Why people rely on fortune telling

I have found that there is one common characteristic of people who often consult fortune tellers. They repeatedly go to these places until they are told good words.

  1. Oh, yes, absolutely 😉 I once advertised a workshop for the Tarot as a spiritual tool, called ‘Tarot for Transformation’. The flyer clearly stated the workshop had nothing to do with divination. People still rang wanting a reading. and one lady insisted she be allowed to come along so i could tell her ‘some good things would happen’. All she wanted to do was have someone tell her that life would improve. Period. She kept ringing back until I was very rude. It was quite sad :/

  2. That is sad, Peregrin. The tarot is an excellent tool for self-exploration and understanding the changes one moves through at a subtle level. These poor, desperate souls are content to give their power away and leave their fate in the hands of other (sometimes disreputable) people. I would love to see tarot readings that involve the querent in the outcome, ie, help them to come to their own conclusions and tap into their own inner-knowing. A little like the “Gestalt” style of reading tarot, I guess.

  3. I remember the last time I tried to give someone else a tarot reading. The querent had already decided what the correct answer was, and just wanted me to confirm it! Needless to say, the cards were not willing to co-operate. 🙂
