How are hexagrams produced?

The app lets you produce a hexagram either manually, or automatically using your device. The device can produce a hexagram based on your physical actions, such as shaking the device to toss the coins, or dividing a pile of yarrow stalks with your fingers. Your device’s accelerometer, the position of your fingers, and the present moment in time each play a role in producing a hexagram. You decide how you and the device play a role by choosing an oracle method:

  • Quick—your finger to tap
  • 3 coin—the accelerometer while you shake
  • 4 coin—the accelerometer while you shake
  • 3 dice—the accelerometer while you shake
  • Yarrow—your two fingers to separate a pile of yarrow stalks
  • Circle of Protectors—your finger to tap
  • Mandala—your finger to tap
  • Manual—you manually specify each line value
