Sorry, but I misplaced my favorite copy copy of The I Ching.
And it's been ages since I used the magic 8 ball (manufactured by Mattel; see Wikipedia) as I grew tired of too many: "Reply hazy ask again later" responses. What a drag!
Still, for you online freaks: http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~ssanty/cgi-bin/eightball.cgi
However as your question is a weighty and important one I resorted to Bibliomancy.
Herein the results:

I can do no more for the uninitiated, but surely the meaning is clear.
