Tips for beginner witches

Where to start? This is the most common question i receive. I understand how overwhelming the craft can be! There are so many different components, and you can rest knowing your education will NEVER be complete. You will continue to learn new things all the time, and there is no rush to the order in which you learn! Cool down, and take some time to really fall into theory before jumping into practice. Its very important to read as much as you can, from as many sources as possible. Here are some of the many things you can research:

  • Crystals & their uses
  • Color correspondences
  • Different kinds of Magic
  • Different kinds of witches
  • Tools
  • Moon Phases
  • Planets/Celestial Bodies
  • Witch History
  • Herbs & their uses
  • Plants that are naturally abundant in your area that you can use in magick
  • Energy
  • Meditation and Visualisation
  • Astral Projection
  • Deities
  • Tarot cards and other forms of divination
  • Symbols (runes, sigils)
  • Theban alphabet 
  • Incense and Oils
  • Animals and what they represent
  • Sabbats
  • Cleansing, charging and consecration of tools
  • making mundane things magical

There are so many more things, so feel free to add in anything I missed or that you personally find important.

Witchlings, please ask me any questions you may have as i am happy to answer to the best of my knowledge. I will be putting up more educational posts over the next few weeks, so please ask or message me if theres anything specific you’d like me to cover. I’ll more than likely have a post for each of the bullet points above.

Blessed be!

FAQ

If you are new to the blog and are looking for any information regarding how to learn Korean, travel, or resource material, please refer to my Korean Resource Masterpost and my Self Study Guide.

If your question is grammar related, please check to see if it has been answered. If not, please feel free to ask!

Inbox Rules:

1) I don’t do translations - Translations are not the focus of this blog, and since I receive so many of them, it is impossible to keep on top of. So for this reason, any translation requests in my inbox will be deleted from now on - no exceptions. I apologise for the inconvenience.

2) I will delete repeated questions - By this, I just mean that sometimes I have more than one of the same question in my inbox at the same time. So I will keep the question that was asked first, and delete any repeats within my inbox. So if I don’t specifically answer your question, but I release an answer with a similar question, you’ll know why I didn’t respond. However, if you still have something left unanswered, feel free to specify and send me another ask and I’ll do my best to respond.

3) I will link - If I receive a question that has been answered before, I will just do what I normally do and link to other posts that help to answer the question! So don’t worry if you ask something that has been asked before - I am more than happy to link you to the answer, since I know phone users especially can’t navigate my posts easily. ^^

4) Ask box only - If you have a Korean related question, please enquire through my ask box and not my messages. Thank you.

Those are really the only four rules. Thank you for understanding!

Do you use any other social media?

I have an Instagram for Korean Idioms, and another Instagram for all my vocabulary study cards! I also have a Twitter for updates! And a Memrise for vocabulary!

How long have you been studying Korean?

Honestly, not long! I’ve only been dabbling in the language since late October 2015.

Do you self study?

Yes. I try to dedicate at least four hours a week into learning grammar and vocabulary.

What is your native language?

My mother tongue is English!

What is your name?

Most people call me Elle (pronounced Ellie)! My real name is Emily.

Will you add audio to your study cards?

I did consider making audio for the pronunciation, however I came to the conclusion that the quantity of vocabulary I’m supplying each week is already being juggled on top of university work. So making videos or audio would only increase the work and provide difficult to keep up. Although, I’m not completely dismissing the idea, so I’ll see what happens!

Will you add romanisation to you study cards?

I personally don’t think that romanisation is necessary, and quite often, it seems to be that learners can find it restrictive. This is mainly due to the fact that it can actually inhibit proper pronunciation and hinder reading fluency. Romanisation also has the habit of contradicting advanced pronunciation rules, and for these reasons, I don’t like to include it. I also had an open discussion with most of you about adding it - and it seems that a majority would dislike me to include romanisation. I apologise for the inconvenience.

Am I allowed to save the study card you’ve made?

Of course. That’s why I make them! ;) However, I do not allow the re-uploading of any of my flashcards without first asking permission. I put time and effort into these study cards, and it’s upsetting to see my work posted without proper credit.

