Reading Tea Leaves: The Modern Mystic's Guide to Tea Leaf Divination (The Modern Mystic Library) (Paperback)
Find your fortune sip by sip
Reading Tea Leaves is your ultimate guide to the ancient art of tasseography—divination with tea leaves. Traditionally a practical, everyday form of divination often practiced by women, tea-leaf reading gave glimpses into the drama of daily life—who was stopping by after supper and if a letter was on the way. The process is simple: brew yourself a cup of loose-leaf tea, settle down somewhere comfy, and sip it intentionally. Once you’ve reached the bottom of the cup, the tea leaves that remain will take the form of shapes and symbols that can give you guidance, spark your intuition, and even give you a hint of the future.
Originally published by an unnamed "Highland Seer" in the early 20th century this new edition has been updated for modern readers and features a foreword by tasseography experts Leanne Marrama and Sandra Mariah Wright. Reading Tea Leaves will teach you everything you need to know to begin reading the leaves yourself. Inside you’ll find a dictionary of symbolic meanings to help you successfully interpret the images you see in the cup, along with ten illustrated example readings to allow you to hone your interpretive skills. Reading Tea Leaves is a warm-hearted invitation to celebrate the small, magical moments we encounter every day.
