How to use an Astrology Dice (Astrodice)

Astrology Dice is a little-known divination tool. Similar to other dice divination methods, but with a twist!

It consists of a set of 3 dice with 12 sides. Each die is based on one of the three principles of astrology. Each of these die encompasses different symbols and meanings to be interpreted once cast together:

  • Houses: Represents the area of life that will be affected or of concern;
  • Signs: Represents the emotions involved in this situation;
  • Planets: Represents the actions, circumstances, or influences that affect the overall situation at hand.

Sometimes, though, you may need to associate a die with a different role. So, be playful when considering the meanings of the dice.

Astrology Dice is an intuitive tool. Hence, listen to your inner guide and trust it to tell you what you need to know.

What to ask an Astrology Dice (Astrodice)?

It's essential to notice that the querent needs to ask open-ended questions, similar to how we consult the Tarot. 

Yes/No questions are not ideal for this divination method because the message is meant to be read as a story. If you'd like to ask Yes/No questions, we suggest our Ouija Coin, which you can find here at Apollo Tarot.

Therefore, think of the result of the astrology dice as "sentence formation."

If you are already well-versed in natal chart reading, this will be pretty easy for you. Otherwise, Astrology Dice can help beginner astrologers practice interpreting placements.

Examples of how to use an Astrology Dice (Astrodice):

Let's hypothesize that you're thinking about a family member's turbulent relationship with a spouse.

Astrology Dice Example 1: What should I know about my family member's relationship?

After you roll the Astrodice, you see Jupiter (Blue Die) in the 10th House (Purple Die) in Scorpio (Green Die). 

Since Jupiter symbolizes optimism, abundance, luck, spiritual growth, and sympathy, the first die seems like an excellent start to a difficult situation. 

The second die, the 10th House, represents personal wealth, glory, and improving your reputation.

The Astrology Dice is an excellent complement to Tarot readings.

The third die, Scorpio, displays power-grabbing, firm ideals, secret emotions, and transformative abilities.

You can interpret the three dice as an optimistic prediction of a possible future. It may mean that the troubled spouse is happy about mending their relationships. 

They're willing to change to improve their reputation and transform into an honorable person. 

Astrology Dice Example 2: What can I expect from my future spouse?

Suppose you are asking questions about people, such as a description of your future spouse. In that case, you should be interpreting the result as if it's a natal chart placement. Here is an example:

5th House (5), Leo, Neptune: The future spouse is popular or potentially famous. There's a possibility that they are known for their artistic pursuits or idealistic and dreamy personality. They may be a natural with children, but perhaps a bit child-like themselves. Potential negative traits they'd have would be immaturity or egotism.

Astrology Dice Example 3: What is in store for me in the next week?

You can also interpret the dice one by one if that's easier for you. Here is another example: 

  • 10H - Your work and public reputation will be in focus in the next week.
  • Aries - This is potentially a new job or career that will evoke a sense of drive, passion, or even chaos. If this is referring to a person, it may be your boss. Otherwise, you will be stepping into a more demanding role.
  • Jupiter - Blessings or expansion are involved. Considering how Aries showed up in this reading, you may be receiving a promotion as it represents newness.
