Divination is attempting to discern the future from a variety of means. Only a few are covered here. You can check out Wikipedia or other resources for a more complete group if you want to create a special event based on Divination alone. There’s enough to do so.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Activities
Magic Eight Ball
Use a magic eight ball and ask questions of it. Most kids have one at home. Ask them to bring one if they have it.
Fortune Tellers / Cootie Catchers
There are numerous fortune tellers online. There are two attached to this supplement. Both are designed in the Harry Potter theme – one is blank and one has fortunes on it. NOTE: The easiest way to do a fortune teller is to write “Yes” and “No” as answers and have the questioner ask these types of questions.
Find a book or research palmistry online. Provide a drawing to your participants so they can look at their own life and heart lines. In addition, you may also observe the color of hands: • Pink — Healthy, optimistic, vital • Red — Anger, temper, acute, inﬂamed • Yellow — Bitter, malicious, jaundice • Brown — Depression, unforgiving, chronic • Black — Proud, haughty, moody, vengeful • White — Lifeless, apathetic, unmotivated • Blue — Cold, self-destructive, isolated When palm reading, the dominant hand gives detail about your present circumstances and the choices you have made. The non-dominant provides the background for the details of the active hand. To make it easier, you can put a light coat of paint or washable ink on your palm and make a print. Then, work on the print.
Make a crystal ball like a snowglobe with a baby food jar (or similar jar). How else might you make a crystal ball?
Tasseography is telling the future by looking at and “reading” tea leaves, coffee grounds or wine sediments. This means when the liquid is poured it cannot be drained. Usually, the tea is drunk and the last bit is swirled around before reading. It is traditional to read a cup from the present to the future by starting along the rim at the handle of the cup and following the symbols downward in a spiral manner, until the bottom is reached, which symbolizes the far future. Most readers see images only in the dark tea leaves against a white or neutral background; some will also read the reverse images formed by seeing the symbols that form in the white negative spaces, with a clump of dark leaves forming the background. Ask your participants to look and see what patterns they see in the cups. Use either white styrofoam cups or a collection of teacups from a thrift store that are light colored on the inside.
From tarot cards to a deck of playing cards, card readers may see very different fortunes from the same cards. Use these generalities for the “stages method.” Let your participants start with these interpretations and create their own answers. • Aces — The beginning of a situation. • Twos — Direction the matter will take. May be a ﬁrst meeting point. • Threes — The point at which details grow and the matter solidiﬁes. • Fours — Foundation has begun. Roots are put down in order to build. • Fives — The ﬁrst challenge or glitch in the situation. • Sixes — Issue changes and grows; If it stagnates, it will not continue • Sevens — Variety added, Scope of the idea/project may be expanded. • Eights — Evaluation period. People and ideas may be put to the test. • Nines — Moving forward. The issue is nearly completed. • Tens — Completion of the cycle, project, or issue. • Pages — Signify risks and messages. • Knights — Indicate movement and direction. Have one person ask a question and draw a card. Use your imagination to provide a fortune.
