Compass Location[edit]

The following Compass Location table transposes the circular arrangement of the hexagrams into a tabular form, where

  1. "GN" represents the Gua Number of a hexagram
  2. "Gua" is the hexagram itself
  3. "English" is the translation of the name of the hexagram
  4. "CN" is the order (Circular Number) of the hexagram, starting from 0 degrees to 360 degrees, on the concentric circle that lists the hexagrams on the Luopan.
  5. "Pinyin" is the transliteration of the Chinese name of the hexagram
  6. "SC" is the name of the hexagram in Simplified Chinese
  7. "Sector" is the sector, measured in degrees from North in a clockwise direction, where the hexagram is found on the concentric circle that lists the hexagrams on the Luopan

The Compass Location table consists of two parts. The first seven columns constitute the first part, and the last seven columns constitute the second part. The central column, consisting of the "~" character, separates Part 1 from Part 2. Part 1 lists all the 64 hexagrams, and Part 2 lists the hexagrams that are opposite in direction to those hexagrams in Part 1, that is, a line drawn from a hexagram in Part 1 to the opposite hexagram in Part 2 (on the same row in the table below) will pass through the center of the Luopan. For example, a line joining hexagram 24 ("Turning Back", in row 01) to hexagram 44 ("Encountering") will pass through the center of the concentric circle.

In Xuan Kong Da Gua, the direction of a hexagram can be either in the Facing Direction or the Sitting Direction. The Facing Direction is always opposite in direction to that of the Sitting Direction. For example, if a compass indicates that the Facing Direction is 5° from North (this is within the sector of the "Turning Back" hexagram, in row 01) then the Sitting Direction will be 185° from North (this is within the sector of the "Encountering" hexagram). Similarly, if the Facing Direction is "Encountering" (in row 33), then the Sitting Direction will be "Turning Back".
