In the I Ching (易经, Yì Jīnɡ), the amount of yin or yang present in a given situation is represented by the lines making up that situation's hexagram.


A broken line represents Yin (阴, Yīn).


A solid line represents Yang (阳, Yánɡ).

If either a yin or yang line is red, that line is a changing line, which will transform into its polar opposite during the course of your consultation.


A red broken line represents a yin line that transformes into a Yang (阳, Yánɡ)line.


A red solid line represents a yang line that transformes into a Yin (阴, Yīn)line.

Lines in your consultation are determined by each of six coin throws.
