Awesome job to everyone that participated in last week’s Divination Discussion where we focused you you
YAY! Thank you all for participating!
@amy10 used Tell My Tarot to pick a card for themselves and will be practicing with their own tarot deck very soon
@krissie117 took the practice a step further and used their pendulum to help select a tarot card – and go their daughter involved, too
@kasie pulled some cards and had an encounter with the devil who isn’t so scary after all
@janelle tossed some dice and took a stab at reading the numbers
@Tamera pulled the Queen of Cups and had an uncanny encounter involving blonde hair
@praecog29 also had an encounter with the devil that was illuminated by the moon
I loved to see everyone’s involvement here in this discussion Getting into a daily practice, as some have said they will, can be a great way to kickstart your divination education. Reading for yourself is arguably one of the harder things to do because you can’t be fully objective
Great job everyone!
Ready for the new discussion?
This week is the first week of a brand new month so it’s only fitting that we use our divination skills to see what lies ahead for November This is one of my favorite tarot spreads to read because it’s simple yet quite effective. Getting insight into a new month can help us see what we need to focus on, what might be influencing us from our past, and what might get in our way of achieving our goals.
Grab your divination method of choice and create a spread (if that’s possible for your method) to help you answer the following questions…
What is my focus for November?
What areas from my past are influencing my decisions this month?
What might get in the way of achieving my goals?
What are the possibilities that might come from November?
If you need to see this visually in a tarot spread, I have one I created on my site that I’ll link here for you.
This challenge is not limited to tarot, so feel free to use whatever divination method you choose!
Let’s discuss your findings! Did you have any difficulty interpreting the reading for the questions? How does the reading for each individual question lend itself to the meaning as a whole?
New to Divination Discussion?
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.
