I Ching Symbols

There are several variations in i ching divination techniques.

Nowadays especially in the west we prefer to use coins, interpretating the I Ching based on the number of heads or tails that occur (sometimes people prefer to use chinese coins). Those of a more dedicated nature prefer to use Yarrow stalks - a much more recognised ancient form of divining. Below I will describe the process of both the coin method and the yarrow stalks.

Chinese I Ching Coins

IChing Coin DivinationTo divine using coins first you will need 3 coins, a sheet of paper and a pen.
The three coins are cast and a note is made to whether they are heads(yang) or tails(yin), this is carried out 6 times to obtain our six line hexagram.
Each of the lines is checked for the dominant face, the lines are then read from the bottom up as this is the traditional way of writing chinese characters (it follows the natural order of things always growing from the ground upwards).
