    -The 8 Trigrams and The 64 Hexagrams

    I Ching : is taken from the ancient Chinese "Book of Changes" and it is a form of divinatory practice involving 64 hexagrams (patterns of 6 broken and unbroken lines), which are used in a divinatory way by the throwing of yarrow stalks or coins.

    Below that is a table showing exactly how the 8 Trigrams in row one and column one, come together to form an individual Hexagram. To find out what each Hexagram looks like simply click on the number and you should be able to see using this grid how the upper and lower Trigrams make that Hexagram. To find out the divinatory meaning of each symbol or Hexagram simply click on the symbol or the number in the grid and you will be taken to its meaning. The meanings for the 64 hexagrams come from "Sacred Books of the East, vol. 16 (1899)" translated by James Legge. The explanation of the entire figure is by: King Wăn and the explanation of the six individual lines are by: the Duke of Kâu.
