Good morning,
well, I took a big risk and wrote to my crush telling him how I feel for him...I knew there was mutual attraction but wasn't sure he felt anything beyond that (as I do). He hasn't responded yet and that's okay but while I wait to see what happens next, I did ask a few questions...
I asked how is feeling about what I wrote? 31.2.4-->48
I looked at this is he is unsure what to think of it or that he is unmoved by it in anyway?
also, How will what I wrote effect things between us? 26.6--->11
this seems to confirm to me that opening up about what I felt was the right thing to do and it will resolve any doubts he may have had about me. Looks to be a good omen, i think
I also asked "what are his intentions towards me now that he knows how i feel?" 28.2--->31. This again looks like a good omen, but have not heard anything back yet...
Please show a picture of what is happening between us now? 45.2.3.4--->48
this reading is the one that gave me the most trouble since it gave contradicting lines. Line 2 and 4 is about people being natural and coming together but line 3 is warning "nothing that would further" :confused:

lastely I asked for myself, "what should I do now in regards to the situation?" 3.2--->60
this seems kind of negative but I'm thinking I should interpret this as what i can do is limited, so I should just wait to be wooed?

overall, I am hoping this situation all looks favorable but since I havent had a response from him yet, I don't know. Anyone have experiences with these lines? especially 3.2 and 45.3? :bows:

Some Ideas.....

Hi Alev, some ideas on what this could mean :D

"what should I do now in regards to the situation?" difficulties & limitation

3.2
Difficulties pile up. Horse and wagon part. He is not a robber; He wants to woo when the time comes. The maiden is chaste, She does not pledge herself. Ten years--then she pledges herself
I think that you are the one pursuing in this line- doing the wooing as you have approached him with your feelings. I think this could possibley be saying your love interest is not ready to give himself just yet (I got this also from your 31.2.4--48) but he will do if/when he is ready- so you should possibley wait for now & be comfortable with your current limitations within the situation (60). His intentions towards you look to me like he is interested (28.2--->31.) A renewel taking place- It looks positive to me. The only way you can know for sure is if he replies/approaches :D (an exciting time for you!)

To me this looks like your doing the right thing by waiting as hex 3 itself says not to undertake anything right now & to seek further help/guidance.

You might want to ask the I-ching to clarify if waiting is the best thing todo- or whether you need to take a further step right now. if you feel it is yourself? Also i was thinking (aside from the yi) you've only just shared your feelings with him (if I understood that correctly) so it might be a good idea to wait anyway until he gets back to you, space and time to think things over....

How will what I wrote effect things between us? 26.6--->11
One attains the way of heaven. Success. The time of obstruction is past. The energy long dammed up by inhibition forces its way out and achieves great success.
what you wrote has allowed you to express what you've been hanging onto for a while- you got all the pent up feelings out and from this it could achieve something positive for you. It looks good from where i'm sitting. It looks like what you did will help achieve Peace/harmony between you. I imagine letting those feelings out has done that anyway. 11 says that the great is approaching- so i think good things could be coming from this.

Hope this was useful :D

Goodluck :hug:

45.2.3.4--->48

I missed this one!! (full of cold haha my eyes/nose streaming)

Please show a picture of what is happening between us now?
45.2.3.4--->48 Gathering together & the well.

I've not had much experience with this- so you're getting a very good guess from me ;) :rofl:

Your gathering together, I think its showing that it was a good idea to do what you did in feeling drawn, approaching him and expressing yourself- as you said yourself. I think the lines are showing a little story. Line two says you were/felt drawn to approach him, what you did was natural and blameless and you made an offering of your feelings. The 3rd line points to you feeling an "outsider" to him, you feel out in the cold but you've approached him with your feelings in order to gain access to him, it was slightly humiliating to do this? (I can't make my mind up if thats you or thats him that feels outside the group) Line 4 talks about great good fortune- it looks to me like your endeavour could be successful as it says you've been sincere and not worked just to gain any advantage from him- it wasn't selfish or self centered- you've thought about you both in this- that is approached in the right way.

