"In the second term, we shall progress to the crystal ball -- if we have finished with fire omens, that is. Unfortunately, classes will be disrupted in February by a nasty bout of flu."
-- Professor Trelawney (PA6)
Divination using fire.
The art of fire divination is also known as Pyromancy, from the Greek pyros, “fire,” and manteia, “divination." It was done in ancient times by burning plants, the bones of animals, salt, or straw and interpreting the results. source: Wikipedia
