How to interpret "Abundance Of Love"
This fortuitous hexagram implies an abundance of excitement and unconditional love in your life. Like lightning piercing through clouds, love can strike with incredible speed and force at this time. You have someone's eye. Be ready for spectacular fireworks! Passion, fun, and celebration are all headed your way. However, the wise person knows that love's flames need nurturing. Don't just go for the quick flight. Seek deeper to the source of love in your own heart. This is where the true abundant supply comes from. This is where the fire is, where the dance and celebration are experienced. By all means enjoy the chemistry of the moment, but wherever you are, whoever you are with, connect with yourself first. Be aware of the wellspring of love in your own heart, and your entire romantic life will be transformed. You are your own best treasure. What you seek is within you -- and always has been.

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.
