Once you know the solution, it’s easier to figure out the next course of action. This post will give you several tips for your journey as a Divination Witch.

What Is a Divination Witch?
A Divination Witch uses different methods to seek solutions to problems. They do this through sessions of connecting with their higher self. Divination is a matter that you should approach with caution. You should always cleanse the area and use protection spells. This will stop unwanted entities from interfering with your sessions.
Types of Divination
There are several methods of Divination to go around. But, this post will be covering the main ones that witches tend to use in our day to day. Below are the five most common types of Divination:
Scrying can look different for every Divination Witch. Scrying methods include using a crystal ball, reading tea leaves or candles, and dream interpretation to name a few. Make sure to meditate before scrying to get rid of your preconceptions.
Pendulums are chains, ropes, or rods with weights hanging from the end. You can use them in divination practices to get answers like yes, no, and I don’t know. The pendulum swings in different directions, but these directions can vary depending on the pendulum. So when you start working with a new pendulum, ask for it to show you “yes”, “no”, and “I don’t know” so you can get to know it.
Tarot cards can give you insight into how an event will result for you. You need to connect with your tarot cards to get the best results. Try spending time on simple spreads to get used to your deck. A good starting point for Divination Witches could be three-card tarot spreads.
Astrology revolves around Planetary Transits, Retrogrades, and the 12 House System. A Divination Witch could seek guidance through Deity color-correspondences. Using this system, you can pick the best times to practice or pick times to avoid casting certain spells.
Runes are ancient Norse letters. People used runes before the invention of the Latin alphabet. Today, Divination Witches use them to communicate with Deities. Runes can help amplify your spell-casting and protection.
How to Perform a Psychic Reading as a Divination Witch
Performing a psychic reading as a Divination Witch could be a little different. There are several types of psychic readings for you to try out. Examples of some of these methods are: clairvoyance, precognition, astrology, and palmistry.
You need to begin your reading as a Divination Witch with a question in all cases. Your reading will then serve as a medium for answering said question. Divination Witches should always begin their readings with a clear mind. If you fail to cleanse your mind, you can put yourself in danger. Any adverse interruption could disrupt the Divination Witch’s psychic reading. A Divination Witch uses the information they gather in the reading to tell a story. This story is usually a response to the question.
10 Tips for Divination Witches
This section will share tips to help you through your Divination journey. Let’s get started.
Cleanse Your Body, Mind, and Area
Having pure intentions before starting a session is important for a Divination Witch. This is a delicate process. If you don't cleanse your aura, so many entities could bring your session down the wrong path. So try to shower, light some incense, and get your protection spells going before you practice.
Ground Yourself Before Starting a Session
Keeping oneself grounded is very important for Divination Witches. Both beginning Divination Witches and existing ones can need support sometimes. Having some black tea and meditating before a session could help you with that. When you drink black tea, it makes you more alert and grounded. This helps you get in touch with your higher self more quickly. Remember that your soul has roots. It’s only a matter of how and when you use them.
Have Help From Your Crystals
Crystals are a Divination Witch’s best friend. You can try and meditate with a clear quartz for an energy boost. Or, to tap into your inner clairvoyance, you can try working with amethyst, Amazonite, fluorite, and aqua aura quartz.
Don’t Be Afraid to Use Herbs
Witchcraft has been in touch with nature from the beginning, and it’s how we get by. So it shouldn’t come as a shock when we tell you that herbs have a significant place in Divination. Divination Witches can turn to herbs before, during, and after sessions. These are cinnamon, lemon, lettuce, orange peel, cherry, grapes, mint, pumpkin, and celery. Your intake of these herbs will help you feel more in touch with your divine self. Bake and cook with them and consume the goods before a session for better results.
Charge Your Tools
A good Divination Witch always charges and cleanses their tools. Remember that your tools aren’t simple objects. They are the mediums through which you receive guidance, and they, too, can get exhausted. You can charge your tools under the moonlight. Other options are keeping them around salt, or even burying them in a little pot to neutralize the energy.
Burnouts are never fun, whether you are a Divination Witch or not. Try limiting the number of tarot cards you pull and the length of sessions. Take naps and keep yourself rested.
Hydration plays a big part in your journey as a Divination Witch. Divination Witches use a large part of their energy to tap into the resources of the Universe. So getting dehydrated after sessions can be very common. Remember to listen to your body and drink plenty of water throughout the day.
When practicing for long hours, your body can get exhausted over time. Try to take little walks between sessions to keep your circulation up, keep your muscles relaxed, and flush your body with fresh oxygen.
Use Your Notes
Remember that Divination Witches can use notes while practicing. This is a good starting point for beginners who don’t feel confident yet or even expert witches who are trying to reach their ultimate clairvoyant potential.
Always keep your Book of Shadows with you to take notes during sessions. If you don’t have one, using a regular journal that you feel a connection to can also work. Being a Divination Witch means learning to interpret the signs you receive. Throughout your experience, there will be repeating patterns that you will come across. Yet, remembering every single one can be difficult. Through journaling, you can spot patterns by going over your notes.
Practice makes perfect
You now know the tools, safety measures, tips, and tricks that you need as a Divination Witch. Your next step should be practicing and connecting with your higher self. Remember that this is a process, and not every method might be for you. You will find your calling and grow as a Divination Witch in time. This is your journey. The important thing is that you learn from it and find peace, knowledge, wisdom, and joy within your path.
