Right Willow Fox, astonishing. He would be gutted. Well, that's encouraging. And the Hex 13? Are we pals -- or what? Fellowship with men isn't entirely what I had in mind to be honest, unless the definition has changed recently.
Something is changing in this relationship, that I can feel -- which is one reason I asked about the move for employment, more or less as a barometer, because I'm not sure where we're going now, and that might be an indicator. If I left here for different employment I would have resolved within myself that it is worthwhile, so I was actually joking suggesting I might be the one in tears. I'd have to be well past that point for the move to have the purpose it would need as it's a rather extreme situation to go into for a job.
The second reason I referred the casting to here is that I was surprised by it. If he had a reaction, I wouldn't have expected one that strong but, then again, I think there's something afoot and I'm just seeing the "edges" so far. I should probably say, ALL of the readings I've done about him lately are surprising and would indicate a major change in his view of our connection. But I don't see that in our personal communication, which is puzzling.
I muse from time to time on whether the Yi would give information about someone else's thoughts. Why wouldn't we have access to that vibration -- when you think how many factors a casting can rely upon, including other's ideas, attitudes, thoughts and decisions. If we can only divine about ourselves, that's a fairly limited oracle isn't it? I realise I've just popped the lid off the worm can here -- but at the heart of it, why wouldn't we have a resonant connection with people close and "sense" their state of mind [in sutble ways we can't define perhaps] and be able to enquire about it?
It is somewhat "tongue in cheek" to say, are those my tears, as I did ask about him. I'm assuming in that case, the moving line can't be about me -- it shouldn't be anyway. But then, considering what this line says, I'm a bit incredulous, yes, if he suddenly turns up with uncontrolled emotion, as bottled up as this man has been. So I want to know that there isn't some esoteric meaning for the line that I'm missing either.
As already said, I've been fairly incredulous on all the readings I've gotten lately about him. Rather unbelievable that this has taken a new turn. Meanwhile, I wanted some confirmation that I'm reading these lines correctly and not exaggerating his potential reaction either. And, I'd like to know that Hex 13 isn't just a large wonderful group hug or something, because that's not what I'm talking about either. Also, if the mourning is mine then -- what is Hex 13 supposed to be?
I think the preferred methods of phrasing questions in relation to someone else's thoughts is relatively pervasive, most everyone who has given an opinion on this seems to think you can't "intrude" in somebody else's mental domain -- so I wasn't particularly referring to you Trojan or some philosophy that I imagine you have. You said sometimes it works. I think it does too. And I am questioning why it's so pervasive and somewhat frowned upon. Why we assume it isn't so effective.
And, sometimes I really resonate with the readings I get -- and sometimes I don't. My instincts can be great, or just awful. Sometimes other's interpretations don't resonate either and then it comes down to seeing what happens and try to discover which castings and interpretations did hold the truth up to the light. It's a learning process, that's certain.
Trojan, you are right about the consensus business. It's not possible to obtain, nor desirable, and several people -- I think Gato and Peter in particular, readily pointed to the fallacy too when I cast about trying to straighten out a misunderstanding and the possibility of sending an apologetic letter. If the Yi were a "sport" it would be a really personal one.
Gato, I get your meaning of course to do with the sincerity needed to consult and have a meaningful answer. What about expectations? It may seem a fundamental or academic discussion, but in your experience what is better -- to keep your agenda in mind, or no particular expectations. As Trojan was saying, the Yi may answer something you didn't ask. Which implies -- no expectations. Or maybe it doesn't matter -- the Yi will say what it wants to regardless of what you are thinking you'd like to know.

Second casting: What's the best thing that I can do in this relationship? The result is Hex 45, judgement. Gathering together with like-minded people is one element that comes to mind, but that can denote a myriad of places and conditions, including the one I'm in. Again, this is a situation requiring a leader as well. AAaaaah, I seem to be going in circles.
I compose a question as a focal point, and when I'm casting I try to get as a clear a mental image of the situation I'm enquiring about as I possibly can. There is definitely a quality to me about the casting process and whether it feels "legitimate" or not. If it's not solid I might abandon the question, the casting, or both, and start over again later on. There really is a conversational quality Gato, definitely, when you get the feeling you're in synchronisation with the Yi. Amazing, isn't it? I've heard of people casting coins with no question in mind, or in a "neutral" state about a question. I think I can't do it. I don't know how. Even when I used the "conversational" method you were talking about I still felt like my side of the discussion was question, question, question. Maybe as with friends, mentors, there are different types of conversations with the Yi as well.
