How does I Ching work?

The I-Ching, or Book of Changes, is the world's oldest known book and earliest intuitive decision-making system of any complexity. It is traditionally consulted by tossing coins or yarrow stalks, and ProAstro.com invented a way for a computer to authentically replicate these methods. The way the coins fall corresponds to one of 64 patterns of change derived from the profound wisdom of the ever-changing dynamics of the yin and yang principles.

Consult the I-Ching to gain insights into personal questions and situations, especially changing conditions. I-Ching readings have been used by Chinese sages and emperors for centuries since long before the time of Confucius, who added to the I-Ching's interpretative text almost 3000 years ago. Sincere use of the I-Ching will help you make the right moves at the right time, and know what to expect when you do!

About the Lines

Changing Lines are the part of an I-Ching reading that always gives the most powerful advice about a situation because they represent the factors that are causing things to change right now.

The odds are against casting a Changing Line (about the same as tossing 3 coins and having all 3 come up heads). But most castings of an I-Ching hexagram (i.e. six line form) do produce one or more Changing Lines.

If there are Changing Lines, there is also a second hexagram called "Future" which is created by reversing all the Changing Lines (those marked by a dot at the end) into their opposite -- yin into yang and yang into yin. The Future hexagram is very important because it is the part of an I-Ching reading that predicts the way things are going to go if you follow the advice of the Changing Lines.
