Addicted To Fortune Tellers

Post by koan »

One of the reasons I hesitate to read tarot cards for friends is the number of times they become addicted to it. I had one friend that wouldn't leave her house unless she called me first about what would happen if she went out.

Seriously.

Why do some people find comfort in having someone to predict their days for them?

As to my own use for tarot, I use them to study situations... not to make decisions for me.

I think it probably has something to do with wanting to have the 'heads up' on if that lady that lives in the apartment opposite has smelt their pot :D

Koan, how long have you been reading cards!
The most important things in life are:

laughter, love, and a healthy appreciation for the dark side!

I can understand getting addicted to knowing what is going to happen, kind of like gambling. You depend on it as a answer to your questions and concerns.

I would like to know about my future, but I'm not addicted!!:-6



I bought a lottery ticket too....



Am I contradicting or what????:thinking::wah:

You will find sex and love not this week but I find someone on the horizon in your future . If this person acts on their own beliefs you could find sex and love this week.

You are coming up to times of emotional turmoil but also emotional and financial release from your old habits and ways.

the future looks bright for you albeit with a few ups and downs along the way.



Oh hang on .................sorry .................did you want to know the date of your death?

Well I can be more accurate with this future telling if you go play in the traffic.

I can predict more accurately if you can tell me whether or not your suicidal.

:wah::wah::wah:

If you were to tell someone accurately their future I can garrentee they woudn't want to know it.


Okay, is he HOT????:wah::wah:

I've never been to a fortune teller. I think when people go on about how accurate one is, it is because of the power of suggestion. I also think when they say something general like "you will be in accident within 3 months" and you fall off a ladder, it makes you think "oh there is my accident".

On the other hand, my grandmother went one time. The lady offered to tell her more. She said she was out of money. The fortune teller told her she had more in her right shoe which she did. My mom was told she'd marry and move across water. She was thinking another country when it was a river. :wah:
