According to Carl Jung:
“…it is not for the frivolous minded and immature; nor is it for intellectualists and rationalists. It is appropriate only for thoughtful and reflective people who like to think about what they do and what happens to them-a predilection not to be confused with the morbid brooding of the hypochondriac.” C.G.Jung page xxxiii Zurich 1949. On Page xxv he refers to a previous translation by Legge (p41) and refers to ” the “spiritual agencies” acting in a mysterious way, that make the yarrow stalks (or coins) give a meaningful answer. These powers form, as it were, the living soul of the book…a sort of animated being, the tradition assumes that one can put questions to the IChing and expect to receive intelligent answers.”xxvi
Book of Changes is similar to doing Tarot and Astrological Predictions. The archetypes are what is represented and according to the above description; there are spiritual agencies at work. The significant difference I think with I Ching is that it takes literally years if not decades to really “get” it. Even then, what you think you “got” had even deeper or more obvious, as the case may be, meaning. I am using these decades of study in this way. I would not offer it otherwise. I know a lot of readers are out there of all persuasions; tarot, astrological, angel cards, astro-tarot etc. You would assume that those who are offering these services for money actually are worth the effort to make the money pay the money and live with the reading. That’s what it boils down to. You must use discernment in all things even in hiring readers to give you the occult situations and hidden emotions that you need to know about. It isn’t for luxury or to find out the next fashion trend anymore. I think people know the times are serious and genuinely need some indication of what is going on so they can proceed intelligently.
