The Well

Oracle of Love

Hexagram 48

Be mindful of your deeper feelings.

The hexagram uses the metaphor of a well to describe using one's mind to reach into the depths of one's being and bring one's deeper feelings to the conscious surface.

Our deepest, most sincere, feelings of Love are our connection to spirituality. Bringing them into consciousness brings us to an awareness of our spirituality.

Reaching such depths is not easy. Sincerity is our guide. But sincerity is fragile and mindfulness is needed to recognise sincerity without disrupting it. Persevere through difficulty.

Fetching our deeper feelings into conscious awareness makes them available to be expressed outwardly. However, by exposing our intimate selves in this way we make ourselves vulnerable and should take care about whom we show our hearts to.
