About a month and a half ago, I was asked by a reader of this blog ‘in connection with dice divination, what is the meaning of the numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 etc.?’ This question made me realize that, in the course of the two lessons I’ve done on dice divination, I failed to be sufficiently clear about the meanings of all the various possible dice-rolls. And if I confused one reader, chances are I confused more than one.

So, to answer that reader’s question, and in case I may have confused other readers as well, I decided to run a correction in the form of a column which consists solely of the meanings of the dice rolls in dice divination, and to present a clear master-list of meanings for the various-numbered throws in dice divination. For those of you who are perfectly clear on dice-roll meanings, and for whom this is a tiresome repeat, I assure you I am working on another divination lesson entry, having nothing to do with dice divination, which I hope to post soon, but in the meantime, I’m putting this out there for clarity’s sake.

These meanings will apply universally, whether you’re doing a two-dice throw, a three-dice throw, a four-dice throw (not that I’ve ever heard of that, but hey, innovate), or a five-dice throw. There are such things as single-die throws, but those have an altogether separate set of meanings and rules of operation. I am including the numerological significance of some of the numbers, in case you want to take those meanings into consideration in your interpretations.
