Three Coins

DIVINATION BY THREE COINS:

(With Chinese coins tails have two characters

heads have four characters)

 

Heads is 2, Tails is 3.

Shake the three coins and throw them down.

Count the result.

You will get a total of  6, 7, 8 or 9.

The first line at the bottom is thrown first,

Then the second line, then the third, then the fourth, then the fifth

and finally the sixth at the top.

 

Line 1: Throw the coins and add the result.

Heads     Heads    Tails

2      +     2      +    3       =   7

If the total of the three coins is 6 or 8 then it is a broken line.

If the total of the three coins is 7 or 9 then it is a solid line.

 

If the total is 6 then it is a broken line that is about to change.

It is drawn with an x in the centre

If the total is 8 then it is simply a broken line but it is not about to change.

If the total is 9 then it is a solid line that is about to change.

It is drawn with an O in the centre

If the total is 7 then it is simply a solid line but it is not changing.

Throw line 1 first:                   Heads     Heads    Tails

2      +     2      +    3       =   7      

 

Then line 2:                             Tails        Tails    Tails

3      +     3      +    3       =   9        

 

Then line 3:                             Tails        Tails    Tails

3      +     3      +    3       =   9     

 

Then line 4:                             Tails        Heads    Tails

3      +     2      +    3       =   8      

 

Then line 5:                             Heads     Heads    Heads

2      +     2      +    2       =   6      

 

Then line 6:                             Heads        Tails    Tails

2      +     3      +    3       =   8      

 

 

Line 6:       8    =    

Line 5:       6    =    

Line 4:       8    =    

Line 3:       9    =    

Line 2:       9    =
