The Images (Hexagrams) of the I Ching Oracle in Psychic Readings

Psychic Readings from The Psychic Internet often feature images drawn from the I Ching Oracle. To offer supplementary information about these images for our clients, and for the public, we have provided this archive of brief articles.

The abstract images of the I Ching Oracle (usually called "hexagrams") symbolize all of the related and interacting aspects of reality. In the following excerpts from actual Psychic Readings, the images of the I Ching are discussed.

The image of Obstruction describes behavior in terms of coming and going, as, for example, in waiting passively for the entrance of another individual into your life, or instead extending yourself towards another individual in a more active fashion. And, in both of the verses that have been highlighted specifically by today’s Reading from the image of Obstruction, the oracle says, “Going leads to obstruction.” In other words, if you were to take an active interest in A., extending yourself in his direction, you would be met only with obstruction. This sense of obstruction, by the way, is a perfect echo of the image of Nine Wands, described above. Its description of boundaries, as I said, stands as a warning to you, but it also implies that those boundaries cannot be overcome. They are a substantial obstruction to a relationship of the kind that you need and deserve.

But these two verses from our I Ching Oracle need to be quoted in full. In the first, the oracle says, “Going leads to obstruction. Hence she comes back.” In the traditional understanding of this verse, someone remains self-contained not only to protect herself, but also to protect others. Thus, you may want to think again about what was said above about A.’s current position in life. It certainly wouldn’t help him to enter into a relationship that has no prospects for true success. He needs healing, not additional hurt.

And in the other verse, the oracle says, “Going leads to obstruction. Coming leads to union.” Here, we see some confirmation of our own feelings about the probability of a new relationship in your life in the relatively near future. Clearly, “going” into a relationship with A. would risk an entanglement that could only impede the “union” that you seek with your proper mate. Whereas, there would be great good fortune for you in “coming,” which means being self-contained and waiting patiently for the destined moment that will bring you together with your future beloved. Everything in life happens at the perfect moment. This is not always easy to believe, but when life is viewed in retrospect, the truth of it is always revealed to the wise.
