Full Moon Magick

Well, my friends, the full moon is upon us again!

A wonderful time for healing, prophecy and divination, any magick to bring something to you or a goal to fruition.    I personally use this time to brush up on my divinations skills.  I'm still learning to use Tarot, so that will be my endeavor tonight!

If you want to learn a new divination skill, now is the time to do it!  A great resource for learning Tarot can be found at the Pagan/Wiccan pages.  It's great fun learning to use a pendulum, I've found that each pendulum I've owned speaks a different "language".  My current pendulum circles clockwise for yes and counter clockwise for no, with a bunch of extra squiggles for not now or soon.  Asking a series of questions you already know the answer to will help you figure out how your pendulum is speaking to you.

There is a whole range of different types of divination!  And there are some strange ones out there, let me tell you.

Axiomancy is divination through the observation of how an axe/hatchet quivers or points when driven into wood.

Cephalomancy uses the skulls or heads of donkeys and goats for divination.

Oinomancy uses wine for divination...I could handle a little more of that!

Hippomancy is divination using the neighing and stamping of horses.

Stolisomancy considers omens seen in the way people dress.

A whole huge list of common and uncommon forms of divination can be found here.  I've always like blibliomancy; divination by book!

What, if any, forms of divination do you use?  What will you do with your full moon?

Goddess Bless,



  1. How weird. I'm busy writing and researching Runes for a future blog post. We're on the same brain waves today, eh?

  2. Hah! Must be the moon! ;) I look forward to your post...I never could get the hang of runes!

  3. I'm planning a little tarot, but I'd also like to work on some energy and healing for myself. This phase of pregnancy is just kicking my butt.

  4. Muse Mama, I have no doubt that it is! I'll be sending some energy your way as well. ♥