Why did you start learning Korean?

I love language, and have dabbled in many! I decided to learn a language completely different to anything I’ve learnt before, so I picked Korean randomly. I fell in love with it, and from there I’ve found a secret passion for Korean drama!

What other languages have you studied/know?

I have studied German, French, Russian, Japanese, and have recently just started to learn Danish. Although, Korean has been the most fun!

“As Above, so Below” and Manifestations of Planets in Astrology

Astrology (and many other divination arts) works on a very old, very basic principle: as above, so below. This is an ancient phrase often heard in earth worshiping religions, but it brings up a question; why are things above are they so below? Aren’t “above” and “below” in different places for a reason? The answer to this is both yes and no.

“As above so below” is an image, two different planes that are parallel to each other have the same events at the same time. Things that happen up top also happen down below. Now, in astrology, this is quite literal with the motions of the planets above mirroring the events on Earth, but the applications go further. “As above, so below” could easily be “As within, so without”, changing the vertical plane of the sky and earth to a horizontal plane, the individual and their surroundings. The Universe is both complete chaos and perfect structure, but how we see it depends on how we’re trying to observe it. To people who do not believe in astrology (or tarot or palm reading or runes or any other fortune telling art) there isn’t a link between the motions of the planets and the emotions and realities we experience, but if you learn how to read the signs, anything from the leaves in a tea cup to cards on a table can reflect our futures and lives. The extent to which only depends on the reader.

In astrology in particular, I’ve noticed that as a result of this, there are almost always two manifestations of a planet: one that is internal and one that is external. For example, the Moon manifests both as what we need emotionally to feel secure (internal) AND how we perceive our mother (external). In any kind of reading, it is important to recognize both “as above, so below” as why our divination tools work, but also to read with “as within, so without” to accurately read the whole picture of why an individual is experiencing a certain situation.

Here is a quick-reference for internal vs external manifestations of planets. This is not a complete list but should offer a clearer look into how we experience them. The sign tells us HOW we experience these things and the house tells us WHERE we experience these things. *Note: aspects and Rx planetary motions also affect how we experience these planets.

The Sun External: The Father, our ideology, what we get attention for and want to show people.

The Sun Internal: What makes us feel happy to be alive, ego, importance.

The Moon External: The mother, fast reactions, being nurtured.

The Moon Internal: Feeling nurtured or not nurtured, security, emotions.

Mercury External: Information sharing, communication, siblings.

Mercury Internal: How we observe something, how we intellectually perceive something.

Mars External: Competition, conflict, rivals.

Mars Internal: Drive, excitedness, passion, anger.

Venus External: Objects, our bodies, food, money.

Venus Internal: Ownership, value as perceived by us.

Ceres External: Routines, what is real, how we receive/give physical care.

Ceres Internal: Existential security, a sense of order.

Juno External: Relationships, partners, what we do to support somebody.

Juno Internal: Sense of belonging to a partnership, dependence, caring for a partner.

Jupiter External: Travel, education, new things, morals, lucky breaks.

Jupiter Internal: The “aha” moments, things making sense, feeling lucky.

Saturn External: Restrictions, authority figures, rules, failure

Saturn Internal: Depression, worthlessness, frustration, patience, achievement.

Uranus External: Disruptions, calamities, rebellions, causes, inventions, friends, machines.

Uranus Internal: Dissociation, a desire to solve problems, a sense of wanting better and easier methods.

Neptune External: Dreams, altered states of mind, magic, the supernatural, being lost.

Neptune Internal: despair, ecstasy, feeling lost, wonder, numbness.

Pluto External: Death, major life-altering changes, endings.

Pluto Internal: Completion, loss, “the end”.

If you have any questions, please let me know so I can clarify further. Chances are, somebody else has the same question but if nobody asks nobody gets an answer. If you found this helpful or think somebody else would, republish it and be sure to subscribe for more astrology posts.

