Wind Scrying

The ancient art of foretelling the future by studying wind is also known as anemoscopy.

To divine the future, a practitioner observes the wind direction and speed. He or she will also study the dust clouds lifted by the wind. This is used to identify problematic issues from the future.

In a related method, a question is posed. The diviner than tosses a handful of dirt or sand into the air. By studying the shape of the dust cloud, the future may be foretold.

In an unusual technique, a pendulum is positioned over top of a circle. Within this circle, letters, runes, or glyphs are used. The pendulum is allowed to swing freely in the breeze. The soothsayer records the movement of the pendulum over the letters in order to determine the response.

Perhaps you have heard whispers in the wind. Often, the rushing air will carry voices from this world or the next. By listening closely and interpreting the sounds, you may find the information you seek.

Indigenous people across the globe used wind scrying to communicate with God’s and spirits. To this day, many Native American tribes still communicate with wind spirits.

The ancient Greeks preferred wind scrying in a sacred grove dedicated to the God Zeus. In Dodona, “wands” were hung from sacred oak trees. When the wind blew, these wants would strike brass basins. Soothsayers would study and interpret both the sounds and the wind speed and direction to determine future events.
