Hello all,
It has been some time since I last posted here... and as 2012 dawns I have quiet a few questions brewing. I have what I believe is a (serious) lull in income. Its been two months and the state support says they wont review my case for another 6 weeks. At that point I'm leaving the country (and tehrefore legally cant receive unemployment support). So things are not ideal in this new year.

So I am trying to find more income, constantly sending out resumes, posting on job boards, telling everyone I know that I'm looking. I'm also needing to find a subletter / tenant for my apartment for the 5-month trip I'm taking. That is also a blank screen. I asked I asked the Yi "what could help me?" Thinking only of the income and sublet issues. The Yi responded : 23.2.5.6>29
Separation > Abysmal
I gather the course of those lines are that there is great loss but in the end there will be recognition of my virtue. (Thanks but uhm, is that *compensated*, monetary recognition? Just had to ask).

However -- I am wondering if the Yi answered the question. It doesnt say what can help me, it doesnt suggest anything as far as I can tell.

What I see it applying to is my personal romantic life, where I am separated from my boyfriend (to whom i will be flying to spend those 5 mos, that is what the trip is about) but i'm making huge sacrifices to do so. I've wanted a relationship and family for about 8 years now and have had that "blank slate" in that area, until last year when we met. He is very serious and wants a family but we have serious issues of citizenship and relocation (he doesnt speak English) and I have issues moving in with his "family" as I'm an American independent woman...living with a man is one thing but with others in his family is just not the way our culture raises us.

So I am wondering if this separation -> abysmal is saying something about the relationship. Is it saying the separation will make things worse or that when I get there (when separation "ends") that the issues will be worse? (I dont see 29 as a positive hexagram).

I only give all teh details in case that sheds more light on the reading for you experts...

Have a peaceful night.
-E.

Hello Elizabeth,

I have some ideas here. I wonder if 29 here is more of a background to your situation. Sounds more like where you are now. I don't think 29 is all that terrible anyway. Just means you will have to go with the flow, that you are dealing with an unfamiliar situation, and need to maneuver through it like a stream of water. 23 line 1 shows that the support you are used to has been damaged, and has affected your ability to rest and relax. Line 5 suggests to follow some female friends or associates out of this trouble. So, perhaps get networking with some more ladies, or start going out for more girls nights. I just had this line come of for me in a reading, and it was referring to a female friend of mine who offered me work with her! Line 6 shows things resolving, and speaks about "a large fruit still uneaten." I think this casting bodes well for a resolution to your troubles. I put the translation I used below. Best wishes Elizabeth:).

Wilhelm Baynes translation

Nine at the top means:
There is a large fruit still uneaten.
The superior man receives a carriage.
The house of the inferior man is split apart.

Here the splitting apart reaches its end. When misfortune has spent itself, better times return. The seed of the good remains, and it is just when the fruit falls to the ground that good sprouts anew from its seed. The superior man again attains influence and effectiveness. He is supported by public opinion as if in a carriage. But the inferior man’s wickedness is visited upon himself. His house is split apart. A law of nature is at work here. Evil is not destructive to the good alone but inevitably destroys itself s well. For evil, which lives solely by negation, cannot continue to exist on its own strength alone. The inferior man himself fares best when held under control by a superior man.

Thanks dancing white ferret. Your answer is very reassuring and I appreciate your time and input. I very much hope you're right. I was just thinking I wish jesed ws still on this board. For such questions he was able to read hexes with regard to a timeline (ie how many days/weeks/months until things do improve) and I'm curious about that as well.

I didnt catch the "going out with girlfriends" advice from the initial reading but I will try your suggestion -- you never know. I have found in the past the Yi says to surround self with friends and miraculously through one of them a problem is often solved, so i am willing to try anything!

Yes, I just keep it simple... I've only been doing this a few months, so some more expert advice would certainly be worthwhile. Having a timeline attached does sound appealing. Perhaps someone on Clarity can provide you some info about the timing here though. Maybe change your post title to include the word timeline or when. Perhaps it will attract a member who is familiar with that type of interpretation. And you included your interest in a timeline in your response, so maybe someone will see to help you with that. Ya never know:)!
