Tip of the day:
Think about your question:
Didn't you ask the same question already, in just other words?
We at I Ching Online think it's better to contemplate the answer you already got, instead of casting the coins again.
Very short instruction:You are visiting the online version of the
I Ching, the classic Book-of-Changes.
This is iching.online, with the same functionality for throwing coins and reading the answer as ichingonline.NET, but without
Any vital question you may have, ask it here.
Ask advice about your health, dietary supplements (whether you need any food supplies), medication, your relation, getting rich, or even how to fix your TV set that is broken!
Enter your question in the available textbox, if you want.
(You don't need to, but it helps your concentration on the issue.)
Click "Continue", and throw the coins six times.
"Throw coins virtually" (the program throws for you), or "Throw coins by hand" (and fill in the result yourself).
Click "Read", to read the answer.
The different aspects of the answer to your question are given in four different tabs:
The "Cast Hexagram" explains the situation you are now in, or what has gone before.
The "Changing Lines" (if there are any) are the lines that move into their opposite.
The one of them that applies especially to your question is preselected, but any changing line can be read about if you click on it.
The "Transformed Hex" describes the future situation, after the lines have changed, and if you follow the advice the I Ching has given.
In the "Trigram Symbols" you can read the interpretation of the two Trigrams that the Cast Hexagram is made of.
Click this button to read the original Richard Wilhelm translation for that Hexagram or Changing Line.
Finally, you can copy/paste the same literal question into the I Ching Online "Custom search" at the bottom of the read-page, and be surprised by the results you get.
And from version 3.0 (September 2011) there is a button "Save reading" on every tab.
When clicked, you will be redirected to I Ching Online.NET, where your reading is instantly saved if you are a member already, but if not yet, you can sign up, and your reading will still be saved in the new account you just opened.
Try it out for free and enjoy it!
