What is the place of divination and oracles in Dodekatheism?

Divination and oracles had an important place in traditional Greek spirituality, however, the ancient Greeks understood that divination was not altogether reliable. It was plagued with the same problems then as it is today; fabrications, hoaxes, unscrupulousness and inaccuracy.

Ultimately, who has that self-ordained right to claim special powers and authority over the God and to pass on messages as if the God had spoken?  Dodekatheism emphasises that the Gods speak to us in many ways, and empowers us to worship directly and in meaningful ways. Those practicing divination should be aware of the potential consequences, and be encouraged to explore other means of understanding the will of the Gods.
