Why do you use divination?

The emphasis is on you. What do YOU use divination for?

I am new to the pagan path and intensely curious to learn (indeed, I'm on my 3rd book since solstice) and I'll admit, divination has caught my eye (particularly pendulum and runework). I haven't had the chance yet to look into it too deeply, but I'm excited to get there!

The tricky thing is, I come from a rather secular athiest/agnostic "whatever happens, that's what happens" kind of background, and have a hard time imagining actually using or honing divination skills. So... Enlighten me if you will!

What do YOU use divination for? Why do YOU do it?

Inquiring minds want to know :)

Sometimes I will read my tarot cards to give me a sense of direction on something that's troubling me.

I don't use divination tools to discern the future & prefer remote viewing. I'm a total dunce at Tarot reading. Instead I've used crystal gazing to change consciousness & "view" past-life influences & to receive dream-like instructions & other lessons. It works as a substitute for trance-speaking mediumship when I'm alone.

I've used a pendulum to choose between 2 similar things like mundane cooking recipe substitutions, multi-vitamins & Medicare supplement plans; to tweak a spell format & determine if a spell is the right action; with a local map as a guide when I was house-hunting; to dowse for underground water pipes; to dislodge energy blockages in healing & to clear the energy of a room; & just for fun twirled a faceted sun catcher pendulum like a lasso to cast a circle.

I have runes and the witches runes, a little pendulum and Tarot. I am pretty good with my deck of cards. I use them like SnowCat for insight. Just to get a hint or an overview in the Situation. I use them for me and for others.
The other methods are still experimental. For divination the witches runes would be my second choice.

For choice making meditation and feeling the energy or dreams (but I don't provoke them. They will just come to me).

I use a single or double optical depth. It's the easiest way to see into other planes. That can be helpful to attain knowledge useful in this sphere, as well as, giving you "a look before you leap".
