Could this form of scrying help you understand more about your future? White witch Tudorbeth reveals how to have a crack at oomancy…
The immortal question of what came first, the chicken or the egg, is as old as oomancy. This spring-inspired form of divination has been performed all over the world for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. In fact, it is believed the girls in Salem, Massachusetts used it until they were brought to trial during the famous Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692. Oomancy is very similar to other forms of divination, which are often referred to as scrying. There are several ways we can scry, whether with crystal balls or using stones, glass, cards, mirrors, tea, coffee, metals, flowers, water, fire, smoke and more. Oomancy is usually performed in spring as a part of Ostara and the vernal equinox celebrations.
Try it yourself
There are two ways of performing oomancy. One is to pierce an egg and hold it over a clear glass of water. As the white of the egg oozes out into the liquid it will make shapes. The other way is more traditional and involves piercing an egg and holding it over a bowl of hot water. This will preferably be a dark bottomed bowl as this enables you to see the shapes better. As the egg white drips into the boiling water, say: “Show what hides from me, egg in water clarity.” If you have a particular question, ask it at this time and see what the egg says.
