We started with a little palmistry...
- I have 4 bracelets and a long life line, indicating that I will live to an old age (likely true; most of the women in my family do).
- I have a short but deep head line, indicating that I am intuitive and have a really good memory. She said that I'm good at my job (true) and at reading people (sometimes true), school came easy to me (true), that it's likely that I have a graduate education (true), and that I'm not likely to get Alzheimer's (probably false, runs in the family big time).
- There is a line connecting my head line and my heart line, indicating that I have a lot of really deep, intellectually fulfilling conversations with my husband (ha, not so much).
- I have four very distinct and deep children lines, which means that if we want four kids (GAH!!), we are definitely able to, but if we don't, we should be careful because we are very fertile (super true). She said that the other two lines could also indicate that I will have a close bond with two non-biological children (maybe one more niece or nephew to come, for a total of 4 grandkids?)
- I have a number of travel lines, indicating that I have a love for travel (true, even though I don't act on it much). I forget what she said exactly, but she made a comment about my job not necessarily being fulfilling enough for me given my curiosity for the world and need for intellectual stimulation (probably true).
|Anyone know how to erase two of those fuckers?|
The fortune teller then had me choose from several tarot decks, because she would get the best read from a deck that speaks to me artistically. I went with a cool circular deck.
Unfortunately, this is where my memory gets a little hazy. She was VERY talky and told me a ton of things, and I was in a post Cafe du Monde sugar coma.
This is what I remember:
- The second card in the deck was the devil (the one she is pointing to in the above pic). This indicates that I went through a major situation in the recent past that caused a lot of stress and anxiety (scarily accurate, possibly made me tear up). She admitted that she couldn't get a good read on what that situation was, and tried to fish to see if it might be work related (wrong). When I didn't give much away, she said that the good news was that the situation is over now (true), I am at peace with it (mostly true), and I won't have this problem again in the future (fingers crossed).
- The third card (the one with the naked lady with wings on the left side of the pic below) was about Adriana. She asked if one of my kids was very verbal for her age. I said yes, and she told me that Adriana was going to be extremely smart and stubborn and independent (agreed).
- I got a card with a lot of cups, indicating that I have a really strong support system. I absolutely thought of you guys, so thanks!!! :)
- I forget what the card was (the lion one, I think) or what exactly she said about it, but my marriage is strong (I think so) and the outlook is good (I hope so).
- She was happy to see that card in the bottom right, whatever it is and whatever it means.
- I got the death card (bottom left corner), which indicates change. She was fairly certain this is career related, and that some time in the next few years I am going to come to a really difficult decision about whether to stick with my current path or to branch out into something different. She didn't say what I would choose or if it would be the right decision.
All in all, it was much more accurate than I thought it would be. I REALLY tried to give nothing away and gave her as short an answer as possible whenever she was fishing, so she is pretty good at reading people and figuring out what we want to hear. It was a lot of fun, I would absolutely do it again (despite not believing in it). $20 well spent.
Do you believe in palmistry and tarot cards? If so, do you get it done or do you avoid it? Have you ever had a really specific, accurate prediction?
