, or if it just giving me a reading for my lawyer. At this point in the lawsuit, the lawyer is the one who is in control of the situation. The lawyer is the one making decisions, filing motions with the court, and ultimately negotiating with the defense lawyer. I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this and what you think about getting this hexagram as the answer in relation to lawsuit questions.

Thanks for reading!

I should also add some more background on the reading/follow up readings. Before I tossed the 64, which was about a month ago, I asked a somewhat vague question on the lawsuit to find out what the status of the progress on it was and got 17, "Following". At that point I felt it was telling me that I basically need to trust my lawyer and let everything fall into place. When I tossed again and got the 64, it was because the lawyer had updated me to a motion he needed to file with the court regarding the addition of an added defendant to the case. Since tossing the 64, I have asked twice if anything has changed or there is any significant changes to the last time I asked the question regarding the outcome of the lawsuit. I got 44, "Coming To Meet" about 2 weeks ago. This hexagram has a particularly personal karmic meaning relating to my when my husband and I first met. I took it to mean that the outcome of the lawsuit, even the injuries I have, go all the way back to when I first met my husband (at which time I had tossed 44). At the same time, I felt it was telling me there are probably things happening behind the scenes that are out of my control regarding the hospital's lawyers etc and that I should stop worrying. Needless to say, I couldn't control my anxiety about this matter and again tossed last night and got 4 "Youthful Folly". I strongly feel that is simply to tell me that I need to stop asking the question because I am going to muddy up my own mind if I don't stop. This lead me to believe that I need to return to studying my original interpretation of 64 because that was the first time I asked about the actual outcome of the lawsuit in the specific way I did. That and the fact that the fact I also got 64 at the deli of the grocery store that same day has returned me to study 64.

It isn't finished yet.
The case hasn't been heard and decided yet, or an offer made. I don't think it is saying anything more.

OK, but as a divination tool, if the answer, as you imply, is basically that it could go either way, then am I to assume that attempting divination in the matter is useless? Sorry if I am taking your interpretation too literally, but it seems I already know it could go either way, so why consult the iChing? I appreciate your reply and hope you can help me further understand.
