I Ching Hexagram 21: Shih Ho - Biting Through

Shih Ho - Biting Through stands for actively dealing with resistance. One needs to bite through the obstacle. As disbalance is present it is of importance that action is undertaken based on proper principles.

I Ching interpretation / The Judgement

If you draw this I Ching hexagram with the online I Ching oracle this means that: either disbalance is created within yourself or that the disbalance is caused by a circumstance from outside. In order to deal with the situation in a proper manner one should stop. Only out of silence will new insights arise.

This sounds contradictory to actively biting through the obstacle. However this is not the truth. Return to silence and understand how this works.

I Ching lines interpretation

The I Ching hexagram consists of six lines. If lines are changing in your online I Ching Oracle consultation these should be included in your I Ching interpretation as well. Furthermore the I Ching lines have their separate interpretation.

The bottom I Ching line deals with reality, that what is. The second line is related to how you connect to others. Cause and effect how do you react?

The third line deals with your emotions and how to cope with them. The fourth line is related to making choices in order to remain on track. The fifth line represents the organising aspect of things.

It involves leadership, following up on ideals and planning. The I Ching top line has to do with spirituality. It concerns your tao, beliefs, religion and more.

First Line - I Ching interpretation

A wise man learns from its first mistake. It is a warning to stop. If the wise man learns good fortune will follow.

Second Line - I Ching interpretation

Not respecting the truth will lead to resistance. One may expect harmless punishment. A just penalty.

Third Line - I Ching interpretation

An old issue is brought to light. As this concerns old material the related punishment arouses anger. Eventually the punisher remains free from blame as it was just at that time.

Fourth Line - I Ching interpretation

Great hindrances are presented. Correction is needed and should be undertaken in a moderate and determined manner. The task will be successfully achieved in the end.

Fifth Line - I Ching interpretation

Be careful not to take action to soon. Observe the situation and let the mystical laws of life work for you.

Sixth Line - I Ching interpretation

Obstinate behavior results in misfortune. One who is deaf to warnings will create embarrassment. Return to humility and stay loyal to your inner truth to escape this situation.

The I Ching hexagram consists of two trigrams. Above Li - Fire and below Chên - Thunder.
