Divination is a term used for different methods employed to gain answers to questions, and at times, foresee the future through contact with the spirit world.
The following is a list various types of divination used by psychics, seers and the like. The various methods of divining answers are open to interpretation by the clairvoyant or fortune teller, so how information is gained usually varies between the diviner and his or her preferences.
Aeromancy: Divination by the air and sky. The shapes of clouds, wind and other aerial formations are studied as signs of future events.
Astragalomancy: Using bones, dice, stones or small pieces of wood bearing symbols to divine answers through interpreting how the objects lie on the ground; or what symbols are facing upwards.
Bibliomancy: Using a book to divine answers. A book such as the Bible is opened at random, while the diviner points to it while keeping his/her eyes closed. The phrase/paragraph that was selected is then interpreted as a significant message.
Cartomancy: Cards used for divination. Tarot cards are the most commonly used.
