Pagan Portals - Divination: By Rod, Birds and Fingers
An Introduction to Divination
Divination is only a small part of a witch’s stock in trade, and although a basic introduction to the subject can be learned from books, proficiency will only come through vigorous practice. This proficiency comes through the discovery of certain secret matters by a great variety of means, correspondences, signs and occult techniques. Before a witch can perform any of these operations with any degree of success, we need to develop the ‘art of seeing’ and the ability to divine with rod, fingers and birds. Divination is what could be referred to as the practical element of Craft magic, and we don’t even have to be witches to be able to read the portents. But it helps!

In her new book Melusine Draco examines many of the time-honoured methods employed. As well as covering their history, she describes how modern witches can use the techniques - along with exercises to try out. Pagan Portals - Divination: By Rod, Birds and Fingers is a companion volume to Pagan Portals: By Spellbook and Candle and Pagan Portals: By Wolfsbane and Mandrake Root. These are books I have found to be very well researched and packed full of useful information. Divination is one of my favourite subjects, but I certainly learnt a new thing or two from reading Melusine Draco's latest book in the series. ~ Lucya Starza , www.badwitch.co.uk
Praise for Melusine Draco's title Pagan Portals: By Wolfsbane & Mandrake Root: 'Draco’s book is a very good introduction to the ancient arte and history of poisons which goes back certainly beyond 4,500 years and probably throughout human history. I like Draco’s writing style which is both authoritative and accessible; I feel as if she’s talking with me over a cup of tea and I really like that.' ~ Elen Sentier, author and Shaman
