Astrology dice are a fascinating divination tool that allow you to receive guidance from the stars. These colorful dice are engraved with the 12 zodiac signs, allowing you to cast your astrological chart in a fun and easy way. In this in-depth blog post, we’ll explore the history, meaning, and uses of these magical dice.
A Brief History of Astrology Dice
The origins of astrology dice can be traced back thousands of years to ancient civilizations like Babylon that used astrology to make decisions. While the exact history is unknown, many believe dice engraved with zodiac symbols were used in divination rituals and games. Astrology dice became popular again in the 1960s and 70s during the New Age movement and have continued to grow in popularity to this day.
Casting Your Astrological Chart
Casting your chart with astrology dice is easy and straightforward. To begin, you’ll need a set of dice with each of the 12 zodiac signs engraved on them – Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Sit quietly and focus on a question you want guidance on. When you’re ready, roll the dice to receive your astrological chart.
The first roll represents your sun sign, describing your core personality and identity. The second roll represents your moon sign, revealing your inner emotions and intuition. Roll the remaining dice to discover your Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto signs. Each planet will offer deeper insight into a different area of your life.
For example, if your first roll is Cancer and your second roll is Pisces, you have a Cancer Sun and Pisces Moon. This means you likely have a caring, nurturing personality but also a deep inner world of imagination and spirituality. Take time to reflect on how each zodiac energy applies to you.
Interpreting the Meaning
Once you’ve cast your astrological chart, it’s time to interpret the meaning. Examine the element (fire, earth, air, water) and modality (cardinal, fixed, mutable) of each sign. Fire and air signs are more outwardly expressive, while earth and water signs are more inwardly focused. Cardinal signs initiate, fixed signs stabilize, and mutable signs adapt.
Also consider any planets that fall in their ruling signs. For example, if you rolled Virgo as your Mercury, communication is optimized as Mercury rules Virgo. See which houses of your chart are occupied and empty – areas with multiple planets will be emphasized in your life. Pay attention to any patterns or configurations in the signs. With thoughtful analysis, you will unlock the messages within your astrological dice chart.
Using Astrology Dice for Divination
Astrology dice are a fantastic divination tool for gaining insight on any topic or question. Here are some ideas for using astrology dice in divination rituals:
- Ask a question, then roll the dice to receive an astrological answer
- Make a list of options or possibilities, assigning each one a number. Roll the dice to select the corresponding number.
- For yes/no questions, designate certain signs as yes and others as no. Roll the dice and note which sign comes up.
- Roll the dice while concentrating on a desire to manifest. The chart may reveal opportunities or blockages.
- Cast a dice chart for someone else who needs guidance. Interpret the signs from their perspective.
There are endless ways to tap into the wisdom of the stars using astrology dice. Follow your intuition when creating divination rituals with them.
Crafting Your Own Astrology Dice
Part of the magic of astrology dice is making your own unique set. You’ll need 12 blank dice, colored marker pens, sealer, and astrology stickers or stencils. Carefully draw or apply each zodiac symbol to a die, sealing once dry. As you craft each die, visualize its energy. Infuse the dice with your intentions for divination and guidance. Customizing your dice makes them even more powerful divination tools.
We’ve only scratched the surface of the many uses for astrology dice. With an open mind and spirit of experimentation, you can discover countless ways to harness the stellar power of these fascinating tools. Whether you’re an astrology enthusiast or divination novice, astrology dice are sure to unlock new insights and perspectives. Let the cosmos guide you on your journey. The stars await!
