Ok so I love the idea of divination by throwing things about, and lithomancy is stone divination.
Now, you can use your lovely crystals or tumbled stones for this but a. I’m cheap so I don’t have too many and b. I am not gonna be throwing around my precious gem babies. Nooope.
So, what to do?
Go outside and grab a bunch of small to medium stones that appeal to you, you should need about 10-15 depending on what you wanna put on them. Give them a wash and dry.
Take paint or use markers (I used gold and silver markers) to add symbols of meaning to each one. Common themes include the planets and elements along with some tarot influence.
Next, take a spare piece of paper and figure out what categories you want, 8 in total. I did:
Self, love, money, work, friends, home, magic and health. Now you should make a circle with whatever you can that looks like the below, and place your categories in the 8 sections. Still with me? Cool.
Now here’s the fun part! Shake up your stones and (not too hard) cast them over the circle. They will scatter about and maybe bounce a little. Stones that lie outside the circle or lines are irrelevant and should be put back in the storage while you read. Depending on which section they land in, the stones will have a message about that topic. Stones in the centre circle show past/current events, the middle ring shows things to come and the outer is for future possibilities.
This is super fun, inexpensive and actually pretty accurate so if you get the chance, go do it!!
Runic Magic or Divination uses stones with alphabetic symbols that are used to predict one´s future. They are from different materials and usually kept in a pouch.
Like Ryley and Ishani found out, a symbol can mean different things , you need to pick the meaning that applies more to the person who made the question and it also depends on the circle it falls. Be it your “Self”, “Influences”, or “Future Events”. The combination of the runes that fell are the answer to the question.
