Here in our place, there are a lot of fortune-tellers ranging from palm reader, tarot cards, and even just by looking at your "aura". They can be found in almost every where and even outside churches. Do you believe in what they say and would you let it affect your life or the way you decide especially on major issues? I have once tried it for fun and im personally not a believer of it but what the fortune teller told me were almost all true. However, i really dont take it too seriously especially if what she said was bad news.

No, I don't believe in them. If you read the astrology reports, you will say 'hey, that sounds like me.' But then read a different sign and you can relate to that one too.

yes, and i wonder about horoscopes or astrology reports, do they apply to all people who have the same astrological sign as yours? how would you know if it's yours or not, right?

Fortune reading includes Palm Reading, Tarot Card Reading, Casting a Spell, Numerology, Crystal Balls, Phychic Reading, Chirology. It is a scientific study. So what i feel fortune reading totally depends on the proficiency of fortune-teller in his field of expertise. It is absolutely a scientific calculation and their is no magic or trick in this. Like in physics, if you know the correct formulae, you would be able to solve the numerical, the same way a fortune teller needs to be very specific and expert in this study to get the accurate predictions.

no i won't believe in fortune teller even in my youth days because i raise in Christian family i study that believing in fortune teller is like believing in satan because he is author of all tricks and deceptions in these cruel world. you should be aware that if you start believing in fortune teller you will turn your faith in power of darkness and cult which satan was founded here on earth. you must get rid of this beliefs before they will control your life. you should have faith to the creator and plead your needs and he will responds you. believe to the author of our lives. and get rid of believing fortune tellers. did you know that now a days fortune teller are so popular from the smallest kid up to elderly people. did you know watching tv series of a cartoon series that practicing fortune teller, having tarrot cards, palm reading and looking ar you "aura" is engaging to deceptive way of satan...so be smart and believe in the only true GOd...

No but its seems that many people do believe them because they have nothing else to believe and also they paid for "professional" services so they assume that they hear a truth!

for me, i dont believe in fortune teller, because they are only telling what they think of you,but its not really happen.It depends on how you make effort to fullfill your ambition.I remember i did that before, and they told me that i cannot go to other country.But he dont know that i have already visa at that time.I believe in science than fortune teller.

Yes we also have a number of such perons.Majority are frauds.But some are genuine .they do tell correctly.I have not gone to any of these but my husband had went before our marriage.He didn't knew me also.He asked about his wife & the description which that fortune teller gave eaxactly matched with me with time of marriage predicted correctly.So i can't say that i don't belive it at all.Sometimes they do tell correctly.

Tarot readers and fortune tellers shouldn't give you bad news. They can advise you of things they see that are going to happen, and can warn you of things to come, but thats about it. I do believe in them, ive had readings when ive been unsure about something and have found strength in what ive been told. Whether its all true or not is another matter but if you get something from it, then does it really matter? A long time ago I was told that i would work with my hands in a healing capacity, and at the time I was a single parent living on benefits with no sense of much of a future ahead of me. About 5 years later I did a course and qualified as a Reflexologist and am now a complementary therapist, helping people and giving healing. My background was banking, so there was no reason whatsoever to think that i would one day become a therapist, so who knows, maybe there is some truth in it after all.

my friend once told me her opinion abut fortune tellers once and i found it to be very true. if the fortune teller gives you good news, you would readily believe it and be very disappointed if it didnt happen. if it was bad news you would not want to believe it, and if it really happens, you would start regretting not listening to the fortune teller. either way you would not be happy, so why go to fortune tellers in the first place! your destiny is in your own hands!

My father used to go to fortune-tellers and he believed, and I have been to them, but they cannot tell me anything that I do not already know.

no one exactly knows our future. no one could predict exactly what will happen to us in the next 24 hours. our future is solely dependent in the hands of our Creator. if ever there are events that have happened to us and were told to us earlier, for me such are coincidences. i really don't find time going to fortune-tellers, tarot card readers, plam readers and all sorts and ask them about my future wife, getting riches in the years to come, winning lotto numbers, etc. but i find them entertaining 'though.
