🎵How To Do Shufflemancy🎵

a quick guide on my favorite type of divination, that’s simple and easy to do!

🎵 gather: yourself, your music collection, your question and a few moments. 

optional:

  • crystals to boost energy and clarity - amethyst and citrine
  • incense to light the mood for heavy divining

🎵 you may want to charge the device you use for music with magical intent. 

🎵 focus on your question, and come up with a number. 

🎵 the number can be personally important, or can be the number of letters in the question, or number of words, etc. 

🎵 go into a playlist, or your entire music collection, whichever you feel more appropriate.

🎵 hit shuffle, and then skip song the amount of times the number you chose

🎵 focus on your question and the divining energy during the skips.

🎵 listen to the song you land on, interpret the lyrics as your answer. 

note:

🎵 like tarot and other divination forms, exact “yes” or “no” answers are harder to find. open ended questions are best.

🎵 if you create a specific playlist with only positive or negative songs, you may skew your results. shufflemancy can only work with what you give it

Shufflemancy is a very easy method of divination that uses the songs in your music library to answer questions. As well as being simple, shufflemancy is a fun and lighthearted (depending on your music taste!) way of divining. Your question can be answered in the title, the lyrics, or the tone of the song if it’s an instrumental- the interpretation is up to you!

Shufflemancy: 101

So I’ve noticed that sometimes when I bring up Shufflemancy some people are unaware of what it is. I’ve decided to make a small informational post on it, and I hope it hasn’t already been done.

  • What is it? Shufflemancy is a form of divination using the shuffling of songs to help answer questions. Many people, myself included, use it as a way to contact spirits or deities.
  • How can I do it? Generally I use Pandora, because it’s personalized enough that I will recognize most of the songs and be able to get a good reading from them. I load up Pandora, set it to “shuffle all stations” and wait for an indicator song or gut feeling that I’ve connected with a deity or spirit.
  • What the heck is an indicator song?This term was coined by Lilboneshaker, it’s a song you’ve assigned to a certain deity or spirit that will let you know it’s the one trying to contact you. For example, I work with Bast and I (jokingly) assigned her the song “Eye of the tiger”. So if that song were to come on I know that next song would be something she needed to tell me.
  • How do I figure out what it means? Well, a lot of people have different memories and meaning assigned to certain songs. So first you should think if that song means anything in particular to you. Next you should examine the song title and lyric for any message that could be in response to your question. Another thing I do is analyze the type of song it is, if it’s cheery or sad, ¾ time, 4/8 etc and what that could mean in relation to my interpretation. I tend to to ask my questions a few times to ensure the message was delivered.interpreted successfully (unless I was given a very straight forward answer).

So I hope that was enough basic info for you! Also, and this is just a personal choice, I catalog all the questions I’ve asked and songs given in response so that I can go back to them later to rethink them.

Once more, my dashboard is void of anything that really interests me so I’m doing one of these obnoxious things to try and find people to follow from the witchy community, (since Tumblr search and explore aren’t really helping me find people with common interests these days…)

So, an introduction. I’m Bekkie, queer in pretty much every sense of the word, and I’m 25. I recently got back into my practice after a long time away from it, (mostly due to societal and familial pressures,) and I still haven’t found many witch blogs that interest me greatly.

If you post any of the following stuff, please give this post a like and/or reblog and I’ll probably follow you!

  1. Divination - I have a big interest in cartomancy, shufflemancy, divining via pendulum, casting and reading runes, tasseomancy and palmistry! The latter three I’m only just getting into, however.
  2. Spirit Work - Another interest I’m only just getting into, but that intrigues me!
  3. Crystals - Using them in spells or just posting about them because they’re pretty, either’s fine!
  4. Cosmic Witchcraft - Anything related to this is a great love of mine.
  5. Pop culture witchcraft and divination - Again, anything in this ilk interests me but it’s mostly things to do with video games that I’m really interested in. Also Dungeons and Dragons and other TTRPGs!
  6. Chaos Magic and Sigils - I’m a sigil maker myself though I don’t often post my sigils on here.
  7. Hellenism/Hellenistic Polytheism - I’ve literally only in the past few weeks began looking into Hellenism but after feeling drawn to Hekate for a long time now, I feel it’s the right time to investigate further.
  8. Kitchen, Hearth, Green & Cottage witchcraft - I cook constantly and love anything to do with imbuing my daily life with magic!

