I Ching Hexagram #34:

The Infinite Power Of Love

How to interpret "The Infinite Power Of Love"

NOTE: This is the "Love I-Ching" interpretation. For standard, non romance-specific I Ching interpretations please return to the reference page here.

As if air, thunder, and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies a time of unprecedented access to the universal power and presence of love. This is a time when you will gain the assistance of allies in the rekindling of love. This hexagram reminds us that everything about life, inside and out, is to some extent being influenced by outside forces -- which is why you must pay attention to your inner compass and follow through with your personal plans, projects and ideas. Wonderful new allies may surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands, but your own internal guide will prove the most important here. A great window of opportunity has opened. Let your higher purpose be your ultimate guide, but listen closely to others and make use of the assistance they offer.

Changes in Line 1

"Feet Alone Are not Enough"

If your experience of your power is "only in your feet," this implies it is a little too soon to step forward. It means you have not quite accessed all the strength and love available to you. Give it another week or two. Let your strength emerge into your entire body and being.

Changes in Line 2

"Taking a Stand"

You have great power to rise above any relationship challenges. Go for who and what you want. Be like an arrow. Ask someone special for what you want. Zero in on your target and you will succeed.

Changes in Line 3

"Using Strength Wisely"

Stay mindful of where and how you direct your energy and power. If you use your power wisely and generously, it will draw more love to you. If you use it for selfish gains, it will repel love from you.

Changes in Line 4

"Opened Gates"

There are no obstacles impeding love and connection at this time. Relax and trust. Step forward knowing you are right on track.

Changes in Line 5

"Letting go of the Goat"

This image means: If you find yourself in a squabble or disagreement with a special someone, let it go. Letting go is your strength right now. Giving up a point of view or something you have been clinging to is your best option.

Changes in Line 6

"Butting Heads"

You may fine yourself in deadlock with someone. There is no winner, no loser, no gain, and no loss. The wise person steps back from the fight and stays put for a time. Current relationship challenges will cease to occur by surrendering to and accepting where you are.


A note on iFate's I Ching translation: This is not a direct translation of the original "Book of Changes" from 1000 BC. While multiple translations of the original text are available, they include many archaic references and can be difficult to understand for 21st century readers. iFate uses our own modern rewritings (two different editions) of the "Book of Changes" which makes interpreting I Ching readings far simpler. For iFate's additional contemporary re-writing of the original text, see our "Love I Ching" translation.
