There are many reasons people may turn to fortune-telling at some point in their lives. It often is because of love; or that they are stuck in a rut; face a challenging decision; and/or are anxious about the future for one reason or another. Sometimes life seems (or is) too hard and people look for something to hold on to. Etc., etc.
My first real experience of fortune-telling was going to a friend’s sister for a “Turkish coffee cup reading” in my mid-twenties. She had discovered not long before that she had a psychic ability and was doing practice sessions in exchange of donations. I was hoping she would tell me about when I would finally be happy in love, as I had not been having luck in that area for some time. I greatly enjoyed the whole experience and went to her a few more times after that. The details she gave about my husband and I meeting many years later were spot on. Even though, in retrospect, “the timing” she gave was way off, it kind of was not at the end.
I got into the whole occult thing about six years ago, with an astrology course. I then discovered Tarot and I haven’t put down the cards since, learning all the systems of reading with all kinds of cards, including normal playing cards, and acquiring a small occult library along the way. I greatly enjoy the whole process of card reading, like the first cup of coffee in the morning. Sometimes I feel like saying prayers, lighting candles and incense. But mostly I just choose the deck, do a long shuffle, layout the cards and interpret what I see.
I do all sorts of readings: the options people face, where their lives are heading, monthly forecasts, etc. Love questions, practical questions, spiritual questions, etc.
I find short term future (weeks to a couple of months) predictions are most accurate.