Only time will tell now I guess, please let us know what happens!! :D

Thank you for your thoughts! :)
This is a very exciting time for me, although a tad anxious as well as I chew on my nails and wonder what on Earth is he thinking about this!
reviewing my readings again and what you wrote I think one thing for sure I am confident about is that I believe now I did the right thing by coming out with my feelings and no matter the outcome I have no reason to regret it...

that being said, I am now more confused than ever about line 3.2! I wasn't looking at it as me being the one doing the wooer, but that is a possiblity because i am the one who reached out (in a modest way i think) But still, I am having a hard time interpreting the advice in that line given the context of my questions of What should I do now regarding the situation? I got the idea to just wait and do nothing based on this comment I found on the line:

"Using the image of a betrothed girl who remains true to her lover in face of
grave conflicts, the hexagram gives counsel for a special situation. When in
times of difficulty a hindrance is encountered and unexpected relief is offered
from a source unrelated to us, we must be careful and not take upon
ourselves any obligations entailed by such help; otherwise our freedom of
decision is impaired. If we bide our time, things will quiet down again, and
we shall attain what we have hoped for."

I have no idea what the grave conflicts may be, so they must be on his end not mine, i guess??

oh....yes, I am undecided about the subject of line 45.3 as well...I don't really feel humiliated by what I said BUT i certainly feel like an outsider at the moment waiting to see the outcome of this!

I hope you feel better soon!

Alev, I had a good guess at your reading, I think only you know yourself if you've done the right thing. Also I'm not sure what to say further, I wish I could come up with more hmm well you'll know when time has passed- if he replies etc and how it plays out. At least then you'll know for certain what these lines mean and gain a better understanding for future readings!

Maybe you should see what someone else thinks/replies to your thread/question....

Thanks about the cold ;)

I think thats what the line means you feel like an outsider waiting- slight humilation could be you feeling a slight embarrassment in expressing your feelings.

I'm off for tonight, going to sleep I think. Hopefully you'll get some more replies soon! Or even a reply from him hahaha keeping my fingers/toes crossed for you! :D

Take care!!!!

Alev, I had a good guess at your reading, I think only you know yourself if you've done the right thing. "

I know, I appreciate your taking the time to offer your opinion :bows:
The reason I am confident I did the right thing was because when I reviewed my 26.6-->11 reading, you had copied a piece of it in your response and it really resonated with me!
it was this:
"The energy long dammed up by inhibition
forces its way out and achieves great success."

what that "great success" is is the unknown element at this time...could mean a great relationship or could simply mean a release of pent up energy for me or a million other things but whatever it is, seems it will be good for me :)

***update***


well, I never received a reply from this guy since I professed my feelings to him :( and I have not attempted any further contact on my part.
However, I will be seeing him (for the first time since I revealed my feelings) at a formal dinner this week. I am nervous and know I am going to be blushing like crazy when I see him but it is what it is.
To help myself prepare emotionally, I did 2 readings asking :
"how can I expect him to behave or relate towards me at dinner?" 64.4--->4
this seems like a strange response but maybe my question itself was strange?! there actually seems like a lot going on in this line from shock and discipline to war and rewards, I'm not quite sure what the message here is. I can't decide if shows friendly intentions or if it shows someone dealing with an enemy (me??? :()
and hex 4 telling me I am foolish to think he would even go out of his way to react to me...?

I also asked "How should I behave towards him given the situation?" 25.2.3.5.6--->34
I understand line 2 and 5, don't have any expectations, just act naturally and things will be okay
I have received line 3 in the past when a love partner of mine was "stolen" from me by another woman so I hope this doesnt mean that is going to happen here! any other possible interpretation on this line?
also not sure on line 6, the line says innocent action brings misfortune but advises to go with the flow and not do anything, isn't that an innocent thing to do?
hex 34, follow established order but what would that be. Perhaps follow his lead and respond accordingly?

maybe I am overthinking all this, but I am so nervous!

"how can I expect him to behave or relate towards me at dinner?" 64.4--->4
Perhaps this is saying something like rather than having expectations of him, what are your expectations for how you behave and relate to him?

"How should I behave towards him given the situation?" 25.2.3.5.6--->34
25.2 - Take things how they come - no expectations, no agendas
25.3 - Look at how you are behaving....do you really need to react with your raw emotions in the driving seat?
25.5 - It's a tough time but try to move beyond the rawness. Curl up inside and give yourself a big cuddle and let the storm blow itself out.
25.6 - All good things come to those who wait.

Realising how to be strong within will bring about an understanding of teh right way for you to behave in this situation.

Thank you my key!
I feel much better today having slept on the issue. Yesterday, I had completely forgotten about the dinner until I received the reminder evite and immediately began to panic!
I also realize that even if I intended to be an ice queen and ignore him, I could never do it, one look at him and I melt! So I will be what I am and behave the way he inspires me to behave, it cannot be any other way :)
I ching aside though, I do intend to employ the fail proof,age old feminine tactic used by women the world over in situations just like this...I am going to make sure I am dressed to kill and look sexy as hell!
