Interpreting dreams and omens, dowsing, and reading the stars are just some of the ways used to explore the future. This guide is an historical and cultural record of the way we imagine our destiny. Since ancient times, divination has helped us to understand our place in the world and to connect us to the forces that shape it. Contrary to popular belief, divination does not reveal an implacable fate, but allows us to see forces that are active in our lives and to work with them in creating our future. This book should interest anyone concerned with what the present holds and what the future may bring.
