This is lor private readings done with a magickal slant You hand the sitter a book or chart of talismans. There ire thirty or so, and beneath each of them is a line of calligraphic script indicating what problems and questions they assist in solving. The talismans are drawn in several colors.

As divination effects they are much more...
