Taijitu as a mnemonic for LuoShu

While the LuoShu (3×3 magic square) is simple to memorize by itself, one visual trick to remember the layout of the nine numbers is the Taijitu (yin-yang symbol). Write down the numbers from one to nine following the swirling pattern then exchange two and eight.

One to four belong to the shadow, while six to nine are on the sunny side.
