How to interpret "Luminous Love"
This hexagram is a sign of the return of light and love in your world. The path is clear for romance and the light of success is beginning to glow more brightly. The fog is lifting and your inherent brightness lights up the night sky like a sacred flame. Others will be naturally attracted to your inner glow. Share your warmth with someone. Lend a helping hand. If you go the extra mile right now, someone special will make note of it. It will be up to you to "stay bright" by staying aware of your deeper purpose and highest values. You will make great strides toward your goals and have a healing affect on someone. True love and intimacy are indicated here, but to achieve them you will have to shed your light and love on others around you.

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.
