As nouns the difference between magus and diviner
is that magus
is magician while diviner
is one who foretells the future.
(common usage) magician, and derogatorily sorcerer, trickster, conjurer, charlatan
(special usage) a Zoroastrian priest
: Note : the two meanings overlap in classical usage— both derive from the Greco-Roman identification of "Zoroaster" as the "inventor" of astrology and magic. The first meaning ('magician') derives from the sense of "practitioner of the Zoroaster's craft", and the second meaning ('priest') from the sense of "practitioner of Zoroaster's religion".
