Spasmatomancy

Spasmatomancy is a form of divination by observing the spasmodic or involuntary movement, as of muscles, features, or limbs a person's body. This method was commonly used to predict the disease of a person.

Etymology

Derived from the Greek spasmos ('spasm') and manteia ('prophecy')

Methods

Spasmatomancy utilizes convulsive twitching of the limbs. For example, if the left eyebrow throbs or twitches this can mean an enemy will soon be encountered. If the right twitches, then it will be a friend. If a buzzing is heard in the left ear, slander or unpleasant words will come your way. If the right ear, good wishes. If the left palm itches then money will be paid out. If the right itches money will be coming in.
