Domino Divination

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on November 30, -0001

Divination with Dominoes according to certain rules and values assigned to individual dominos. Each domino I either blank bears one to six dots. As a result, meanings are attached to each domino as follows:

  • Blank: the Querent, or person asking the question or for whom a reading is done.
  • One: travel or journey.
  • Two: family & close friends.
  • Three: love, relationship
  • Four: money, finances

Seven Veils: One domino is drawn and then returned to the group which is re-shuffled, and a second domino is drawn, and so on for a total of seven times. Keep note, and read them as a story proceeding from past to future.

Future Fan: Thirteen dominos are selected and laid face up, end to end, and read in groups of three in which the last domino of the first five becomes the first domino of the next five, and the last domino of the second five becomes the first domino for the last five. Again, a story is read proceeding from past to future.

Other spreads can be developed, always establishing rules and providing opportunity for the subconscious mind to both influence the dominos chosen and inspire the interpretation.
