Reading Systems, Oracles & Cold Reading

There are many reading systems and oracles in use today, such as Tarot, Palmistry, Cartomancy, Numerology, Astrology (Zodiac), Geomancy, and others. In performance these are often combined with cold reading and other techniques from the mentalists tool box.

Cold Reading means that your reading uses no previously obtained information about the client. You rely on your powers of observation and the ability to make deductions. Taking note on how a person dresses, their carriage, the way they respond to certain categories of questions and their body language can tell an expert a lot about a person’s lifestyle, point of view and education.

This contrasts with Hot Reading, which exploits prior, often secretly obtained, information (there is also Warm Reading, which makes use of verbal feedback obtained from the client during the reading).

Barry Ray
Dice Reading by Barry Ray

Why dice?

Barry wanted a reading system that could be performed in the hands, sitting down or just walking around, that didn't require a table or a spread. That could be done inside or outside, regardless of the weather conditions. Something that didn't get soiled, torn, blown away or that water would ruin. So cards were out. Runes and stones fit the bill, but to get different coloured ones and of the same size isn't easy. Barry needed a uniform size and nothing too esoteric. Dice fit this description and are easily available.

Long before tarot and runes, soothsayers used to cast bones,...
