Thread: Your Experiences with Unchanging Castings - Hexagram 42

    At the same time I cast 61.2 to 42 for Trump's prospects, so the contrast emphasises the unchangingness of 42.

    42 and 41 are a cycle. Maybe 42 unchanging has a 'where from here?' tone, and the most likely answer is 41. Increase as far as the glass ceiling, but no further.

    Also, personal context: I wanted Hillary to win, so might the answers be meant as reassurance, that this result isn't the end of the story?
    That's my view on all that FWIW http://www.onlineclarity.co.uk/frien...087#post233087

    Regarding Hillary Clinton, the 42uc could refer to her personal prospects in so far as she will probably do perfectly well for herself and may live a happier life without being the potus...

    I cast 42uc today for the question: how can I feel less uneasy about myself? I'm having a slightly angsty day filled with self doubt and even a pinch of self loathing. I trust that yi thinks I'll soon get over it! Me and Hillary Clinton both...

    I've got more to add to this. This morning I realised that the feeling of uneasy self-loathing and anxiety is one that I sometimes get before my period. My period is due about now, although they have become quite irregular so it may not appear. It occurred to me that perhaps the Increase of 42 is like the menstrual increase that's about to break (into 43) - so yes, the feelings of unease will dissipate, which is overall a good thing (42) but the reason for the unease is the menstrual increase that itself will soon move to the next phase (43). I also recalled that I'd experienced unbidden and quite startling mental images of bloodletting while feeling antsy and self-loathey (please note - I have never self-harmed, or felt seriously inclined to do so, in my life). Overall a sense that there is something building up that will soon be released, or that needs to be released. I note that the nuclear is 23, which also has this sense of stripping away.

    Others here (Knot especially) have shared that 42uc has come up for them when they have asked questions relating to an anxiety of the self, and 42uc comes like a reassurance. I wonder if the uneasiness comes as something is building but we are not yet sure where it is headed - it is the transitional nature of the time, feeling that something is coming, but as yet unable to see what or if it is coming - the uncertainty that makes us uneasy. I'd hesitate to call 42uc a 'positive' omen, but I'd say that it suggests that whatever is building is nothing to fear, but is part of the natural flow...?

    It is nearly Christmas, everyone here - including the fish - and last night everyone fell into the old routine - blaming someone, bringing up the same old herrings and I feel in the middle as a mediator. Nothing really bad, just a lot of raised voices and agitation. I asked - What should I do about this Christmas and got 42UC

    Like Knot, I felt an uplifting feeling - of being told not to put too much energy into all of this - as above, nothing to fear, natural flow.

    Well, Christmas is supposed to be a time to count one's blessings, and "Blessing" is a name for 42. But in the absence of that, there's also the advice in the Image, which says to make what improvements one can.

    'Wind and thunder.
    A noble one sees improvement, and so she changes.
    When there is excess, she corrects it.

    Maybe just a small "correction"? Ask everyone gently to try refraining from pointless bickering, in the spirit of the season? Or...distract people by singing Christmas carols and making kitschy ornaments, or...something?

    Yes - it has been a lovely Christmas - as a collective, we decided to ignore one particular person's agitation - put on the loud music and enjoy the food. Lots of long walks, food and games, actually proved a success.
    So 42 was absolutely right this Christmas.

    Copying over some experiences of 42uc from Fallada that really give pause for thought....from this thread https://www.onlineclarity.co.uk/frie...-42-unchanging

    Hello hurt person !
    Maybe the following story helps or inspires or applies .. or not ... you decide.

    Years ago I asked why X stumbled from one into the next abusive situation. This tragic life seemed to cover all possible forms of abuse from early childhood on: emotional, sexual, physical violence, abused as a kind of working slave ... She was the sweetest, most generouse and uncomplicated person. She had her desperate moments, but she never gave up and always tried to become a better person. Don't know where she drew her strenght from. What is X's pattern that invites/allowes abuse ? 42uc. One day she disappeared without a trace. My heart still opens up wide when I think of her.

    For some years this reading captured my mind and I started to think of it as a kind of koan. Yi can be so annoyingly clever.

