Ceroscopy is a system of divination by wax. The candle scrying by reading wax images procedure was performed as follows:
- Fine wax was melted in a brass vessel till it was a liquid of uniform consistence.
- Then it was slowly poured into another vessel containing cold water.
- The wax formed into tiny discs.
- The magician or diviner then interpreted the shapes as their meanings appeared to him.
Results of it depend on the candle color and the scrying person energy.
This divinatory method is like molybdomancy. A.G.H.