I’ll leave it at that for now, I think! :)

In this budding age of technology, it’s no surprise that a younger generation of witches is turning to a new form of divination: an exciting and interesting practice dubbed ‘shufflemancy’.

  • Shufflemancy - the use of a music player, usually an mp3 player or an iPod, to divine the future, optimal course of action, or the state of the world. This is done by setting the iPod to shuffle, skipping forward a certain number of times, and listening to the song (or songs) played and determining their meaning.

Usually technological forms of divination are frowned upon by older members of the pagan community, but in this case, shufflemancy is gaining ground. Not as flashy or as impersonal as divination applications that simply be downloaded onto a phone, shufflemancy is as accurate or as vague as the diviner wants it to be.

What makes shufflemancy so great? Why are people drawn to it as a form of divination?

  • Much like a tarot deck speaks to its user, a device full of music speaks to them in similar ways. The difference is that more time is put into creating the answers given from a device used for shufflemancy. Sometimes users can feel a disconnect from their tarot decks, as they did not create the cards, and thus, did not create their meaning. However, this is not the case for this form of divination. Every song on the device is there because it spoke to the diviner on some level of their personality, from the deep recesses of their inner feelings touched by songs like ‘Take me to Church’ to feelings of happiness found while listening to songs like ‘It takes Two’. Diviners don’t have to worry about pulling something that doesn’t speak to them, because a device used for shufflemancy can be tailored to serve their needs. Shufflemancy also has the unique ability to have as many (or as few) answers as the diviner wants, whereas tarot decks have a set number.

There’s no specific, set way to practice shufflemancy- it’s something you do on your own, and it’s completely self guided. Any diviner who tries to sell it as a prescribed, specific method is wrong, and should not be policing people’s practice. There is no ‘standard’ way to do it, but here are some tips to help some first time diviners.

  1. Tailor your device to your needs. It’s your music, don’t be afraid to take songs off or add them on as you see fit. If you feel soundtracks or background music speaks to you better than music with lyrics, that’s fine. Use that. Same goes for if you’re comfortable with Panic! at the Disco or AC/DC. It doesn’t have to be all Enya and Misty Mountains. also, don’t be afraid to just use a playlist if you have music on your device you don’t want to have for answers. Loading up a playlist with anything from 7 to 7000 songs is your choice, and nobody can judge you for it.

  2. Choose songs that have meaning to you. This doesn’t mean every song has to be deep and soulful. By all means, add happy, upbeat, and crazy songs to your shufflemancy playlist. But it’ll be frustrating for you if you keep trying to divine and come up with songs that you don’t even like on your list. It’s much easier for you (and for your practice!) if you stick to songs you know and love. If you’re having a hard time picking songs, just close your eyes and listen to the song you can’t decide on, and think on whether it has meaning to you, however small. If so? Good! Use it. If not? Maybe choose something else. You can always come back to it later.

  3. Choose whatever skip count feels right to you. One of the interesting things about shufflemancy is that most diviners ‘skip’ a number of songs so their playlist is randomized. Don’t feel like you have to stick with the standard ‘special’ numbers, like 3, 7, or 9. If those numbers feel right to you, feel free to use them! But don’t feel like numbers like 5, 14, or even 22 are bad skip counts. And don’t feel like you have to keep using the same skip count each time. Be as consistent or inconsistent as you want to be. The same goes for how many songs you listen to. If one isn’t enough, don’t feel like you can’t listen to more.

