๐ŸŒธ From my personal grimoire! Another random idea at work again! Hereโ€™s part 2 of my seashell divination series! Iโ€™ve been trying to develop this method for some time, this method works best if you only read between 1~5 shells when divining them. I only use the major arcana to assign the shells since 22 shells is quite enough rather than using all major and minor arcana cards and assigning them all which is waay too much! ๐ŸŒธ

๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ Things youโ€™ll need: ๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ

โ€ข Basket of mixed shells or select the shells on the list below!

โ€ข Cloth, hanky or dolly to cover the basket

โ€ข Herb bundle or sage/rosemary incense

โ€ข Seashell correspondence list

๐Ÿ’ Cover and pick method ๐Ÿ’

โ€ข Ask your question. Cleanse, cover and gently shake the basket close your eyes and pick your shells . Pick between 1 or 5 shells for better reading. You dont wanna pick more than 5 otherwise thereโ€™s too much frustration.

โ€ข If the shells you picked has an open mouth or the hole is up itโ€™s a reversed meaning. Closed mouth or the hole is facing down you can just read the shell as it is!

๐ŸŽฒ Tossing method ๐ŸŽฒ

โ€ข Ask yourself a question. Cleanse, shake and gently toss the shells on the mat. Letโ€™s say Iโ€™m doing a 3 shell reading.(you can pick shells between 1~5)
Iโ€™ll chose one shell thatโ€™s nearest to me and the second shell in the middle and third shell farthest away from me then divining your shells

โ€ข When picking your shells you donโ€™t want to turn the mouth or hole facing downwards leave as it is! Since this is a reversed meaning.
