Book of Sun and Moon: Traditional Perspectives on Divination and Calculation for the Book of Changes (Two Volumes) by Stuart Alve Olson.

Preorder Books Now

Book of Sun and Moon (Volumes One and Two). These books present the most important tools and information on how to utilize the Book of Changes (Yi Jing). The Book of Sun and Moon, an alternative—though accurate—translation for the title of the Yi Jing, is both a book of divination and calculation. Its use in divination means to apply intuition concerning the oracle of the hexagrams (the 64 images of broken and unbroken yin-and-yang lines). Its ability to calculate and determine possible outcomes for any situation involves examining the logical correlations associated with each of the hexagrams and what images they change into and head toward. So to simply translate the Yi Jing without presenting the associated numerological and image-based logic only serves to limit those who seek to interpret the Book of Sun and Moon in the most accurate and complete sense.
