In ancient times, the very best practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) were taught Taoist Psychology - the philosophical teachings of Fu Xi, the founder of Trigrams and the I-Ching, given to him during a spiritual moment.
Like astrology, trigrams are how the stars between Heaven and Earth met during your birthdate and the characteristics given.
Each trigram also links to an organ in the body, which gives us greater insight into the mind/body/spirit and how they connect.
What is a Trigram?
We are all made up of Yin and Yang. Some of us are more Yin, others more Yang.
Yin and Yang Symbol
We all know the Yin, Yang symbol. Neither of them are entirely one or the other as neither can exist one without the other. Yin contains Yang and Yang contains Yin – just like you and me.
Yin is a broken line Yang is a solid line
A trigram is made up of three lines. Tri meaning three. If we were to transfer the Yin and Yang into a trigram they would look like this.
All Yin All Yang
What are my trigrams?
Trigrams are calculated from your date of birth and give three numbers (trigrams). This tells us the psychology of the organs and how they operate in relation to you. Your trigrams give you a greater understanding of self. If you would like to know what your trigrams are, you can order a written document explaining them to you.
