Unfogging the Future

Divination is an elective class taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry that is available to third years and up and can be dropped in a student's sixth year. Past known teachers for Divination have been Sybill Trelawney and Firenze the centaur. The subject revolves around forseeing the future in numerous different ways, such as tea dregs, crystal balls, and horoscope charts just to name a few.

Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts, originally intended to rid of the subject totally, but decided to give it a chance after seeing Trelawney, descendant of a very famous Seer. However, he thought she was a bit of a fraud. When Sybill had announced the prophecy of Lord Voldemort, Dumbledore decided to allow her to teach the subject.
