Look in the horoscope section of your newspaper and save yourself a lot of money.

I do online astrology.

You will soon experience a dark period followed quickly by a lightening, you will be able to see things clearly. Make the most of this period because it wont last, don't be disheartened the light will return.

I can also reveal that you will soon be separated from your money

I also do free online astrology. I say to my clients (all of them):
1. I can feel that you are worried about something. Is that right?
2. Does the name John (or cultural equivalent) mean anything to you?
3. I can see health problems in someone close to you.
4. You have recently travelled.
5. Everything will be better after you have gone through a period of some uncertainty.
Pretty amazing, eh?

Search for a Polish fortune teller with naturally red hair. I've heard they possess greater psychic abilities:)

Do some Polish people visit fortune tellers?



The Balkans, Slovakia, Hungary and Russia/Belarus/Ukraine might have lots of cultural differences but one thing is certain -- in all of them many people (usually women) consult fortune tellers.

As you can see most of those were under Ottoman rule or/and have many Roma people. Both of these brought superstitions and beliefs in such things. Anyway, what about Poland? Being more religious do you shun such occult practices? I think they're very detrimential and the most a country is in such things, the poorer it seems to be - Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Turkey, most Arab countries where "wise women" are not persecuted. I had a severed goat foot threwn in my terrace by a neighbour lol! It's thungs like these why I avoid dating certain ethnic groups, including my own.

In Hungary and Slovakia such practices are rarer and surprise they are developing better (less bad karma).

Oh I forgot Latin America and Subsaharan Africa where they practise santeria or voodoo and most are failed states. Meanwhile countries where it's less common like Finland are wealthier. Too bad some minorities have brought black magic to Western Europe

DO SOME POLISH PEOPLE VISIT FORTUNE TELLERS?

Yes, there are plenty. Including one very famous clairvoyant who's on TV sometimes.

There's also SMS fortune telling, basically a scam.

In Poland there are some traditional forms of folk divination practised in the Autumn, around All Soul's Day and St. Andrew's Day.

Subsaharan Africa where they practise santeria or voodoo

More usually other forms of traditional practice.

Every fortune teller is a scammer, its total BS, but its your own fault if you get taken by them.

I once heard a cassette recording of a colleague's visit to a clairvoyant in the UK (they used to sell you a tape of the visit). She was basically cold-reading the whole time. Her voice was going up at the end of every sentence (a bit like some Americans talk) making each statement very subtly a question, so she could gauge the customer's reaction.

True but they do rely on the more vulnerable. I can see by my Mom how age and poor health can change a person. In certain situations she's naive like a baby. Not to mention not technically savvy so she wouldn't know how to deactivate things etc.

There was this gypsy fortune teller in Chicago that was arrested for taking advantage of this old lady. They reported, she gave them over $90K her entire life savings.

I would never seek out any false medium, its has Satanic origins, stay away.

Interesting enough, every summer. I do hear of reports of gypsies in the area . They will come to your house, for example: Offer to seal coat your driveway for $75. As youre talking to them, another gypsy will sneak into your house and steal your belongings.

Do you still have these gypsies in the EU?

Gypsies, sold this guy a new roof install for $500! All they did was paint it silver and stole his lawnmower out of his garage. lol

A real job will roof cost between $5 to 10K

In the UK, a tiny minority of travellers are like this. In Poland, you don't tend to get many people calling at your door.

The real ones don't advertise their services.

I dob't think describing how my future boss looks and getting the names and looks of my then-future was cold reading. She was the real deal that one. If priests did their job ppl wouldn't need to visit them.

99% of it is that, plus a few other techniques and lucky guesswork. The other 1% don't generally advertise or accept money for it.

I say to my clients (all of them):

Reminds me a cartoon by Andrzej Mleczko - a fortune teller looks into the ball and tells the client: you are around 40 with receding blond hair.

Do some Polish people visit fortune tellers?

My mum went to one many years ago. After a long time of separation, she was desperate to know if she would see me again. The teller told her she wouldn`t. Then a few weeks later I arrive and reunite. We met the fortune teller in the streets of Greenpoint later on and she was really flabbergasted seeing me.

My advice: don`t use fortune tellers in NYC. They are swindlers.

I once knew a lady who told meme the fortune teller she went to see was about 90% accurate in predicting her future life.

More likely Warsaw IINM most of the more.... reputable psychics work by referral and not be advertising. I remember an article back in the early 1990s about several psychics and their clientele.

I do wish some of them had warned me about this virus so we could have got some shopping done and canceled some plane tickets

Did you go to see any or did you just expect them to knock at your door on their own initiative?

I went to one in New York once when I lived there - a Chinese woman called Ask Donna. Must be 25 years ago but she didn't mention any Wuhan virus
Ziemowit 13 | 4,282
22 Jun 2020 #23
I would have never expected you to go to one, by the way. Besides, 25 years is too long a period for a fortune-teller to tell a world-wide predictions. It is more likely they specialize in the life of a particular person (which possibly could include dying from a virus, but I doubt any fortune-teller would go that far as telling his customer the cause of his death).

Contrary to Ask Donna, many scietists predicted that there will be an outbreak of a virus epidemia sooner or later (due to various factors facilitaling such event).

This is life. People can do the strangest things when they get desperate. Be more tolerant. :)

I was working on a file that nobody had opened for a few years and the Ask Donna flyer fell out of it which was a bit freaky so I thought I would visit and see what it was like - was up in Spanish Harlem, before it was gentrified. She told me I would soon become a father, which was true but would work for most straight 20s males. Can't remember much else really except I win a few bucks at Papaya King afterwards which she hadn't predicted. .

I actually had a premolition that came true. I was crying (I was a teen by that time) because I felt my grandma would leave me. She was fine though back then or so we thought, there were no signs yet (June 2002). She started acting weird in July/August, had a stroke in August and sadly passed away in September 2002 (right on the 1st anniversary of 9/11). I've blamed myself for not pushing her seek medical help asap before she would act "mad" and refuse. By late August she was bed-struck. So sometimes gut feelings are not fake. Maybe it was a premolition or maybe I felt the first of a series of strokes she had. I really wish for this gift to go away, it's a curse plus I never have a gut feeling for myself - been living or working in places that are bad fits for me.

premolition

'Premonitions' and intuition are very close and often confused with each other. The difference is that intuition is proven to exist, whereas 'premonitions' aren't; though they seem to happen and not all reported 'premonitions' are that easy to explain away.

I really wish for this gift to go away,

Many people say the same.
