Magical Uses of Divination

When most people think of divination, they think of its use to foretell the future. It can also be used for magic! When you are constructing a spell, you can use divination to find out the best method of making the spell. After the spell has been sent out, you can find out if it has worked. Explore these and other uses of divination in magic.