  4. It’s a good idea to meditate when you shufflemancy. Focus is true for any form of divination. It’s a good idea to focus on your cards when you do tarot, or focus on the pendulum when you use that too! It’s hard to connect with your device and the music on it when you’re rushed, or in a hurry, so sometimes it’s a good idea to sit somewhere comfortable and quiet, get into a position you can stay in for a while, and just sit back and listen. Meditation doesn’t always have to be at home though- some people like to shufflemancy while they’re driving, cooking, or cleaning! These tasks are easy to tune out while you listen to music (although, I don’t condone tuning out while you drive, obviously!) and in a busy day, it’s hard for some diviners to set time aside to practice.

In short, the best way to practice shufflemancy is the way that feels right to you! This is a new and exciting form of divination that’s accessible to a young generation of witches, and will likely only gain traction as times goes on. Don’t feel like this form of divination is ‘lesser’ or ‘not as witchy’ as other forms. It’s just as legitimate, just as meaningful, and just as ‘pagan’ as anything else.

Happy divining!

Violet’s List of Modern Witches

(I am not taking credit for this list, I liked it, but it was not alphaitized, which bothered me, so I alphabatized it)
soothingvioletlight:
Artistic Witch: A witch usually covered in paint from head to toe. They draw, paint, dance, sing, and sew their way through their practice. They enchant their tablet pens and paintbrushes, use storm water for their watercolors, and strike real emotion into their audience.

Atheist Witch: A witch who does not use deities in their craft.

Blood Witch: Another branch of Chaos magick, these witches primarily use blood in their rituals. They have a high pain tolerance, care little about what others think or say, and are very set in their ways. Many of them have a history of abuse and self harm. Some do it to prove how strong they are or devotion to their deities. Nonetheless, nice people once you get to know them. Perhaps a bit misunderstood.

Catholic Witch: Catholic witch who usually uses saints and the holy trinity in their practice.

Vampiric Witch: A witch that either works with or is a vampire. They feed off the energy or emotions of others and use it to power their magick. They tend to be kind of clingy, but they are loyal as fuck and treasure their few friends. They have many secrets, and usually a dark past. They enjoy using blood in magick and are adept at healing and cursing. They are kind of vain, love gothic clothing, jewelry and expensive things.
Wiccan Witch: Started in England by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s in order to preserve the “old ways”, these cuties use rituals and invoke the power of the goddess for their craft. Some believe in the rule of three, wiccan rede, the triple goddess, and so on.
Winter Witch: Witches who reside in the colder climates of the world. They cast snowstorms, collect hail and make poppets from snow. Blizzards are their best friends. They love cold weather, and usually draw their power from the snow and clouds, rather than the sun or the moon, as neither are usually very visible during storms. Despite their chilly disposition, they are warm and friendly once you get to know them.
Witch of the Dance: Branch of Artistic Witch. They use dance in their practice, and are very physically sound. They may practice one on many kinds of dance, or even martial art. And they do so skillfully. They are usually very quiet people, but not at all shy or unsure of themselves. They would rather express their thoughts through movement and body language than actually speaking.
Witch of the Waste: Desert witches who work with sand and limited supplies. Hardy herbs are their best friends and they often use a lot of bone magic. They have an extensive fossil and skull collection and are constantly pouring over old field guilds for their local area. They can whip up sandstorms in the blink of an eye, and befriend scorpions, snakes, and coyotes alike. They are an enduring species of witch, weathering everything the world has to throw at them. Few things dampen their spirits.

July Soundtrack for the Signs

Okay so I thought this would be kinda cool? Doing monthly readings for you guys but in the form of a song. 

Check you rising sign for outward influences, your sun sign for your personal energies, and your moon sign for your emotional energies. If you arent sure how to interpret all the energies together shoot me an ask and I will explain it for you.

