This app works with: SheepShaver,

After a long search online for a Macintosh I Ching, I came across this beauty. This will be interesting to fans of Synchronicity. The application is available as shareware from the author's website, There are two versions available for download, a non-carbon ready version and a carbonised version. Both versions run well on OS 8.6 and OS 9.0.3 with CarbonLib 1.6 installed under SheepShaver.
Without registration the save and print functions are greyed out. The author provides a link to Kagi marketplace on his web page to purchase a registration code for $20 using a credit card, but I failed to find a purchase link anywhere on the Kagi site.

Edit: Kagi is now dead. is still online, and this I Ching applications has been rewritten to run in a web browser. I have contacted the author who confirmed that the mac applications has come to it's end-of-life years ago, and he kindly provided me with a key. Here is the celebratory gift key to the rare visitor: 914P3202. Thanks Ed.

Here is the website blurb:

The program generates a connexion in seconds, indicating the Actual hexagram, the Future hexagram and the Mediator. Apart fom that, it offers many practical features for the use of the I Ching in more traditional ways.
