Dark Divinations Scries Again!

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!

Other methods of scrying can be found, like a mirror, or a crystal pendant, and there are plenty of people willing to teach you how to practice this art.

Anyway, it’s getting late for my post, so I’ll stop there. Remember to check out Horror Addicts.net and get your copy of the book!
