Hi folks!

I want to make a clean break and move out to another city, closer to my sister who is also my best friend. Hex 58 uc

Some background
I am saving up to move out by the beginning of next year. Right now I am living with my dad in my birth town, after a nasty breakup with my long term ex partner. My time with my dad has been a time for me to recuperate, heal and make new plans for the future. I never really felt at home in my hometown, I stayed here because of my ex and that chapter is closed now. The only thing that is holding me back is my job. I have been on the lookout for an appartment in my hometown, because I feel restless in my dads house. However something keeps holding me back, I start feeling blocked when I think about starting over in my home town. I am slowly starting to realize that I have more options if I dare to think bigger. If I moved to the city where my sister lives I would have to find a new job, make new friends... but I already know alot of people through my sister there, who would welcome me with open arms. When I think about my other option, staying here, I just don't feel any enthousiasm. I want to know if I am ready for a change of this magnitude, as I have been going to so many (positive) changes already in the last few years. It's nice to feel like I am going forward, but this is a big one. I am still contemplating, going backward and forward. So maybe the Yi will give me some clarity.

Hope this all makes sense as I am writing this just before leaving for work. I just had to get out of my system :) Any insights would be much appreciated. Will consider the reading for myself and post my own interpretation later today :bows:

Were you asking a question or just asking the ic to comment? Anyway, 58. seems to me to be saying there's a lot of positive thought and discussion going on.

I think this describes 58uc perfectly

...but you didn't say exactly what the question was. Anyway if this were my answer I'd feel it was pointing out that expansive joyous feeling of having people to really connect to. Hexagram 58 says the power of joy in communication with congenial others is so powerful it makes a person forget their troubles and it makes even difficult tasks seem easy.


Maybe finding a job won't seem such a big hurdle when you have your sister around, maybe everything will just feel easier.

I do believe hexagram 58 really is the spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down. I always notice if I have to do anything I'm scared of or don't like having someone there to chat to makes me barely notice the pain or worry.


Sounds like a good idea to me.

Hi Rosada, Trojan

I tried to formulate a decent question but I kept arriving at 'what if' questions... they didn't sit right with me. I have been 'what iffing' long enough ;) It felt more empowering to ask the Yi to comment on my intention :)

What I gathered from hex 58
Thus the superior man joins with his friends For discussion and practice.
Moving out closer to my sister and other good folks I've met through my sis.

A lake evaporates upward and thus gradually dries up; but when two lakes are joined they do not dry up so readily, for one replenishes the other.
Could two sisters joining together also be represented as two lakes I wonder? A joyous connection with my sister and other people.

It becomes so only through stimulating intercourse with congenial friends with whom one holds discussion and practices application of the truths of life.
Me and my sis talk at least three times a week over the phone, often for a long time too. We certainly talk an awful lot :rofl:

Yes good juju indeed. Will definitely follow up on this reading.
