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
The only moment is now. Detach yourself from desires created by the egotistic mind. Finding inner peace in this moment brings joy
Second Line - I Ching interpretation
Many pleasure that are presented to us are inappropriate for the superior man. Good fortune follows if these inferior pleasures are not actioned upon.
Third Line - I Ching interpretation
True joy comes from within. If one forgets to nourish its inner truth no true joy can arise. Misfortune.
Fourth Line - I Ching interpretation
Indecisiveness blocks inner peace. Without inner peace no true joy can arise.
Fifth Line - I Ching interpretation
Be careful that disentigrating forces do not influence you. Be aware of these forces in order to protect yourself against them. If successful good fortune will follow.
Sixth Line - I Ching interpretation
Misfortune will follow if one is susceptible for seductive joyousness.
