Dear all

Bad 2012. I kind of have the feeling 2013 will be as bad. The great malefic will be against me another year!

I have thrown my readings for 2013.
I am a still a bad I-ching reader and would appreciate you correcting me/ giving me your opinion about my readings.

General reading: 44.5 to 50. Advice: hasten yourself slowly, paying attention to details.
Things are underway but you are not even halfway there. You are not getting there this year. (yay! another year!)

Love reading: 54.1.4.5.6 to 59. Wow a lot of moving lines. Pretty much the same meaning to me: it's too early to make plans + you are not getting there yet either.Maybe something happens but like later in the year and there's little game in the field. Worries me slightly 54.1 speaking about a secret relationship, because I really like this one guy that really likes me back but has got a girlfriend and they live together.
(yay! another year!)

Work reading: 3.5 to 24. Am i changing jobs? I kind of read here that I will start a new job closer to my abilities and interests, although it won't be the one I will keep for long. I am moving closer to myself (which also means: going back to my path).
(tentative yay?)

Thanks for your insight!

Dear urbansparrow,

I don't do yearly readings because I do not believe that this sort of reading can actually set the tone for the whole year. Others might have a different opinion and decide to tackle this as your reading for the year 2013.

But, in my view, the IChing is talking to you right now. For instance, the reading about your love life is showing already the position you are in, isn't it? Your love interest has got a girlfriend, so you are in a secondary position, with little power and no recognition, things are not the way you want them to be because you are not in a position to choose. All changing lines are showing different aspects of this situation, I don't think that you should read this as sequence, with some sort of time frame.

I truly believe that it would be really good for you if you could use all the information and advice contained in your "yearly" readings to improve your life now, to position yourself for a better year.

Take care :bows:

Thank you for your answer, which made me think.
However I am more puzzled than before. I have never received 59 as an answer (it has been only two years casting the Iching) and therefore have no direct relationship to it (unlike some others I keep getting and now I understand better). Is it maybe connected to the 24 I got three times asking about him, (moving from 19.2)? Or about (gently) breaking the bound?

Have a great start of the year and :hug:

Dear urbansparrow,

Love reading: 54.1.4.5.6 to 59.

I usually identify two different aspects in Hex 59, when doing my own readings. One is that I am holding negative thoughts, fears, bad feelings and I need to let them go, I need to "dissolve" them.
Wilhelm says: "A man's vital energy is dammed up within him, gentleness serves to break up and dissolve the blockage".
So, you have to free yourself from those obstacles within you, the negative emotions are hindering the positive energy in your life.

Another aspect of 59 is that sometimes you experience a sense that you don't know where you stand in life, you feel like things are a little bit "scattered around", if that makes sense to you.
Hilary says: "What flows has left its normal channels and dispersed, releasing its energy. Looking out over the flood, the old boundaries are submerged or swept away. You can see for miles, and you can’t see where you are".

Hope that helps, all the best for you :bows:

Hello,

The response to your general question re. the year ahead is very auspicious. Hex 50-potential Hex is excellent.

44.5
Using osier to enwrap melons.
Containing composition.
Possessing tumbling originating from heaven.

On the sentimental side, I'd say tread carefully cos though you could experience 'Supreme burgeoning' in line 5, what ensues would be disappointing 'A woman receives a basket without substance'

With regaard to work, you have another positive message from the Sage, reassuring you that you're on the right path and there'll be a period of 'harvesting'.

3.5
Sprouting one's juice.
The small. Trial, significant.
The great. Trial pitfall.

Comments: Sprouting one's juice.
Sprouting: not yet shining indeed.

Hex 24 implies a return, as in correcting onself/the return of someone/previous situation.
Do consult Sacred Texts-Legge. IMO Hex 59 describes a situation where the cobwebs are literally cleared away - translations/versions differ. My book refers to H59 as Dispersing "The situation described by this Hexagram is characterized by dissolving obstacles, illusions or misunderstandings, like clouds clearing away."
The IC's counsel may provide greater clarity in a few days ... the Aha moment ;)

All the best, stay positive !

Re 59, I often think of it as a sea breeze (wind above water) and that it is counselling an attitude of softening, of moving around obstacles rather than confronting anything. If you can adopt that sense of breeziness, or blitheness, and gentleness, I think the blockages in 54 might disperse too, better than you'd imagine (it's worked for me)! Good luck.

Kudos and thanks for your valuable comments.
I had initially thought 59 was carrying a more negative message.
Have a great start of 2013!

Hi all

Just to give a feedback on your readings, in particular about 54 to 59.
Its nature has already manifested itself.
In this particular case, the guy is basically offering me to be his lover from time to time. 54.1 and 54.6. He s not planning on leaving his girlfriend, whom he said "to love, but if she was walking inside the bar, seeing us together he would not try to chase".
What a douche. :duh:
In this context, I can also see hexagram 24, we always go back to square one.

I asked about him today and I got a beautiful 23 .
:brickwall: . I am an idiot and always fall for these guys. :duh:

Thank you all.

Letting go is easier when you see it all around you, in nature. It is the way, it is what it is. It seems everything we grab onto sooner or later slips away, "like castles in the sand, slip into the sea, eventually." Jimi Hendrix

But lets not forget the son in 54.1,
who accompanies such an untimely loss.
She may have lost her prince,
but great potential and life lives.

Meng's reply is so inspiring... I'm on a more prosaic note...

Don't say you always attractbthese guys, please! If you do so, you'll keep attracting them!

What is it in them that attracts you? What is it that you like in those relationships? What kind of woman are you when you are with them? Are you willing to be a different kind of woman?

Same questions I am asking myself!!!

Hello,

Whatever positive qualities atract you to that guy can also be found in a decent straightforward partner/boyfriend who'll treat you the way you deserve to be treated .. in an exclusive relationship. So he claims if you were at a bar and his chick walked in he wouldn't make excuses and go off with her or whatever. I reckon he juust wants to pick another fkower, a part-time treat ...keep telling yourself you deserve better ... believe it, feel it, look it, project it outwardly ! How disrespecful to admit he just wants an extra/occasional treat. It would be worse to intentionally mislead you, by being honest he does have the minimum of respect and consideration for you ... WHICH PROVES YOU DESERVE SO MUCH MORE ... BETTER.

Hex 23 - Stripping
"The situation described in this Hexagram is characterized by strpping away a wornout or obsolete form of presentaion, cutting away the inessential"- The message from the Sage concerns you.

Thanks meng. and thanks deusa.
It's not easy. I happen to be a philologist, and so is he. You shouldn't look at omens, or signs- everything we did together was so meaningful. Sometimes wrong. Sometimes very right. We received a ticked for drinking in the park together. two day ago he was waiting for me in the bar, a book in his hands. It was the same book: "Austerlitz", by Sebald. We were reading the same page.

Deusa, I do not know about your life, but I can tell you I am looking for the impossible. I am an Uranian Taurus. I need stability and liberty. I want no conventional life or love. I send mixed signals. I think that's the clue. Sending mixed signals.

Then I asked the I ching, how could I let him go. And received 41.4 to 38. I think (correct me if I am wrong) I need to talk to him and tell me why he let me down. It won't change much but it's better than nothing. Please correct me if I am wrong.

And finally I asked "HOW CAN I ATTRACT PEOPLE WHO ARE IN HARMONY WITH WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR?" and got 10.2 to 25. It talks again, to me, about open relationships, liberty, but with an open heart and mind. The risk of being let down (yet to let yourself down ) is always there.

let peace be with you in this new year, and let you find what you need!
