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.

IChing/Yi Jing

In our Yi Jing (I Ching) section we have a full reference of the history of the most influential classic of ancient China.

We fully describe both the ancient yarrow stick method of divination as well as the quicker and more modern coin method.

We offer a free, online consultation of the Yi Jing using the ancient method and there is a page explaining the meaning of all the 64 hexagrams.

Hares and Rabbits


Hares and rabbits are put together in Chinese. Hares are associated with the moon as the Chinese saw a 'hare' rather than a 'man' in the moon. The first Chinese moon rover was called Jade Rabbit.
