In Taiwan, it is common to go to the temple and ask the gods for advice when facing a difficult or life-changing decision. The tossing of divination blocks, in Taiwanese called “bwa-bwei,” can help answer questions depending on whether they land face up, face down, or both. Taiwanese people also draw fortune sticks, where the number you draw corresponds to paper fortunes slips with the answers you seek.
Do you have a question you’ve been unsure about? Would you like advice for your near future? Check out our online version of Fortune Sticks and Divination!
