Ceromancy is a form of divination where heated wax is used to tell fortunes.


Traditionally, the ritual uses a brass bowl. Water is added to the bowl and a candle is then lit. The melted wax is poured into the bowl and the resulting shapes are interpreted by the reader.[1] Some practitioners also use the shape of the wax as it drips down the candle to tell the future.[2]
