Oracle of Love

Hexagram 55


The hexagram relates to the material infrastructure of life and to material wealth or poverty.

This hexagram is often an assurance of material welfare, that one’s needs are being met, either through one's own efforts or through another’s agency.

Consider that when material nourishment has been taken care of we become free to engage in Love. That is, material nourishment is a support to a spiritually desirable activity rather than an end in itself. Consider too that material needs can be very demanding of our attention, so when dealing with stuff we should take care not to become possessed.

The hexagram may simply be referring to a substance, probably of a hard, bright and showy variety, like metal or gold.
