What kinds of divination do Druids use?
I am a student of becoming a druid and My two favorite methods of divination are crystal ball gazeing and tarot card reading but that seems more like witch craft…… do druids use those two forms also?

Well I would personally think that all divination would be ‘categorised’ under magic not a path such as witchcraft.. but here’s what google told me 🙂
There are 3 types of Druidic mantic work used by the Ovates:
Predictions based on signs and omens. Use of the 4 elements. Tea leaves, watching clouds, bird flight, animal behavior, gazing into fire or pools of water etc.
Using no outer methods, channeling higher wisdom in relation to
Methods to find hidden things, whether intangible or tangible. More sophisticated form of Augury. Ogham, Druid sticks, card sets, etc.

I believe that Druids use the same kinds of divination that most witches do. I know a Druid who uses the Celtic Tree Oracle and loves it. I have also seen her using animal behavior divination, but I do that too.

the druids were the most powerful wizards and sorcerers ever, and it is from them that i am both descended and learned the craft of magic. the divination tools used by the less powerful were rarely used by true druids, who preferred more advanced means of prophecy. among these are using magic to induce an image of the future in the mind, burning of sacred bones to produce symbols that could be interpereted in the flame, and the use of very powerful symbolic seals that have mostly been lost in time these days to show the very distant future. hope this helps you,
Can I get my Tarot deck taken away at school?
I’m getting my first Tarot deck in a few days and I’m really excited to do readings on my friends. I know the main Tarot cards aren’t things you mess with because of their properties but I’m going to be extremely careful with them and do the readings in.. secret you could say. Now I’m just wondering if I could get them taken away by a superior? Has anyone gotten their deck taken away? If it helps, I live in Arizona(for laws, maybe?).

yes sin isn’t allowed in schools or it shouldn’t be anyway.

Since we’re talking about old people, then you should probably be super careful dude.

If it is a cause of distraction yes. it is not part of a religious ceremony so you can’t plead that one.
