Divining and Foreseeing - Abilities to Be Developed

by Anna Maria Costa Ribeiro

Divining ChildIn Latin: Divining is what comes from the gods.

Divinare = divine.

This ability is a privilege, as was the case with Tiresias – who was punished for saying what others didn’t want to hear. Maybe that is why folks ironize divinations. Or fear them.

Foreseeing is to see beforehand.

Praevidere

Prae = before     videre = to see

Envisaging, as was the case with Prometheus. And who preferred to pay the price.

Interpreting a chart is making predictions. Because the chart itself IS a prediction. Otherwise, there would be no Astrology, neither would it last for millennia. The astrologer is a channel. What they say is what comes from the divine. That is why they should reverence that which is above. Don’t ever be ashamed of working with Astrology – it REQUIRES the capacity to foresee. And this is an ability to be developed. Every gift should be developed. No Druid became one just because they were born with certain abilities: they would spend about 20 years learning and perfecting. Those who don't develop a gift, do not respect it, do not deserve it.

Techniques are important to start with. But they will never be the MOST important thing. Anyone with a degree in the Humanities knows that what is learned in college is important, but not enough, as it will never be compared to practice. Practice separates the wheat from the chaff. For this reason, the Astrology teacher should give consultations. Otherwise, they will merely repeat theories, many of which are questionable and will not be soul-fulfilling for the client or student.

ChartEvery teaching or consultation is selective, as you are attracted to what you have an affinity with. It is like going into a shop with many objects and selecting what interests you. Techniques are formal, limiting. Life has variables and uncertainties, as Quantum Physics well knows, as well as those who have lived intensely. Therefore, it takes much more than technique to foresee. Start by not using frills, not restricting yourself to the basics or rules. Life shows what it is made of soon enough. Because life’s rule is: to experiment, be disappointed and find miracles.

Astrology shows life being lived. As much as the other Occult Sciences: Tarot, Runes, Numerology, Past Lives, etc.

Observe people for around 5 minutes and divine their future: if a person regards themselves as a victim, their future will be to be a victim. Except if they are pretending to be one to gain people's attention. Those who use deception will have a future of deception. Those who attack will be attacked, and so on and so forth. The sharp, trained eye soon notices ulterior motives. Interpretation and prediction are observation and personal life experience, they are knowledge and expansion of consciousness. The naïve astrologer soon shuts down his stand.

If you don’t have any children, how can you analyze a child’s chart?
If you’ve never worked for a company, how can you analyze a company’s chart?
If you’ve never lived together, how can you analyze synastry?
f you’ve never been subjected to past lives regressions, how can you analyze Karmic Astrology?
ShrimpIf you’ve never eaten shrimp, how can you know what shrimp taste like, or whether you are allergic to them?

Divining is one of the most ancient practices. One does not survive adequately without divining, predicting, perceiving. The hunters, the Neanderthals had to divine animal footsteps and the movement of leaves, etc. Agriculturalists had to perceive the cycles and plan, perceive if it was going to rain or not.

All of us crave signs. Vibes are signs, they give directions. But there is only one certain future: Death. In the meantime, there are intermediate futures. Enjoy them. Because everything you are or have will eventually cease to exist.

Divining is deducing, having mental/emotional/spiritual development. Divination comes in various guises: intuition, inspiration, creativity.

Divining, my dear, is a sign of intelligence.

Any scientist knows that. They’re experts in divining. Besides, they have a deep mystical sense – otherwise, they wouldn’t spend years doing research on something without caring about criticisms and rejections. Because, internally, they know that the occult is more reliable than what is in one’s face, or than techniques.

Foreseeing is a healthy predisposition. Trained and taught by NASA, as a client who works there once told me. At Harvard and MIT there are Poker side courses, a kind of Tarot, to practice both making decisions and finding solutions fast by observing, listening to the unsaid. Tarot and Runes are excellent to practice developing intuition. Don’t worry about Astrology being accepted as a science because it already is.

Astrology is the Science of Deductions.

Anything you do efficiently is a pride to the group you represent. I don’t want you to tell me what is going to happen, I want you to tell me about the Vector. Leave the rest to me. I can deal with my facts. That’s what I myself do too. I see the vector and off I go. Follow your transits. Give them offerings, commit yourself to their vibrations.

Respect the transits, no whining allowed.

Details never matter: they change all the time. It doesn’t even matter if you’re going to succeed or not. Whoever asks that question is insecure and the risk of failure is great. What really matters is to do something, to go somewhere! Go forward! Because one learns from mistakes. And those who hesitate, lose strength.

Do whatever your chart demands. Yet it will never give you everything: only part of it. So that you don’t get lazy.

Learn from life and whoever knows more than you. Learn from your mistakes and from other people’s. The classical interpretation is about: observing and deducing. Quantum Physics states:

  • foresee hypothesis, because anything can change at any moment;
  • nothing should be taken for granted, except death;
  • you can go from the present to the past, from the past to the future. You can go wherever you want.

Fractal And speaking of which: where do you want to go? Free yourself from rules, as they might be walls. The human being is subject to constant shifts; when the wind blows, everything changes. But when you have an interest in something, your eyes shine: and you rejuvenate. Foreseeing is perceiving what is happening in the moment, as this is what will bring about an event. Those who know how to see, also know how to foresee. Knowing how to see is not everyone’s gift, as it depends on the emotional state, among other things.

The right moment is:

  • when you’ve thought about something – because if you haven’t, it’s not the right moment;
  • when life brings you something;
  • and the way something happens depends on you, on your personality.

Foreseeing is to say WHEN. And using it. Divining means perceiving where things are going, having some kind of subjective radar. Don’t wait for the right moment to do something. There’s no better moment than this one when you have a craving for something or when something has been brought to you. It is Destiny whispering to you.

But if you really don’t have the right conditions to do that which has been brought to you, at least start paving the way. Because that will be a way of getting closer to the future. Then, far away will soon become near.
