# Rotating

This is an Australian version of the rotating Y that I learned at EJC 2010 in Jonesuu, Finland. It can be juggled on a four count, but it's easier when juggled on a six count. (A five count pattern is also possible). The starting positions and first pass are shown below:

This is a normal Y pattern and if you're feeling lazy, you could stay in these positions and make the same passes all day. However a rotating Y is more fun!
After the first pass the jugglers have five self throws to move to the positons where they'll make their next pass. The arrows below show how they move:

The second pass is shown in the next figure:

The third pass is shown in the next figure:

The fourth pass is shown in the next figure:

This is just like the first diagram except rotated by a half turn.
