I Ching Hexagram #58

This welcome hexagram marks a powerful turning point for you in the area of relationships. An ecstatic union is forming. Your heart is opening wider with every breath. This is a time when you will easily experience the qualities of unwavering friendliness, love, and loyalty towards another. This will happen naturally, but it will help to keep a clear focus on inner joy. Through inner joy — the kind that does not depend on another person - you can create blissful relationships. This is a time do things you truly love doing, even if it means putting your needs before someone else's needs for once. Do what makes your heart sing. This will create a mindset and atmosphere that lets incredible love flow into your life. But remember -- bliss is both a reward and it's own danger. Enjoy it, but do not lose yourself in it -- the path is long.
