The I Ching is an ancient oracle that is still relevant and useful today. Consulting it is like asking a friend or mentor for their thoughts on your problem or situation. Anyone can consult the I Ching for themselves or for someone else who needs help or advice about any subject.

Can you please help me understand what’s happening to me

Background Info:

my life has been going through a lot of changes recently and I am trying to make sense of what is actually happening to me.

   Line   Count   First Hexagram   Second Hexagram
    6       8       ---   ---         ---   ---
    5       8       ---   ---         ---   ---
    4       8       ---   ---         ---   ---
    3       9       ----O----         ---   ---
    2       8       ---   ---         ---   ---
    1       8       ---   ---         ---   ---
 Hexagram number    010 (15)          000 (2)

Interpretation of answer:

The first hexagram 010 (15) Seems to indicate that I need to be modest and realistic about my abilities and options in this situation. I must remain calm despite the storms raging around me. If Im quiet and determined in my chosen course of action there will be great good fortune.

My changing line – Be humble, have a good work ethic then people will want to be around me.
2nd hexagram: 000 (2) The solution to the problem may be unusual and creative.
Take no action just now but seek the help and guidance of a leader or role model, work with like minded people. Then make plans for future activitiy when the time is right.

How does what’s happening now bode/relate to my future?

Background Info:

My life has been going through some major changes. Over Christmas I and my kids have been really ill with the flu, things have slowed down a lot and feel that I am in a holding pattern regards the changes that have been happening. I’m wondering how things are shaping up for the future.

   Line   Count   First Hexagram
    6       8       ---   ---
    5       8       ---   ---
    4       8       ---   ---
    3       7       ---------
    2       7       ---------
    1       7       ---------
 Hexagram number    070 (11)
No changing lines, hence no second hexagram.
This is normal it shows that for the moment 
your situation is stable.

Interpretation of answer:

It appears that not all is lost and I have cast a very lucky hexagram. Good fortune is achieved with virtually no effort (I like the sound of that!) Bad things are going away and good things are coming soon.

There are no changing lines so it appears that my situation is stable for the moment. There will be help available. looks like the future is looking good. keep the faith and stay positive, things will get better.

    1       7       ---------         ---------
 Hexagram number    063 (61)          061 (41)

Interpretation of answer:

Negotiate with care. Keep things simple to help communication. Show respect, be patient & cheerful. Message may need to be repeated many times. You have good vibes & people are drawn to you.

Be careful not to get angry, stay calm & be organized. Have a destination in mind & take the necessary steps to make it happen. No shortcuts!

Ask for advice from experts but be sincere & respectful when you do so.

Things look favourable for a positive outcome if I Ching’s advice is carefully followed.
