I Ching Hexagram #48:

The Well Of Joy

How to interpret "The Well Of Joy"

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

An inexhaustible supply of love, nourishment, and sustenance are referenced by this hexagram. Love is in the air. You may notice signs of affection everywhere: In a smile from a stranger, in someone's eyes, in the couple on the bus. Celebrate it, as it is coming your way. There is an abundance of love when you have the eyes to see it. To have the vision you must draw from the inner well of knowledge and wisdom. The wise person understands that despite superficial differences, we are all the same on the inside. We are all creatures deserving of love. A focus on similarities will serve you well right now. Draw your sustenance from the commonalties we share. Good can come from anywhere and everywhere, but the purest source of spiritual love already resides in your heart. Drink deeply from this well -- it goes deeper than you can imagine.

Changes in Line 1

"Muddy Water"

If someone you know is not helping you achieve your desires, then it is time to draw from a better well. Empty the mud

Changes in Line 2

"Caring for the Entire Fish Pond"

Your love life will flourish by paying attention to the broad range of connections in your world. Your love life does not exist in isolation. It gets its sustenance from a power greater than one or two people.

Changes in Line 3

"Clear Water"

You will easily attract or bring out the best in someone right now. The water in your well is pure. Offer it generously.

Changes in Line 4

"Repairing the Well"

This is a good time for rethinking and redesigning relationships. Discuss the agendas and the agreements you are operating from. Communicate calmly. Make changes if necessary.

Changes in Line 5

"Fresh and Clear Water"

This line is a sign of being on the right track. You will soon meet someone very compatible with your deepest views. Put your words into action. Trust the outcome of all interactions.

Changes in Line 6

"Sharing the Well"

Your inner supply of love is inexhaustible, and the more love you give the more you get. Go out and shine your light. Offer praise to someone special and it will bring you closer.


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.
