This book covers a plethora of divination topics. Numerology, Runes, Palmistry and Scrying all are included in this extra large book. Generally I'm not big on this size book in a soft cover but this one really needs this extra volume to provide the visual impact needed for explaining these crafts.  The section on crystal reading discusses working with pendulums as well as a deep look at what each stone means. There is a large photo as well as the zodiac signs associated with each stone. There is a crystal directory sheet that the author recommend the reader use with a pendulum to find the stone that speaks to them. Then use the guide to look up the divinatory meaning of the stone.

I tried this out and found the rose quartz, a stone of Taurus and Virgo showing love and reconciliation. It talked about an opportunity to heal old wounds and practicing self love.  Something surely I need to address at the present. 

The next section in the book was related to working with Runes. It discusses the origins of The Elder Futhark, The Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, The Younger Futhark and the Northumbrian Runes. Then delves into to each of the rules with a meaning, an interpretation, the letter sound and even a Tarot card association.  The last, not something I have seen before.  I have been doing a great deal of work lately with FEHU the rune of material wealth.  A friend of mine, owns and operations a site called Primitive Witchery where you can find an assortment of items related to pulling the power of these runes into your daily life.  I recommend working with her if you have the chance.

My favorite chapter of the book is the chapter on Scrying.  It covers, water scrying, candle, flame and smoke scrying, and of course mirror scrying. I have spent many years reading photos and found that my active interest and practice of scrying in all sorts of mediums has helped my readings improve immensely. The key to this is to keep a well documented log of your readings. This book provides an example page of how to log your visions and if you intend to do any type of readings of this manner professionally I would highly recommend beginning with this type of log and just do readings through out the day/week.  Practice on friends and family or even on yourself.  You can never have too much practice at this.

I won't go through each section of the book but I will tell you the chapters that follow include, Teacup readings, Palmistry, Tarot/Playing Card reading, and Numerology.  This is a great getting started book to learn about the assorted methods of divination. I highly recommend checking it out.

Lavishly illustrated with step-by-step instructions, The Ultimate Guide to Divination presents the oracles of the ancients to modern seers, from palm-reading and tea leaves, to fortune-telling with cards, runes, and crystals.
