Tasseography, or the art of reading one's future through coffee grounds, is a very ancient practice. Sibyls used to use them, women in particular, who could spend entire days trying to see the future. Grouped together in harms, they attempted to interpret their visions. Tasseography originated in Persia, Egypt, and Turkey. It is also known that in the court of the tsars, women regularly practiced this divinatory art.
The divine concentrates itself into the traces left behind, giving us a vision of the future. Clairvoyance requires intuition, and a good clairvoyant is intuitive and open to their sixth sense.
To practice tasseography, you will need a cup, saucer, wooden spatula, a pan, a tablespoon of coffe, a tablespoon of sugar, and some water. Mix together the water, coffee, and sugar in the sauce pan with the spatula. While doing so, think about a question that has been nagging you and concentrate on it. Whatever you do, don't heat the pan up for the time being. Only once you've mixed everything really well should you bring the contents to a boil three times in a row. Next, carefully pour the coffee into the cup while still thinking of your question. Let a few drops of coffee spill onto the saucer, too. Blow onto the coffee grounds left on the saucer. Let sit for a half an hour. Let it slowly dry, and, after a while, an image should appear. If not, trace a horizontal line in it. The meaning will always be different depending on what shapes appear. You might see a bird, a bee, or a circle. We'll give you the meaning of a few of these.

Anything can have a meaning once you've found the right shape. Besides the shapes mentioned above, there can be many, many others. If you use your intuition and common sense, you will have no trouble interpreting them. For example, if you see an eye, try to understand the meaning of it. The eye symbolizes clairvoyance, and so we can deduce that you have a good outlook on things. Your intuition will give you the right answer. Coffee grounds are simply the tool through which your visions are given meaning.
