Les Sapèques d’or

Jeux divinatoires inspirés du yljing

For the Chinese, divination is a way to order their lives in conformity with the laws of the universe. The eight signs of the zodiac allow practitioners to know who they are, and thus constitute the touchstone of all divination. However, when the time comes to make a decision or to embark on a project, a simple horoscope does not suffice. Other methods must be used, such as the casting of five or six coins, sapèques, and the reading of the future from the pattern of the coins as they land. Jean-Michel de Kermadec explains these methods in his book, referring to oracular Chinese texts and aiming to uncover their true significance and the spirit in which they were written.
