What is meant by divination? It is the ability to access any information not directly available to the five senses using tools such as the Tarot, Crystal ball, runes and so on to take a look into the life of the querent.

Using Tarot cards as a means of divination
The Tarot contains Universal symbols and archetype found elsewhere and has also been connected to the Kabbalah:
10 = Sephirot (ace through 10 in the Minor Arcana)
22 = paths (22 Major Arcana cards)
4 = elements (four suits)
Gypsies and the Egyptians used the Tarot primarily for divination, and many modern day Gypsies continue to use their own unique decks for such purposes.
Divination is practically in every culture. The Greeks, Egyptians, Sumerians, Romans, and Chinese everyone had some form of it.
Using Tarot cards as a means of divination:
Typically a reader will keep their cards in a wooden box or a silk bag to keep them safe and in good condition. Probably the most popular layout for the Tarot spread is the “Celtic cross”
What is the “Celtic cross”
Probably the first published reference to the Celtic cross was in a book written by Arthur Edward Waite in 1910 called “The Pictorial Key to the Tarot”
There are various versions of the Celtic cross, yet each follow the pattern shown to the right, whether or not they also include additional cards.
Position One: The present/what is happening
Position Two: The challenge/problems querent is facing
Position Three: Root cause
Position Four: Recent Past
Position Five: Goal/aspiration
Position Six: Near Future
Position Seven: Advice/what is happening in querents life
Position Eight: External Influence/people
Position Nine: Hope and Fear
Position Ten: Outcome/if/how the issue will be resolved. The outcome is based on the querent, continuing their current course of action. Of course, if the outcome card is not a desirable outcome, it is within the free will of the querent to make the necessary changes to their situation.
There are various versions of the Celtic cross with different positions for cards 3, 4 and 5
In Waite’s description of this spread the placement of the Past and Future cards will depend upon which direction that the figure depicted on the Significator card faces.
For example: The Past card will be on the left if the Significator faces right. However if the reader is not using a significator, then the direction that the figure on the first card (position 1) is facing will serve this purpose. Also, as Waite notes, “If the Significator cannot be said to
face either way, the Diviner must decide before beginning the operation which side he will take it as facing.”
Divination will not tell you exactly what will happen, we all have our own free will and we are able to express this. We as individuals can choose to alter our life path at any time; we can choose to do things differently or not at all.
