Hello,

how can I say in English a noun, it is a foreseeing of future events? It is often without details, it is often about far future, and it can be interpreted in more ways. People usually create them with cards, magic glass sphere or by reading palm on hands.

According to Greek mythology, the people who were telling them in the past were: Pythia and Sibyl.

In latin it is "oraculum".
