Oracles, Runes, Tarot & Pendulums
We have a range of divination tools available, including card decks and books for oracles, tarot, and runes. We also have pendulums that can be used for divination or healing.
Oracles are decks of cards that attempt to give a short answer to the questions you pose. They are very good for picking a card to clarify current situations, or for doing a short reading on pressing dilemmas. They are usually at least half the size of a tarot card deck and are often easier to handle because of a smaller card size. Often, they will come with a small instruction book, too.
Tarot cards are decks that can give a greater depth to your readings and provide complex answers to complicated questions. Their size is much larger in the hand, and some need a bit of ingenuity to shuffle as the artwork is more of a focus than convenience! There are usually 78 cards in tarot deck, and each edition has its own methodology and assumptions - but there are basic layouts that are common to all tarot readings. Tarot readings can be used to provide short oracles, as well. It's up to you how you use them. Although most tarot decks come with a small instruction book, for complex readings, especially when you are still learning, it can be good to purchase the full books that are often available as companions to each deck.
Runes are a form of divination reaching back to ancient times and can be made from stone, wood, glass or gemstones. They are usually small enough so they can be easily pouched, and thrown into a quickly drawn circle on the ground, or onto a cloth or a piece of paper with a circle drawn on it. The position of the thrown runes determines what place it has in the reading, and runes that clump together bring a more in-depth quality to the reading. While we have gemstone runes sourced from others, we also create our own runes at Lilipily Spirit, made from wood or stone, which are imbued with activated energy for blessing and guidance. These come with a sheet of instructions to get you started.
There are usually 24 nordic runes or 25 when the modern blank rune, or Wyrd, is added. Celtic runes are quite different. They were not used for divination in ancient times, being more for accounting and legal contracts - but there are modern divination methods using celtic runes, today. Celtic runes can make wonderful bindrunes for talismans and amulets. Nordic runes are also often used as talismans and amulets, either as the single runes or as bindrunes - which are patterns created from the overlapping or conjuction of two or more runes. You can find pendant forms of our own rune crafts under the Jewelry section of this website, along with metal pendant runes made by others.
Pendulums are another way of divining, using grids similar to ouija boards. They can also be used in metaphysical healing, to assess and realign the energy points in the body.
Whatever form of divination you use, a key element in its use is a good handle on your own intuitive and psychic abilities, along with a thread of common sense to guide you. Divination tools are only ever as good as the person interpreting them.
