I Ching hexagrams interpretation

I Ching Hexagram 16: Yü - Enthusiasm

Yü - Enthusiasm stands for devotion that leads to inspiration from which enthusiasm will arise. It also indicates a movement along the path of least resistance. At the same time there is also a negative form of enthusiasm if it is based on unjust principles.

I Ching interpretation / The Judgement

If you draw this I Ching hexagram with the online I Ching oracle this means that: if proper enthusiasm is displayed many doors may be opened. To arouse enthusiasm however it is important that you are in alignment with your environment. Only in that case your enthusiasm from within is able to manifest itself properly in the outer world.

This so called devoted enthusiasm works miracles. Ensure your goal is not to satisfy your own ego or force your will upon others. Only in doing what is right and good will one find true peace.


I Ching lines interpretation

The I Ching hexagram consists of six lines. If lines are changing in your online I Ching Oracle consultation these should be included in your I Ching interpretation as well. Furthermore the I Ching lines have their separate interpretation.

The bottom I Ching line deals with reality, that what is. The second line is related to how you connect to others. Cause and effect how do you react?

The third line deals with your emotions and how to cope with them. The fourth line is related to making choices in order to remain on track. The fifth line represents the organising aspect of things.

It involves leadership, following up on ideals and planning. The I Ching top line has to do with spirituality. It concerns your tao, beliefs, religion and more.

First Line - I Ching interpretation

Be aware of egotistic patterns in an enthusiastic effort. Enthusiasm only works if it is based on a deeper belief that it will create union between others.

Third Line - I Ching interpretation

Ensure your timing is right if you act upon enthusiasm. Don't rely on others be true to yourself in choosing.

Fourth Line - I Ching interpretation

Wholly sincere people will attract others with their enthusiasm. Freedom from hesitation and determination will ignite the divine spark in others.

Fifth Line - I Ching interpretation

Success is hindered by your ego. Constant pressure prevents one from being free. Take time to reconnect with your inner truth prior to carrying on.

Sixth Line - I Ching interpretation

It might be that you have been deluded by enthusiasm. This realisation might be harsh at first, however self correction will lead to good fortune eventually.

The I Ching hexagram consists of two trigrams. Above Chên - Thunder and below K'un - Earth.
