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.

The Taming Power of the Great

In the Judgment associated with the image of The Taming Power of the Great, the oracle says, “Perseverance furthers. Not eating at home brings good fortune. It furthers one to cross the great water.” This means diving into the stream of life. Be unafraid. If you were on the wrong track the oracle would never say “perseverance furthers.” And, “Not eating at home” means getting out into the world, exploring, having adventures. There’s no doubt about the message here.

And in the verse that is highlighted specifically for you by today’s Reading from the image of The Taming Power of the Great, the oracle says, “The headboard of a young bull. Great good fortune.” I spoke above about the mighty oak. Here the metaphor is different. But, the same idea could be applied to my own metaphor. For the oak the headboard is gravity. That’s what makes the oak broad and strong. Gravity. The hippies used to scrawl a good one over the walls, “Gravity Sucks!” How true. But, what holds us back also gives us our substance, our weight, our ability to BE something in the world.

Gravity represents all those things that have caught you up short, the things that “tame” the power that exists within you. If you ever heard that extreme kind of Jazz, at the end of the Bebop era, when the sax just screamed and screamed, playing total chaos at blinding speed, and very loud, then you know what power is when it is NOT tamed. But it couldn’t last. It played itself out. It was exhausted almost before it began.

In short, the oracle is telling you to welcome those things that constrain you in the world as you find it, and also those constraints that you take willfully upon yourself, so that the energy can be channeled like an electric current in a wire. Once good old Ben Franklin harnessed the power of the lightening in his little kite, nothing could stop the “effectiveness” of people. Your power needs to be constrained if it is to be of any use to you.
