Abacomancy: Divination by observing dust patterns

I have fantastic news! Abacomancy is a thing! Finally, all you lazy fortune-tellers out there have the perfect excuse to never wash your car!

It’s divination by observing the patterns of dust on a surface—and similar to how you might divine with tea leaves or coffee grounds in your mug. Here’s how it works:

  • To begin, find a dusty surface. This may take awhile. I’ll wait here. Eh hem.
  • Notice if there are any obvious signs in the dust—pictures or images springing to mind (it’s similar to seeing shapes in the clouds).
  • Interpret the sign.

Not sure where to begin? Fantastic! The Lenormand symbolic dictionary is a great place to start. Look for the Lenormand card symbols in your dirt and then interpret the meaning from there. Here’s a link to download my Learn Lenormand in 5 Minutes handout, if you need a kick in the pants.

So now I must know, what are your dusty bookshelves trying to tell you?