My depression has been taking over since school started last week. I’ve been dealing with a lot of highs and lows and I wanted to incorporate my Tarot practice into the mix. I wanted a Tarot spread to help me cope. Sometimes all I really need is a reminder that throughout the day I achieved something even if it is something small. This is how The Reminder Tarot spread came to be.

Position One: The Good
How did I do good Today?

This one card spread was created to remind me that I did my best and that that is enough. Sometimes my best is just getting out of bed, it could be making a small difference in someone else’s life, while other times it is answering a really long e-mail I’ve been putting off or going throughout my day managing my anxiety the best I could. No matter the reason, I wanted a Tarot spread that I could easily do and one that would provide me with some positive feedback on my day.

anonymous asked:

My apologies for not being specific on the tarot question. I'm starting on this practice so informational and spread blogs is what I'm looking for, but tarot deck art and daily readings blogs sounds interesting, too! If you have time and energy to recommend me some of those, of course. Thank you again :)

Okay, I will do what I can to direct you to decent blogs, but my PC is slow and it takes forever to load Tumblr blogs. I follow only a few myself, so I’ll just be using the Tumblr search function and giving you a few.

Spreads

Spreads but Other Things Too

Honestly, searching the tag [“tarot spreads”] on Tumblr will bring up a lot of stuff, you can go through that to find more blogs of that variety. Most of the blogs that post tarot spreads also post a lot of other things, so trying to fond blogs exclusively for spreads is a bit difficult.

I also have a [#tarot spreads] tag on my blog, and one over at [thesigilwitch].

General Tarot Blogs
(also likely post spreads)

I also have a [#tarot] tag that has some good beginner info.

If anyone else has blogs that fall under these categories, please feel free to comment or reblog!

B11 // “Your hand is in my personal space. Not that I mind.”

Ahh yes I am!!  I’ve had more time for writing and I’ve been feeling more inspired lately, so, here I am.  ^ ^

“What are you doing?”

You continue carding your fingers through Kyungsoo’s silky black hair, completely bypassing his fuzzy ears because he only likes them touched on certain occasions.

“Petting you,” you answer.  You’re just lucky he didn’t hide himself all the way under the bed or else you wouldn’t be able to reach him.  Your arm is already stretched out as far as it can go.  “I’m sorry for earlier, Soo.  I didn’t know that you were saving those last two cookies for Jongin and Chanyeol.  I’ll help you make another batch if you like.”

“Your hand is in my personal space.”  Frowning, you cease petting Kyungsoo and try to take your hand away, but a strong grip on your wrist stops you.  “…But I don’t mind it too much.  Just make sure you get the super expensive chocolate chips this time.”

You rest your cheek on the hardwood floor, smiling when Kyungsoo peeks his head out, ears twitching.

“Of course.  Whatever you want, Soo.”

anonymous asked:

okay so idk if anyone talked about this but, when I was looking at the 2016 calendar for tg on "lost item day", on hide's hat there's a 7 and on his shirt seems to be a 5. so I looked up the tarot cards and they were called, "the chariot card" and "the heirophant card" ??? What do you think

I actually haven’t seen this mentioned before, but I find it interesting because the Hierophant is something that’s been associated with Hide previously.

I don’t think that’s a seven, though. I think that’s just supposed to be the 1 on his hat, which also holds some tarot symbolism, but we all know about Hide and the Magician.

Here’s a closeup on that 5 in case you didn’t catch it.

The other time that Hide was associated with this number was in this panel in chapter 133.

@sans-san​ talked about this a bit in this post. I’ll quote the part of that post that’s about the reverse hierophant specifically. (Keep in mind, this is kind of an old post.)

We all know Hide is usually associated with Major Arcana Tarot card number 1: the Magician, but this time around it’s a

reversed number 5: the Hierophant

.  Here are some of the characteristics (lazily copied from the Internet) of a reversed 5 and how I think they correspond to Hide’s current situation:

Reversed: Restriction, challenging the status quo

—“The Hierophant reversed indicates that you are feeling restricted or constrained by structure and rules, and as a result, you have lost a lot of flexibility and control in your life.” – Hide realized the outcome of Kaneki’s situation isn’t in his hands. He may have pulled some strings up until now but he doesn’t have the power to decide whether Kaneki lives or dies.

