Well Met All. I was skimming through the recent posts,etc and came across one that had to do with runes. While I agree if you are going to participate in a practice you should know what you are doing as well as be well informed on the various aspects of a practice. But how do you all feel about applying that to divination? I saw when discussing runes as divination compared to in a scholarly inquiry, that in both cases it was recommended to read the scholarly information (via books in this case) as well.

Myself, I feel no need to know the in depth historical or acedemic or scholarly(you get the point) information on most types of divination, excluding astrology, which I don't consider just divination anyhow as it's more complex than that. Sure, with Tarot I have a good understanding of the basic origin, the origin of different decks and the use of symbology in historical referece to the cards. But I am much more interested in the developing connection I have with the cards, what they mean to me, and how I see things shaping with them currently.

As most forms of divination I deal with are with various cards, i'm just using that as one example. I'm sure there are other forms where one would need those things but I don't feel it is a needed, or wanted, focus for me. I'm looking forward to some opinions on this. Perhaps there is some benefit i am missing from feeling this way,lol.
