Six in the Second Place

Separated from oracle spirit wisdom is time to turn things around.
Maintain discipline and take responsibility for your own nourishment.

Six in the second place changes to hexagram 41. Paintings and Prescription.

Nine in the First Place

You let your magic tortoise go, and look at me with the corners of your mouth drooping.

Pay attention to your intuition, dreams and perhaps the I Ching.
To ignore one’s spiritual side is a sad affair.
Do not envy others. Be self-reliant.

Nine in the first place changes to hexagram 23.

Hexagram 23 Painting & Prescription.

The tortoise shell was used by the ancient Chinese for divination.

Many people who study Chinese characters become obsessed with sexual anatomy. They imagine all kinds of things related to sexual anatomy. There are hundreds of characters that have components related to women, but it is because there is a relation either to the meaning or to the pronunciation. I only find 14 characters whose primitive pictographs have any direct connection with the female anatomy or attributes of women.

母 meaning mother
 Pictograph of a woman with breasts and nipples showing
毋 meaning forbidden 
Pictograph of woman with breasts covered, meaning forbidden
女 meaning a woman
 Pictograph of a woman with breasts with no nipples
每 meaning beautiful
 Pictograph of a woman with beautiful hair
乳 meaning milk
Pictograph of a woman holding a baby breast feeding
孔 meaning hole
 Pictograph of a woman breast feeding through a hole in the cloths meaning nourishment
 Pictograph of breasts see 
頤 to nourish a pictograph of sucking the breasts 
姬 Pictograph of a woman holding an infant 巳 is always a baby as long as it is not confused with 已
孕meaning pregnant
 Pictograph of a pregnant woman 乃 sometimes refer to breasts
妻 meaning wife
 Pictograph of a woman and hand messing with her hair
身 meaning body
 Pictograph of a pregnant woman who has body 有身 is pregnant. Not a fat man.
㐆 meaning to be careful 
Pictograph of a pregnant woman, who must be careful
若 meaning if
 Pictograph of a woman messing with her hair
妾 meaning concubine
 Pictograph of a woman and an upside down 立 indicating she is laying sown ready for sex

Image hexagram 27, Nourishing


Nourish oneself and others.
We need material and spiritual nourishment.
Be mindful of how you nourish.
Learn about a person by noticing what is important for them to nourish.
Keep things in balance whether it is what you take into your body
or express in your words.
Do the words you say nourish others?
Examine your past ways of nourishing
so that you can make good choices in the future.
Nourish new experience.
