Oracle of Love

Hexagram 60


One is exceeding an acceptable limit.

The hexagram means stopping, either as a voluntary act or as an imposed condition.

This is not necessarily a permanent change of direction, nor a request to do absolutely nothing. It means that one's current activity is not appropriate or is distracting from something more important. The paused activity can probably be resumed later.

Alternatively the hexagram may simply be noting that something has stopped or will do so.

The concept of limitation extends to the idea of stopping a stopping. For example, if you are currently abstaining from something then this may be a suggestion to end the fast.
