Oracle of Love

Hexagram 43

Almost there.

A long held aim is within one's grasp.

The hexagram describes the closing stages of a development where the thrust of the main journey is over and only the final, delicate docking has yet to be completed.

A multifaceted approach is called for. Attention should be shifted from the journey to the destination so as to be certain of hitting the target, but anticipation should not distract one from taking care of the final details of the journey. It is also necessary to appreciate past contributions that others have made to the journey’s success by giving thanks and settling debt, and ensuring that no issues are left outstanding. All this is feasible since the closure is graceful rather than hectic.

Love may follow the successful closure.
