|12:51 pm - Version 1 of a Crane Divination Set|
Here's version one of the Crane Divination I mentioned a couple of weeks ago:
I've had a couple of people "feeling it out" and we've found some ways to improve it so far. I think that there will be more to come on that front in the near future, but this will give you an idea of what it might look like.
seamus_mcnasty and I have received our laser, but won't be able to fully make use of it, we don't think, until sometime early next month or so. We've also decided to step up the process of finding a location, though it's unlikely to quite look like what we had originally thought. More on that later, I'm sure.
But, we're looking forward to having some unique, amazing things at Trillium!
(If you haven't registered for Trillium yet, you should!)
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: awake
Current Music: "Come Monday", -JB
*giggles* Thank you for putting voice to my initial thought.
Will you being listing an outline of how you did it? I am doing a Tarot deck of prehistoric animals (dinos, mammals, and others), and am always interested in how others approached the oracle set-up.
Yeah: I'm in the process of sort of "feeling this out" as a potential workshop down the road, too. A sort of "theory and practice behind divination sets" sort of things. We might be able to do it where, during the workshop you design your own divination set, and then we send it to you after producing it on demand :)
I think that your idea would be pretty rockin'. I've been reading your posts on various prehistoric animals from time to time :)
It is sort deciding on your icon set and then working from there. Divination I think is more than simply knowing the symbols and their meanings. I think there is a deeper one of tying the icon to time (past, present, and future) anchoring it, and then going from there.
As to the prehistoric animals, because of my brain injury, I have no sense of time. (It became colours - January was blue, yellow, and white.) So I can zip around in deep time with no problem. I end up at the nexus of Nature Spirit and Ancestor. :)
Indeed, I've found the process of healing that you've been going through to be very intriguing.
One thing that I noticed when I put the Buffett Oracle
together is that having an intimate knowledge of the symbols (in this case, lyrics) really lead to a depth of meaning with the reading, and it built the connections very strongly. I don't get the same feeling with the Rush Oracle
, even though they're similar items, mostly because I don't know a lot of Rush songs.

I love this. I can't wait to try it out.
Indeed! You get actual Gaulish cranes there!
Haha. That makes me very happy, in an odd sort of way. :)
Wow, our sister grove Three Bulls Grove,ADF....hahahahhaa
All this talk of lasers makes me wonder how you plan on producing these.
