The I Ching
Understanding the Larger Picture ~
When a roller coaster is being flung this way and that, it’s natural for people to cling onto something they think will stabilize them. However, if they keep grabbing for something that is illusory or no longer there, they will only make the situation worse for everyone.
You may not be aware of how you’re clinging to your own past. It may seem, in your mind, that because things used to work in a certain way, you’ll be safer to return there and that encourages you to grip onto how things used to be even harder. This is a classic survival response and completely understandable.
You may feel safer for a moment, yet if you make the mistake of gripping onto a way of being that can no longer sustain itself, the difficulties you experience will be far greater.
This is the confusing situation the world’s social and political affairs are navigating through.
The I Ching: Navigate Confusion through MODERATION.
The I Ching energy started traveling in a multiple highway pattern on Thursday, March 30th, 2023 and there’s no telling how long it will last.
Of course, that’s happened before many times and when it does, Kuan Yin advises me to “follow the middle road” or the road of MODERATION – the path that is guided from within.
“In difficult times, it’s usually best to move with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
The ancient Chinese text describes finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress amidst chaos. The suggestion is to disengage from extremes or opinionated attitudes and then follow the guidance that comes from within instead. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.
Here are selected excerpts from the text of Hexagram #15 MODERATION, as translated by R.L. Wing:
“Nature balances itself with plagues, droughts, and cycles of overabundance, and human nature strives toward MODERATION in its tendency to reduce the excesses of the over powerful and to augment the needs of those who are desperately wanting.
Worldly matters can now be brought to success through MODERATION. Leaders should strive to firmly carry their objectives through to completion, not with a show of extraordinary force but with the continuing sincerity that springs from their true natures. Confucius says of this idea, “When a man enters public life he does not change from what he was in private life. How unflinching is his strength!” The self-evident, self-actualizing demonstration of purpose is the mark of great leaders acting with MODERATION…
…Your inner development now requires a modest and sincere attitude. Do not indulge in extremes of any sort, and instead strive for MODERATION in all that you do. *It must be understood that acting with MODERATION means not only limiting the obvious excesses, but also exposing yourself to new areas of experience. Through MODERATION you can now gain some real control over your destiny. In this way you use the balancing tendency of the current forces to center yourself. This inner equilibrium aligns you with the tao, thus bringing you into harmony with forces that can work for you.”
Special advice to note from the Fifth Changing Line: “Despite the mild balance that is reached in MODERATION, it may be necessary to take forceful action to accomplish your aims. This should not be done with a boastful display of power, but with firm, decisive and objective action. There will be improvement in whatever you undertake.” ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing
Navigate Confusion with the Tarot
The Tarot Major Arcana Card for 2023 is # VII: The Chariot
Perhaps we could employ the single-minded determination and will power of The Chariot to reform the the myriad of misfortunes we’re experiencing.
The basic meanings for The Chariot card are: forward momentum, action or progressive activity through the balancing of opposing forces.
The image of the charioteer suggests that you be the drivers (mind) in charge of your own vehicle (body) and that you steer with the long view in mind (spiritual). Through determined effort and willpower The Chariot inspires you to take courage as you embark on our journey.
On the reverse side, it could also be a warning that you’re heading for danger. It would be better to “hold your horses” and wait for clarity before moving forward.
Good questions to ask The Chariot are:
Am I driving my own chariot or trying to drive someone else’s?
Is the vehicle I’m using safe and heading in the right direction? Do I need to slow down?
Am I navigating my situation correctly?
Am I heading off in too many directions?
Am I operating under an illusion?
What decision would help me regain or maintain control of my journey?
If you’re serious about harnessing the positive energy of The Chariot, we have a comprehensive Transformation Game for that here.
The Chinese Zodiac –
The Year of the Yin Water Rabbit officially started on January 22nd, 2023.
The beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are said to be: Docile. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious. Considerate. Her fertility and connection with women’s health is legendary, although whether you consider that beneficial or not is entirely up to you!
Her more difficult qualities are liable to be: Irresolute. Skittish. Stubborn. Timid. Escapist. Plus, the rabbit is considered by many to be a trickster, although her tricks can be viewed as warnings about how we may be heading down the wrong rabbit hole.
Rabbit says: “Slow down and take a good sniff before heading down that rabbit hole. There’s more going on here than meets the eye!”

Following the Middle Road Will Help Us With Our Emotional Stress ~

SOS Self-care Formulas and Mind Exercises can help you navigate confusion and restore yourself:
6. Ground in the Truth and Your Power. You may be involved in a power struggle. Grounding in the truth is more important than ever because external power struggles can so easily uproot us from the truth about what’s best for us. Staying centered requires that you know how to use the power of your mind to control your own energy.
7. SOS – Dispelling Self-doubt and Projections. People are becoming sensitive to each others thoughts and emotions more than ever, and it’s especially easy to tap into negative thoughts that you grew up with as a child because they’re so familiar. Free yourself from the grip of projections, paranoia and self-doubt. This self-care formula is from Rheanni Lightwater’s PTSD Workbook.
8. Develop Healthy Boundaries. It’s a valuable skill to know how to shift your energy and develop healthy boundaries. This Self-care Formula uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles to help you learn to consciously close off the pathways to negative thoughts or emotions and shift into a more positive mindset.
