Ceromancy means ‘candle divination’. The idea is that you ask a question and interpret the flame, how the candle burns, and the smoke patterns and wax formations as a response to your question. You can use any candle for ceromancy – but before you start, you need a clear idea of what you want to ask.
‘Before you begin with any divination, formulate your question. In my work as a tarot teacher and reader, I help people to formulate questions that reflect their situations,’ explains Liz. ‘It’s best to avoid questions that require a simple yes or no answer such as, “Will he/ she come back?” because they limit the reading. A good reading will explore the myriad of possibilities so a better question to ask would be, “What do I need to know now?” The answer to the original question will usually arise within a broader, more rewarding reading.’
