As a tech witch, I’m constantly looking for ways to integrate technology and magic. One early way I did this was to create a Discord bot to do tarot card pulls for me when I was on the go. This original idea expanded over time as I learned other forms of divination, expanding the range of items the bot could handle. Now, this code is available for others to see.
The Divination Discord Bot works by use of random number generation seeded to the timestamp of your reading request. This means that when you submit your message is a key determiner in what cards are pulled.
All card decks and cartomancy spreads are stored within JSON files in the bot’s code. New decks can be added with or without image files. You can also pull cards without a specific spread. Just tell the bot the number of cards you wish to pull and it will do the rest!
This bot also has a currently in development Rune Casting feature, using emojis to display the results in a compact setup. For now it is recommended only for those who have existing knowledge of rune casting.
