I have had really lousy luck for the past 4 years and more. Always had terrible taste in men, and got really badly hurt, I never married or had children. Mum who is the only living member of immediate family I have left was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and I left my job, she is living with me so I can take care of her. And my social life is in the dumps. It was so hard to find a question to ask or how to place the question for the Iching - so I decide to go with what is most important to me right now -here goes:

How and where do I start setting my life right - in the direction that would hopefully lead me to a happier place?

Reading: 19,2 - 24

I study the Iching but its extremely difficult to me - so I appreciate your advice.

Is this a line that speaks about my inner world - to have self confidence about everything and things will find their own way to me? :duh:

so appreciate any insights.

Wow I really loved your post, too me its almost like a short story,

My mother died of a brain tumour at the age of 52, so i do understand on that level, this was almost 20 years ago, there are advances in medicine and technology since then which is encouraging.

The line reflects to me you are a person that is unselfish, in a way even modest.
You are doing an exceptional thing, and the line reflects to me at least you will be rewarded.
I have no idea how, its a very positive result.

The oracle gives us advice in a way we need it most, for example i do many readings for my business, when my business is doing well i tend to get answers that are lets say grounding.
When it is not doing well, i get answers that are encouraging.

I believe there maybe something really positive for you around the corner.
You just cannot see it yet.

You must be a pretty amazing person to even take this on in the first place.

How do I start setting my life right?

19.2 > 24
Have confidence about everything and things will find their own way to you.

I think you've interpreted this line beautifully!
Looking at the sequence, 19 appears to be describing how we are after we have survived some sort of difficult experience (18). In your case I see it as referring to how you have had so much of your old life wiped out and now you must rebuild but you have the advantage of having learned and can now apply what you have learned - thus 19, bringing what you have learned into the world.
24. Return describes how we go out into the world - to and fro goes the way - and then we must return home, in your case, after so many experiences, returning to your inner world to strengthen and regroup.
All together I think you are being encouraged that you have an opportunity now to start fresh and create your life more deliberately. 24. with it's emphasis on returning home can be encouraging you that taking on the care of your mother is right, you needn't feel there's some greater work or purpose you're supposed to be doing or that somehow life is passing you by. Indeed, 19.2 could be saying you have a chance now to learn so much from being with your mother.
Best wishes to you!

Thanks Rosada - your reply gave me so much insight -and peace of mind, I have so many negative people around me telling me otherwise, and I just know deep inside that this is what I am meant to do for the time.

Thanks so much Steve, I am so sorry to hear about your mum. I really felt I needed to this for her, she has lost so much (my dad and brother both died of cancer) and I was the only one she had left. And she gives me so much also om her own way.

19.2 I think is an auspicious line, it seems strange in relation to your situation however I think there is something positive sitting somewhere.

I wish you well

I so appreciate your answers and well wishes Rosada and Steve, its really lonely, and going through the other shared readings as well, having 'friends' in tough situations also, makes me feel such a huge connection to that something bigger. And thats what keeps me strong <3 :)

19.2 to 24 Comments

Iching reading is usually good only for the prediction of a single issue within a time loop (domain). When a broad and general question is the query, the reading usually end up reporting a description of your current situation than providing any answers.

In order to define a narrower question, one needs to define a yongshen (English: motivator). Each iching reading has six lines (Chinese: yao). The "relative term" applies to the five terms such as

Hex 19 Approach (Lin)
19.6 child gui water you metal (ying line)
19.5 wife/wealth gui water hai water (guest line: ying line)
19.4 brother (sibling) gui water chou water (ying line)
19.3 brother (sibling) ding fire chou earth (ying line)
19.2 officer ding fire mao wood (yang line: host line) - change line
19.1 parent ding fire si fire (yang line)

Your time domain (time of the reading) is represented by a number composing of a heavenly stem and the earthly branches

Year 2018: Mou earth xu earth (hollow earthly branches: chen earth, si fire)
Month June: Ding fire si fire (hollow earthly branches: zi water chou earth)
Day 5th: Mou earth chen earth (hollow earthly branches: xu earth, hai water)
Hour: 21:23 p.m.: Gui water Hai water (hollow earthly branches: zi water chou earth)

If we take an intelligence guess, the issue for the future may be the career, romance (partner) or illness situation of your mother.

In your reading, 19.2 officer ding fire mao wood (yang line: host line) - change line.
Six line method decodes officer as illness, career and also male species for partner. Since 19.2 is the host line, this line will tell you something if one can decode the mystery in the hexagrams.

19.2 officer line mao wood (#4) changes into 24.2 officer line yin wood (#3). In addition, the officer line is moving backwards by one step (#4 to #3).

If this concerns career, there is at present certain set back. 19.1 parent ding fire si fire (yang line) represents documents, offers of employment etc. Since it is si fire and si fire is year void (hollow earthly branches), but also the month commander because month is si fire, supported by the month. There is hope this month, but luck is not that great this year.

If this concerns male friends with the intent of future potential partner, the officer took a step back and yin wood is the movement star in the pair of hexagram. The male has left or is backing off.

