Divination Tips

Victorian era woman looking apprehensive as she lays out playing cards for divination

Frequently Requested: Divination Tips. How, people want to know, can they get the best results from an Oracle or Tarot reading, either the ones on this site or anywhere? The New Moon in Pisces is the perfect time to ponder such matters so, voila:

(1) Don’t expect the Full Reveal. There is a Grand Unifying Underlying Cosmic Principle or Theory weaving fate-lines through multiple dimensions, loves, and lives. But it can only be sensed or glimpsed fleetingly. Anyone “selling” you that is probably peddling voodoo or high on their own supply of synthetic Quantum matter.

(2) The more need you have attached to your question – the less likely you are to get an apt answer.  Set your mind to “light and detached.” For example, there was a briefly-occurring glitch with the Tarot where you didn’t get to shuffle before the reading appeared. Testing it, i was thinking of nothing in particular except checking if it had been fixed and yet the reading blew my mind with its relevance.

(3)  Get yourself into a magical consciousness – relaxed and receptive but not looking too hard.  That way you’ll pick up on the most sensational omens or messages via synchronicity. Tarot & the Oracle are but a few of many mediums.  Sense the signal of your instincts through the noise of constant calculations, desires, and angsts.

Cultivating Magical Consciousness

(4) Reishi does help enhance shamanic awareness – i am convinced of this. This is not, obviously, medical advice.  Sugar is terrible for adrenals, good for a temporary focus lift and it scatters true psychic vibe, though i have no idea why. Alcohol also.

(5) The monthly Moon-Neptune conjunction is always a goer for contemplative reverie and psychic instincts. Although, if you are trying to solve a love mystery or discover the source of a particularly hard-to-shift emotion, Moon-Pluto is witched right up.

(6) Remember that particular symbols, numbers, and cards or even flowers and plants can have their own unique meaning to you. Rather than getting hung up on the official definition for something, take into account your own interaction or personal connection to it.  This is where keeping a record of your results – especially for the 12 Card Tarot reads – is immensely useful. You can also learn more about the card meanings via a site such as Edelwyn.

(7) Much as i love Tarot & the Oracle, the ultimate shamanic, oracular experience is still and always will be dreaming. Whatever you do to enhance your sleep experience will also improve your dream recall, as will keeping a dream diary. Divination Tips essentially amount to magical consciousness. Once you’re on frequency, you can pick up what you need from anywhere.

Those pillows!


Haha too often the oracle basically tells me to get a grip. I think I have a ways to go on this, and these guidelines will be super helpful. Thanks MM!


I tried the blank, airy, detached approach this time and got a different kind of reading. Usually I locate myself in my current feeling first, although I don’t always put it into words. In my own readings, the cards won’t shut up about love and romance lately, even though there’s nothing on the horizon and even if I ask specifically about something else. But maybe those themes are part of my state of mind, whether I acknowledge it or not. When I cleared my mind first, the 12-card reading was quite bracing. It pointed out all sorts of conflict, clutter,… Read more »


I got the most packed with romance reading I have gotten in years. Really.
And I wasn’t really focusing on that (yes is on my mind but not while I did the reading) I was really open and curious. It could have been anything. And it came out very love and romance oriented, even in houses that don’t relate to that.
I’ve saved the PDF and gonna read it again in a while.


That photo cracks me up!!!


Jungian through and through. Thanks Mystic.

Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

It’s freaky I always get the same cards coming up.


During the dark moon I went Defcon Mars in Virgo and cleaned my house, burned candles, opened windows, got fans whirring to move the air around and then clapped in the corners… did laundry, spritzed my bed with lavender water, scrubbed and magnesiumed my bod. Then I wrote and spoke aloud what I wanted gone – I really felt it. As the moon was new I wrote and spoke aloud what I wanted to come in, and actions I would take to support the intentions. This morning I feel rested and ready. I did a couple of Tarot readings also,… Read more »


That sounds amazing. Weather says stay indoors today so I might do similar, even if the timing’s a bit belated.


Sleep is a difficult process for me. I would like to be able to get my dream world back. My feeling is I try so hard to keep my conscious emotions in order that my subconscious is running differently. I’ve been tackling deep trauma in therapy so I suspect that has something to do with it. My subconscious is finding a new way of communication. I often receive the tarot card about psychological wounds and recovery, which is a real comfort. The most repeated theme is the new romance or message of love arriving, I immediately dismiss this notion. Oracle… Read more »


I had cards 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 talk about romance. Trouble is l’m more Germanic than Roman.

