Egyptian-Style Tea Leaf Readings

To learn how to foretell the future and get answers 
and gain insight into your most urgent questions, 
Egyptian-style tea leaf reading is one scrying 
method that is a simple means of tapping into your 
intuition and developing confidence and imagination. 
It's easy to start and requires no special tools; 
only a cup of tea made from loose tea leaves is needed. 
Of course, you must drink the tea, as it is the 
configuration of the leaves at the bottom 
of the cup that is the object of divination.
When learning a new divination technique, 
I suggest getting a journal and writing down 
the time and date of your reading. 
This way, you can refer back to it after a 
period of time and re-evaluate your interpretations. 
This is particulalry useful when the situation 
surrounding the divination has changed.
In divination, your first gut reaction is the correct one. 
It is important to trust your intuition.  
Look at the leaves and go with your first instinct. 
Below is a list of symbols and their meanings.
