Unread post by catherineyronwode » Sun Aug 16, 2020 9:21 pm

A copy of The Stranger in the Cup: How to Read Your Luck and Fate in the Tea Leaves, a 96-page illustrated book by Gregory White and catherine yronwode, is part of the ticket price to the 2020 Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival. You can also pre-order ow for shipment in mid-October.

The Stranger in the Cup by Gregory White and Catherine Yronwode

Use in Magic:
Tasseomancy or Tea Leaf Reading is probably as old as the invention of drinking cups. Some claim it originated in China, but it seems to have been native to Scotland, Ireland, and England before trade with China developed, and came to America with the earliest settlers. Learn how to select a cup, how to choose and brew your tea, and how to give a tasseomantic reading -- with a full dictionary of more than 800 tea leaf images, plus 36 sample cup interiors, showing what symbols the leaves may reveal. Plus, you will learn the history of tea, the history of tea-leaf reading, the history of the special tea cups marked for cartomancy, numerology, and astrology readings (and how to collect them), as well as the history of the woman-led Tea Room Movement that made tea-leaf reading the preferred fortune-telling method of the Female Suffrage Crusade. Profusely illustrated, beautifully laid out, and deeply descriptive, this is a book to treasure or to share with a special friend.

Spell Methods:
Lucky Mojo Books are filled with authentic and easy to follow instructions for practical spells of magic and fortune-telling. Enhance your success in spells of love, luck, happiness, and wealth by learning time-tested folkloric traditions of hoodoo, rootwork, psychic reading, spiritual sorcery, and herbalism.

Super excited about this one!Its exactly what I wanted,tea leaf reading is my favourite method of divination, I think it’s just the fact that you never know what will turn up in the cup,when I was reading The black folder section on tea leaves I was hoping you would do a whole book on the subject.I really like the title and beautiful cover art too.
I’m planning to preorder next month🙂

This is so exciting. I am excited to read this book and learn from you and Papa Gee! I am so glad he is presenting this at the 2020 Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival. He just made this awesome video and you guys can see Papa Gee tell you about what is in this new book and what he will be teaching at the festival.

Also, if you watch the video Papa Gee made, at --

https://virtual.hoodooheritagefestival. ... tival-2020

-- you can see the sample of his new brand, Fortune Telling Tea by aromaG's -- which, along with a copy of this very book, will be given to the first people who sign up for the Festival.

(NOTE: Virtual Hoodoo Heritage Festival tickets are time-sensitive -- if you order NOW, you get a $20.00 discount and a big box of workshop materials for the 15 classes with a retail value of about $150.00. If you order after the regular rates kick in, you pay full price and still get the $150.00 box of workshop materials. But if you wait too long, and the workshop boxes are all gone, all you will get is a ticket to the event. And after that ... you can tell your grand kids you missed it.)

As part of the roll-out for our new book, "The Stranger in the Cup," i am adding many new pages to The Mystic Tea Room, my free informational gallery on the subject of Tea Leaf Reading.

Today's brand new illustrated page at the Mystic Tea Room is this amusing look into pamphlets on fortune telling that were published by tea companies.

The Mystic Tea Room on Social Media: OPENING JANUARY 1, 2021!

On January 1st, 2021, the Mystic Tea Room will go LIVE on social media, with a wonderful giveaway sweepstakes. The page will be opened up for LIKERS and FOLLOWERS and we will award two great prizes at random to those who sign up on Day One! Look for details at the Facebook pages for Catherine Yronwode, The Lucky Mojo Curio Co., the Yronwode Institution for the Preservation and Popularization of Indigenous Ethnomagicology (YIPPIE), or Divination Fortune Telling Oracles.

Mystic Tea Room Social Media will enter the scene on JANUARY 1st 2021 -- which coincidentally falls on the first Lucky Mojo Facebook Fridays! giveaway of 2021 (!). To promote the new Mystic Tea Room page, Lucky Mojo will give away two boxed Jane Lyle Cup of Destiny tea cup sets plus accompanying copies of the new Stranger in the Cup book by Gregory Lee White and catherine yronwode.

Facebook Fridays giveaways have been running at Lucky Mojo's FB page since 2014, but unlike all other Facebook Fridays! contests, this one will be held at the Mystic Tea Room Facebook page, not the LMCCo page -- and we will announce in advance that the winners will only be selected from among those who LIKE the new MTR page. That should get us some great likes on Day One.

So mark your calendars, get your clicking fingers ready -- and on JANUARY 1st 2021, be prepared to go to The Mystic Tea Room on Facebook <-- Remember, it is not live yet! We will give you the link on January 1st, 2021.

When you get there, please "like" the new MTR page so that we can reach more people, and then leave your greeting comment to be entered in the contest. Thanks!

P.S. This is the Tudor Rose Tea Room in Santa Rosa, California. For more fabulous Tea Room images, go to http://mystictearoom.com/wiki/Vintage_T ... _Postcards
