The Images (Hexagrams) of the I Ching Oracle in Psychic Readings

Psychic Readings from The Psychic Internet often feature images drawn from the I Ching Oracle. To offer supplementary information about these images for our clients, and for the public, we have provided this archive of brief articles.

The abstract images of the I Ching Oracle (usually called "hexagrams") symbolize all of the related and interacting aspects of reality. In the following excerpts from actual Psychic Readings, the images of the I Ching are discussed.

Biting Through

In our Reading for you today, we see the signs of a momentous change in your life, arising from a decision that you are now called to make. The best expression of this idea, in a general form, may be seen in the image of Biting Through, which we have drawn for you from our Chinese Oracle, the so called I Ching, or Book of Changes. In the so-called Judgment verse that has been associated with this image from very ancient times, the oracle says, “Biting through has success. It is favorable to let justice be administered.” And in the central verse associated with the image of Biting Through, the oracle says, “Thunder and lightning: the image of Biting Through. Thus the kings of former times made firm the laws through clearly defined penalties.”

Let me emphasize the idea that “law” pertains to your situation. It is “Divine Law,” in the sense of regularity in Nature, the logic of cause-and-effect, by virtue of which good finds reward, and sin finds punishment.

In the image of Biting Through, you are shown how you need to go about removing obstacles to progress. Quite literally, the image describes the jaws, and something obstructing their coming together. In this way, the oracle describes figuratively obstacles to unity, for the closed mouth is a symbol of unity. Unity is the result of biting through obstacles, and, obviously, this is explicitly expressed in today’s Reading by the transformation of the image of Biting Through into the image of Gathering Together.

Let me put all of this in words that refer specifically to your particular situation. You have a capacity for true fulfillment in the giving and receiving of love in your relationships. Think of this as the “law” of your God-given nature as an individual in this lifetime. However, one particular relationship in your life at this time has developed into an obstacle to the fulfillment that I’ve referred to, and removing that obstacle therefore constitutes an administration of the “law” of your being.

A “law” could be thought of as a “measure” of right and wrong. In fact, we call the tool of measurement a “ruler”, which is a material expression of the law by which things are measured. Thus, everything we do may be measured against the Moral Law of the Universe. Nothing less than this is called for in your situation, for it is necessary first for you to measure the right and the wrong of the obstructing relationship that I referred to in the last paragraph, and then to remove it.

In the image of Biting Through, the idea of action is paired with the idea of clarity of mind. Laws have to be administered in perfectly rational ways, according to objective measures of their effect in the world. The only laws we are concerned with here are the laws of your own being that point toward perfect happiness and fulfillment. Another way of expressing this is to say that your God-given NEEDS are the measure of the rights and wrong of the relationship in question.
