I Ching Hexagram #50:

The Cauldron Of Manifestation

How to interpret "The Cauldron Of Manifestation"

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

This hexagram symbolizes a rich cauldron of vitality and nourishment. It is an indication of supreme good fortune in love and in life. Your heart, body and soul will be well taken care of. The cauldron is a container for your hopes, dreams, and prayers. It is like a spiritual vessel that stores and then carries your dreams to fruition. Concentrate on who or what you want. Any apparent obstacles in your way will dissolve or be altered in such a way that they then act to propel your relationships forward. Love will flow as your good thoughts and healing energies increase, but remember -- you must think it (and believe it) for it to happen.

Changes in Line 1

"Tipping the Cauldron"

This will be a time when you easily let go of someone, or something, you no longer need. You will rid yourself and your life of old ideas that no longer help your relationships. Tip over the cauldron and receive anew the love that is knocking at your door.

Changes in Line 2

"Fire under the Cauldron"

Things are starting to sizzle. Someone special is growing closer and the flames of desire grow higher.

Changes in Line 3

"The Cauldron's Handle Snaps"

This line is a reminder to be patient and not get overly frustrated when a special someone does not comply to your wishes. Ride out the rough spots and soon you will be sailing on once again.

Changes in Line 4

"The Cauldron's Leg Breaks"

This line implies a small setback. Take a breather and reevaluate your romantic life. This is a time to start over, apologize and make amends, and receive support from a good friend.

Changes in Line 5

"Bright Golden Handles"

This is a powerful moment in time. The cauldron's old handles have been replaced by beautiful new handles, signifying a bright new person in your life. Expect good things to come.

Changes in Line 6

"Decorated with Jade"

A cauldron decorated with jade means good fortune in matters of the heart. Your love life will enter a new state of grace and harmony.


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.
