For me, I prefer Tarot, Pendulum, and Candle Wax.
1. Tarot: I have one tarot deck and one only called The Gothic Tarot by Joesph Vargo. It also comes with a compendium which is about a 300 page companion book which goes in depth with each of the 72 cards. It has rarely failed me.
2. Pendulum: I love my pendulum. I have not gone into the depths that I could go with it, but what I have done has me knowing that it truly works for me most of the time.
3. Candle Wax: I read in a book about candle magic and I've been hooked since. There is something called candle divination that is my true calling. I tend to make my own candles for it. You need to have wax that drips though. You ask it a yes or no question then light the candle- and wait. If it drips to the right the answer is yes, if it drips to the left the answer is no. If it does not drip, or drips in the front or back then the answer is unsure and you may need to ask again at a later time. There was NEVER been a time I have preformed this when it was wrong.
Example: When we applied for our last house I wanted it more than I had ever wanted anything. So after sending in our application for it, we created some candles for candle magic and divination. We colored the candles green and yellow (green for money and prosperity; yellow for new beginnings). We preformed our ritual and when it was time to light the candles we asked all the candles the same question- would we get the house.
We checked on the candles later and to our surprise every candle (and there were quite a few!) had the wax dripping to the right. I should also note we lite some candles I had not made as well. All had dripped to the right. The large candle we created and a wax stream that went a good 5 inches or so away from the actual candle it was so prominent. The next day we received the call that we got the house.
I also delve into animal divination, cloud divination, etc...
For a good many sources on the subject I'd recommend Scott Cunningham's book called "Divination For Beginners".
