Brief user guide.
Formulate your question for the Yijing (formerly we wrote: I Ching, but the pronunciation remains the same) in the text input box above. This question and the answer given by the Yijing can only be read by you.
The answer from the Yijing appears by clicking the red Answer button or by clicking the three coins image. You see two hexagrams emerge. The left hexagram, the cast hexagram, tells about the situation you are in, about how things are now, the right hexagram, the relating hexagram, tells about which steps you can take to restore or strengthen the harmony. If none of the lines move, there is no relating hexagram, and then you see an image of the Duke of Zhou, who urges you to study the Judgment. By clicking in the hexagram on the buttons 'the Character', 'the Judgment' or 'the Image' the Yijing gives the individual applicable comments.
The changing lines of the cast hexagram are displayed underneath the two hexagrams. If no line moves, then you study the Sign and read the Judgment. All six red lines in the hexagrams can be clicked separately. The red lines are therefore also buttons. Their meaning appears in a new smaller window, which you can close again.
It is possible to ask a new question by clicking on the coins or by selecting 'ask a question' from the menu at the top of the page.
Many parts of the pages on this site are clickable - so feel free explore this site and explore by doing so the ancient database of wisdom that forms the Yijing.
