For standard, non romance-specific I Ching interpretations please return to the reference page here. This foreboding hexagram signifies a time of low energy and lack of support. A special someone may try to smother you or keep you trapped into playing an old role. This is a time of feeling constrained or isolated.

Since both bodies of water tend to move downward, eventually the Lake is drained. The Lake represents a sense of trying to contain fulfillment, while the Abysmal Water suggests a source that is inexhaustible. Like an ocean that cannot be depleted because all streams lead back to it, you access a source within that is inexhaustible.

It is inexhaustible only when you do not try to contain it. In giving it is only when there are strings attached that we become exhausted.

The hidden influence of Family shows us the proper way to support others as if everyone is our Family. When you model nature, observe how all life forms follow instincts or an inborn pattern of development. Oppression pushes back against you and has a way of whittling away the unnecessary that leads to exhaustion, until only the necessary remains.

Thereby it stimulates the mind, toughens the nature and improves all deficiencies. Success comes when you can approach all of life without prejudice. With economy, I can be liberal. Not presuming to claim precedence in the world I can make myself a vessel fit for the most distinguished service. When the winds of change blow, it moves too, and simply bends in shimmering laughter.

Great fullness comes when you recognize success as a pathway of self-completion, and that the seed is always within. When there is no longer anything to be removed, you are rich. Oppression unchanging can show the long term effects of dealing with a deteriorating situation that you have been unsuccessful in changing. Even with the patience of a saint this can only lead to exhaustion. It may be time to throw in the towel because unchanging, the Oppression is simply confining you in an unhealthy way.

You may want an answer or something spoken but the truth and the growth you might have achieved was revealed in the silence. Unwilling to adapt to the challenge presented, the opportunity for growth can be missed.

This can happen when you are feeling depressed but doing nothing to get out of your rut. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing while expecting a different result. Perhaps you have even begun to lie to yourself? Another may no longer trust what you say as the truth.

In this situation somebody feels hemmed in, trapped and movement or communication has stopped. There can be a clash of interests or the exhaustion that comes from not being heard.

Perhaps stepping back or changing course is the only way forward. If you feel isolated, talk to someone who can be objective in helping you find your way forward. Changes to 58 Joy. Even while the situation clearly shows that nothing is growing, one remains in it. In this case Joy can be a self deluding or escapist approach to ignoring how bad things really are. The only pathway to authentic Joy is in admitting that you may need to face the truth about the situation.

Changes to 45 Gathering Together. It is not uncommon for even the wealthiest of individuals to feel depressed. This is because no amount of possessions can take the place of real fulfillment. In this situation instant gratification or the search for pleasure has become more important than obtaining lasting fulfillment or making the sacrifice needed for real happiness. You may have gathered a lot of companions but are lacking in real friends. Changes to 28 Critical Mass.

The situation is one that is severely limiting and some type of change is required. Critical Mass shows how the roof collapses because the foundation is not strong enough.

Not seeing the spouse can be a message that you are attempting to make someone something they are not. Changes to 29 Abyss. The situation is one that is not easy but the end of difficulty is in sight. Because of the danger presented the situation can be humiliating although you protect yourself from its affects and remain silent. In fact, the power of silence and the resiliency of spirit can be at play in a way that actually allows the situation to correct itself.

Changes to 40 Liberation. During a time of oppression or punishment all you can do is to learn from the situation and ensure that your spirit is not broken. The offering can be allowing the ego needs to fall away so that you connect with a spiritual perspective. Liberation suggests freedom although there is not much you can change in the situation. Therefore, Liberation in the face of Oppression can mean acceptance.

Changes to 6 Conflict. The situation is unpleasant and does not provide any comfort. However, leaving may not be an option. Conflict is a condition that asks that you meet opposition half way. Perhaps the Oppression you feel is merely an illusion.


Hexagrama 47, K’UN: La opresión, el agotamiento

Solamente nuestra autentica naturaleza interior es superior a todo destino adverso, y solamente con ella podemos superar la adversidad de manera que cuando esta pase podamos seguir gozando de la vida y de nuestro camino de crecimiento espiritual. Cuando el vendaval pasa, el junco se levanta porque aunque se ha doblado ante la adversidad nunca se deja romper interiormente, siempre conserva su naturaleza original, nunca deja de ser un junco. El gran hombre trae buena fortuna. Sin reproches. Los hombres inferiores no son capaces de esto. Es cierto que su influencia no es reconocida, sus palabras no tienen efecto.



En el trigrama inferior un trazo luminoso se encuentra entre dos trazos oscuros. Los hombres superiores se encuentran oprimidos y sometidos a las restricciones que les oponen los hombres inferiores. El gran hombre trabaja la fortuna. Sin reproches. Los hombres vulgares no son capaces de esto. Es cierto que por el momento su influencia no es reconocida y que sus palabras no tienen efecto.


Interpreting The I Ching - Hexagram 47 K'un

This has inner and outer trigrams forming lake over water. It is important to not sink into a hole of despair but instead work hard to encourage yourself to endure. When we are unable to overcome a difficultly, then it is easy to have feelings of depression. And suddenly, we lose the power to continue moving forward. Hexagram 47 yijing warns against these feelings and reminds an individual that this too shall pass. We must be willing to endure all forms of life, both pleasant and troublesome.
