You have passed through a time of doubt and darkness. Some might call it depression. It wasn’t that; it was you, warming up to get ready for the big breakthrough.During this last period we have passed through, the light of love, abundance, and success has at times seemed like a fleeting memory. You may have felt like you were being teased by the light—just at the very moment you thought you would grasp it, it slipped away—now you see it, now you don’t.Never doubt that the universe has a wicked sense of humor. It is to keep you on your toes and make sure you have the ability to laugh at yourself, the self you often take so bloody seriously.Through your perseverance and good intention, Possession in Great Measure is here and here to stay, if you allow it. Be aware that Da You, while sounding the bell of abundance, also carries a formula for abundance attached to a warning: that to maintain this joyous and abundant pathway you must refrain from arrogance, judgment, and self-delusion.
Recall your what brought you here on your pathway; pretty magical, if you look at it from the right end of the telescope. Appreciate what you have done and who has helped you achieve the necessary clarity to reach for and maintain what is yours. Honor yourself and them—especially those who have sorely tested you. Opportunity abounds now, whether in business, love, your health, or your spiritual development. Be generous in all things, and this time of abundance will continue to circulate through your life.
At this time, the pieces of the puzzle of life have come together to make a beautiful image of the future and your place in it. Obstacles are removed, and darkness and the dark ones are vanquished. This is a time when you have been readied to receive great blessings—in love, business, health, family, and friendships.
Sometimes the ego tells us that what we see is false, an illusory trick of the mind. Do not let fear or doubt allow you to conclude that what is being presented to you is yet another manipulation from the ego to hold you in the bondage of feeling separate. Do not let the ego have its way with you, as that would only prevent you from claiming the abundance and joy that is placed squarely before you. These presentations will not be subtle, either; the light of the universe is shining on them.
Trust and remember to share the wealth that now comes to you, in whatever form it takes, like a warm, fragrant breeze floating on an early summer night. In case you may have forgotten, that breeze is called love, and it is a flow.
Use love to illuminate your path and the path of those who walk with you. In this way, the way of sharing, your love, inner strength, and spirit will increase, and the harmonious circumstances that set things in their present course will be recognized and honored. To keep the current of love flowing through your life, use humility, grace, good manners, and generosity.
When we are positioned well in times such as these we must recognize that we have a responsibility to our family, associates, and tribe of friends. As you feel more secure in your seat of abundance, give of your time and loving energy: to children, to the beneficial ecology of Mother Earth, and to all the living beings that surround us. There is transformative magic in these actions, and you are now the magician. Recognize your role and act on it. In this way, this blessed cycle will repeat again and again in your life.
Shine like the sun at midday. Bring laughter and happiness to those around you. The true message of this hexagram is held in your heart. It is the key to gaining the confidence to magically transform your own life and the lives of those around you. If there is love or a new opportunity on the horizon, it is time to let it in. You are safe and strong and have a clarity that you very likely have never known before. At this time love will grow as never before. Abundance will increase in proportion to your love, and your heart will soar.
Oftentimes we hear the warning to not take things personally. This is not such a time. Take this time, and the joy and abundance that go with it, very personally. It is yours. Sing, laugh, be joyful, and allow yourself to love and be loved, and love yourself. Now is the time to be a cosmic love generator.
