At the root, scrying covers a great many methods of divination, covering many of the others we have and will look at. It is less a defined form than some of the others we’ve studied, but a fascinating discipline.
Today’s Dark Divination story is by the talented Michael Fassbender. In “Miroir de Vaugnac,” he gives us the tale of a seer who has purchased a storied scrying mirror, a silver bowl with a polished bottom that will allow her to better see images for her clients.
To use such a bowl, the practitioner would fill it with water and stare into the depths.
In the story, a key element is a Cŵn Annwn, which I found particularly fascinating, as it was a creature I’d never heard of before. It’s always lovely to learn new folklore!
