Many people gush excitedly that they love fortune tellers, scrying and divination, but feel that they could never do it themselves. Why is this, when these individuals are obviously open to the psychic arts? Are they afraid of what they might see, or that they might see nothing at all? Alexandra Chauran, author of Crystal Ball Reading for Beginners, allays the fears of those new to scrying with a crystal ball.

Tea leaf reading, or tasseomancy, has been practiced as a form of divination probably ever since the first cup was brewed. But how does one make sense of the images left at the bottom of a cup? To help lift you over the hump—that clutch moment when you fear you’re floundering in a red sea of Rooibos—and onto the path toward giving dynamic readings, Caroline Dow, author of Tea Leaf Reading for Beginners, offers 10 easy-to-put-into-practice tips for interpretation.

[Once] you know the basic meanings of the sixteen figures [of Geomancy], you can use them to answer questions. Be as specific as you can when asking your question. You need to create the figure while concentrating on your question. Let's assume you ask, "Will I receive my promised pay raise next month?" While thinking of this question, you need to produce four rows of dots on a sheet...

The recent economic downturn has had a ripple effect on most businesses, including those in the psychic and astrological consultation sectors. Most people are cutting back on life's little extras and are spending money more wisely, but does that mean you need to forgo your regular psychic consultations?

The Ouija board is one technique for contacting spirits that has a reputation for being manipulated and used for evil purposes. I have delved into many types of divining, from numerology, tarot, and coin tossing, to pendulums, psychics, and palm reading. Like many people, I am fascinated with connecting to those who have passed, with receiving one more message from a loved one. Laura, a good...

Over time, many of us acquire an assortment of small but delightful trinkets, such as miniature animals or other little figurines, souvenir items, toys, miniature charms, and many other gewgaws. Along with these, we may also collect natural objects such as seeds and nuts, pebbles, and shells, as well as interesting bits of beach glass or driftwood and other found articles. Oftentimes these things give us pleasure because, aside from being colorful or whimsical, they convey some special symbolism or serve as mementos. However, if you’ve just been allowing them to accumulate in a junk drawer, you can take them to a new level of use, since these objects, or fetishes, have a traditional role in divination.

Plants have long been called upon to provide glimpses of the future. This form of divination, termed botanomancy, uses plants in innumerable ways: they’re placed beneath the pillow to create prophetic dreams; are sown and observed as they grow; are used as pendulums; and are tossed into water, air, or fire. Plants seen unexpectedly are responsible for a wide range of omens, especially those...

Cats are a popular theme for tarot and oracle decks, and for good reason. For centuries cats have been associated with religion, spirituality, and mysticism. Today, cats are much loved, as companions and as symbols of independence and a lack of concern for the opinions of others.
