Capnomancy

For Conjuring With Smoke

In an iron vessel burn
Mullein dried,
St. Johnswort fresh,
Willow old,
Wild lettuce green,
Apple dead,
Red cedar new:
While the living smoke ascends,
Let it wind about your hands
And shape it thus:

Breath and substance
Risen twice,
Death and issue,
Double face,
Phoenix fire,
Burning feather,
Fly and flower
All together.


Set it free and watch it rise:
Discover fate in this disguise.

Copal Fire And Smoke Divination

Copal is popular in magical, healing and spiritual uses. It makes a great meditation incense and increases psychic insight. Inhaling its aroma is said to enhance the powers of clairvoyance. It is also used to provide systematic oracles.

A means of divination by copal fire is as follows:

  • With your left hand, toss corn kernels into a fire.
  • With your right hand, toss copal into the fire.
  • Observe and analyze the meaning of the resulting smoke and flames.
