Andrzejki fortune telling is mostly for unmarried young ladies. In the past, searching for a husband was a Polish girl's most important task, so some St. Andrew's Eve rituals predict which female in the household will get married next or help to describe the man they will marry.
Animals, shoes, and wax have been used in the past to foretell marriage. The wax method of divination is still popular: melted wax, cooled in a bowl of water, is held up to a light to produce a shadow. The shadow is interpreted and the diviner is supposed to learn information about her future through the shadow produced by the melted wax. In a similar way, the shadow of burning paper can also be used to predict something about the future.
