Bite through to success.

The Lines (base to top)

Shackles biting into ankles
Biting into bleeding flesh
Biting into rancid meat
Biting into something hard
Biting into pemmican
Bitter pain of bitten ears


Fire over thunder. Heavy stuff.

The hexagram is the image of an open mouth with an obstacle in the four place that needs to be bitten trhough.

Chew it over.
