The Yijing 易經 divination is one part of Yijing system in Chinese metaphysics. Yijing system itself can be used for feng shui audit, prediction and even life analysis of a person. In this hub, we are going to give you an example of the divination using a system of Trigrams of Hexagrams. These Trigrams or Hexagrams are symbols made up of straight lines - continuous or broken, to reflect the concept of Yin and Yang in the Universe. The Trigrams are invented by a man called Fu Xi 付羲 who lived around 4.500 B.C., who observed the nature and eventually he inspired to create these symbols to represent and interpret the forces of nature.

In the beginning, there are 8 symbols, called the 8 Trigrams or Ba Gua 八卦. These 8 Trigrams represent the forces of nature as observed by us in everyday life. They are Heaven, Lake, Water, Thunder, Earth, Wind, Fire, and Mountain. Later on, these 8 Trigrams are stacked on each other and it constitute into 64 Hexagrams. Hence they can incorporate into a great variety of readings and meanings.

United States using indirect vote in the election of the President and the Vice President. They cast ballots for a slate of members of the U.S. Electoral College, then they in turn directly elect the President and Vice President. The election occur every quadrennially since 1792.

US Presidential election seems got so many attention from all the world. A lot of people in the world are watching and waiting for this great election. People are hoping for a new change. Several eagerly questions like "Will Barack Obama or John McCain be the 56th President of the United States of America?" or "Who will win on Tuesday November 4, 2008?" comes to my working desk every day before the election.

I'm so curious to know the answer too and also my clients keep asking me about the answer. That is why, I do the Yijing Divination to know who are the winner in the US Presidential Election 2008. I cast the divination on 17th October 2008. The picture below is the result of the I Ching done on that date. Before I proceed, I would like to stress that I don't have any political agenda on this US election 2008, I just simply showing you the example power of the Chinese Divination done with the 3 coins.

Before tossing the coins, I decided to put Barack Obama as the Subject and John McCain as the Object of the Yijing Hexagrams.

The Republican has chosen John McCain, senior Arizona Senator as its candidate, and the Democratic Party has chosen Barack Obama junior Illinois Senator as its candidate. It is the first time an African American was chosen as a presidential candidate for a major party, an oldest and the first woman Vice President in US election.

McCain sits on Power element, which means the Republican is still on power now. Obama sits on Resource element, which means Obama will facing hardship on this US Election (and it is true since the first time).

The Republican who is in power, want to use intelligence way against The Democratic Party, but this action was useless, because the Wood Rabbit conquer back the Earth Ox in the end, and eventually this Ox Earth support the Metal Monkey (Subject line - Democratic Party or Barrack Obama).

The Republican companion also do some action against the Democratic Party, but again this action was nullify because its action change into Earth Ox and this Earth Ox conquer back the Water Pig (Republican Companion).

Obama campaign about Money (Horse Fire), and this Horse Fire change into Earth Ox which will support back Obama (Metal Monkey). It means the CHANGE campaign and resolution for US crisis (Money element), will gain support and I conclude that Obama will be the 44th President of United States of America.

Metal Monkey clash with the Day Wood Tiger, but the Month Earth Dog support the Metal Monkey, which means in short term, Obama will be having trouble, and in the end he can gain control of all these troubles.

This is just my prediction on 44th US Presidential Election base on the I Ching Divination. Every one is welcome to give a comment on it.

Real result in life that Barack Obama become the 44th President of U.S.A.
