Oracle books 📚

I was in TK Maxx today buying sugar free vanilla coffee syrup (as you do) :yum: :coffee:
and I came across this book. :eye: :books:

Daily Oracle by Jerico Mandybur
Now, I’m only just starting with tarot cards :sweat_smile: so I know I shouldn’t be taking on any more… but one thing led to another… and I bought the book :shushing_face: it’s pink and it sparkles :woman_shrugging:t3:


First impressions: Good.
Flicked through opening random pages with no questions in mind and nothing made sense - fair enough. :ok_hand:t3: nice pictures here and there.
Took a few deep breaths with eyes shut, asked ‘Are my spells actually working?’ brushed through the pages a few times, landed on a page and opened my eyes.

Put the book down and it flicked through a few more pages on its own (as books do sometimes) and landed here.

The two join together rather beautifully and give a lovely clear answer…
I like.

Has anyone else used oracle books? Which ones? What do you think of them? How do you use them?

Great find!! Jerico Mandybur also has an Instagram page and is an advocate of self-care and Magic!! :sparkles:

I knew someone who had an Oracle book and would go out to find random people and read them their oracle! (if they wanted)

I think they’re great for group settings since the reading is so short, you can go around quickly and work a bit with each individual.

Yes, I don’t know how other people use them but from what I’ve seen, the querent picks a number from 1-200 (or as many pages as the book has).

Or you could use a birthday, favorite number, special date and reduce it to a number in that range. Then you find the page that matches that number and read the oracle.

Ooh that sounds interesting!
This one doesn’t have page numbers it’s just a flick through and stop when it feels right kinda book. It’s given me a couple of interesting readings actually!

The practice is called Bibliomancy and it was typically done with a bible.

According to the wikipedia entry on Bibliomancy, the method was:

  1. A book is picked that is believed to hold truth.
  2. It is balanced on its spine and allowed to fall open.
  3. A passage is picked, with the eyes closed.

Other books were the Iliad and Odyssey, the Quran, the I Ching, or a random book from the library.

There are some modern-day oracle books such as the one Limeberry found.

It can be a fun way to practice divinations, or just to get daily wisdom from books.
