Tea Leaf Reading Symbol Dictionary: Letter Z

A To Z BloggingChallenge-A Is For...Tea Leaf ReadingSymbols (27)

Welcome to the last day of the April Blogging Challenge. I hope you all had a great month and enjoyed this series. I enjoyed visiting the many participants, who had some of the most interesting themes. But, as with all challenges, I am glad it is over.

Today, I am going to leave you with the Tea Leaf Reading Symbol Letter Z:

Letter Z:

Zebra: Disappointment. Travel that does not go as well or as great as you thought. You will realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

I hope you will stop by throughout the month of May, as I have quite a few exiting things to share with you – starting from a wonderful video series that is beginning tomorrow via Creative Live (it’s free), and a few more exciting things.

Blessings!

Tea Leaf Reading Symbol Dictionary: Letter Y

Tea Leaf Reading Symbols Letter Y

Hi, and welcome back. I am sharing with you today the letter Y of our tea leaf reading symbol dictionary. I hope you had fun during this series and learned a lot about tea and tea leaf reading. As I mentioned yesterday, I am working on a book about the subject, and will share with you more information about that soon.

But not before sharing with you a picture of one of my adorable rescue dogs, Athena. She was posing for me this morning, which in her case is rare. She is usually rather camera shy. Not today:

Yacht or large boat: a symbol of wealth and financial freedom

Yew Tree: Someone is leaving you an unexpected help or fortune. A better position is offered to you.

 

Wishing you a fiercely independent day

V Is For Variety – Tea Leaf Reading Symbol Dictionary

A To Z BloggingChallenge-A Is For...Tea Leaf ReadingSymbols (24)Hi there, thanks for being back.

When practicing Tasseomancy or Tea Leaf Reading, you should experiment with the variety of teas you use that work best for you and the one you read for. Keep in mind that some teas create a stimulating experience, while others are calming. I suggest, as a practitioner, and someone who has read for quite a few people, that you should gage the person you are reading for before you choose your tea. Is the person agitated, give them a calming tea, do they look defeated, give them some energy. Always have a variety of teas available. Over the last few weeks, we have spoken extensively about the different types of teas, so feel free to visit those posts again, and compile a list of teas that work the best for you.

Here are today’s tea leaf reading symbols:

Letter V:

Van: Whatever you have been trying out, will work in your favor

Vase: A symbol of overall good health

Vegetables: After the current trouble ends, more pleasant times are on their way

Violin: A positive sign – if you are a musician it speaks of success in your niche.

Vulture: You have received a warning. Be wary, and be cautious in the proceeding. Also, can mean a more overall negative situation in your country or location

Reading Tea Leaves and Coffee – Letter U

A To Z BloggingChallenge-A Is For...Tea Leaf ReadingSymbols (23)

We have been talking about reading tea leaves for almost a month now.

But how does one read coffee?

Reading coffee grounds is the same concept than reading tea leaves. You drink the coffee and read the grounds left on the
bottom of the cup. Reading coffee cream is different. while you can now use any colorful or decorated cup, with a handle,
and are no longer in need of a saucer, I prefer to use two specific tools – a special cup, I dedicate only for the purpose
of reading coffee cream, and  a teaspoon that is only used for the purpose of placing the “Wolke”, the cream cloud into the  center of the cup.
The process is rather simple. Gently place the heavy cream into the center of the cup that is filled with black coffee and DO NOT STIR! Allow the cloud take shape in front of your eyes, and notices where it travels, does it travel closer to the handle (representing you and now), or does it travel farther away from the handle (representing others, and another time). If the cloud travels in a clockwise direction, your reading concerns your future, counter-clockwise it represents the past.

The symbols are the same as for tea leaf reading, and should be read as such. For those of you who are vegan or can not
use dairy in their diet, you can substitute full-fat coconut cream for the heavy cream. (this is not the time to think
about your diet).

Now it is time for our symbols.

Letter U:

An Ugly Face: Unpleasant news

Umbrella: Depends on if it is open or closed: An open umbrella speaks literally about bad weather while a close umbrella speaks about a situation – this situation is not pleasant, but can be avoided if you pay attention beginning right now.

