OK. I'll give you my interpretation of your first hexagram, since you so kindly gave a little bit more context..
First of all you have to realize that the I-Ching gives you a response on your soul level. That means nothing more than that is does not give you an
answer which is interpretable with your brain, your cognition.'
61. the first trigram (lower one) is "lake". It stands for everything that is new, exciting and refreshing. It is what gives your inner being a
sense of refrshing new hope. Something to anticipate, a bedding for some new paths in life, something that one does not doubt, it just feels good and
eagerness to start it. It is like first love, without any doubt about anything.
The upper trigram is "wind". It stands for motherly feelings and a motherly archetype. It's caring and sturdy, protective and devoted. It's a
sense of completion and a safe haven.
Every line from the lower towards the upper is a progression. This is chronological. But it doesn't mean pers se that it is from now on, it can also
already been completed.
So interpretating this question regarding your ex, I-Ching says this: In the beginning there is instant love and excitement, youthlike and it
progresses into an embedded love, a cherised love, a matured love.
That there are no changing lines, means that this is the story as it is. It's love and it matures. Or it was love and it matured.
You are somewhere along that time line. At either point. You, yourself, know exactly, in your soul, where you are. You can wish for everything you
want, but you still are somewhere along that line. So you can cherish it for what it is, or you can't. That is a question for the ego.
I know you are eager for a second outcome, or at least curious why there doesn't seem to be one. But really, this is what it is.
So personally, I think I-Ching is saying: accept that you two already have something solid going on. A deep trust in each other; a safe haven.
(Accepting something requires that there is NO change; it requires standing still and taking everything in that is.)
It's a really archetypical hexagram: from an uninhibited curious child to a loving and caring mother.
So, what's next? Nothing is next untill you accept the above. Once you have acknowledged this fully, only then you can ask a new question about where
it may lead to..
Well, I hope this helped to get you a better kickstart into interpretating the I-Ching. Mind you, that fully understanding the I-Ching requires life
time studying. It's not an exact science. It's science of the soul.
I always try to follow my heart in it's teachings and i am convinced that
that is the only way!
Good luck on your endeavours!
