Oracle of Love

Hexagram 24

The starting point. Stay home.

The hexagram deals with the time of birth, the earliest stage of a development. It also deals with the place of birth and the need to provide an undisturbed environment for the newborn.

The newly born is vulnerable. It is not ready to expose itself to the outside world and should not venture far from home. In the early stages of an enterprise one should recognise the likelihood of making mistakes and not set one's sights too high.

The hexagram also means returning to a starting point, either as a repetitive cycle starting again or as a homecoming.
