Oracle of Love

Hexagram 22

Simple beauty.

The hexagram means beauty; in particular, beauty that is uncomplicated and accessible. 

Sometimes things and people around us spontaneously constellate into aspects that emphasise their loveliness. Simple beauty strikes an immediate chord.

Beauty can also be sought out. Artists delight in sharing their revelations of it. But grace is fragile and excessive decoration may hide rather than reveal it.

Grace is an easy gateway to Love.

Suggested Responses

Look for loveliness in your world.

Seek out beauty if it has not arisen spontaneously.

Enjoy beauty as an invitation to Love.


A gateway to Love.

The beauty of nature.
Or, Struck by beauty.

Polish the natural.
Excessive decoration can hide beauty.

A fountain of loveliness.
Love is here.

Grace in one's self.

Look for the loveliness in lowly things.
Their beauty is not always obvious.

In that this hexagram describes beauty arising easily if not spontaneously, it can be seen as the opposite of Hexagram 21 Frustration in which one's efforts to reach delight are constantly thwarted.
