To move or not to move, that is the question

Hello. There's another reading I'd like to share. Thank you for reading, your insights are appreciated. :bows:
I was thinking about moving next year. There are many reasons for contemplating it, one of them is that it's hard for me to find work here.

What if I move to X next year? I got 58.4>60.
It seemed rather like a good reading at first until I checked my notes I have to this line. I received the line twice. 58.4 Sweet nearing. Sweet talk.
I got it as a reading for a week when I had a very difficult conversation with my boyfriend and when we were deciding if we stop seeing each other for a while or not. The second time I asked about trying online dating. In both cases it's about two choices/possibilities where none of them feels like a 100% win. Maybe the answer is more about the hard decision I'd need to make.
Mutual hexagram is 37 Family. To consider who belongs to my family and who does not. Where my family is?
Lower core is 38, being surrounded by opposing ideas on moving, or separation from my family, maybe. Upper core is 28, could be dealing with stress and learning to control the unstable situation in my life. One of the limitations (60) is if I find work there or not, and then the situation with my boyfriend.

What if I don't move next year? I got 11.3.4>54.
I can see 11.3 as many ups and downs, and what I read about 11.4 it can speak about having helpers but I really relate to Hilary's comment: “You're filled with the desire to express your power freely and be yourself through action, but you hesitate on the point of take-off and don't quite commit yourself to the air. Your existing connections fail to provide the help and support you need – so rather than staying home and going on the defensive, you'll need to extend yourself and explore elsewhere.” It's much how I feel right now btw and I can imagine to keep feeling the same way.
54 is a hexagram I often connect with my boyfriend and our relationship. 54 is also the mutual hexagram.

How'd be my life in X if I move? 14.1.3>64.
64 finding new roads in my life. 14.1 being a rookie in a new environment where one makes mistakes easily so it advises one to be careful. 14.3 doing things to help others. It could be about using one's assets like knowledge and experience. Mutual hexagram is 43, making a decision about how to navigate my life and commit to it.

How'd be my life if I stay home? 3 unchanging.
Difficulty in the beginning, some new possibilities and a fair amount of difficulties. Mutual hexagram is 23. Stripping away chaos?
Any thoughts? :bows:

Hello friend:
According to I Ching's rule, you should not make a prediction on one thing time and time again. I Ching show the information of future according to your subconsciousness mind. When you ask a thing for many times at the same time, you will not get the right answer.
So I just try making some comments on your first result:
What if I move to X next year? I got 58.4>60.
Hex 58.4 means that you are trying to move and get a happier life, but you are hesitating; Hex 60 shows that you want to move to a cheap place to live, a place where the house price is low. But the text tells you that if you just want to save money, it may not be a good choice(for example, you may not be able to find a job after moving to the new place).

Thank you, xuesongyu.
I'm still rather new to I Ching so I don't know all the "rules" yet and surely lack enough experience. Is it okay to ask a pair of "what if I do X" and "what if I don't do X" in the same time?
There was a week between the first two and the other two questions though. I like to take time to think about the answers I get, use different resources and go through different commentaries at first. I asked again because I thought that the two answers are somewhat incomparable. Maybe it's because I somewhat hesitate about that moving option... You're right about that. Thank you for your insight again. :bows:

"Is it okay to ask a pair of "what if I do X" and "what if I don't do X" in the same time? "
The answer is no. Why? Because when you ask a question to I Ching, it is just like you are asking to a teacher(in fact the "teacher" is your subconscious mind), and the I Ching will give you an answer. If you ask too many questions at the same time, the answer will not make sense. For example, if you ask "what if I do X" and "what if I don't do X" in the same time, and then I Ching tells you that "you will have good luck". In this case, how can you know you should "do X" or not?
"There was a week between the first two and the other two questions though."
That is ok. I Ching is also called "The book of changes". In the view of I Ching, everything in the world is changing, and the future can change too. So after a period of time, you can make a prediction once again in order to see if the future has changed.

Thank you, xuesongyu.
