Scrying and Divination Techniques

Scrying is something I bet you’ve done without even realizing it – the beginning part of it anyway.

How many times have you watched the clouds drifting by in the sky, seeing faces and shapes in them? Have you ever stared blankly at a wall, ceiling, or floor and seen faces and shapes move across them?

That is scrying. (kind of) 😉 It means getting into a relaxed, meditative state and focusing on the shapes and symbols we see, and trying to interpret what meaning they may have for us.

Scrying is a form of divination, which means “fortelling the future,” but it is also a great tool…

Pendulum Divination

A pendulum is one of the simplest and easiest forms of divination. It’s a simple matter of Yes/No questions being asked and answered. Although you can purchase pendulums commercially, ranging from about $15 – $60, it’s not hard to make one of your own. Typically, most people use a crystal or stone, but you can use any object that’s got a bit of weight to it.

MAKE YOUR OWN PENDULUM

If you decide to make your own pendulum, you’ll need a few basic supplies:

  • A crystal or other stone
  • Jeweler’s wire or string
  • A lightweight chain

Take the crystal and wrap it in a length of jeweler’s wire. When you’re done wrapping it, leave a loop at the top. Attach one end of the chain to the loop. You’ll want to make sure the chain isn’t too long, because you’ll probably be using it over a table or other surface. Generally, a chain between 10 – 14″ is perfect. Also, be sure you tuck in any poky pieces of wire so you don’t jab yourself later.

CHARGE AND CALIBRATE YOUR PENDULUM…

How Tarot Cards Work

This is an interesting “scientific” article by     on the website How Things Work. You may not agree with everything or even anything the article says but in an effort to bring you different points of view on a subject I thought it worth putting on Coven Life.

In most people’s minds, “Tarot card reading” means a woman in flowing robes, leaning over a small table in a candlelit room, foretelling impending doom.

But that’s not really what Tarot cards are about. In fact, they’re not even really meant to tell your fortune or future. According to The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, “The most powerful sources of information come from within; the Tarot aids in coming in contact with one’s Higher Self.”

But what does that mean? In this article, we’ll look at the various ideas about where Tarot cards come from, what they mean and how a deck of cards can possibly tell you anything about yourself. You’ll learn why it matters where the cards fall and why you don’t have to be a psychic to do a Tarot reading.

Types of Readings

There are actually two different types of Tarot readings: question readings and open readings.

Tarot.com’s Tarot Guide

Tarot is an ancient divination that began in 14th century Europe. Traditional Tarot decks consist of 78 cards (the Major and Minor Arcana) depicting symbolic archetypes that allow us to tap into our intuition and gain clarity through Tarot card readings. Today, Tarot readings remain one of the most popular tools for insight and reflection worldwide.

A Tought for Today

If you are thinking of doing an astrological chart, I suggest you start with your birth chart. This is the to me id the most important chart and the easiest.

I have found over the years when doing an astrological chart it is best to combine a few different types of astrological views in combination to get the best reading for yourself or others. While most westerns use only the Sun Signs include looking at the Chinese, and Celtic/Druid information as well. This can give you a better idea of where you stand in the Universe and possibly what awaits you and makes you part of who you are.

Remember though the future is not written in stone and your actions and/or words may change what you see on your birth chart. You can also do love charts, financial charts, and other as well. This is a form of divination so if you do a chart except your birth one have a specific question to ask and keep it in your mind when doing a chart for that specific question.

I will also tell you that to do a thorough chart of any kind can be time-consuming and does not need to be completed in one sitting. If you stop and go back to it make your you ask the question exactly the same way every time. When I do a chart say for how my money situation is going to be over the next year I write my original question down and keep it with the papers for the chart I am doing, that way the question never changes until I am done with that specific chart.

I no longer to charts of any kind for anyone but myself and my family, so please do not ask me to. Thank you.

Blessed be dear ones.

Oracles & Divination in Druidry

The Druid took four wands of yew and upon them he wrote Oghams, and by his keys of poetic wisdom and through his Ogham he divined that Etain was in Bri Leith
with Midir.

Tochmarc Etaine

In ancient times Druids used many methods of divination: from simple weather-witching to the sophisticated interpretation of bird flight, from the observation of animal behaviour to the interpretation of planetary configurations. Almost certainly each of the four elements was used for augury, as they were used for healing. It is likely that the signs and associated feelings conveyed by earth cast on a sheet or drum-skin were read as a fortune teller might read the tea-leaves, and the shapes of passing clouds or of the images found in the fire or in gazing into pools of water were undoubtedly further sources of inspiration. We know the term the Irish Druids used for cloud divination – Neldoracht – and we know too of more complex methods of divining used in Ireland, including Tarbhfeis, which involved the diviner being wrapped in a bull’s hide to aid their clairvoyance.

Fire Scrying

As the power of the Sun fades, we embrace the harvest season and the decline of the fire element. This is a perfect time, as we approach the introspective tide of winter, to scry with flame. On a night close to the New Moon, cast a circle of protection, and light a purple candle. Sit silently and breathe deeply, allowing your conscious mind to grow quiet. Gaze at the candle flame and permit your thoughts to drift by without judgment. Soften your focus and relax your vision. Concentrate only on the flame. Ask a question. Observe the flame expectantly, and open your observations to your intuition. Invite the flame to impart images. Write down your insights, and carefully date your interpretation for future reference. Perfect to do on Samhain eve…

Samhain Mirror Incantation

Recite this incantation before scrying into your black mirror on Samhain eve…

“Mirror of shadow, reveal what I seek.
Powers of old, secrets so deep.

East then South, West and North.
Watch tower guards, I call you forth.

Traveling sphere, no harm to fear.
Circle protects, here and there.

Stars beyond, from Pluto’s realm,
Scorpio rules God’s golden sun.

By the power of three times three,
Lord and Lady, so mote it be.”

~ Barbara Morris
