Reading The Wax Drippings from Your Wax Divination
The most common, because of the way the wax rotates on the surface of the water, spirals represent reincarnation, the universe, the world, or perhaps a particular life. It could be you need to evolve beyond it, or that it is something from a previous life. Perhaps, depending on the nature of the question, the problem (or its solution) is in the home. This is an excellent example of how interpretation must be a personal thing; no one else can tell you exactly how these symbols relate to you. Usually, the first meaning that comes into your mind is the correct one.
Circles represent eternity and fertility, and both of these attributes can be interpreted according to the question asked. Fertility would perhaps represent a new activity, financial security, or even a new baby on the way! It may also signify the successful completion of a project. Eternity may mean just that— it will be a long time before something is completed or comes to pass. Circles also represent religion and spirituality, and thus can be seen in this context during interpretation.
If the wax drops form into lines but they aren’t connected, it represents a scattering of forces, or a lack of focus in your life, business, or other pursuits. It can also signify forces working against you, but don’t take this too literally—such forces may well be within your own being. This isn’t a positive pattern to find, for it is a sign that changes must be made to bring order into your life.
Unconnected wax drops are sometimes the only thing you can get. As stated before, this sometimes signifies lack of attention on the divination, but it can also mean that the problem is too complex for an answer at this time. If you try wax divination several times with only dots coming up each time , you’re either asking the wrong questions or, if you haven’t asked one, you shouldn’t be seeking a glimpse into the future at this time— at least not through wax and water. It’s probably best to let the candles and water rest , and to attempt a different method— perhaps one mentioned elsewhere in this book.
