  1. @Ksaar: The Wilhelm/Baynes I Ching responds with Hexagram #57: The Penetrating Wind. You have 1 running line (Yin/6 at line 4) which gives you a changing hexagram of #44: Coming to Meet. Your principal response is Hex #57. The Changing Hex defines an internal movement – not one hex becoming another as is generally mistaken. If you don’t have a copy of the I Ching I would recommend this site to get more detailed information on your hexagrams:

    Hexagram #57 corresponds to The Moon card (water element) in Thoth as well as Strength/Lust card (fire element) in the Mutational Alchemy tarot system (Temporals Arrangement). The internal motion (hex #44) is referencing The Universe card (water element) and the Magus card (fire element) – All *trump cards* so I Ching is responding unilaterally from the Spirit Plane on this question. There are no indications of anything in an Ill-dignified state, Hex #57 is also called *The Gentle* and generally signifies success with a special emphasis on acquiring support as you proceed.

    Much more can always be said but it is usually best if you do some of this followup work yourself to gain a more in-depth understanding.

    Art is not a straightforward path nor an easy route to a living. 5 of Alembics indicates restlessness due to some kind of dissillusionment which brings you to this question.

    I think your higher self may be trying to tell you something and it’s behind all of this confusion…you’ve been pulled off a path you would have been quite alright to follow due to some higher calling. What is it…a better quest, what is it not? It’s not something you’ve fantasized about…but the cards are unclear as to what that is.

    The path you’re being called to is defined by 4 of Staves: Completion, an auspicious sign and you should heed its call. The future indicates involvement in science, with 6 of Blades presenting its offer of Mercury in Aquarius. Communications, technology.

    You clearly love art. is that not enough for you? Think about the answer because the Arts are a bad choice for stability and predictability. You have to sort of fit in where society will let you in any given age.

    Looks like you’re either undergoing, about to undergo a major shift in your consciousness, spirit and clarity. Death sits at 8 in the position of Hod, thus it is a mental Death.

    You’ll need to find out what you will be satisified by because that is what is being offered.

    I think you will take the offer and be quite intrepid about it. Your final outcome card is King of Staves.

    Mutational Alchemy Interpretation: *
    Mutational Alchemy Symbolism: Ravana, (literally “Risen Sun”) King of the Rakshasas, (demons in control of one half of Samsaric universe) is widely regarded as the enemy of Rama, an incarnation of Vishnu. The importance of Vishnu in Indian religious beliefs cannot be overstated – he represents one third of the entire universe, as The Preserver in the balance between The Destroyer and The Creator, or Siva and Brahma respectively. The story of Ravana and Rama, when analyzed correctly and intelligently, reveals the way in which preservation takes place. Ravana is an incarnation of one of the two gatekeepers to Vaikuntha, the realm of Vishnu. When the gatekeepers Jaya and Vijaya arrogantly refuse to allow two very great sages into the realm, because of their humble appearance as children, a result of their very highly developed consciousness, the sages cursed them both in anger. Vishnu attends to the drama, allowing the sages in himself, but is unable to remove the curse, only redirect it. He gives the gatekeepers the choice of being reborn as his greatest devotees one hundred times, or as his greatest enemy only three times. They choose the latter, probably to serve a shorter sentence – the trick in this being that in one of his lives he becomes immortal, and is born as long-lived and powerful half-man half-Rakshasa.
    In his second life, born into ignorance of all of this as Ravana, he begins austerity dedicated to The Creator, Brahma, and after achieving a boon he asks to become invincible to celestial beings, rakshasas, nagas and so forth, but chooses to leave out mortal men who he regards as too pathetic to be a threat. Vishnu incarnate as a human – Rama. After Ravana conquers Lanka, he governs it intelligently and wisely. There is no poverty or hunger in the city. In the process of his war campaigns, he attains the achievement of being Siva’s greatest devotee by accidently angering The Destroyer. In the story he tries to get access to Siva’s abode on the holy Mt. Kailash. Nandi, Siva’s gatekeeper won’t let him pass. To try to impress or annoy Nandi he lifts up Mt. Kailash and disturbs Siva and Parvati. Siva crushes him under the mountain using his little toe. Ravana is trapped under the mountain for years. He composes the famous Siva Tandav Stotram which is a devotional song to Siva and his wife Parvati. Siva is pleased with his severe penance (tapyasa) and awards him with the holy blade Chandrahas “Laughter of the Moon”, warning him that if it is used injustly, it will bring about his doom. Ravana goes on to conquer both human and immortals – both asura and rakshasa over the course of hundreds of years. He commands the rising and setting of the sun and is lord over the three worlds at the time Rama and Sita are born into the world.

    The curse of the sages begins to be fulfilled when Ravana attempts to seduce Vedavati, a beautiful ascetic he finds in a forest performing bhakti yoga to Vishnu in an attempt to win him as a husband. She refuses his advances, and he pulls her hair. She sets herself on fire, promising to return to destroy him as she dies. An important part of this tale is that she does not recognize Ravana as an aspect of Vishnu. She is reborn as Sita and marries Rama, attaining her goal. However, Sita is kidnapped by Ravana, as the darker aspect of consciousness is not willing to let go of its unfulfilled desires. Rama, as the avatar of Vishnu must reclaim her. He kills Ravana, and Jaya’s second incarnation as an enemy of Vishnu is done. The curse has not yet run its course, however. Sita in turn, is refused by Rama, just as she refused Ravana. She is cast out by Rama into the forest, pregnant and alone, abandoned due public opinion against her that she had been raped by Ravana or the Rakshasa guards and was unworthy of being a queen. Later, filled with regret, he welcomes her back to the palace, after learning she has given birth to two boys and has survived the trial. Instead of just recognizing the error of his ways, and leaving her be, he forces her to undergo trial by fire to test her purity. She does so, and Rama opens his arms to embrace her, but she does not go to him, Instead the earth mother cracks open the floor of the palace and takes Sita back into the earth telling Rama he does not deserve her. Neither Ravana nor Rama have the ability to win what they desire.
    Ravana represents the reckless darkness in us all, and the danger such volatile subconscious powers can pose to our lives. The subconscious is a source of great power and knowledge, but it is also capable of destroying us if wielded carelessly. Rama represents justice and karmic repercussions – both for Ravana and for Vedavati/Sita. In the Ramayana, Ravana and Rama are the same consciousness, split by internal contradictions. Neither are allowed to reside in Vaikuntha, the realm of Vishnu, The Preserver, which signifies the lesson this ancient tale is attempting to convey about the nature of metaphysical preservation and how the flaws in the characters do not belong in the heavenly abode, although liberation is promised to all eventually. It warns us not to make the same mistakes the divine characters are making, but it shows us also the path to achieving happiness at the same time. Ravana and Rama represent two parts of kingdom divided in the self.

    Geomantic: Called Via (Latin for *the Way*) in its medieval interpretation, the correct elemental association should define it as a (Mature) Masculine/Creative character corresponding to the qabbalistic Atziluth (Emanation) in the Four Celestial (or Elemental) Worlds. Since the geomantic figure should more properly denote an elemental character, the term Explorator Viae (*Pathfinder*) replaces it here.
    Jungian Parallels:
    Personality Type: Guardian Class / ESTJ (Supervisor) Type
    Supervisor types are responsible and orderly; capable of ruling their world according to the “law of the land” however that may be defined or accepted by them. They are adept at moving an organization forward using concrete facts and logic to make decisions that facilitate a smooth and efficient operation.
