Learn divination the Conjure way.
The practices of Conjure style divination have, until now, largely been passed down as family secrets unavailable in books. Here, Starr Casas shares her own ancestral traditions of divination, including many tips and techniques. Starr‘s book reminds us that Conjure divination, as author Judika Illes writes in its foreword, it “a basic human skill intended to help us all live our best lives.” Traditionally, Conjure has been the domain of the poor, the disenfranchised, and the oppressed living in regions that were (and often remain) unfriendly to magic and the occult. Conjure divination relies on inexpensive tools that are not exclusively magical and can hide in plain sight.
Divination Conjure Style features illustrations of each playing card created especially for this book by New Orleans artist Josef Bailey. But while playing card divination is her primary focus, Starr also teaches how to handcraft and use your own pendulum, and how to scry with laundry bluing substituting for a crystal ball. Other methods covered include bibliomancy, pyromancy, and throwing the bones.
Starr Casas was born in the mountains of Kentucky and raised in the culture of the Deep South. A professional Conjure woman for over forty years, she is the co-owner of the shop Conjure New Orleans in the French Quarter and author of Old Style Conjure. A beloved teacher, she presents workshops across the United States.
“Starr writes from her heart and from the well of her experience, and anyone about to pick up a deck of cards, a pendulum, or a pair of bent copper rods can benefit from reading it.” ─Cory Thomas Hutcheson, cohost of the New World Witchery podcast and author of 54 Devils: the Art and Folklore of Fortune-Telling with Playing Cards.
