of shoes and ships -
and sealing wax -
of cabbages and kings." ~ Lewis Carroll
I'd like you to come along with me for intuitive FUN!
Have I ever told you the story about my Great Aunt Billy?
She was my Grandmother's sister on the French Canadian side of my father's family.
A bit of a character (apples don't fall far from the tree do they? :)
and she spoke French for most of the time I was around her as a child.
Well, Aunt Billy read tea leaves (which is called Tasseography).
She would only read them for: "Women of marrying age".
I always wished I were older when she did this when I was little so I could find out about ME too.....
but I was never old enough....
When I WAS older, I found out that the symbols for tea leaf reading & those of wax divining were the same!
But surely I digress... :)
Back to Ceromancy or Wax Divination:
You will need:
*A bowl of water
Take a candle for your purposes and say a blessing over it. Rub the candle with some oil to dedicate it for your purpose.
Lite the candle with a prayer of Goodness for some Insight.
Once the wax has started to melt a bit...
Ask a Question:
I usually like to ask in a broad manner ....something like:
"Tell me about............" (include subject or area of interest).
Then take your spoon and swirl the water....clockwise.
Pick up your candle....ask question again....and drip a small amount of wax into the water.
Take the spoon and carefully lift the wax shapes out of the swirling water.
You can interpret using the symbols below....
You should also keep an open mind to what some symbols mean TO YOU.
Maybe an "anchor" may mean a weight or heaviness...to you...
Or a "bridge" may be a time of crossing over to a new situation...
a "Moon" may mean a month's time...
a "spider web" may mean lies....
a "snake" may mean kundalini sexual power...
Get the idea? :)
Remember to keep an Open Mind and have FUN! :)
