Austromancy is divination by studing the winds and cloud shapes. This is a category of aeromancy
Anemoscopy is divination by studying the winds. This ancient practice involves studying the speed, direction, and sound of the wind.
Anemoscopy can also include observing certain objects (such as dust or smoke) blowing in the wind, especially the shape of dust clouds blowing in the wind. A variation of anemoscopy involves asking a question and then tossing a handful of dirt, sand, or seeds into the air and observing the answer from the pattern of the resulting dust clouds.
Anemoscopy by the sound of the wind involves discerning answers and messages directly from the changing sounds of stronger winds or even the sounds of wind chimes moving in gentle winds.
A pendulum variation of anemoscopy involves holding a pendulum over a circle lined with runes or other symbols and observing how the wind blows the pendulum.
Nephomancy is divination by studying clouds. This involves observing and interpreting the color, shape and position of clouds in the sky.
The Celtic Druids made extensive use of nephomancy, which they called neladoracht.
A Medieval form of aeromancy involved summoning ghosts and specters to project images of future events onto clouds.
François de la Tour Blanche wrote that aeromancy was the art of fortune-telling when specters materialize in the air, possibly with the aid of demons, projecting images of the future onto clouds like a magic lantern.
Modern nephomancers observe the ever changing shapes of cloud formations as a form of meditation.
Chaomancy is a form of aeromancy that looks for visions in the sky, particularly in the shapes of clouds and cloud formations. The Hindu, Etruscans, and Babylonians made extensive use of chaomancy.
