I Ching Methods: Yarrow Stalks vs. Coin Toss
Learn the difference between the two most popular I Ching methods
By Tarot.com Staff
The two best-known methods for consulting the I Ching are the Yarrow Stalk method and the Coin Toss method. Both methods are authentic ways to generate the 64 I Ching hexagrams that provide insight based on archetypal situations, dilemmas and relationships.
That said, manipulating yarrow stalks is kind of a lot of work in this day and age -- it involves dividing 49 yarrow stacks into random piles -- so these days the most popular method of consulting the I Ching has become the three-coin toss method. Simply toss the three coins six times, once each for all six lines of the hexagram. Our authentic online I Ching readings allow you toss your own coins, so you're sure to stimulate insights drawn from your very own intuition.
