Divination is the art of using metaphysical skills and tools to gain knowledge of the unknown. It is classified as a practice of seeking knowledge of the future or unknown potential by supernatural means. Divination is a phenomenon that focuses on different methods and techniques that cultures use to predict the future, connect to the spiritual world, and find paths to abundance. 

While Divination is mostly spiritual, there are also many physical elements that are associated with the practice. This is usually in the form of ritual items (like bones, shells, feathers, candles, moon water), herbs/tea leaves, cards, stones, and more. 

Commonly, practitioners are classified under specific titles associated with their chosen divination practice: Psychics, tarot card readers, cartomancers, palm readers, rune casters, astrologers practice divination as a living or hobby in different forms with a similar purpose. 

Beyond titles, there are over a hundred types of divination practices, but the most popular tend to be Tarot reading, psychic/medium reading, bibliomancy, chiromancy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, dowsing, numerology, psychometry, dream interpretation, pendulum/crystal divination, rune reading, and tasseomancy

While some will focus on one type, most practitioners will discover their gifts in other methods because of certain overlaps in their spiritual beliefs and methods.  

Often, divination types relate to astrology through Moon cycles and powerful planetary alignments. Additionally, numerology and intuition are important tools used in divination practices to find signs within the Universe.

While the definition speaks to knowing the future, many divination methods, like Tarot, focus on self-awareness, personal reflection, and advice/direction in a person’s life instead of fortune-telling.