—“The Hierophant reversed is about breaking the rules and challenging the status quo. You no longer accept the rigid structures, tradition and dogma surrounding you. You want to challenge ideas and concepts that you once thought of as written in stone.” — I’m pretty sure Hide wouldn’t feel right about a system that will decapitate his best friend, who isn’t even at fault for becoming a ghoul and was a victim of the circumstances. Hide begins to see the flaws in the organization and how it isn’t acting completely rightfully, viewing all ghouls as monsters with no emotions. And he wants to change that. That is why he fights for saving Kaneki and does the unthinkable – making a ghoul play an active part as investigator in CCG.

— “The reversed Hierophant can sometimes reflect societal or group pressure. You are being forced to conform but you do not agree with the fundamental belief systems.” — Hide being forced by the CCG into a certain role in the plan involving Kaneki. The only way he can help him is by leading him to Arima.

— “Perhaps things are not the way they seem and changes need to be made.” — Okay, this one is just for fun, but Bureau Director Hideyoshi Nagachika in the future sounds perfect. If Ishida Sui actually lets Hide and Kaneki have a happy ending, with them working in CCG together, i wouldn’t mind at all.  Those two can really change worlds (Hide made CCG investigators trust him incredibly quickly and Kaneki helped changing the ghouls he met for better) and create a new system that is fairer to both sides, with both ghouls and humans fighting together and respecting each other as equals.

His whole life (at least from the time he met Kaneki as a child) Hide knew how to work his way around obstacles and manipulate the situation to his advantage (making that kid from school stop bulling Kaneki, making Ken’s aunt promise to never again try to throw out his books in the novel, charming his way into the CCG (from “part timer-kun” he quickly became “Hideyoshi”), saving Kaneki in the raid). But in the end, by striking a deal with the higher ups for Ken’s sake, he bound himself to play by somebody else’s rules and to follow someone’s orders. The last number we saw on him wasn’t 1, it was a reversed 5. Right now Hide has his hands tied and he can’t act on his own. When will he be able to become The Magician again? Probably when Haise regains his memories. Hide lost his status as The Magician because of Kaneki but will probably also regain it because of Kaneki. Pretty neat Ishida.

I also wrote a bit of an analysis on Hide and the hierophant back in 2015, but I was fifteen years old then so I think I’ll take another shot at reiterating and adding onto what fifteen-year-old me observed.

Since the five on the calendar page seems to be upright, I’ll take a shot at analysing the standard hierophant card. Here’s an interpretation taken from Wikipedia about the symbolism on the card itself.

In many modern packs, the Hierophant is represented with his right hand raised in what is known esoterically as the blessing or benediction, with two fingers pointing skyward and two pointing down, thus forming a bridge between Heaven and Earth reminiscent of that formed by the body of The Hanged Man. The Hierophant is thus a true “pontiff”, in that he is the builder of the bridge between deity and humanity.

The Hierophant being the central pillar symbolises the Hierophant bridging heaven to earth.

I find this description very reminiscent of Hide’s primary tarot card, the Magician.

The magician is actually also associated with being a bridge between humans and spirits.

The Magician is the bridge between the world of the spirit and the world of humanity. His right hand holds a staff raised toward the sky and his left hand points to the earth.

As per usual, I’d like to tie this back to the theory @glittery-meme-rabbit​ and I wrote about Hide being the 2nd OEK. This interpretation certainly supports that since it could be interpreted as a symbol of Hide helping bridge the gap between humans and ghouls, just as the Hanged Man does (as mentioned earlier), the Hanged Man being associated with Kaneki.

As a side note, the hierophant also wears a crown. Take from that what you will ¯\_( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)_/¯

Back to the actual symbolism of the Hierophant, these are the words most commonly associated with the card.

