This is to announce the creation of the Free Ifa Readings group here on PaganSpace.
The Ifa oracle is the most advanced oracle on earth, and was created untold thousands of years ago in West Africa. It accesses an unprecedented 246 units of information. No one today understands how such an oracle could have been created by a preliterate people.
The various information units are called odu. The appropriate odu are determined by swinging out a divining chain, called an opele. Attached to the opele are eight disks or ovals, and the way they land determines the correct odu.
For most divinations I do here, I will use a layout of ten odu.