Aries • Vance Joy - My Kind of Man

I think its important for you guys be who you wanna be. Don’t let anyone tell you how it is unless you agree with them. Go with the flow. Leave everything you know about love, happiness, and friendship at the door because some new energy is coming into your life. You wont want to embrace it at first because you know, new beginnings are scary but try and accept it and let it take you away. Do the things that you love and that you’ve always wanted to do. Just enjoy life this month and you will be rewarded with positive energy. 

Taurus • Asta - Dynamite 

You will be walking on air this month. You will be filled with confidence and just happiness. Things will be clicking together as if by magic. You’ve been stuck in some crappy situations but now its empowering you, making you look up at the stars and realise everything is for a reason. You will be shining your light in every area of your life. You will be having so much fun this month. Just be careful not to let people bring you down, don’t give them the power. If they’re trying to pull you down they’re already below you, remember that. 

Gemini • Colin and Caroline - Maps 

Its time for you guys to move on from that bad situation you’ve been stuck in. Its just bringing you down. I know you dont want to but you must because theres no point being stuck in something you dont enjoy. You need love and you just aren’t getting it at the moment. Nurture yourself and worry about everyone else later. It may hurt them but its the best thing for you. Don’t let your fears control you. If you leave that situation better energy will be coming into your life to fill that hole. Keep faith my lil Geminis.

Cancer • The Daydream Club - Saltwater

This month is going to be magical for you guys. The stuff that you’ve been dreaming of will be coming into your life. Everything will fall into place. You will be going with the flow of the ocean and you will let it take you to where you need to go. You trust that everything is how its meant to be. It just seems like you guys are in a trance of happiness. I have an image of you sitting on a donut floatie being carried away from the shore and taken to the most beautiful island. At last you’re getting what you want. If you guys are Cancer suns I hope you have/had a lovely Birthday! 

Leo • Janet Devlin - Friday Im in Love

I feel like there is some shit going on for you guys but its okay because this month you will realise that the little things outweigh the big. Even if only a moment is good for you this month it doesn’t matter because it fills you with hope. You’ll be throwing caution to the wind and will be doing things that make you happy. Also know that its okay to fall apart sometimes but don’t let it consume you.

Virgo • Dresses - Drift away

I feel like you guys are giving up this month. You just feel so alone. You’ve had enough of feeling like shit and you’re out of touch with the people that used to mean so much to you. You hate that you cant control everyone and your own emotions. I think you guys just need to let go a bit. You cant control everything so why even bother trying, ya know? Its just making you unhappy. Just tell the truth to yourself and others. If it hurts them, it hurts them. 

Libra • A New Normal - I Can Feel Your Heartbeat 

You’re going to be full of passion this month. Theres a fire behind your eyes that is pushing you towards your goal. You’re so sick of people trying to tell you who to be and how to act. You are telling them all to stick it up their asses. The clouds are clearing and the stars a showing themselves. You can feel the oneness of the world beating below the surface. You will just be very powerful this month. Just watch that your words aren’t too harsh otherwise you could have some negative consequences.

 Scorpio • Walk Off the Earth - Speeches 

I feel like you’re sick of having to hide who you really are for other people. You want to show people your fire and I would say go for it! You have been feeling bound lately and you just need to break the chains that surround your heart. Theres a light up in your future and you’re moving at high speed towards it. No one can see it expect you but you know its coming. Trust your intuition because you know better then anyone else what you want you receive. Keep faith my loves because its coming soon.

Sagittarius •  Ed Sheeran - Shape of You

You’ve been waiting so long for what you want and you’re getting sick of waiting. You need to take the reins and control it. Theres no point doting over something if you dont take action. You’ll go crazy soon enough. Sag is the sign of action so take it! Those bad guys aren’t gonna die unless you shoot your arrows. Stop letting people control you and just go for it! You’ll discover something knew about yourself if you do. 