Education — Knowledge — Status quo — Institution
Leadership — Discipline — Maturity — Formality
Deception — Power RespectDuality
Social convention — Belief system — Group identification
Experience — Tradition — Naïve

A few words there definitely stand out to me, firstly “leadership”, “power” and “respect” definitely stands out to me since I mentioned the possibility of Hide being the second king.

However, another word pops up there which I’ve been discussing on my blog in regards to Hide recently; “duality”.  Here are some posts I’ve made on Hide’s duality already. [x] [x] [x] [x]

Duality is also another theme we can link back to the magician.

The Magician’s robe is white, symbolising the purity and innocence found in the Fool but his cloak is red, representing worldly experience and knowledge. In the bed of flowers at his feet this duality is repeated in the mix of pure white lilies and thorny red roses.

These two contrasting characteristics seem to reflect quite well on the two sides to Hide that we can observe; the naïve, clueless mask he puts on and the other side of him which is actually very intelligent, cunning and experienced.

This post is getting long now so I just want to wrap up with another observation. In the calendar page, Hide is standing beside Touka, who is commonly associated with the High Priestess.

The number 5 tarot card (Hierophant) can also be called the Pope, or the High Priest, and is the male counterpart to the High Priestess.

I’m not sure what to make of that, and I’m kind of tired so I think I’ll leave this analysis at that. If you have any additional thoughts, please feel free to add onto this.

The Chosen One Sneak Peek 2

@burkygirl put me in pickle she requested ONE COOL THING: Quote from an up-coming WIP…she requested something from my @mores2sl story…

She found him staring up at the sky.

“Peeta,” Katniss called feeling awkward, not sure how she was supposed to say.

“Katniss,” Peeta smiled.

“I ah,” Katniss stammered. She rubbed the back of her neck, how did she do this to speak to someone, become their friend.

“I know that you’re upset with me over your father, my brother was out of line the other night at the banquet. He shouldn’t have said those things,” Peeta rested his hand on his sword. His head lowered, “If you give me a chance, we can move past this, become friends.”

Katniss gave him a small smile, “I’m not good with words.”

”I am, at least I think I am.”

Katniss laughed, and his face lit up, he also laughed. They ended up walking in the forest by the end they were holding hands. It felt so good, and she felt her heart beat fast. She didn’t understand the goings on in her being. He made her nervous, but at the same time, she wanted to be next to him. “You have a heavy tread when you walk that is,” Katniss blurted out her observation out of nowhere.

“You hardly make a sound. Is that how you catch your prey? ”

“My father taught me,” Katniss sat on a downed branch. “I wish I could forget.” Peeta sat down next to her, his presence comforted her. “Do you remember stuff from your life before, the curse?”

Peeta grinned, “Do you know there are things that come naturally. Like for example, I know how to make bread, but I couldn’t tell you what my favorite food is, or what my favorite color is.”

“Favorite color?” Katniss questioned, did people have time for that.

“I’ve recently discovered I like the sunset, the orange in it is so beautiful. What about you, what’s your favorite color?”

Katniss glanced around and thought about the serenity that the deep cool greens of the forest gave her, “I like green.” Katniss glanced at him and their eyes fused, their eyes drifted to stare at each other’s lips.

“As friends can we kiss anytime Katniss?” Peeta asked his blue eyes were innocently glancing at her. They were so close and she did want to kiss him, but she pulled back.

“I think we should go to camp,” Katniss gasped nervously, “we have to make a plan to get the stones from Haymitch.”

Peeta nodded grinning like a fool.

“No more thoughts about kissing,” Katniss mumbled to herself, but she swore she heard Peeta say, he wanted to kiss her again.

OKAY now for the torture…. @geekymoviemom @eala-musings @thegirlfromoverthepond & @historywriter2007 time to show your cards…please Post a cool line from your WIP or one of your stories. It can be a line, a sentence, a paragraph, in context or out, whatever - it just has to be cool like you ;)

My grandma passed away this morning and even though our entire family is devastated, this has been the hardest week ever and honestly I’m relieved she isn’t suffering anymore.

(I appreciate your kind words and thoughts because you are all the sweetest, but please please don’t message me about her, I’m about four hours passed cried the fuck out and I don’t want to keep rethinking everything.)

