Too good to be true.

The hexagram describes an apparent state of perfection. However, the hexagram lacks modesty, meaning that the state of perfection is either not sustainable or is a fantasy.

The hexagram also means falsity, in the sense of a veil or apparition disguising a truth. It can also mean seeing through a veil to an underlying reality.

The hexagram may be relating to a fiction in which reality is idealised, or a dream of perfection that one aspires to, or a belief system that one follows. But it may also be relating to an experience of harmony which, though temporary or fantasized, is spiritually nourishing.

Fantasy is not without value. In the world of theatre and art, for example, the use of imagination and the lure of perfection is often appropriate. Fantasy can be used to stimulate desire. Teasing and foreplay enhance sexual delight.

The hexagram is most likely pointing to a situation that you are interpreting too positively, where things are not as rosy as they seem.

It may be pointing to a difficulty that is imaginary, perhaps arising from a misunderstanding.

It may be that you have unrealistic expectations of an enterprise and are setting your sights too high.

There is a possibility that you are being deliberately deceived. Be wary of theatrical displays of sincerity.

Alternatively, the hexagram may be relating to the enjoyment of a fantasy or the enjoyment of a real but temporary perfection.


The dream is over, yet one is reluctant to leave it.

Enjoy the ride but make no investment.

A dream beyond reach.
Or, The dream evaporates.

Foolishly believing the fantasy.

The real thing is worth more than the fantasy.

Or, one doesn’t fall for the fantasy.
