Inner Child I Ching Tarot and Oracle Cards 41-48 by Sacred Square Design

The I Ching and Chakras, Part 6: A New Way To Look At An Ancient Oracle Through A Card Deck

Moving further into the Inner Child I Ching Tarot and Oracle Card Deck with this post. These are the cards for hexagrams 41 through 48. This deck of my own design uses the colors of the seven chakras as background for the yin and yang lines of the hexagrams which are represented by black. The backgrounds are really small little paintings. They were done quickly and in the spirit of finger painting, hence the name Inner Child. I tried to not think too much or judge and these, with a very few exceptions are “first takes”.

As with previous posts on these cards, I’ll supply you with links to the previous cards along with links to both concise and more in-depth interpretations of the I Ching.

Here’s the cards for I Ching hexagrams 41 through 48 of the Inner Child I Ching Tarot and Oracle Card Deck.

The hexagrams of the I Ching are made up of combinations of the eight trigrams. The trigrams are 3 lines. These can be yin (broken) and/or yang (unbroken) lines. The eight trigrams are; Heaven, Earth, Mountain, Lake, Water, Thunder, Wind and Fire. We’ll look at each card’s hexagram.

As always, I encourage to explore the I Ching, or Book of Changes, as it is a most fascinating work of philosophy and divination. As a conduit to intuition and wisdom, it continues to amaze and impress me with each new encounter I have with it.