That being said, I will be coping by making comfort food and writing all day, so by all means, please keep me distracted.

Ask me lots about the VAMPIRE AU to keep me writing, I know Vamp Qs can get borderline kinky and that’s fine lol you guys have read my Smut you know its difficult to make me blush!

anonymous asked:

what are some ways to know if a spirit is following me/how to talk to them?

Greetings,

There are a variety of ways to contact or find out if a spirit is following you. One of the methods below can provide further detail. Please keep in mind these will be brief to not be overwhelming. 


Divination:

In this section, several different methods can be used if this is the path that you choose to go when trying to contact a spirit. Some of the most popular divination tools are tarot cards, pendulums, runes and shufflemancy. 

- Tarot can be an effective way to communicate with a spirit as well as with yourself. When using cards you can ask questions relating to why they are following you and what they would like you to know. You can have your cards cleansed, but remember personal preference. If you do not do that, do what you normally do. This method can be difficult to interpret if you are unused to tarot cards but being skilled is not mandatory for communication. Finding a spreading that works for you is a good way to start.

- Pendulums are popular in the witchcraft and spirit working communities but their accuracy is honestly not that great. It can be influenced by other things, including yourself. It is a tool that can be potentially great for conversations with spirits but it is important to have your discernment developed. Should you decide to go this route, taking notes is recommended to review later. 

- Runes are generally used to read a situation rather than to have spirit talk through them. It is not recommended to use this method for basic communication, but again people may use it for that if they should wish to. 

- Shufflemancy is a technique that divines using music and is popular with spotify and youtube playlists. Spotify is generally used for its algorithms which spirits may be able to manipulate. Another alternative is using a personal music player to divine what they would like to convey to you. It may be trial and error method to get the hang of it but generally it picks up on what the spirit needs to share.


Energy Work:

For this area, it is recommended to have some energy reading or sensing skills to use. If this not applicable, then skip this section.

- Empathy is something that almost everyone has to some degree or another. The term for people who have a high degree of empathy are called Empathics. This allows for these people to sense the emotional states of the spirit and connect with them on that level. It can convey information that you may not get otherwise. It is crucial to have protection to make sure you are not harmed and know how to remove attachments should they form.

- Energy sensing can be learned on its own without having a prerequisite skill. Keep in mind it may be of more difficulty, but not necessarily. For this, doing energy sonar or pulses is recommended to “search” for possible entities hanging around. Visualization or a degree of feeling may be necessary. This is a way to find out if there are spirits around or if there is something following you. Trust both your intuition and your discernment. 

- Visualization is primarily used in tandem with energy sensing but can be used on its own. To do this it is creating a mental representation of what you are sensing or desiring to see. This method can help view spirits, but does require practice. Same with anything else. Here is a link to a master post of visualization exercises.

Additional Links:


Please know that these are only a few areas to start off with and there other methods to contact or find out if spirit is around. Perhaps starting off with one of the listed areas can help you out, but feel free to explore other methods as well. Be sure to practice safely and use good judgement. 

Sincerely,

Curator

Divination 101- Types of Divination (A)

For those of you who are new  here I am a diviner. I use Tarot and Oracle cards for myself and as a service to others. You can find my shop here. Frequently I get the comment that ‘Tarot doesn’t work for me’ followed by the question ‘what else is there?’

The answer? Sooo much. Below is a list. You will note that it only covers the letter A. I will be doing one post for each letter of the alphabet and then creating a master list when I am done.

I will attempt to be as thorough as possible. Please note that I am not an expert on many of these.

Acultomancy- Using needles. This was first used by the Romani people. A reader would pick up a specific amount of needles (The number depended upon the reader  but was usually divisible by the number 7) The needles would be dropped into a shallow bowl of water or upon a flat surface that had been coated with flour. The patterns that arose would be interpreted.Lines and angles were most important.

Aeromancy- Air divination with a focus on atmospheric phenomena. This included cloud formations, shifts and changes in the wind, discerning lightening, meteors and shooting stars, and more. If it happened in the sky it was important to this branch of divination. It was widely used and recognized as a branch of science until the Renaissance era.