19.5 wife/wealth gui water hai water (guest line: ying line). This is the guest line with another female or wealth line in it. For financial matter such as money, the wealth line hai water is day void because hai water is the hollow earthly branches under the day of the reading. Your hour of the reading is hai water. You are thinking about (1) money because everyone needs money at time of crisis; (2) another female who may be connected to the male you have in mind.

We stopped for a moment and evaluate the change hexagram 24. The parameters are

24.6 child gui water you metal (ying line) - same as 19.6
24.5 wife/wealth gui water hai water (guest line: ying line) same as 19.5
24.4 brother (sibling) gui water chou water (ying line) same as 19.4; guest line

24.3 brother geng metal chen earth (ying line)
24.2 officer geng metal yin wood (ying line); movement star
24.1 wealth/wife gene metal zi water (yang line); host line

If we zoom into line 24.5 wealth/wife line, the parameters are the same as 19.5.

For relationship analysis, this line 24.5 wife/wealth gui water hai water (guest line: ying line) same as 19.5, is coupled to 24.2 officer geng metal yin wood (ying line); movement star. For the female in question, the officer line is coupled to the female. This female is not you. Regardless, the male is going to be associated with this female for good or for other reasons.

Technically no romance in the work for the immediate future.

19.1 parent may mean your mother si fire. Under the year, it is year void. Condition is not that great in the entire year. However, the June month is si fire and she is OK at present.

19.4 brother (sibling) gui water chou water (ying line) - same as 24.4
19.3 brother (sibling) ding fire chou earth (ying line)

Both line are third parties. Line 19.4 and also 24.4 refers to help from outside the family. They are medical staff or friends. Since chou earth is month void from now to Dec 4 2018, things only change after that date. The help is not there or not very useful.

24.4 brother (sibling) gui water chou water (ying line) same as 19.4; guest line
is coupled to 24.1 wealth/wife gene metal zi water (yang line); host line

This means money and funding spent on getting help does not generate any piece of mind because the zi water and chou earth are month void until early December.

Hexagram 24 means returning. Things will return to normal after a period of setback. Hexagram 19 is not good for the month of September only.

Hex 19 is composed of upper trigram Kun earth and lower trigram Tui metal
Hex 24 is composed of upper trigram Kun earth (stationary trigram - line 4 - 6) and lower trigram zhen wood (transformed trigram - line 1-3). In this case, the transformed trigram wood suppresses the stationary trigram for purposes of predicting outcome of events and issues.

There will be delay in (a) finding a person as a suitable partner; (b) closing deals; (c) seeking appointments; (d) seeking wealth.

It is good for family stability at present, and health condition can improve.

The pair of hexagrams in the reading can be computed into a BaGui diagram comprising of
1. House of kan water: hexagram 47 Oppression (Chi downward direction)
2. House of kun earth: hexagram 16 enthusiasm (Chi pull apart)
3. House of zhen wood, hexagram 24 returning (Chi downward direction)
4. House of sun wood: hexagram 46 pushing upward (Chi downward direction)
5. House of Central: hexagram 24 returning. (Chi come together)
6. House of chien metal: Hexagram 11 peace (Chi come together)
7. House of Tui metal: hexagram 54 marrying maiden (Chi pull apart)
8. House of Ken earth: hexagram 15 modesty (Chi come together)
9. House of Li fire; Hexagram 36 Darkening of the Light. (Chi come together)

What you could find out depends on the question?

Without that question, one can take another guess.
For two cents worth opinion:

Be careful with investment and finance - this is from the house of 4 sun wood. The chi is point downwards, dropping prices in investment. It will take time to rebounce.

For potential male partner, the answer is in the house of 3 zhen wood with the kun earth sitting in it. The hexagram is 24. The male has not appeared yet. At present, no candidate and taker.

For job seeking, the answer is in the house of 6 chien metal: Hexagram 11 peace (Chi come together). Kun earth sits in this house. If you do not have a job, this means that you have not find an appointment yet.

The future sits in the house of 9. Your dreams and hopes will not come true at the present moment. You feel that you sit alone in darkness, but you have to realize you have skills, and ability, but not the timing at present. The moment will come when the time loop changes. It will be almost end of the year before things change.

I would not recommend worrying about the future. Returning means thing will change with time.

The house of 5 is hex 24 returning. Things will return to normal with time.

Long Yi I cannot thank you enough, everything, everything you wrote is absolutely true. Man that was in my life found a rich girl, without a word he left and got engaged to her. I knew though that he was interested in money all along, so my fault. And I need time to recover so doubtful I will be interested in anyone anytime soon.
Money I am worried about, so no risk taking in the near future, I own a 50 year old house which constantly needs expensive repairs, so I am at a huge mess there also. No job, and unemployment here in Cyprus is very bad.

My spirits lifted when you said for now Mum is Ok, thats my foremost and most important concern at the moment.
Everything else I know I can battle. I became very strong while dealing with the death of a sibling and a parent. It hurt so much but in the end strength came.

I cannot thank you enough - I so appreciate your reply.
