10-11-2023 - Divination 101: Tarot, Tea Leaf Reading, and Palmistry

When we practice divination, we reaffirm the magic and potency of our inner voice — our intuition. During the autumn months, our intuitive senses are at their peak, and as we press towards the heart of the dark season, the veil between realms grows thin, allowing messages from our inner selves, helping spirits, and ancestors to come through with greater clarity.

The season of the witch is the ideal time to cultivate a divinatory practice. In this three-week series led by Jezmina Von Thiele, we'll explore three divinatory methods and tools for building a relationship with your intuitive self: tarot, palmistry, and tasseomancy.

If you're a complete beginner to divination, have no fear, babe! We're starting with the essentials, including an overview of the history and cultural roots of each divinatory practice, and how the persecution of Roma, also known by the racial slur "Gypsies," has shaped the culture's practice of and relationship to fortune telling. You'll walk away from this series with the skills you need to begin cultivating a respectful, embodied practice with each of the divination methods we study, as well as a strengthened intuition and inner voice.

Together, we'll explore:

  • Tarot; how to learn the meanings of the cards, use a tarot spread, work with the symbolism on the cards, and approach your deck with more thoughtful questions
  • Palmistry; learn the different hand types, major lines, symbols and their meanings, as well as techniques for flexing your intuitive "seeing" abilities
  • Tasseomancy; learn how to create a tea leaf or coffee ground reading ritual, different techniques and methods for reading the cup, and how to respectfully engage with this form of divination and its cultural roots
