I posted this one my October Magic post but I wanted to repost it in its own post. I may do several this way.
Samhain is the best time for divination; do a tarot reading, rune reading, use the pendulum, scrying, palm reading, tea reading, ouija board.
I just need to say a few words about divination. People have told me that the devil resided in tarot cards. That crystals turned girls into witches. And that demons lived in Ouija boards and that demons will possess them. This is all ridiculous. Ouija boards and tarot cards are all pieces of cardboard. They only have the power you give it. If you believe they are evil, that’s what you will find. Please read this article: https://www.vox.com/2016/10/29/13301590/how-ouija-boards-work-debunked-ideomotor-effect
My grandmother used to read tea leaves, I’ve done palm reading. I’ve done mirror scrying and crystal ball scrying. I have runes, an ouija board, several pendulums, and a dozen different tarot decks and a huge collection of crystals. None of these things tell the future (I wish they did), they help you understand yourself and your options. I am not evil, despite the Trump supporters who say otherwise. I am a normal, well-read, long studied grandma type who cares about others. I’m not afraid of cardboard and rocks that are taken out of the earth. I’m more afraid of people who walk around Walmart with guns. Which is why I don’t go to Walmart.
Don’t be swayed by superstition. Educate yourself.
