Thread: Your Experiences with Unchanging Castings- Hexagram 19

  1. #21

    Default

    I have read somewhere that in the case of unchanging hexagrams one should consider the complementary (some call it shadow) hexagram too. In the case of 19 this is 33.

    Good thinking. Funny you should mention it, I was just thinking about that.

    Yes the complementary(or inverse on table below) is 33 . The shadow is different, here it is 46.

    Shadow is harder to find, it's like
    1 64
    2 63
    3 62

    etc but luckily there's a ready made table here http://www.invisibletouch.co.uk/iChi...&txtFrmState=2

    If 33 is the opposite/complement well yes I can see how 33 complements 19.

    I'm overall less convinced by the idea of the shadow hexagram. That is meant to be what our hexagram is not.

    Not only what it is not (that's the opposite/complement) but what it might seem to be, but isn't--at least as I understand it. It's interesting to think that the tactical withdrawal of 33 is exactly what 19 is not--you don't withdraw but hold your ground with heart open to the sky (that's what the hexagram looks like to me).

    On the other hand you might easily mistake "not retreating" for pushing forward, trying hard, building up small things to make a great thing (46), but you shouldn't. Hmmmm.

    I got 19 unchanging twice.
    Quite recently I got it when asking for advice for my 2-day trip, when one day I was more or less wandering through city, and the other joined a family constellation session, so I can see it a lot like overseeing with some looking after everyone aspect. There was something spiritual about it too.
    The other time when I received 19U I asked if I would like sex with another woman.

    I got 19UC for my year 2014, and promised to update this thread... Well, after a year of 19UC, I am still rather foggy about It. But overall, 19UC was a very busy year, a lot of new things bubbling up. It started on a hopeful expansive note: a large project on a high daily rate, something which had indeed not happened to me for awhile; and a personal development workshop which was hard but had huge impact on my perspective on life, and led to a meaningful new friendship. The positive aspects of 19UC culminated with a lovely, deeply relaxing summer holiday, total bliss, months 7-8. Nothing really bad happened in the Autumn, but the mood changed: months 9-12 were extremely stressful- a client from hell, a tax audit (routine but stressful), noisy construction work which went on for 6 months. Since early 2015, things have calmed down. So, based on this experience, I suppose my take on 19UC would be: a hopeful, expansive start,enjoy it, and cultivate the seeds that are planted, they can grow for a long time to come. But remember that nothing lasts forever, life goes in cycles

    I keep forgetting my own posts and interpretations

    This is a new experience with 19UC. Still not sure what to make of it. I am looking for a property to buy, and saw something which would, rationally, be a very nice investment, and within my means. That was in in June. I did visit it, and thought a lot about it... I figured it would sell fast, it was a good property. I asked "outlook for buying this property?" And got 19UC. I took it as "you can buy it, you will be happy for awhile, but it won't last". The timing was not quite right, and something was holding me back, it wasn't exactly my dream home but close enough...I didn't make an offer.

    It didn't sell immediately, and the agent contacted me again in August about an open house last week.But I was abroad and couldn't act on it, and still had reservations. But I have been looking for a long time, and started talking myself into it. Today I asked again "outlook for buying this place?" And got 19UC again!!! I thought maybe it was still on the market? I asked the agent and she said it had had several offers and was sold over the asking price.

    Based purely on this experience, I must have misread the first reading: it probably meant "you can have it if you want it, but seize the day, it will not be around for long. It will be gone by the 8th month, ie August". The second reading makes no sense to me... Is the IC saying "I told you so. When you see something, don't wait around, make up your mind and make an offer," Or maybe it suggests something better come along? Anyway. Getting the same cast twice for the same question was worth sharing!

    I hung a mandala at the foot of my bed where I see it before going to sleep and when I wake up. It's a circle with many triangles intersecting each other. The day after I hung it, that is the first day after I'd gone to sleep focusing on it and then again focusing on it first thing in the morning, I was very busy with many unexpected activities but everything got handled smoothly. I thought perhaps staring at this visual had somehow encouraged various parts of my brain to connect and communicate with each other better. I asked the I Ching, "What is the effect of this mandala?" I received 19uc which I interpret to mean looking at the piece does indeed open ones mind and allows higher understanding to Approach.
    I note that unchanging suggests to me that it merely offers an opportunity for a larger experience. It's like a phone - you can use it to connect but it's not making anything happen.

    I got hexagram 19uc yesterday morning as a reading for the day.
    I had an eye exam scheduled and as it turned out I arrived a half hour before my appointment. The receptionist told me I wouldn't be called for an hour, so I left. When I returned an hour later the receptionist was stressed as she expected I would wait in waiting room, when it turned out I'd gone my slot was given to another. So I had to wait awhile longer for my turn.

    I now see how hexagram 19 can be a warning about being ahead of time.

    I've recently moved onto a boat currently moored in a pretty large body of water - a freshwater harbour leading to estuary and ultimately the sea. It's pretty busy with lots of boats of all kinds, most of which I guess are not all that careful about what they put into the water in the form of fuel, horrid chemicals etc. Despite this there are lots of ducks and swans (and probably fish) here and because I am aware that anything I put down the plughole goes straight into the water, I'm pretty careful about what I put down there. Yesterday I was cleaning the bath and decided to use a scouring product called 'Barkeeper's Friend' which I'd purchased while living on land. No sooner had I sprinkled it liberally around the bath than I remembered it would go straight down the plughole. Panicking, I read the label which gave no indication of toxicity other than the standard 'this product is an irritant - wash eyes immediately' etc. That didn't sound good. I consulted the product website which said the main ingredient - citric acid monohydrate - wouldn't harm terrestrial wildlife but could be toxic to marine life, although it disperses rapidly in nature. It advised not allowing spills to enter a body of water. Oh dear!! I carried on wiping and scouring (since it was already there), and soon there was no visible powder anywhere, so I wondered what to do next. I asked the Yi if it was safe to run water through the bath, meaning that any residue would be flushed into the harbour. I got: 19uc.

    This made me feel completely reassured, so I filled up the bath a little (to dilute any residue) and flushed it through, then ran a shower to further dilute. The ducks and swans are still alive so hopefully all goes well... however, I won't use it in future, just in case!
