Discernimento


Explanation:
O dicionário "Chambers" esclarece que scry é uma forma arcaica de descry.
O Michaelis diz a respeito de descry: avistar, espreitar de longe,, espiar,, descobri de longe, discernir, distinguir, ver claro.
Sendo assim, julgo que discernimento cabe no contexto indicado

cristalomante, adivinho


Explanation:
Scryer é o adivinho que faz previsões pela observação de cristais (como a bola de cristal, por ex.) Em português existe a palavra "cristalomante", mas eu, pessoalmente, preferiria traduzir por "adivinho" (não me parece que o contexto exija tanta precisão). Boa sorte.

Explanation:
A Scryer is a person who gazes at or into an object (usually a quartz crystal or even a black bowl with water in the bottom) to still the conscious mind and thereby allow communication with the spiritual mind. This is done to become aware of events prior to them happening. One of the most famous scryers was Nostradamus.
