I am not very good at divination of any sort and have never felt that it was a requirement when it comes to doing a spell. Most of my rituals and spells are done in the kitchen while I'm cooking or cleaning. Divination has never played a part in that. That isn't to say that I am not interested in learning the tarot or other forms of divination, but currently my mind tends to connect more when I'm meditating or focusing on my spell intentions. I do see them as two separate things, but I know that isn't how everyone sees it. I think this is really about "to each their own". If divination before casting is something that makes you feel right about what you are doing, then I think that is a good thing. If divination clogs you up and makes you doubt yourself, then I say forego it and just do the spell without the divination. Either way, it's all about intentions and what each individual gains from their workings, in my opinion.
Witchcraft...is a spiritual path. You walk it for nourishment of the soul, to commune with the life force of the universe, and to thereby better know your own life.
