Botanomancy

 



A method of 
divination by burning branches of vervein and briar upon which questions of the practitioners have been carved. The fire and smoke indicate the course of future action to be pursued.

A variant method is the scattering of vervein and heather leaves in a high wind to get indications of future actions to be taken.

These methods are related to halomancyA.G.H.