Ailuromancy- Watching the movements of cats. This was MOST used for determining future weather patterns. However a dear friend and fellow diviner says that her feline is the best divination tool she has. Her moods and movements can tell her about a persons health, love life, or even financial troubles. My cat can only tell me when I’ve done something stupid or he’s hungry.

Alectryomancy- Using the movements and attitudes of small fowl (such as roosters and chickens) as a tool of divination. It was preferred for this branch of divination to use a white rooster or cockrel and place him amongst scattered grain. When the bird was done eating the diviner would look at the patterns and use this as their tool. Also. Some who used this type of divination would create a special board where all the letters and a few small words were drawn out. Grain or corn would be placed upon it and the words or letters that were uncovered by the chickens feasting would allow give them a pool to sort through and divine messages.

Aleuromancy- The use of flour as a divination tool. If you are a kitchen witch I HIGHLY suggest trying this at least once. There are two forms of this. The first is to toss flour unto a clean surface and look for patterns in the fluff. The second (and my preferred) is that you write the question on a piece of paper or into the flour itself. Then proceed to make a cake or bread You then take a piece of paper and write down all possible outcomes or conclusions to your question that pop into your head. Tear the paper into strips and put it into your dough. Mix it and bake it. When you break apart the bread the first message you receive is the answer to your question. Do not eat the bread. Depending on the paper and the tool you used to write the messages it could be poisonous.

Alomancy- Using the patterns of thrown or dropped salt as your tool of divination. It is also called Adromancy, ydromancie, idromancie, or halomancy. Salt is not only considered one of the core parts of witchcraft it is also the means by which people survived for thousands of years. It is thought that Alomancy is the oldest form of divination.

Ashagalomancy- If you’ve ever seen one of those super stereotypical hags on the television who are tossing out bones and using them as her form of divination then you have seen ashagalomancy in action. The bones are almost always small and (usually) come from animals. Like many forms of divination one must interpret the patterns of the bones.

Aspidomancy- is divination by entering a trance or ecstasy. This one falls under some scrutiny since it was documented by the french writer Pierre De Lancre in the 17th century while in the Indies. He wrote that “The sorcerer casts a circle, and steps upon the buckler at the center. he falls thus into a frenzy and…when the devil speaks within him the words come from his own lips”

Astragalomancy-  is divination by dice. While any types of dice can be used so long as the diviner themselves are comfortable with them in their origin special dice marked with symbols and letters were used. Often times these dice (like most dice before we developed plastic) were made of bone or (uncommonly) wood. The followers of Aphrodite were must likely to carry these in Greece. However they have the longest use by the Shona people of Africa who continue to use their dice (referred to as Hakata) today.

Astrology - One of the most popular and well known forms of divination astrology uses all the celestial bodies as the tools of divination. It is complex and multi-layered as the persons date and hour of birth, the current date and time, and other factors may be included in any readings. Because of its inherently complex nature it has fallen out of favor due to many charlatans using it to make quick money.

Augury- is divination from the behavior of birds.It is one of the forms of divination that was used in nearly every ancient culture that practiced divination. It was the study of not just the flights of birds, but their migration patterns, the colors of the wings, their numbers, where they landed, how many would take off or stay in certain circumstances. There are multiple stories and myths that revolve around an augur giving out wisdom. They were so popular that the term augury became synonymous with divination.

Austromancy- divination by the winds. The winds that came from the south were considered especially important. The strength, the pulse, and the temperature of the winds were the basis for forming a divine reading.

Auto-manzia-  is divination using ten straight pins and three bent pins. It is a very uncommon form of divination and was practiced only in Italy. The most famous practitioner of this form of Divination is was the psychic Maria Rosa Donati-Evstigneeff.

I finally got my hands on @thecrackedamethyst’s Amethyst Oracle, which is the perfect companion to her Idiosyncradeck. I’ve had so much fun reading with the two together, so now I’d like to read for YOU!
