I only worship the Greek Pantheon, and have always used various forms of divination. Most of course have nothing to do with the historical practices of my religion.

The way I've wiggled my way around this is before I use any form of divination I ask one of the gods (or goddesses), usually Apollo, to speak to me through the medium I happen to be using, usually my Tarot cards.

Other forms of divination I've used are pendelum work and an odd practice I've started using my playing cards, which until recently I used as my main Tarot deck. This idea struck me one night and I've been smitten with it ever since. I shuffle my cards, more to get a feel for them than anything else, then I pull my thumb across the top of the deck strewing them across my bed. As soon as they've settled, I set to sorting through them finding the ones that just belong together or those Apollo pushes me to. Once I've organized the ones that call to me I go back and find the cards meanings, I usually get a feel for what the situation is before I ever find out the cards meanings and occasionally I ask a question before I throw them.

I know it's not a traditional kind of divination, but it works for me.
