Consulting the Yi Jing (I Ching)
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.
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.

th Apr Avengers film record
The Marvel Avengers film series has been immensely popular in China.
The last film in the franchise (but who is to say there may be more at some stage) 'End Game' attracted over 3 million people on its opening night.
Film makers are looking increasingly to China as a lucrative market for their films. With cinema goers reducing in numbers in most countries due to increased home viewing of films, the Chinese passion for going out to watch movies is an important revenue stream. The film has already made $115 million in China.
Many people queued for hours waiting for the midnight viewing and fans were not disappointed. The film has a very loyal fan-base that has grown steadily since the first film in the series in 2008. The popularity does seem a little strange as there is no Asian lead actors and the setting is very much in the United States.
Unlike films such as 'Bohemian Rhapsody' the Chinese censors have let it through without requiring edits.
