How to interpret "Deepening Into Trust"

vintage divider
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 indicates a growing trust on your path toward love. Your trust of yourself is increasing. Old doubts are washing away. As trust builds, it paves the way to more fulfilling interactions, blissful romance, and genuine love. You are more receptive to increased kindness and communication in your life. Kindness and communication are the unifying forces in the world. You are being given the opportunity to deepen your affection toward someone you may previously have distanced yourself from. You can now create, or re-create, a stronger bond. Move forward with integrity and faith, but don't form a relationship merely out of convenience or formality. Access a deep trust for yourself and another, and all the love in the universe will be yours.

Changes in Line 1

"Easing Forward"

This is a time to fade into the woodwork. Don't pursue someone too eagerly and don't try to come between another couple or partnership. Walk forward slowly and with sensitivity.

Changes in Line 2

"Avoid Seeing out of One Eye"

Current relationship problems can be solved by seeing the full picture and by asking for help. Maintain loyalty to your friends and relatives. This will help you through any challenge in matters of love.

Changes in Line 3

"The Grass is No More Greener"

Your love life is right on schedule. This line is a reminder to trust what is. Let go of all subconscious jealously. The grass is green everywhere. The wise person celebrates other's good fortune in matters of romance.

Changes in Line 4

"Good May be Delayed"

Like a marriage ceremony that gets delayed until another date, you may experience a momentary pause on your heart path. Nothing has gone wrong. Be patient. Rest assured you are on the right track. Deeper solutions will come in time.

Changes in Line 5

"Approaching the Full Moon"

This line is a sign of good fortune in matters of love. Things will soon start to heat up. Love is in the air and your natural attractive force is strengthening every day.

Changes in Line 6

"Filling Your Basket"

The basket represents your capacity for joy and trust. The solution to current relationship challenges lies in filling your basket with faith. You are this basket. You will get what you want by filling yourself first. Give yourself whatever it is you want someone else to give you. The Law of Attraction is at play. For example, fill yourself with the feeling of sweetness, and you'll quickly magnetize a sweet love to yourself.

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.
