Learn the basics of how to read secret signs and symbols to provide insight, inspiration, and direction about the future.

This accessible and beautifully designed guide includes a frameable poster featuring popular methods of divination.

Divination is the art of extracting hidden meaning from the present by using supernatural tools, or oracles, as guidance for the future. Some ancient divinatory methods may seem primitive now, such as shamans in antiquity observing animal entrails, while some methods have remained popular throughout the ages. Diviners today still use methods that draw on the environment, including reading runes or cards, floromancy (reading flowers), and even conchomancy (reading seashells). Our questions might differ from our ancestors’, but we still harbor the same basic needs and keen desire to know, understand, and improve the future. To help you see and change it for the better, learn:
  • what tools you need for each method
  • tips to enhance any reading
  • how best to phrase questions for the oracle
  • systems of interpretation
  • how to present information in a tactful, compassionate, empowering way
  • and more
There’s something here for every diviner, and you can use what you already have on hand for magickal purposes. Combining elegance and expertise, this is your essential modern guide to an ancient tradition.

The In Focus series applies a modern approach to teaching the classic body, mind, and spirit subjects. Authored by experts in their respective fields, these beginner’s guides feature smartly designed visual material that clearly illustrates key topics within each subject. As a bonus, each book includes reference cards or a poster, held in an envelope inside the back cover, that give you a quick, go-to guide containing the most important information on the subject.

Questo libro è carino se non si conosce nulla di questo mondo e si vogliono sapere tante cose blande in un solo colpo, ma per chi studia da anni non solo saranno cose trite e ritrite, ma pure troppo sincretista e risulta una accozzaglia di concetti.
Tutto sommato non è malissimo se ridimensionato all'idea che sia una grezza infarinatura

Thank you to both #NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group/Wellfleet Press for providing me an advance copy of Steven Bright’s spiritual work, In Focus Divination, in exchange for an honest review.

#InFocusDivination serves as a how-to guidebook on all things divination, including how to read cards from a standard playing set, flowers, runes, gemstones, tarot, charms, dice, tea leaves, and essentially, anything else that provides insight into the signs and symbols around you.

If you are searching for a beginner’s guide to divination, I highly recommend you start here. There are photos, simple descriptions, and it covers all basic information regarding the signs and symbols that people often come across in daily life.

Interesting little book which definitely kept my recent interests active.

I’m keen to practice on what was in the book particularly with crystals.

A great educational book if it’s something you’re intrigued about.

Very informative! I really enjoyed reading and learning about astrology and all the houses and planets and how they factor in my personality and birth chart. It all makes sense now!

Ok so if anyone needed a quick crash course of some different forms of divination, not Tarot or Oracle cards I have found the book for you. There were so many different forms of divination explored here. From Runes to buttons. It is not exactly what I expected when I requested the book nor what I was really looking for but it was still very interesting. I liked all of the visuals that were included so sections are very easily identifiable and understandable. This is a great beginner’s guide if you are looking to explore different kinds of divination.

A really great introduction into divination for people who are curious about expanding their spiritual knowledge. A concise and compelling read with great examples to kick-start your journey into doing readings. As someone with no prior knowledge of how to read any cards, dice, etc, this proved an intelligent and insightful guide which is also highly encouraging.

This was a great dive in to different forms of divination. I really enjoyed learning more about some of the less popular practices.
