The Tablet of Venus
by: Sam Stevens
In the 17th century, divination devices called The Tablets of Fate were sold on the street by fortunetellers. These were square pieces of paper which had sixteen numbers written on them and the idea is that you would go home, close your eyes, spin the paper and point to a spot on the paper to get the answer to your question. The numbers corresponded to the vibrations of specific planets and their responsibilities. For instance, the Tablet of the Moon was used to ask questions about family, friends and relationships. The tablet of Jupiter was used to consult about business, justice and legal matters.
The Tablet of Venus, which was used to answer questions about love, is as below.

To make your own Tablet of Venus simply copy the numbers you see above on a square piece of paper in the pattern shown and make sure the numbers are even spaced into sixteen spaces. Close your eyes, spin the paper and then ask a question. Wherever your finger or the point of your pencil lands – there is your answer. If the number is at all sideways or upside down then you read the number’s reversed meaning. This is a bit of a parlour game but it is traditional fortune telling, fun and surprisingly accurate. By the way, no peeking before you spin the paper.
