The I Ching, or the Book of Changes, is an ancient book of wisdom and guidance—rooted in Daoist and Confucian philosophy—on how to live fully and nobly while managing life’s ups and downs.
This artful, thoughtfully-conceived card deck presents the I Ching as a contemporary guide and oracle, answering questions like: How can I be my best self in any situation? How do I handle a tough conversation with my partner or co-worker? How do I find a fulfilling career?
The I Ching is made up of 64 hexagrams—a combination of six straight and broken lines—that symbolically encompass all of life’s experiences. This relevant, fresh, and accessible deck reimagines the I Ching without archaic vocabulary and confusing metaphors. Just ask a question and then pull a card to access your intuitive voice and be guided on your best path forward.
The I Ching Oracle card box contains:
- 64 hexagram cards in myriad colors with unique patterns inspired by Asian, African, Mayan, and Aboriginal motifs that communicate the energy of each hexagram
- A 100-page color guidebook with information on the I Ching and detailed explanations for each card
- A beautifully designed magnetic-closure book box with a ribbon pull tab for the cards

64 card illustrated directory and guidebook discussing how to use the deck and interprete thev readings
I'll preface this with saying that I have been a lover of I Ching for some 30+ years. I first started it in high school, with the coins and then dice. Over the years I have consulted the I Ching on and off.
The author, Catherine Pilfrey took a difficult and complicated system of divination and made it simple, accessible and fun to use. This is a genius idea. But more than that, this card deck makes the entire process very easy.
The information on the cards is simple, to the point and easy to interpret. The direction on how to use the deck are just as easy. I've collected oracle and Tarot decks since I was a teenager and this one is a great addition.
If you are a lover of oracles, Tarot or I Ching, or simply curious, this deck will for sure become a favorite.
