A Special Post from The New Forest Fairy Festival

Posted by Kahli Scott on

The only thing more special than finding your own magical self is finding a community of other magically minded people to be a part of. Dragonspace is a place where dragon-lovers, Wiccans, occultists, artists, clairvoyants and more meet and collide, but there are communities all over the world that come together to celebrate, bond and believe in the unbelievable. One of our Dragonspace staff members had the chance to visit one such place over in England last weekend.

Divination at Dragonspace

Posted by Kahli Scott on

Abacomancy, geloscopy, haruspicy, cleromancy, floriography...It might all sound like a foreign language, but it’s actually just the tip of the iceberg that is the wonderful world of divination. Cultures all over the world have practiced divination for centuries. While often considered to be ‘fortune-telling’, divination is much more multifold and complex.
