This is the path of the Divinerthe path from the venus to mercury. It is the path of the fortune teller, the crystal ball reader, the tarotist. The Elven Diviner is an elf who contacts the realm of the Spirit, the Divine, through the use and Mastery of Oracles such as the Tarot, I Ching, Runes, etc.
The techniques for using and reading the oracles can be learned and certainly every diviner can improve and refine their ability; however, those who are drawn to practicing the Divinatory Arts have often been doing so for lifetimes and pick the skills up very easily. They often are attracted to the use of the oracles as children and begin playing with 'fortune telling' at a very early age. The Elfish Diviner learns very soon not to add their own opinions and biases in their readings. The very best diviners do their utmost to tell exactly what the Spirits wish to communicate and make no effort to influence the reading one way of the other. They seek and offer the truth as best they are able.
In the earliest times the Elfin shared a group mind and were in psychic communication with the all of nature and the spirit world. But, as we began to gather matter about us and especially as we began to develop individuated mental faculties, we encountered the need for symbolic representation of the languages of nature and spirit. The oracles are a result of this need. We have now passed the halfway point of our lower mental development and will, as time goes on, proceed toward the higher development of the mind in which we will have both individual minds and increasing ability to communicate psychically. We will also have an intuitive and instinctive knowledge of our connection to the Divine. Most likely as this transition continues the Divinatory tools will become beautiful artifacts of an ancient but no longer necessary art. In the meantime, the Elven Diviner will continue to be a respected and much sought after member of the Eldar Culture.

This is the trick... you must trust yours'elf enough to say whatever comes to your mind, to let your intuition have free reign without any effort to make it happen and also be free enough not to attempt to interpret the outcome according to your own disposition, opinions and desires. Can you do that?
Create your own tarot deck, runes or other oracle.

You are a clear channel for the divine and an expert at interpeting the signs. Do they now tell you to...
a portal between the divine and mundance worlds?
The path to Mars which is the path of the Ritualist
and guide others in the use of oracles?
The path to the Sun which is the path of the Guru
the truth from those who are not ready for it?
The path to Venus which is the path of the Illusionist
others to follow the signs and use them to transform their lives?
The path to Pluto which is the path of the Alchemist
to understand the whys and wherefores of people's inner nature?
The path to the Moon which is the path of the Shaman
others with your foresight and perception?
And the path back to the earth which is the path of Magician-ess
