What Adam said. While mathematics can conceivably serve to describe the physical systems of supposed divination techniques (catastrophe theory might even have some possible application there), for understanding "divination" itself, I think psychology would be a more profitable area of research.

I'd recommend familiarizing yourself with the concepts of the Forer Effect, confirmation bias, and subjective validation.
