How we use Tykhe Dice
Think of a question you would like to answer. Avoid yes/no questions; be clear in your mind what you are asking the dice.
Roll the dice gently between your hands while thinking about your question. When you feel you are ready…
Hold your hand, or both if you prefer, above the centre of the Tykhe Dice board. It only needs to be a hand width above the board.
Release the dice from your hands, they will spread across the board.
Look at the symbols that are uppermost, these symbols will resonate with you and lead you to your answer. Consult the booklet supplied to understand and interpret the reading. Reading will become intuitive as you work with the dice; but even from the outset it is very straightforward.
This is a simple cast, there are many more levels you will see on the Tykhe Dice board. As you work with the set you will follow a path in reading and interpreting the many layers that the Tykhe Dice set reveals.
‘For us all, every day is full of problems, questions, large and small’
‘Know thyself’ – Socrates, Plato…
You want to know what your future holds right?
You probably think that isn’t possible.
But if I said:
- How are my choices affecting my life?
- How can my choices improve my life?
- How are my choices affecting others in my life?
You’d probably agree, because that makes sense.
‘Your future is largely in your hands.’ You will get the future
you build. To quote the Ancient Greek Philosophers,
Plato and Socrates: “Know thyself,” that is the secret.
Knowing who you are, your strengths, weaknesses,
hopes, belief and desires is the key to a good life and one
that suits you. Throughout history, thinkers and mystics,
philosophers, scientists, wise men and women have
looked at how to do that…to see inside the self.
And here is the result. We call it Tykhe Dice.

Tykhe and the astrological symbolism of the Tykhe board may be seen as astrology of spiritual influences, whilst we may enter into the realm of divination using the power of judgement and prediction, within Tykhe we endeavour to meaningfully interpret a given set of astrological symbols along with those of the Tykhe Dice to a unique human situation allowing the revelatory light of the whole system of stars and planets to describe another solution within reality using these symbols as a metaphoric mirror to carry out the reading and infer it back to actual reality therefore it is not only the psychic, but more the psyche of the reader for until the reader relays the symbols significance there can be no significance, for we are not looking at the time element of astrology as found within the ‘birth seed’ for within Tykhe time is infinitely flexible so it remains the work of the reader to bring both the psychic and emotion into the symbolic equation, this may be seem as ritual as the reader brings themselves to align with both the person and the symbolic material.