Unicorn: You might find yourself in the middle of unwanted drama

Urn: Check your health – unless there is a symbol indicating another person, then check their health

Interesting, isn’t it?

To brew the coffee for coffee cream readings, I prefer to use the over the cup cone dripping method. It is individual
and gives me time to clear my mind of distractions before reading the cream.

My favorite cone is the Oishii Pour Over Coffee Dripper. I love the fact that it does not allow any grounds to come through, despite the fact that it does not need an extra paper filter. So it is good for the reduction of garbage and makes a smooth cup of coffee. It is easy to clean – just rinse and wipe – and is small enough to store out of the way. Very stable, it sits comfortably upon a regular size mug as well as a wide mouthed, smaller cup. Great for the fresh cup of coffee in the morning, or to take with you in an office, that does not have a coffee machine (there is supposed be to such a thing, I have heard – the horror).

(Disclaimer: I received the above-mentioned Oishii Pour Over Coffee Dripper for free in return for an unbiased, and honest review)

T Is For Tea Books And Tea Leaf Reading Symbols

A To Z BloggingChallenge-A Is For...Tea Leaf ReadingSymbols (22)

Hi there, thanks for stopping by.

Now that we talked about tea and tea leaf reading for almost an entire month, I want to share with you some books on the subject you might find interesting. I have separated them by books specifically about Tasseomancy, and those about tea in a more general form. Enjoy

Tea Leaf Reading Books (Tasseomancy)

Tea Leaf Reading: A Divination Guide for the Bottom of Your Cup by Dennis Fairchild – a short and sweet guide, packed with information

Tea Leaf Reading For Beginners: Your Fortune in a Tea Cup by Caroline Dow – a great book for beginners on the subject.

Tea-Cup Reading and Fortune-Telling by Tea Leaves, by a Highland Seer – the classic of all Tea Leaf Reading Books

Books About Tea:

The Tea Enthusiast’s Handbook: A Guide to the World’s Best Teas by Mary Lou and Robert J. Heiss – a guide to traditional, and not so traditional teas from around the world, very thorough

Today’s tea leaf reading letter is T! What a great way to end the week (remember there will be no A to Z Challenge post on Sunday).

Letter T:

Table:  this symbol speaks of a consolation you are giving or have been given. Take a close look at the signs around it, to get more details about that consultation

Tea Cup with Saucer: A pleasant conversation is about to occur, trust your intuition as you are about to hear a very positive “fortune”, that works out in your favor.

Tennis Net: Enjoyable connection via activities

Telephone: Pay attention to your forgetfulness, it can get you into trouble

Toads: Symbols of deceit. Someone is trying to hide information from you. This is a sign of an intent of harm against you (not physical but in the area of reputation)

Tongue: You have said some hurtful words in the past, and you should heed to make them right, and ask for forgiveness.

Torch: a positive and hopeful symbol that speaks of bringing light upon a subject that has bothered you before. Unexpected fortune and fame can also be on its way. Things are about to change

Tunnel:  you are about to make a decision that is not wise

Have a wonderful weekend! See you Monday!

Tea Leaf Reading Symbol Dictionary: R Is For Ritual

A To Z BloggingChallenge-A Is For...Tea Leaf ReadingSymbols (20)

Hi and welcome back to another day of Tea Leaf Reading Symbols. The April Blogging Challenge has been a lot of fun, and we are already at the letter R!

Today, I also wanted to share a video of a traditional Japanese tea ritual with you. I find tea rituals fascinating in both of its complexity and simplicity. Check it out:

Now to today’s Tea Leaf Reading Symbols:

Letter R:

Rabbit: A child might be getting sick. More than one rabbit stands that you should be content with what you have. A dead rabbit indicates financial trouble, or that you are bored with the current job you have, and feel unfulfilled.

Ram: There is a person in your life, you should avoid as they bring nothing but unpleasantness.

Rake: Be persistent and you will succeed. You are wise in your investments of time and money.

Reptile: Not a positive symbol There is trouble ahead, possibilities include illness, general despair, and misfortune.

River: Trouble and complicated circumstances ahead.

Rose: a good symbol – speaks of love and good fortune

I hope you will join me again tomorrow for the next part of the Tea Leaf Reading Symbol dictionary!

Blessings!
