D is for Divination

Divination for Beginners: Reading the Past, Present & Future (For Beginners (Llewellyn's))Do you wonder what the future holds? Or, more specifically, what your future holds? There are those who believe that we can find out through various methods of divination. Divination can be defined as "the practice of finding answers to questions, through observing natural indicators or signs or through using a variety of techniques to contact natural or preternatural spirits."

When you start to research methods of divination you realize that it isn't a question of what you can do your divining with but what you can't (and that answer would be nothing - and in fact you can divine with nothing). You can use tarot cards, runes, dice, animal entrails (ewww), crystals, bones, sticks -- seriously, just pick up some crap at your house and use that.

Well, you can toss it, observe it, wave it, hold it, dangle it. Yep, just pick some stray piece of crap up and do something with it. Are you feeling your cave dweller roots yet? Sure you are. Now that you've done whatever you wanted to do with that thing, look at it. You are looking for signs, omens, patterns, intuitive knowledge -- something that gives you an idea. It doesn't have to be a clear idea at first, just a general idea. It's like dream interpretation. Use that little seed of an idea and think about what it might mean. Still confused? Pick something else up and do something with it. What you're going for here is attempting to create the random and chaotic, but perceiving the order and patterns that it renders. You may need to throw a lot of crap around. But at the end of it all you will have a deeper understanding of what your future holds.

Our prediction? Your future holds some house cleaning, because now you've got to pick all that crap up.

  1. No way I can predict the future, Sue. I do well to pick out the proper box on the calendar when I'm checking the date.

    See you E-day!

    Best,