Capricorn • Clean Bandit - Extraordinary 

You’re starting to become more aware of the gears at work in your life. You are seeing the big picture now. Everything is moving around you and you’re just enjoying the ride. You realise that there isnt any point in feeling lonely when theres so much going around you. You need to step out of your comfort zone and see what the world has to offer. Everything that is wrong will all be fine so dont go trying to avoid situations. Not everything is going to go wrong, I promise. Now step up and keep going!

Aquarius • Secret Nation - Tonight

You’re kinda scared of time right now. Everything is going so fast and everytime you try and stop it it doesn’t work. I think you just need to enjoy it instead of trying to control it. Go out and have a good time, everything will work out soon enough. You’re the one whos put your heart in bounds so if you only stop for a second you could un do it. Stop trying to blame other people for the way you’re hurting when its your own damn fault. Honestly you just needa chill this month. You guys should try meditating and watch time slow down.

Pisces • Bear’s Den - Elysium 

I feel like you’re letting go but in the good way. You’re throwing caution to the wind and stepping into the unknown hoping the world will catch you. You’re starting a new chapter. You might feel alone on this journey but trust that its the right path for you to take. Don’t listen to those voices in your head that are telling you to give up because they aren’t whats best for you. Trust in your intuition and let life embrace you. Hold on my lil fishes for the darkness will come but with it the stars will shine and the morning light will be here soon. Don’t become bitter but instead keep hope in your heart.

Free Divination Etiquette

I feel inclined on writing this after seeing the same kind of issues popping up in the divination community constantly. These problems especially show up for those of us who offer free readings from time to time. So I’m just going to leave a few tips and things for the clientele on free readings.

1. Don’t just demand. It’s polite to ask, or at least politely state you’re wanting a reading. I can’t count the number of times I’ve opened readings and had quite a few people send me asks that are kinda rude and demanding. Instead of demanding this type of reading and how it’s done (i.e. how many number of skips for shufflemancy), you could say, “I’d like a shufflemancy reading with 3 skips please”. It doesn’t hurt to say please and thank you! Keep in mind these are people on the other side giving you these readings! They don’t have to do this, they’re being generous. So be polite. Please and thank you will go a long way.

2. Show your gratitude! If they’re accepting and you’re able to, leave a tip! I get absolutely ecstatic if somebody tips me. If you’re strapped for cash like most of us, a thank you is great ♡

3. Feedback! The purpose of my free readings is generally to work on my skills. We don’t learn if you don’t give us feedback. If it’s super accurate, let us know! If it’s not, let us know that too! Which leads me to the next one…

4. If your reading isn’t accurate, don’t be a bag of dicks about it. We’re human. We’re gonna get some wrong. This doesn’t give you an excuse to be a douche to us. Plus, it’s fucking free? Chill. Just be polite about it and let us know where it was wrong and how we might be able to work on it so we get it right next time.

5. Respect our boundaries. Some readers don’t like to do readings about certain subjects (like love life, health, etc.). Don’t get all pissy because we don’t answer certain questions. Don’t get pushy about it either. If the individual doesn’t want to explain why, then they don’t have to. Just go find someone else who offers those kinds of readings.

6. Chill the fuck out. Don’t be so solemn and serious. This is something that’s supposed to be fun, so have fun. Don’t bring everyone else down too.

Basically, just be nice. Don’t be a bag of dicks or I’m not going to want to open free readings anymore. And then you’ve got a whole community pissed at you because you ruined the fun for everyone. It’s not difficult to be polite, or to have a little etiquette in your life. Just keep in mind we’re people too, so treat us with the same respect and courtesy you’d want to be treated with.

Happy Birthday to Me

The day had just started and I have already gotten some wonderful divinations. If you are seeing this and you do ANY form of divination, feel free to do one for me as practice if you are a beginner and if you are past the beginners stage, I would be honored by your gift of energy and time. I would love to get to know you and what better way then getting to know a bit about me?

I welcome all kinds of divination…I got one from someone looking through a book. It’s amazing stuff. I humbly ask you to show me what you got. Nothing is too weird. And I fear no knowledge.

Looking forward to getting to know you.
