ArachnomancyArachnomany pg 2 On Divination if Spiders:
Divination using spiders....
This is from an old book that is falling to pieces that the
Writer says is not their write but was compiled from notes
Collected from various parts of old England...Simply named predicting..
Cannot see the rest of the cover sorry...many many interesting ways of divination
Is described within this book..I found it the other day whilst doing some dusting of
Bookshelves. . ...
This one is for the spiders :)
Seeing a spider in the morning = grief
Seeing a spider at noon = anxiety
Seeing a spider in the evening = financial loss
Seeing a spider spinning a web in the evening = indicates a plot against you...or
Perhaps a gift of new clothes....
this one definitely came to being for me...If any of you remember when
I had spidey I mentioned that had been spinning outside my door at
night* yep there had been someone cooking up something that was not
nice.....good old mother in law was at it again
Hey I was warned and it did not work...lol..
Seeing a spider spinning in the morning = good luck
Seeing a spider spinning its web in the afternoon = good luck
Finding a spiders web in your doorway = a visitor
Seeing a spider climb its its thread = good news
Seeing a spider dropping on its web = good luck unless it reaches the floor,
When then it is bad luck
Finding a spider on your clothes = money, a letter or both
Finding a spider on your body = Good fortune
Finding a small spider with red on = money
Killing a spider =bad luck
Seeing a spider cross a wall = good luck....
Remember these are old wife's tales...hehehhehehe ..perhaps they are
Perhaps they are not *g*
