Oracle of Love

Hexagram 49

Sudden and significant change.

The hexagram describes a condition that has become unsustainable and is ripe for change. Transformation is available or has come. The development of the condition may have been gradual but the transformation is sudden and significant.

The transformation is not necessarily unwelcome or uncomfortable. One may even have seen it coming and been able to prepare for it.

The transformation may occur spontaneously but it can also be pushed over the edge.

Suggested Responses

This is a good time to make a change, if you are not already in the midst of one.

If any action is taken to initiate the change, it should only be sufficient to trigger an existing potential. Any need for a concerted or forceful campaign is a sure sign that the action is misplaced and should be stopped.

Conditions that are ripe and suitable for change should be easily identifiable. Consider particularly your own state of mind, changeable through the pursuit of Love. Consider too, the drastic transformation of the human psyche triggered by the ingestion of psychoactive drugs.

It may be that you are in a position to see the change coming, especially if you have initiated an action to trigger it. In this case, preparations can be made beforehand to ensure that the transformation occurs as cleanly and as comfortably as possible.
