With the year turning towards Samhain, and the theme for next months meeting being Divination, I thought I would see if I could start the ball rolling with a simple question & a little bit of self information…
Please join in & add your own answer 🙂
What are your favourite divination tools & why?
My personal favourite divination tools are my bones. I’ve been reading bones for
quite some years now & have 13 crow bones, which I use in conjunction with
a collection of other natural items, shells, seeds, teeth, coffee beans etc…
(Depending on the reading).
I’m drawn to them for many reasons, their texture, smell, shapes, sizes and the fact that
they still maintain the essence of the creature which they came from.
However I have been collecting different forms of divination for a long time, ever since
I was a child, in fact, my collection started with a ‘Book of Fortune’ which
was passed down through my family & is used with a deck of normal playing
cards, along with this old book, I also inherited a set of cigarette cards, ‘Black
cat fortune telling cards’. The set is loosely based on Gypsy Witch cards,
which incorporate common playing cards & fortune cards combined.
These are amongst my favourite divination tools, yet due to their age & history I do
not use them on a regular basis, as you can imagine.
Amongst my other favourite tools, I frequently use: Anglo Saxon Runes, Witches Runes,
my pendulum & a set of 9 sea smoothed stones which were collected from the
coast of Mexico & were a gift from a close friend.
Stones & Bones have been around for countless years, yet each reader develops a system personal to them, working in harmony with what nature provides freely.
