Nichusch is a Kabbalistic term meaning prophetical indication, which deems that all things and natural happenings have a secret connect and interact upon each other. Therefore, it is believed that practically everything may become an object of soothsaying-the flight of birds (Augury), movements of clouds (Chaomancy), cries of animals, events happening to humankind, and so on. Man himself can become Nichusch by saying if such and such things occur it will be seen as a good or bad omen. A.G.H.
