Nature Divination

Color of the day:  Black
Incense of the day:  Pine

Augury is an ancient form of divination. Simplified, it’s the act of asking a question and then observing the behavior of nature to get an answer.

Go to a place with wildlife, such as a park or other natural area. Find a quiet spot to sit down comfortably, preferably away from other people. Close your eyes and ask your question. When you open your eyes, sit and watch for a while. What animals do you see, and how are they behaving? Birds in a loud flock represent upheaval and travel, while a single bird singing loudly signals a message. A squirrel gathering food indicates that you need to start preparing for change. Even insects are important: if a fly keeps annoying you by landing on your face, your situation requires immediate action.

Also pay attention to the weather. Did a cloud suddenly block out the sun? Did the wind pick up suddenly and give you a chill? Both of those things are a warning.

The more you practice this, the more you will come to understand nature’s messages.
