Awesome job to everyone that participated in last week’s Divination Discussion
YAY! Thank you all for participating!
@kasie dipped their toes into the world of reading for another person with tarot!
@Limeberry tried out some bibliomancy using a beautiful book!
@praecog29 showed that reading who was boss and gave a beautiful interpretation with tarot!
@TheTravelWitch pulled three tarot cards – one for each of Career Sally’s questions!
@krissie117 got their feet wet reading tarot for another person and posted a funny meme
It seems like everyone pretty much came to the same agreement – Career Sally needs to ditch her old job and find something she loves to do. Great job, everyone, for taking part in the first ever Divination Discussion! You all did wonderfully and it was nice to read how everyone else interpreted their divination methods!
Ready for the new discussion?
This week, we’re doing something a bit different. Instead of focusing on someone else, we’re going to focus on ourselves! Grab your favorite divination method and get ready!
If using tarot, flip through the cards passively. Look at them, but not actively. Let your eyes go out of focus, or even close, and then choose the card that calls out to you.
If using another method of divination, shuffle them up and pick one that calls out to you. The way you do this will depend on the divination tool you choose.
Want an extra challenge? Grab a tarot deck and a pendulum. Fan the cards out, close your eyes, and focus. When you open them, gently sway the pendulum over the deck to choose the card for you!
Don’t have a divination method handy? You can use this site to pull a random tarot card. Close your eyes, breathe, and then click the button!
Got your reading ready? Now interpret it for yourself. How does it make you feel? What are some keywords associated with it? Does it apply in your life right now? If not, what do you feel that it means?

How does it work?
Each week, starting on Thursday, I’ll be posting a new hypothetical divination question.
For anyone that doesn’t have a divination method or wants to make it a little more challenging, I’ll have another option available for you.
During the week, use whichever method you feel comfortable with to answer the question. Draw as many cards, throw as many bones, or pull as many runes as you need. Any spread you think will work is okay to use that goes with the challenge.
Write about it here in the comments and share any pictures you may have taken!
Discuss your interpretation and the interpretations of others and help out where you can.
Ask questions! If you’re not sure how to interpret something, please ask. Many of us have personal experience or other sources that we can share.
What’s the purpose?
When we are learning a new method of divination or just practicing, it can be hard to get good practice without actually doing anything. Practicing this way with a hypothetical situation gives you an idea of questions that might be asked and it gives you practice in how to respond if you’re reading for someone else.
Anyone can participate – from new beginners to seasoned readers alike – to benefit from this discussion. To make sure we’re all on the same page, I’ve got some guidelines for everyone to follow to make this a place of safe and constructive discussion.
Any divination method is okay - use what you’re okay with.
This challenge will run from Thursday of one week to the end of day Wednesday the following week.
If you do not want feedback on your interpretation or reading style, please say so. The purpose of this challenge is to learn and discuss with everyone else.
Please use trigger warnings if your interpretation involves any mention of the following.

Remember, there aren’t necessarily wrong answers. Divination is often very personal and that’s why interpretations are fun and good practice!