Love your wit Powderfinger x


It took years of abuse to get this far.


Yes I’ve had someone insist I am of Germanic extraction too.
Thanks for the giggle PF. Love me some classic comedy capers x


Someone ‘else’ insisted you were Germanic? What…they were more certain than you?

Are you Steffi Graf-like or a Nena type?


More Nena than Steffi


Steffi is my 2nd favourite sportswoman. I loved her forehand. But more than that, her human frailty. When she overcame her self-doubts, she overcame her opponents.

How very Gem!

(Anna Meares is my fav sportswoman)


Are you kidding, go do some reading on German Romanticism. Before all the modern era strict machine shite. They were (are!!) dreamers, lyricists, emotional, passionate, tender, wanderers, etc.


My comment was light-hearted but engagement in a subject…oooohhh goodeee. Yes l know about this. Their musicians and philosophers. …and so on. But don’t forget that the Romans were the ones that coined the name Teutons (tall bonde ones- encompassing most Northern Europeans). Which became a by-word for efficiency. The shortest reach of the Roman Empire was to the North. Their expansion to the West, East and South were far greater than to the North. Check out the Limes Roman fortifications in Southern Germany. The so-called hordes to the North knew how to fight. Many a Roman garrison met a… Read more »


were = *was*


oh, porsche and Bavarian motorworks are german? i had no idea 🙂


You’re not as dumb as l look.



why this continuous need to bang on about german/teutonic superiority, powderfinger? it’s really kind of boring and bordering on well dare i say racist? i mean i don’t see anyone on this blog putting them down – so why this supremacist talk all the time. some of us might of had a gut full don’t ya know.


Superiority? Racists? Supremacist?

I’ll report it if l see it.

My Mars Venus lines crossover Porsche country.

Where your Venus Mars crossover is where you have a strong affinity. I knew about the affinity long before the astrocartography.

My son is also born same day as Ferdinand (3rd Sept) and l have Venus cj Mars in the same Virgoan Decan.

The other part of the world I’ve loved is Seattle which is trammelled by my Sun and Moon lines.

I’m glad for you to know that those 3 words don’t apply to me!


your just talking shit now and you know it


All verifiable and you call it shit.


its shit because that doesn’t give u the right to keep thrusting your teutonic superiority complex in this blog.


I am happy in the lknowledge that my references are objective.


i’m happy that your happy. i know you mean well but the whole teutonic thing is a bit weird – not the car stuff so much – but all the other stuff. no hard feelings and peace to you.


Thank you for your kind words. I plead guilty to being obsessive for sure;
intended. I do not promote neg views off any race.
My obsessiveness gets me into much trouble. Its why ppl pick me as a Scorp. I try to rein it in but when ya have 17 obsessions there is always one to chance an escape. Your msg kindly received..


Well I’m glad that’s passed. I can honestly say I’ve not felt so funked out for a long while. Mega trip. Deepest soul angst. Now some ten hours post new moon I feel relieved. Not settled by any means but lighter. I’ve stepped back off the ledge shall we say. Did a tarot and it was very much on point in that all the incoming is career and much greater individuality. Hoorah. I always flit through my mind and feel the thing I’m asking about, visualise it and sit with the sensations. Then press go. Never fails.


thinking of you emg
glad the dark hrs passed by.


I do like that the more I do readings for myself, the more cards take on particular, personal meanings. Earlier today I accidentally deleted all my old 12-card MM tarot readings while trying to clear space on my phone. Oh well, it must’ve been time for a clean slate. My new (moon) reading is mixed…I’ll give it time to sink in. I’ve been sleeping more heavily just lately, and dreaming about exes. But it’s the ones I feel weird about, and I feel weird about them in the dreams too, and then I wake up from the deep sleep feeling… Read more »


I did all three readings: single tarot, oracle and the 12 tarots (looking at the 7th which is where Pisces are for me but did not have 7th house themes in my mind) it was all very “let’s see what this next cycle beginning now will bring” or “what do I need to know” with zero preconditions or specific interest in. Feels very liberating and inspiring.
