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

Like the Sun rising effortlessly upward at the dawn of a new day, you will find your love life elevated. This fortunate hexagram suggests open-heartedness, unity, nourishment, and transcendence of relationship problems. Expect deeper companionship, clear communication, and kinship. This is a breakthrough time for you, but in order to keep your progress flowing, you may need to reconfigure your priorities so that you are assisting others. Without 'giving' there can be no advancement. Be of service to someone. Offer more than kind words. Be a conduit for love. As love enters your life, calmly and automatically send it to others. The more good energy you generously give away the more you will get. This will be a time of awakening to your true life's purpose. Love will follow.

Changes in Line 1

"Surpassing Obstacles"

As you are elevated to new heights, others can become vindictive or jealous. Let this negativity slide off you like rain drops. You are on your highest path. That is all you need to know.

Changes in Line 2

"Transforming Fear"

The wise person welcomes any challenges that accompany times of growth. All challenges are to be embraced. In this way they will be transformed. Your sense of confidence and inner love can turn fear into passion and excitement.

Changes in Line 3

"Receiving Love and Support"

Slowly and steadily a special someone will turn into your strongest ally. But you must earn their love with your integrity and good intentions.

Changes in Line 4

"Revealing Your Talent"

This is a time to let someone see how fabulous and special you really are. Share your special abilities. Grab center stage! By showing your true talents, your grace and natural attractiveness will increase a hundred fold.

Changes in Line 5

"Stabilizing Your Connection"

Know that the brightness of your love life is secure, despite small bumps and minor setbacks. It's impossible to fail. Stay present with whatever challenges arise and remind yourself to keep unattached to the outcome. The prize you are seeking is already here.

Changes in Line 6

"Maintaining Love and Authority"

There is no harm in being authoritative. Someone special will appreciate your strength. But the wise person always gives the right message. Use tact. Don't abuse your power. Use it for the good of all.

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.
