Students of divination will jump at the opportunity to get their hands on this little gem--the first book in English ever written on African domino oracles. The author is a longtime devotee of Santeria, a religion that grew out of the Yoruba tradition in Cuba. One of the more unique aspects of domino divination is its system of remedies. If a querent gets a negative reading (selecting a double-blank domino--really bad juju--for example), the practitioner gives the querent tasks to do to change their karma so the foretold event won't come to pass. Most remedies are prayers to the Orisha, the pantheon of Yoruban gods. However, if the querent isn't comfortable praying to Ibeji or Orula, the querent may substitute Greek, Norse, Hindu, or Celtic pantheons--whatever he or she prefers. The back of the book has a wonderful selection of prayers to Catholic saints, including prayers to St. Martha, St. Barbara, St. Expeditus, and St. Francis. Other remedies include holy offerings of cornmeal and bathing for purification. --P. Randall CohanFrom the Back Cover:
Would you like to explore the sacred side of the dominos? The Yoruba Domino Oracle explains how to give a domino reading. Domino readings are used most often in Santeria, an offshoot of the Yoruba religious tradition, but anyone can use this divination technique. Unique to this system is the fact that you don't have to passively submit to your fate. You can "make amends", or enhance your good fortune by making offerings and using the remedies described here.
Poenna explains the meaning of each domino and shows you how to read domino combinations. He gives instructions for prayers or offerings to the Yoruba deities or Catholic saints. He explains how to make a novena and provides instructions for ebos -- offerings, spells, and remedies (such as purification baths) -- that you can make to enhance your fortune. While you cannot read your own fate from the dominos, you can help others by learning this system!
