Opening Up

Oracle of Love

Hexagram 59


The hexagram means gently but purposefully dissolving obstructions, clearing a way so that things become free .

It suggests exploration as a tool for liberation. That which is unfamiliar can prove an impediment until it has been explored sufficiently to yield a knowledge by which it can be managed.

Exploring new ideas can lead to technologies that overcome physical obstructions.

Education, insofar as it promotes exploration, opens the intellect to new influences and frees it of ignorance and prejudice.

Exploring new attitudes and states of mind develops the flexibility to overcome one’s own mental blockages. Dissolving a false persona opens up the possibility of acting with unbridled sincerity.

Sexual orgasm is an immediate form of self-dissolution.

The hexagram has meaning for the development of sexual relation. It describes newly engaged partners opening to each other and overcoming obstacles to their intimacy by a process of exploration and familiarisation.

This is a time for accomplishment rather than waiting. Exploring can be exciting and liberation is satisfying. Take advantage of the time to Love.
