Love Divinations

Is Your Lover True?

On receiving a love letter that has any particular declaration in it, lay it wide open; then fold it in nine folds, pin it next to your heart, and thus wear it till bedtime; then place it in your left hand glove, and lay it under your head.

  • If you dream of gold, diamonds, or any costly gems, your lover is true, and means what he says.
  • If of white linen, you will lose him by death.
  • If of flowers, he will prove false.
  • If you dream of his saluting you, he is at present false and means not what he professes, but only to draw you into a snare,

New Moon Marriage Divination

When the Moon is New, braid your hair or some kind of string while saying:

I braid this knot, this knot I braid,
To know the think I know not yet,
That while I sleep I plain may see
The man (woman) that shall husband (wife) be,
not in his (her) best but worst array,
Just what he (she) weareth every day,
That I tomorrow may him (her) ken
From among all other men.

Nutty Love Divination Spell

Irish women and girls check the loyalty and faithfulness of their lover by placing two nuts (one named after the lover and one with the girl’s name) on the bars of a fireplace grate. If a lover’s nut cracks or jumps, it means that he is unfaithful and will not be loyal to the girl. If a lover’s nut burns or catches fire, it shows that he has true love or respect for the girl. If the girl’s and the lover’s nut burn together, it means that they will get married.

Sew an ounce of Yarrow in a piece of flannel and place it under the pillow before going to bed. Repeat the following words, and you will receive a vision of your future husband or wife:

Thy true name it is Yarrow;
Now who my bosom friend must be,
Pray tell thou me tomorrow.”

Yarrow, in the eastern counties of England, is termed Yarroway, and there is a curious mode of divination with its serrated leaf. The inside of the nose is tickled by the leaf while the following lines are spoken. If the operation causes the nose to bleed, it is a certain omen of success:

Yarroway, Yarroway, bear a white blow,
If my love love me, my nose will bleed now.”

More Halloween Love Divinations

heart_carved_in_appleTo find, from a list of potential suitors, whom you are most likely to marry, on Halloween night take one crab apple to represent each suitor. Prick the initials of each candidate into the skin of the apple selected. Leave the apples undisturbed in a box for almost a year, until Old Michaelmas Day (Oct 11). The most perfectly formed initials reveal the answer.

Another (and much quicker) method is to take as many hazelnuts as you have prospective partners. Name each nut accordingly before placing them evenly in the front of the fire. The nut that pops the loudest and burns most brightly says it all.
