Divination by Tea Leaves
On this site, you will find information on tea leaf reading to predict
the future, which was used since the 17th century.
tea was first brought from the orient in the 17th century, tea drinking
quickly became a popular pastime, and from this emerged the art
of tasseomancy, or tasseography, a type of divination by tea leaves.
Tea leaf reading is one of the most commonly accessible forms of
divination as it requires no special tools or training—just
an awareness of one’s own intuition which can be achieved
through the act of enjoying the tea itself.
is largely dependent on psychic intuition. Tea is poured into a
cup without the use of a strainer. The one seeking psychic help,
the inquirer, consumes all of the tea in the cup. If any moisture
remains it is shaken out onto a napkin. The leaves remain in the
bottom of the cup which the diviner observes to see what patterns
are formed. A letter, heart shape, or a ring might be observed.
There are some standard symbolisms which are observed when interpreting
the patterns: snake (enmity or falsehood), spade (good fortune through
industry), mountain (journey or hindrance), house (change, success).
method is to leave a little moisture in the cup. This allows the
leaves or dregs to be swished around. The cup is the upturned into
the saucer. The reader picks up the cup and begins examining the
formation of the dregs. As in the above described method, the dregs
can form patterns such as letters, numbers, geometric designs, straight
or wavy lines or shapes which resemble animals, birds or objects.
Again, various symbols have particular meanings: straight lines
indicate careful planning and peace of mind, while a cup shape indicates
love and harmony. Time frames are also indicated by estimating the
proximity of the leaves to the rim. Dregs closer to the rim and
handle represent the immediate future, while those at the cup's
bottom indicate the far future. Some diviners say they can only
predict twenty-four hours into the future.
images you see in the leaves can be many and quite varied. They
can consist of letters, numbers, designs, straight or wavy lines
or any number of shapes resembling animals or objects. This is where
your intuition—heightened by your relaxed state—comes
into play. To accurately interpret the leaves, you must allow your
intuition to follow its first impressions of the image, as the conscious
mind will often step in to second guess the intuition. Although
it’s not always easy to allow your intuition free reign, with
practice you can access and maintain the level of intuition necessary
for a successful reading.
