Okay, so by sky images/people I mean this:
You stare at your shadow in the morning while reciting mantra for one mala, then look into the sky and see the outline of your shadow in lights and then depending on that outline divine various things.
If you know of this being done, what's it called?
Just curious, Thanks!
