Using Dices for Divination


Throughout history dices have been used for gaming and gambling but did you know that they´v been also used as a form of divination. Divination from dices is called podomantia. Oldest dices are from ancient Persia from the area of modern Iran and they are approximately 5000 years old. In Chinese dices number 1 is often painted with red color because red is color of good luck in Chinese cultures. Many times in Chinese dices numbers are painted black and red. Origins of modern dices are in ancient Rome in a flat small object called Alea. Alea had two sides. On the other side it read yes and on the other side no. Other end of alea was round and the other end was squire. Alea was rolled like a dradle and when it fall down person could interpret the message. Later on alea developed into a dice that had four sides. First dices were made of animal tooths and bones. After that dices that had six sides appeared and they were often made from clay, ivory and stone. Now days most dices are made of plastic or wood. In divination purposes dices were thrown against large flat stones, animal skins and to the top of shaman drums. In divination numbers symbolize different possibilities and actions that you can take in your life.

How to Interpret Dices

For divination it is recommended to use three six-sided dices. If you are outside find a large flat stone or draw a circle into the sand. If you are inside you can also draw a circle. Roll the dices in your hands and think about those things that you wish to get some clarity. Throw dices into the circle.

Only interpret the ones that are inside the circle. If none of the dices get into the circle this is not the right time for divination but you will get to wish something.
