Divination With Dominoes

Posted by spiritedenterprise on November 5, 2013 at 9:00 AM

The practice of divining with dominoes is "travelers" magick or gypsy magick.

You can use store-bought dominoes if you like.  Many of the old schoolers tend to use dominoes carved from bone.

Place your dominoes face down. Shuffle them prior to each draw.

Usually one question is asked and 3 dominoes are drawn and interpreted.

I know that there are books out there on the subject, but I've found that most of what is out there is not what I was taught. Just as in tarot, there has to be room for interpretation as the dominoes apply to the question and it seems that a lot of writers have given a more "precise" meaning than what was originally taught.

Meaning of the "Bones" as I was taught by my grandmother:

Double-six - Indicates that an opportunity will open to the querant. 

Six-five - Indicates that the querant will experience some sort of popularity or recognition.

Six-four - Indicates that the querant may have a run-in with the law or legal system.

Six-three - Indicates that travel is either necessary or beneficial.

Six-two - Indicates recovery or a streak of good health. Can also indicate that a gift will be well-received.

Six-one - Reminds the querant that a friendly thought, action or kind deed with nothing expected in return can make all the difference in the lives of those around them.

Six-blank - Reminds the querant not to get caught up in scandal or bickering among friends as the consequences of doing so are almost always negative.

Double-five - A move of some sort will become necessary. Whether is a change in career, moving to a new location or a separation of some sort, it will soon become evident to the querant as to why it is a necessary change.

Five-four - Now is a time to rely on intuition. If the querant is thinking it, it is more than likely true.

Five-three - Visiting with someone the querant respects in regards to their question will add new insight and be beneficial on many levels.

Five-two - The querant may want to consider a short vacation or some time alone to reflect.

Five-one - This domino almost always relates to love and/or relationships. Someone that the querant has taken an interest in has or will have an interest in them too.

Five-blank - Indicates an illness or a death of an acquaintance - someone who is not related or distantly related. In this situation, the querant should be prepared to be a friend.

Double-four - Be wary of bad habits as they can be especially harmful now.

Four-three - What the querant thinks is happening or will possibly happen is a product of the imagination. Over-thinking is not beneficial now. Its time to let things go.

Four-two - Warns the querant to keep an eye out for those who have less than honest intentions.

Four-one - Reminds the querant to keep up with debt. Now is not the time to make purchases that one cannot afford. 

Four-blank - A friend or lover may be angered because of the querants actions or lack of action. This may be the best possible way for the querant to see this individuals true colors.

Double-three - A relationship, engagement or wedding may leave the querant feeling annoyed or angry. The best course of action is to stay out of it or let it go. It is not a decision that the querant should be invested in.

Three-two - Avoid taking chances when it comes to matters of the heart and games of chance. Now is not the querant's time.

Three-one - A great discovery or opportunity is at hand.

Three-blank - This domino almost always indicates a conception or birth - sometimes this is a literal conception or birth - other times it is the conception of an idea or plan or the birth of a new adventure.

Double-two - Someone in the querant's life maybe feeling jealous. A partner, lover, friend or relative. The querant should do their best to calm the situation before it becomes heated.

Two-one - This is a complicated domino. It almost always indicates something to do with property. Gaining property, selling property, an additional mortgage, etc. It is a reminder to read the fine print and do research before deciding whether or not this is a good decision.

Double-one - Now is a time for treasure hunting. What the querant finds now will be worth more later.

One-blank - Someone from afar is keeping their eye on the querant. It is a reminder for the querant to mind their ps and qs.

Double-blank - The most ominous of all the bones. Trouble is on the horizon. The querant will not be prepared for whats coming nor can it be avoided.

No more than three dominoes should be drawn for any one question. The gypsies recommended only one question/three dominoes in any given month.
