Definition: the practice of foretelling future events or discovering hidden knowledge by occult or supernatural means

  • The supernatural power of seeing objects or actions removed in space or time from natural viewing.
  • Clairvoyant ability, which uses Intuition above and beyond the Intellect, is at the heart of all systems of Divination.
  • It is also known as “Occult Cognition” or by Gypsies as “the Sight.”
  • Astrology is the Art & Science of understanding the relationship between human beings and the stars & planets.
  • These relationships are shown in charts:
    • Natal charts give a person’s tendencies & characteristics at the time of birth.
    • Transit charts show the “shape of things to come.”
  • It is left to the Astrologer and the individual charted to interpret what the portents in the chart mean…
the qabalah
  • The Qabalah (or Cabbala) is an ancient Hebrew tradition based on Hebrew letters and their relationship with numbers.
  • It was based on a mystical method of interpreting Scripture by which initiates claimed to penetrate sacred mysteries by understanding these relationships.
  • It is shown in the diagram to the left known as the “Tree of Life.”
the tarot
  • The Tarot Cards of Ancient Egypt also use the Tree of Life –
    • Each of the 22 Trumps are attributed to one of the Paths.
    • The Court cards and Number cards are attributed to the Sphere (or Sephiroth) which corresponds to their number.
  • The Tarot is first and foremost a means to understand the Mystical & Magickal nature of the Universe. It is an Intuitive Philosophy.
  • Next, it is a system of Divination.
  • Done with regular playing cards, it is called CARTOMANCY.
the i ching
  • The I Ching (Yi King) is an ancient Chinese mystical philosophy and divination based upon Nature.
  • It posits the primary dualistic reality as Yin & Yang and then proceeds to expand these into 8 trigrams which are then again expanded into 64 hexagrams which are used to explain Heaven & Earth and Man & Nature.
  • The divination is done with either 6 coins or 6 sticks to ascertain the appropriate hexagram.
  • A Shewstone or Crystal Ball, such as that used by the prophet Nostradamus, is a physical object which acts as a focal point for the Seer’s mind to concentrate on whatever question is at hand.
  • Other such objects are Tea Leaves, Jewels, Clouds, Flame, the Entrails of Animals or any other medium to allow the Seer’s mind to focus and gather Knowledge.
  • The Palm of the Hand is used as a point of concentration by the Seer.
  • Palmists state that the lines and other physical parts of the hand represent many different aspects of the life of the person whose hand is being read.
  • The study of handwriting, especially when regarded as an expression of the writer's character, personality, abilities, etc.
  • The shape, slope, size, etc. of a writer’s letters and words are used to tell about the person in question.
  • Augury done by dots, figures, lines or by geographic features.
  • Handfuls of soil or other materials were scattered on the ground, or markings made in the earth or sand, to generate a range of dot configurations which could then be "read" by a seer.
  • To search for underground supplies of water, metal, etc., by the use of a divining rod.
  • The dowser holds a wooden or metal fork while he walks over a given area.
  • If he is well-tuned to Nature, the point of the rod will dip when he is over the desired substance (usually water.)
  • Phrenology is the study of the structure of the skull to determine a person's character and mental capacity.
  • As the shape of the skull is easily changed with the use of any blunt instrument, phrenology is considered a pseudo- science and worthy of litle merit.
