Divination procedure

General procedure for I Ching divination (with either sticks or coins)

Write the question simply and clearly.
Draw the six lines of the hexagram from the bottom up.
Mark each line with the number produced by the coins or sticks.

If there are any changing lines a second hexagram must be drawn where the lines with 6 or 9 changes so broken lines becomes straight and vice versa.

If no lines are changing, only the title line of the hexagram is interpreted.

If there are changing lines, (only) the changing lines of the first hexagram and the title line of the following hexagram are interpreted.
