Divination

Dream Oracle Doll

This method, which resembles something from a fairy tale, traditionally uses a mandrake root, though ginseng, carrot, or any root that suggests a human form may be substituted.

  • Embellish and dress the root so it looks like a person. (German folk tradition suggests using millet for eyes.)
  • Wrap the root doll in silk when not in use and keep in a safe place.
  • Unwrap the doll and talk to it before bedtime. Tell it your concerns and questions.
  • Perch it on your pillow or tuck it beneath while you go to sleep and dream.

Isis Snake Divination

Spring is the time of nature, revelation, and discovery. Just as plants peek out of the ground, so do snakes and other creatures that have rested over the winter. March is the time of Isis, moon mother, and mother of the sea. Snakes are one of her symbols. This ritual respectfully conjures her symbolic reptile, paying tribute to her while invoking her spirit.

  • Draw a bath.
  • Into the bath, pour 1/4 cup Epsom salt, 1/4 cup coarse and 1/4 cup fine Dead Sea salt.
  • Put on a piece of moonstone (ring, necklace, bracelet, or anklet).
  • Light a blue candle and place on a fireproof container near the bathtub.
  • Bring a crystal ball (or clear quartz crystal) with you into the bath.

Gaze at the candle as you breathe deeply and very slowly until you are very relaxed. Realize that you are breathing in the smoke of Isis.

Call her name quietly but deliberately, drawing it out slowly like a snake’s hiss. “I-sis, I-sis, I-sis.” Breathe in and with the exhale whisper, “I-sis.” Do this for about five minutes.

Lift the crystal ball into the air once you feel the spirit of Isis within the room. Hold the ball in front of the candle flame. See what is in store as you divine by scrying both fire and crystal.

Tree Magick Divination

This ritual lets you ask a tree a question.

If you live near a pine forest all to the good, but as all woods have their own particular magic, any wood will do. Avoid following this ritual when there is a lot of wind, for you will probably find that there are too many leaves vying for your attention!

As you make your way to the woods, form a question in your mind to which you want an answer. Find a fallen twig and gently carve the initial letters of each word of the question on it. Hold this towards the sun and say the question aloud.

Now close your eyes and relax, listening to the breeze rustling the leaves. Let the sound form a picture in your mind. Do not try to make things happen or imagine things you do not hear. After a minute or two, you should feel that the leaves have said all they are going to say. Bury the twig so that it returns to Mother Earth and as you walk away, an answer to your question should come to mind.
