Divination (from Latin divinare “to foresee, to foretell, to predict, to prophesy “, related to divinus, divine), or “to be inspired by a god”, is the attempt to gain insight into a question or situation by way of an occultic, standardized process or ritual. Used in various forms throughout history, diviners ascertain their interpretations of how a querent should proceed by reading signs, events, or omens, or through alleged contact with a supernatural agency.

There are dozens of Methods of Divination such as:
Ailuromancy (using cats’ movements to predict future events, especially the weather), Augury, Dowsing, Feng Shui, Kabbalah, Necromancy, Ouija, Palmistry, Phrenology, Scrying, Tasseography (tea leaves), and Wishbone.
