Take a fish. What sort of fish it is, matters. It is as well to understand the nature of the fish.
Put the fish onto The Plate Of Divination. The fish will tell your fortune.
If you have chosen a fairy fish, it will not simply tell you of the future. It may help you create the future.
If you have used the wrong sort of fish, it may attempt to eat your head. It is best to be ready for this eventuality.
Do not, under any circumstances, use the head of a mermaid.
Even if you are a fish, it is not a good idea to use your own head. However much you worry about the future, your head is not the answer. Use anything except your own head.
But obviously, don’t use blood. You know what happens to magical items when you use blood.
Wash everything carefully afterwards.
We knew you thought you knew better. You were supposed to use a fish. Now look at you. This is what happens when you don’t read your occult texts properly.
