First, I corrected what I considered oversights on the creator’s part. I assigned the extra number 86 forecast to number 60, and created four forecasts for numbers 101, 104, 109, and 123. To the two empty squares in the circle, I added forecast numbers 125 and 126 and wrote forecasts for same.  

This oracle leans heavily in the direction of love, marriage, and money, like many fortuneteller tools of its time. So I tried to create forecasts which were in keeping with the spirit of this divination tool, but less romance-centered. Sometimes the spirits don’t have anything to say at the moment about our romantic futures, and we live in a day and age when marriage is very-much optional, not mandatory.

I kept the ‘Oracular Circle’ on the chart with it’s more fortunate/less fortunate designation. I removed the hand with its eye-heart illustration on the chart and moved it to the same page with the instructional poem regarding its use, in a nod to the creator’s original intent. I suppose if you wanted to identify a month in which your forecast would happen, you could write the months of the year in the sections of the four fingers, then blindly point or drop a coin onto it. In the very center of the chart, where numbers 66 and 83 touch, I added a large black dot, in case you want to attempt the original forecasting method prescribed by the author and stick a pin there. Finally, I shortened the name to the more accurate ‘Madame Aubrey’s Oraculum’ since palmistry isn’t a meaningful part of it in my version. 

 I’ve fixed what needed fixing and I think it still stands as a potentially useful divination tool for the interested user, though it deviates from the original design. This would make a good spin-and-point-blindly chart, a good coin-toss chart, or even a pendulum-dowsing chart if you wanted to try it. Since to use it in the way the designer originally intended calls for very specific timing and weather conditions, you’ll likely have to employ another method of consulting it anyway. Although I suppose you could pin the chart to a sheet of foam-board, place it on a spinning surface, set up an artificial source of light, then spin and see where the shadow of the pin falls when it stops spinning.
