9780007136124: Illustrated Encyclopedia - Divination: A Practical Guide to the Systems That Can Reveal Your Destiny

Interpreting dreams and omens, dowsing, reading the stars – these are just some of the ways used to explore the future. This guide is a historical and cultural record of the way we imagine our destiny. It includes instructions on how to work with various divinatory methods.

Since ancient times, divination has helped us to understand our place in the world and to connect us to the forces that shape it. Contrary to popular belief, divination does not reveal an implacable fate, but allows us to see forces that are active in our lives and to work with them in creating our future.

Lavishly illustrated throughout, this authoritative and beautiful guide is a unique historical and cultural record of the way we imagine our destiny. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with what the present holds and what the future may bring. Includes information on:

The ancient roots of divination, its culture, myths and mysteries.
• Seers, prophets, shamans and mediums, ancient and modern.
• Reading the symbolic meaning of signs and omens.
• Working with the great ‘books of fate’: the I Ching, Cabala.
• How to interpret Tarot, Runes and Geomancy.
• How divination works and how it can connect you to your inner self or guide.
• Divination and its association with spiritual practices.
