Does the Bible allow or forbid deducing God's will from celestial or weather events, such as meteorite, lightning etc? What does the text of the Bible say on this topic?

That is astrology, which definitely classifies as pagan, occultic, and like sorcery and numerology. Strictly forbidden in the OT and not really talked about in the NT.
However, casting lots to make a decision was apparently okay in the disciples minds when they replaced Judas with Matthias in Acts 1. But the disciples were continuously doing and thinking things that Christ had to correct until Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost.
Now there are always the personal ways of deducing God's will. Gideon prayed that God make the fleece wet and the ground dry one day and the opposite the next to be sure of God's will to attack the opposing army. Found in Judges 6 and 7. What we actually might make of that I really cannot say.
