I Ching Hexagram #61:

Inner Love And Connection

How to interpret "Inner Love And Connection"

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 signifies a deep bond and an unparalleled sense of open-heartedness may be developing between you and another. You're sending out the right signals and your natural attractiveness is being sensed. A time mutual trust in relationships and partnerships is indicated. Reach out to someone and they will reach back. This is an indication that the universe meets you more than half-way when you take action on your own behalf. Let go of lesser opinions you may carry toward a particular person, and seek the beauty and fullness that can be found in all people and things. Access an inner love and an inner truth. Realize all life is interconnected. Everyone is one. As you sense this interconnectedness on the inside, a love relationship will flourish on the outside.

Changes in Line 1

"Cultivating Stability"

Inner love becomes recognized through a stable and secure sense of self. The wise person does not fight with their self inside the mind. Instead, they objectively observe the workings of their own mind. This fosters a deep connection. Harmony becomes prevalent in all relationships.

Changes in Line 2

"Hearing the Call of the Crane"

This line symbolizes that someone special will become closer to you when you are in touch with an inner truth. Listen for their call. Invite them into your life. This will be a time of meaningful and spiritual connection with another.

Changes in Line 3

"Singing and Laughing"

No matter how much joy and warmth others can offer, the wise person always remembers that true love starts in their own heart. This will be a time of great mirth, but you will be the real source of it.

Changes in Line 4

"Receiving Light"

Just as the moon receives the Sun's light, the wise person receives a sense of spiritual light (love) which forms the basis of their inner truth. This is a good time to read inspirational books or be with people you love and admire. Stay true to yourself and your relationships will reach new heights

Changes in Line 5

"Unifying Through Love of Truth"

This line indicates a time of wonderful unions and reunions. Your alignment with inner truth will string together all varieties and all colors of jewels.

Changes in Line 6

"Silencing the Rooster's Call"

This image means: Rouse yourself, instead of letting the rooster rouse you. It means to walk your talk. Don't simply use words and good thoughts to connect with someone. Take positive action.


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.
