The hexagram here is referred to as the "Biting Hexagram". It comes with Li gua and Zhen gua . This hexagram signifies successful progress in the current unfolding situation, portrayed as a symbolic act of breaking down illusions between the corners of the mouth - imagine bitting something, and things breakdown. The "illusions" here, refer to false or misleading beliefs, perceptions, or ideas that one may hold about themselves, others, or the world around them. Perhaps, an illusion might be the belief that success is only achieved through flawlessness, or that one must conform to societal expectations to be accepted. These illusions can hinder personal and collective progress by creating barriers, limiting perspectives, and preventing individuals from seeing the truth of a situation. Not only that, it will hinder the ability to form authentic connections with others.

This hexagram conveys a profound lesson : balance can only be achieved by eliminating obstacles and extremes. In the context of life, clinging to illusions and the idea of right and wrong obstructs progress. Biting Through advises dispelling these illusions, as life naturally reorganizes by breaking down barriers to growth.

If you find yourself too engrossed in your inner world (The Well), ie over analysing things, this hexagram urges action even if you feel unprepared. Tho, caution is given against creating false realities. What can be done is to prioritize clear communication. In times of difficulty , solutions can only emerge when you speak up and honestly assessing others' actions become paramount during Biting Through. It values clarity over wishes, turning oppression into positive transformation. Biting Through, like a storm, unravels assumptions, clearing the path for open communication and dispelling illusions.

Following are the few things that you can do based on the hexagram for the month:

  1. Dispel Illusions for Growth:
