Our YiJing (I Ching) consultation gives you a reading using the ancient yarrow stick method. You select how the sticks are split by clicking your mouse on the pile, so the choice is not random. It takes three steps to generate each line of your hexagram (gua). After all six lines are built up you will be given an analysis of your hexagram and a link to look up its meaning. Press ‘New Reading’ to start over from scratch.
