ARC Review - Llewellyn's Complete Book of Divination

Richard Webster, one of the world’s bestselling new age authors, explores the incredible wide variety of divination techniques from around the world. Discover explanations and in-depth techniques for thirty divination practices, including common methods such as tarot, astrology, palmistry, numerology, pendulums, runes, and the I Ching, as well as less well-known forms such as automatic writing, candle reading, coin divination, flower reading, sand divination, and many more. 

Book Breakdown 

There is so much to learn from this book! I honestly just got it because I wanted to read more about tarot, runes, and of my favorite the pendulum. They are my favorite ones to use. That being said, I learned about some ways of divination that I have never even heard of (which isn't that shocking as I've only been learning these things for almost three years so there is lots I don't know), there is candle reading... I didn't even know that was a thing! There is also sand reading... yeah it was so cool to learn about these things. I also got to learn more about the I Ching, which is something that has fascinating but something that never really worked for me. Not to mention there is palmistry which is something else I enjoy. I can't even name everything in this book as there are lots. It covers all the big ones and ones that like I said, didn't even know was a thing. 

I love that they start basic for beginners but there is also things that I learned and think it would be good even for an expert as you can learn something new or even refresh your memory. Not to mention it's a good reference guide, that's what I'll be using it as. It even goes a bit into the history of the different ways. Bottom line: get this book. It's so worth it!
