The Crystal Ball, by John William Waterhouse, c. 1902
Intro: Scrying is the ancient art of using an object like a mirror or vessel of water to see beyond natural sight and into the spirit world. While many consider scrying to be a strictly pagan practice, in truth it has been used historically in many cultures around the world as late as the 10th century, but possibly centuries prior. Scrying is essentially a type of divining, which in itself is a shamanic art that is seen cross culturally in virtually all ancient civilizations. The most common scrying device is a mirror, but before the technique of making mirrors was perfected, people used polished stone, fire and smoke, or simply a bowl or chalice of water.
Time/planetary hours: Some people prefer to scry only at night or in the dark so that their senses aren’t over stimulated. However scrying can be done anywhere where you can sit and meditate. What’s most important is that you’re in a safe, comfortable, and quite place for messages to come through.
Altar/Decor/Setup & Suggestions:
Incense and smoke can be used for scrying.

Doing work—be it ritual, meditation, journaling—with the intention to align your energy with this open portal’s vibration will speed up and expand the energy and intentions you are putting out. This is a big “leveling up” shift with a sort of a pulsing, electrical feel to it. Mercury will be close to our sun, Sirius, and moon, as well, so communication going in both directions from the heavens ...
