Divination system connected to Vajrasattva or Simhamukha?

Is anyone aware of a Tibetan divination practice connected with either Vajrasattva or Simhamukha?

The only Tibetan divination system I know of is the "mo". You use a mala to do it. I don't think there is a specific deity attached to it.
Unless I am quoting scripture or a recognized authority my posts are my opinions only and not "Dharma". I offer my posts for entertainment purposes only. I hope you find them either interesting or enjoyable--but don't take anything I say to heart without running it by your own teacher first!

With mo there are also connected deities, such as manjushri and Palden Lhamo. Then there is the mirror divination of Dorje Yudronma.

What I have seen, there are mos associates with the deities that you mentioned, as well as Hayagriva, Guru Padmasambhava and Tara, but I have not seen a mo specifically associated with either Simhamukha of Vajrasattva. It is possible though, maybe you should ask some lama who is an expert in this field. Why do you need a mo connected specifically to Vajrasattva or Simhamukha?
