Fig Leaf Divination

Figs were considered by many to be the tree of life. This ancient method of reading fig leaves to determine the future of your life is known as sycomancy.

Write your question, scheme or proposal on a fresh fig leaf. Retain the leaf and observe it. A leaf that shrivels up quickly provides a negative response, while a leaf that dries slowly, retaining a fresh, green appearance provides encouragement.

This is also an excellent way to choose between various alternative actions. If you have a number of different ideas, plans, choices, schemes, proposals or scenarios, write each one on a fig leaf — one leaf per option or choice.

Retain the leaves so that they are together under exactly the same conditions but not touching. The leaf that remains fresh, green, and youthful looking the longest represents the oracle’s choice.

If all leaves age at exactly the same place, the indication is that there is yet another, more appropriate choice that has been overlooked. Consider your options further before making a choice.
