For the Path reading, one asks for suggestions how to behave properly to achieve a desired result. The Current column represents how the reader has been acting, and the Suggestedcolumn suggests how they should act to achieve a certain goal. The chart-like spread uses the standard three levels: Rational, Emotional, and External Stance (how one projects oneself outwardly). When comparing the Current and Suggested tiles, the most important thing is to notice the differences between the two tiles. It is these differences which hint at the behaviours that should be altered.
Tile #1 is the significator, the tile which should reflect the nature of the query and/or the desired outcome.
Tile #2 shows the way the reader is and has been thinking. Tile #7 suggests how to change the way one thinks to serve themselves better.
Tile #3 suggests the reader's emotional attitude. Though it may seem difficult to manipulate one's own emotions, it can be done if one puts their mind to it. For example, acting a certain way such as smiling intently for a few minutes will lead the emotions to follow. When a person tries this, as silly as the exercise seems, they find this to evoke the emotion of happiness. For this reading, one should try to make themselves feel the way that Tile #6 suggests.
External Stance means how one acts outwardly, how they hope others see them. Tile #4 is about how the reader has been acting, while #5 indicates how they should act outwardly, for other people's sake. It is the differences between these tiles that hint at what behaviour patterns should be altered.
Your Path Reading
The Peach tile represents the female spirit in its purest form. Where the Peach tile appears, it is likely a woman or possibly a young girl will play an important role in outcome of your reading.
Symbol: The Woodcutter
The Woodcutter employs three of the five elements central to Chinese philosophy: Fire, Wood and Metal. He is ambitious and full of drive and energy. He represents gain and success through dedicated work.
The Unicorn tile indicates a clear vision of the future and the ability to see people for who they really are. In rare cases the Unicorn tile may suggest a person with psychic powers.
Symbol: Lotus Flower
The Lotus Flower tile represents birth or rebirth. On a spiritual level it may indicate you are about to reach new heights in your understanding of your place in the cosmos. Physically it may suggest a child is coming, or a new project is about to emerge. The Lotus Flower tile also speaks of regeneration, and may indicate a time of recovery from hardship; a new beginning.
The Pearl tile denotes the attainment of wealth and a life of luxury. The task will be to balance the spiritual self with the physical self.
Current External Stance
The Carp tile indicates the attainment of inner-peace, tranquillity, and freedom from the pressures of everyday life. Contentment will be realised. The Carp's vibrant colours suggest a rich life. This may mean the coming of material and/or spiritual wealth.
Suggested External Stance
The Knot tile represents both bonding and severing. If the Sword tile (2 Wan) is in your reading then the time to sever ties with someone or something is at hand. Conversely if the Duck tile (2 Bamboo) is in your reading then there is bond that will strengthen. If both appear in your reading, then you have a relationship of some kind that is of undecided value.
