The Bean Toss



Slavic Gypsies use beans for divination. The querent is asked to give the dukker a coin and this is held in the dukker's hand. Both the beans and the coin are shaken up whie the dukker concentrates on the querent's question. The dukker then opens her hands and allows the beans and coin to fall freely onto a flat surface. The coin represents the querent, and the positions of the beans in relation to the coin are what is interpreted. There are nine beans. Once they have landed on the surface, the beans that land in the area in front of the dukker represent the present; the area farthest away, the future. Two, three, or more beans lying close together indicate very powerful forces:

Three or more beans in a straight line indicate a journey.
Three or more beans in a curved line indicate a setback or delay.
A "tight" triangle (with the three beans only about an inch apart) indicates money.
A "loose" triangle (with the three beans more than an inch apart) indicates a woman.
A rectangle of four beans indicates a man.
A five-stone star (a pentacle) indicates good luck.
A six-stone star (like the Star of David) indicates business success.
A four stone diamond indicates trouble with the law.

Thirty Plus
This is a Tarot reading that uses 32 cards. Remove the 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s and Knights from your Tarot deck to obtain the desired number. Or, if you are using a standard deck of playing cards, just remove the 2s-6s.



After shuffling and cutting the cards, the dukker takes the top and bottom cards from the deck and puts them to one side. This is sometimes referred to as "the surprise." Next, three cards are dealt, face down, in a straight line, from right to left. Three more cards are placed on top of those, then three more, and so on, in the same manner. The pile on the left represents the past, the pile in the center is the present, and the pile on the right is the future.

First, pick up the pile on the left, the past, and lay them out in a row, from left to right, and interpret them. Next, lay the cards from the middle stack in a row directly beneath the past, and interpret. Then lay the future cards out in a row below the present and read those. Finally, turn over the two cards that you set aside in the beginning - "the surprise." They represent a sudden turn of events that will have a direct impact on the querent's future - a situation that will likely arise during the unfolding of events indicated by the 10 "future" cards.

Shuffle the deck and then cut it with, with your left hand, into three piles. Pick up the piles, placing the right-hand pile on top of the center pile, and then the left-hand pile on top of them all.

Flip the stack of cards over so that you can see the bottom card. Spread the bottom three cards and select the one that is highest from the deck and place the other two off to the side. Work your way through the entire deck this way.

Then, pick up the stack of cards that you laid aside and shuffle them together. After shuffling them, look through them to see if there are any sets of three of any value or suit in a row. If there are, then pull them out of the deck and lay them face up to the right of the cards that you selected on the first round. Next, spread out the original cards along wtih the set(s) of three to their right and read them from left to right.

Six Piles
This is a form of card divination that uses thirty-two cards. Remove the 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s and Knights from your Tarot deck to obtain the desired number. Or, if you are using a standard deck of playing cards, just remove the 2s-6s.



Select a "Significator," a King, Queen, Jack or Page, to represent the querent. A black or very dark-haired person would be represented by spades or swords; a medium-brown-haired person by clubs or wands; a light-brown-haired person by diamonds or pentacles; and a very light-haired person by hearts or cups. Men are represented by Kings, women by Queens, and young people of both genders by the Jacks or Pages. Once you have selected the card, place it in the center of teh table.
Next, ask the querent to shuffle the deck. Once they are satisfied with the mix, take the deck from them and deal six cards in a circle around the Significator. Do this twice more so that you have six piles with three cards each. The piles are numbered clockwise, number one being where you started dealing from (usually in the top right position). Pile number one represents the querent; number two represents the querent's home; number three represents the querent's friend (especially a close friend); number four represents the querent's work; number five represents what the querent holds dearest in their heart; and number six represents what the querent can expect in the immediate future. Turn over each of cards and interpret them, one at a time, according to their position in the circle.
