For this swap, you will use bibliomancy to do a brief, "fortune-teller" style divination for your partner about something to keep in mind for the coming weeks.** Try to keep it to one sentence or a very short passage. Write it verbatim in the message section of a postcard. Then, write 1 or 2 sentences with an interpretation, or just adding to the message in a way that flows. Space is limited, so work with what you can. You can always try again with the book if the first thing you get is not suitable for a postcard. You can also omit words or sentences with an ellipsis (ie, "You can . . . omit sentences with an ellipsis"). Add the swap name and username for easy rating, and off you go!
** The last time I did a bibliomancy swap, many people told me it was their first time. I have a couple books that I consistently use, and I meditate with them and feel connected to them the same as I do my tarot cards. If you're using a new book or it's your first time, that's fine! Just try to be in the same mindset as when you read cards. Think about the question (your partner's upcoming weeks) and either open the book to a random page, or lay it on its spine and let it fall open. I tend to then point to wherever I feel drawn to on the page, and read there. I will usually read the surrounding context, even if that means flipping back or forward a page to finish the paragraph(s). I then pick the most appropriate sentence to sum it up. But you can just read the page you're on and find what feels like the message, and go with that sentence.
Any postcard type is allowed as long as it is in good condition (storebought, Zazzle, nicely homemade, etc). There are some really nice ad cards and I personally don't mind as long as they look cool, but check with your partner if you want to use one. Remember that oversized cards will require a forever stamp. And while the postcard does not need to be swap/group based, it's always a nice idea to check your partner's profile if ya can! Send naked unless your partner requests otherwise in the comments.
