Synopsis: From time immemorial, humankind has tried to unocver the meaning of divining the future. While druids followed the stars and Greeks sought counsel from the Oracle at Delphi, the "spae-wives" of the Scottish highlands found the answers to life in the tea-leaf patterns in their cups. Lines of dust meant journeys, swans foretold of love, and snakes warned of disaster. These and other symbols were passed down from generation to generation. This work reproduces the writings of an anonymous Scottish seer who recorded the secrets of the ancient art of reading tea leaves, including an alphabetical list of the various signs and their meanings. It features illustrations of sample cups, and their interpretations show how to weave and balance the symbols together, transforming a cup of tea into the voice of the Fates. The book combines that manuscript with modern writings on the history and philosophy of foretelling the future.

From the Inside Flap: For the Highland Scots, twists of fate were prefigured in the patterns left at the bottom of one's empty teacup. Reading Tea Leaves is the oldest book on the subject in English. Our guide is an unnamed Highland Seer, who reveals the general principles and practices of tea-leaf reading and provides an alphabetical list of the natural symbols commonly found in a cup and their significance.