    One day when parking I scratched my neighbour's (big and new!) car. OMG. This will be expensive. Left my number behind his wiper. How will this be settled? 42uc. Days later he called me. He was so generouse: "Oh, the damage can hardly be seen, it took me days to realize what you mean. Let's not fuss about it. Have a nice day".

    Then the penny dropped.

    Today I have been forced to reckon with Hexagram 42 (also, according to Douglas Adams, the number of the universe...)

    Today I have cast about different projects:

    Shall I apply for this job? > 51
    Should I check in with this funder re my proposal in terms of what they're looking for? 42.3.6 > 63
    Shall I stick to my guns re said proposal? > 51 (again)
    How should I proceed with negotiating for this other project proposal? 41.2.5 > 42
    How do I reconcile the more spiritual, esoteric aspects of myself (the real bits) with actually making some kind of difference in the world? 42 uc

    All these questions referred to job/life-purpose-type questions (in essence, how I should manifest in the world) - different possibilities, options and directions - and I interpreted all of them in terms of 'becoming my best self', ie not compromising who I am to fit other people's expectations or worldly concerns.

    It seemed particularly important that the BIG question at the end received 42uc, as if to clarify all the earlier casts. I had also today been listening to an audio version of A Course in Miracles, which I have a number of reservations about, but nevertheless one bit rang true for me : that one 'must go through a period of sorting out... having learned that the changes in his life are always helpful, he must now decide all things on the basis of whether they increase the helpfulness or hamper it. He will find that many, if not most of the things he valued before will merely hinder his ability to transfer what he has learned to new situations as they arise.'

    This seems very much to encapsulate the 41-42 pair for me and which seems to be my lesson for today... sorting out the wheat from the chaff, in a sense; increasing the wheat, decreasing the chaff...

    She is too generous?

    To me hexagram 42 Unchanging is very refreshing. I do feel though like any reading nothing is is set in stone and with the universe being as fluid as it is well....
    I have had this reading for my weekly readings in "what do I need to know about my business this week". It tends to come after stress or struggle so its always a relief for me. I think the advice in

    Wind and thunder: the image of INCREASE.
    Thus the superior man:
    If he sees good, he imitates it;
    If he has faults, he rids himself of them

    Is extremely important,

    In a business sense its really auspicious however I believe you are given opportunities. You need to be there to take them, there also seems to be advice sharing the wealth. This is 42 Unchanging in a business sense to me.

    For example 42 Unchanging is not set in stone as I mentioned, lets say you have some great opportunities and then an old friend comes into town, you go out have a great night drinking then sleep in the next day till 12pm.
    You may miss the boat, and in fact you would be off path and slipping back into a hexagram 41 situation.
    Quite easily,
    So this advice of doing what is right and TOTALLY avoiding what is wrong I feel personally has a huge amount to do with the reading.

    If you are new to the Iching you could possibly look at as the Yi saying ok you are on path. Lets get in the car put the car in first gear and hit the open road. Take it all in, however if you were to mess around on your smart phone at the same time you could veer off the road or (path) and have a set back.

    To me the advice is that if you do what is right the rewards can be immense.

    I loved the stories here its a great thread, I liked them all but I like Trojina's story of taking what she could from the course and ignoring the negative flirting.

    That i think was a clear case of

    Wind and thunder: the image of INCREASE.
    Thus the superior man:
    If he sees good, he imitates it;
    If he has faults, he rids himself of them

    There also seems advice to remember nothing good lasts forever so you could take it as "Make Hay While the Sun Shines"

    INCREASE. It furthers one
    To undertake something.
    It furthers one to cross the great water.

    Sacrifice on the part of those above for the increase of those below fills the people with a sense of joy and gratitude that is extremely valuable for the flowering of the commonwealth. When people are thus devoted to their leaders, undertakings are possible, and even difficult and dangerous enterprises will succeed. Therefore in such times of progress and successful development it is necessary to work and make the best use of time. This time resembles that of the marriage of heaven and earth, when the earth partakes of the creative power of heaven, forming and bringing forth living beings. The time of INCREASE does not endure, therefore it must be utilized while it lasts.

    In a nutshell for me its a clear sign of being on track but a warning to make some good decisions.
    Be kind to yourself and others applies as well . I like the saying applied to the line as well To rule truly is to serve.

    Happy New Year
