The Magpie Oracle: Casting Shiny Objects for a Bright Future.
Diviners are a resourceful lot and for thousands of years they've made use of everyday items for oracle casting. Objects like bones, feathers, seeds and shells were charged as magical tools that built accurate results. In this gathering we will look at the rich history of collection oracles and how they were put to use. We will also discover the hidden forecast existing in the everyday by taking up the Magpie Oracle— a shiny modern casting oracle with an ancient kick. Together we will put to the test a number of casting traditions and overlay them with tarot, Lenormand, and numerology. Each will offer deep insight for finding immediate answers. This is one of my most attended and favorite workshop offerings as the take away is immediate and user friendly. Sample Magpie Oracles will be available on a first-come, first served basis. All levels welcome and encouraged.
