Bay Leaf Divination

The oracle at Daphne, near Tarsus was obtained by dipping bay leaves or branches into a sacred spring, and bay leaves remain an ingredient of many magic spells and a tool for divination. Here’s a simple bay leaf divination spell that doesn’t require a magical spring.

Concentrate on your question while holding bay leaves in your hand. Then either place a single bay leaf onto a lit charcoal or toss a few leaves into an open fire.

If the leaves crackle loudly and burn brightly, the prognosis is positive. If leaves sputter, refuse to burn, or, worse, all flames die out, consider postponing or adjusting your plans. If flames shoot straight from the bay leaves, the signs are auspicious; all powers and blessings are with you.
