Part 2: Introduction to divination techniques

Overview (10 mins)

Techniques people can apply to specific ecological/campaign situations - Do we march on this day? Is the campaign appropriate? Will this campaign method be successful? People used astrology, runes, tarot, scrying and shamanic in past.

Not fatalistic. Judging the tide.

Many: Tarot, Runes, I Ching, palm-reading; necromancy, communing with dead souls; pyromancy; crystal-gazing; ornithomancy, interpretation of the flights and cries of birds.

How does it work?

Unconscious Mind

  • controlling the motions of the diviner's hands
  • repository of immense wisdom
  • closer to each other

Jung - "an acausal connecting principle" - there are no accidents

Spirits of Wisdom
Manipulated by spirits.


  • Psychological: Can become obsessive.
  • Magical: Simple protective spell to keep out malign and encourage benign - even if psychological.
  • Tricky to read for yourself or someone you know well
  • People don't always hear what you tell them!

  • Tarot

  • Runes - Adrians notes
