Yi: What does the Yi want to say? 38-2 > 21 < 63

I wanted to flesh this one out after first cutting it down. In other words, I wanted to spend more time on this since both question and answer are interesting but I can only do so much as life goes on and other things come up, including other readings since am on a Yijing tear of late. This period might be coming to an end soon, but not yet, not yet….

Also, these documents are too long and soon intend to change their format using these as first draft and then only publishing 1-2 page summaries. I also intend to use less information with each cast, focusing on a clear first impression, then adding in input from texts, trigrams, Heaven Earth and Man and lines. This am already doing but will lighten the approach being more intuitional.

Will also start incorporating Plum Flower method at some point, using event happenings. Today I worked on a Dream reading which will publish shortly. Images and words heard in Dream are used to select the trigrams and then hexagrams rather than casting with cards. Trying to fit the hexagrams to the images is an interesting experience in which the hexagrams and trigrams provide a window into appreciating the qualities of the dream image in question whilst the dream qualities expand one’s appreciation for the various qualities of the trigrams and hexagrams. A mutual learning journey one might say. And fun too.

  1. Hi Baron,
    I look forward to hearing your dream readings!
    I consulted the I.
    “What do I need to do to become a better person and improve the situation for myself, my family, and those I love and care for?”
    The I’s response: 13 Concording People
    I am new to this, so I don’t know what to make of the two versions of broken or solid lines.
    Thank you!


  2. Thank you for your comment, Lex. I do not know what you mean by ‘the two versions of broken or solid lines.’
