Nothing that the right nourishment won’t fix.

The hexagram means need, as a result of one's resources being exhausted. It could be a need for anything - food, energy, love or stimulation.

The hunger is debilitating and if not addressed could spiral out of control. Effort should be made to find nourishment, even if one is tired, for it is unlikely that the situation will resolve by itself.

There isn’t necessarily any external obstacle to nourishment. While it is possible that one's environment is poor, it may also be that one is hungry amidst a sea of plenty.

The hexagram has meaning for the development of sexual relation. It means hunger for love. One may have enthusiastically embarked on a pursuit of romance but is finding it difficult to engage a suitable partner. Or, if already in relationship, one is separated from one’s partner and longing for togetherness.

Consider exhaustion as an exhalation to be followed by inhalation. The deeper the exhalation, the richer the subsequent inhalation. This illustrates how one can raise one's energies by using a hunger. One can cultivate a stronger motivation for a resolution by longing for it, by fantasising about it or simply by being optimistic .

In the context of sexual relation too, deliberately deepening a longing is a gainful strategy to enrich the eventual meeting. One may cultivate an expectation by teasing, by reminding oneself (or each other) regularly, or by fantasising about the meeting.


There is a need for nourishment of some kind. It is most likely available but is not getting through. Tired as you may be, it is up to you to attend to the need and it is necessary to do so to avoid becoming totally exhausted.

Be aware of the importance of sexual relation.
