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 idea of caution is only strengthened by the appearance of the second of the two images that we drew for you today from our I Ching Oracle. The image of Treading should be understood primarily in the terms suggested by its so-called Judgment. In this verse, the oracle says, “Treading upon the tail of the tiger, it does not bite the woman. Success.” In another ancient saying attached to the image of Treading, it is said, “That which treads does not stay.” Here too you find an echo of the idea that you need to keep moving, and treat any romantic involvement with the man in question in this Reading as a purely transitory event in your life. Love in this case is a “tiger” and that makes it dangerous, something deserving intense respect – at a distance.

Another translation of the name of this image would be Conduct. And another great ancient verse attached to this image says, “Conduct shows the basis of character. It is harmonious and attains its goal. It brings about harmonious conduct.” This, you see, is the opposite of the “conflict” that is posed in the first image. By treading, by moving onward and not getting bogged down in this relationship, you would avoid conflict that will otherwise inevitably arise in this relationship.

I should also emphasize the way in which this last quoted verse tends to highlight the importance of self-determination in your life. Your conduct is, after all, an expression of your character. And your character is formulated on the basis of your faithfulness, or lack thereof, to the ideals that you set for yourself. The outcome of the relationship is entirely up to you. You can make it a success by understanding its limitations, and by protecting yourself against entanglement in any serious romance that may arise from it.

If there has already been some romance between the two of you, then it may be time for you to think about what has been said here, and then make some firm decisions. If not, then it is important that you realize that a fruitless romance may be the extent of its potential, and you may want to consider very carefully how to protect yourself from any possible negative consequences. Protect your vulnerabilities. You are still right on track to the great happiness and fulfillment that you will find one day.
