Rebecca and Bob were not sure whether to buy a new house or just the land upon which they could build a house to their liking. So they asked, “Considering all the pros and cons, is it preferable to buy a new house or just the land?” The response was hexagram 31, “Influence,” attraction, fascination, requesting, making an offer.
In other words, “If you are fascinated by a property, make an offer,” which is the theme of the reading. This theme is not about the type of property. The foremost consideration here is how they should feel about it. Eventually, they found a beautiful piece of undeveloped land in Benicia, with panoramic views and lots of underground water. They felt so attracted to it that they stopped looking, made a bid and bought the property.
