Eggs have symbolism across many cultures. Often a symbol of fertility and rebirth, the egg has been honored across an array of traditions.
Eggs in divination.
Oomancy sometimes referred to by Ovomancy, is divination using eggs.
Often one will scry using an egg white and hot water. One will observe the shapes the egg white forms. There are other methods of this divinatory form as well.
Oomancy is associated with the evil eye. It was often divined to determine whether one had been given the eye or not with an egg. I have read of different methods of doing this.
