The meaning of the name of this book, Yi,
is still unresolved. A sacrifice for change -
either for the sun, for the moon, or
in the night.

   From sundial GUI to
   hexagram GUA

 Use this YiJing (I Ching) together with a good traditional translation! Wilhelm, Lynn, Balkin, Legge, Blofeld (or Bradford, see below!), to name some. Shop at Amazon.com!

I made this one because many possibilities cannot be found anywhere, so I add them here, searching for the wide range of meanings, rather than making a perfect translation.

  I changed the name of this website (it was Book of the Moon). The character YI is not a picture of the moon, but the name of an ancient sacrifice - to the sun! Its ideogram is the sun emerging from behind a cloud (see Stephen Marshall 'The mandate of heaven', and the dictionary 'Le Grand Ricci'). Its original meaning was the change of weather, later encompassing all changes.
  Latest find: no sun or moon at all in the character 'Yi'... See here.
  Since there are also clues for an ancient calendar system, I will not discard the idea of the moon. The duration of 13 lunations is 13 x 29,53 = 383,89 days. The Yijing has 384 yao, hexagram lines.
  (Marshall's book and his website are extremely valuable for everyone who seriously studies the Yi-jing. http://www.yijing.btinternet.co.uk/ or http://www.biroco.com/yijing/index.htm )
