This is why I think the omen drawing in ADF ritual is so important. It is the part of our rite where we hear directly from our Kindreds about their thoughts on what we are doing together in fellowship and as a community. They reply to us a group. When I do an omen pull alone, they reply to me as an individual, and can speak to any number of topics. In both instances divination is an intimate act of conversation in which I stop being rude. I become a partner with the powers of this world that we share.
I am curious to hear what you, dear reader, feel the purpose of divination to be.
