Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Do you tip a fortune teller?

I was in New Orleans and had my palm read for kicks and giggles, and I paid the woman the amount she asked. When my friends and I walked away, one of them said it was “bad juju” not to have given her a tip. What do you all think?
Please keep in mind I’m not really worried that this woman is going to put a hex on me. I’m just wondering what the finer side of Y!A thinks about tipping fortune tellers. This is also for kicks and giggles.
Tracy, not to minimize your answer, but I think my friend meant “rude” when she said “bad juju.” She was JOKING about the lady putting a hex on me. I was certainly not worried about her cursing me.

Answer by Victorian Gentleman
Here’s a tip to give them.
“I advise you to go away you Ghastly Gypsy Charlatan”.
There, that should do it.
Glad to be of service VG.

Answer by Tracy W

Answer by Allison T
No need to tip.

Answer by DaChickenLady
I don’t think it is necessary to tip a fortune teller at the end of a session.

Answer by Jools
No, you don’t need to tip them. They’re basically getting your money for nothing anyway — why would you give them extra?

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Teens, Going to a fortune teller..?

Hello. I’m thinking about going to a fortune teller. But I’m not sure If I should or shouldn’t and If It’s actually real an If It’s a good or bad thing?. So teens what do you think?

Answer by Alyssa’s mommy
Supposedly there are some real psychics in the world. Police have enlisted the help of real psychics before to find bodies and solve murders… but there are also a lot of people who make a living as a psychic by preying on the foolishness of others. Anyone can read tarot cards, anyone can pry just enough info out of you to tell you what you want to hear.

I worked as a phone psychic awhile back. They trained us well, we had plenty of generic statements that could get women talking and waste their money. The pay was pretty good….

So yes, I am sensing sadness from you… there has recently been a loss in your life… did a loved one leave you recently? 99% chance a boyfriend or friend broke up with you, or a relative died, or something, and I can feed off that and tell you the future you want to hear.

I would just take everything she says with a grain of salt, you know what I mean?

Answer by Clemmy
I think it’s ok to go. I think that some are real because my mum went to one once (for fun) and was told about going on a long journey soon and meeting the perfect man there who you will be with the rest of your life. You will only be friends for a while at first and he will be surrounded by green. And there was some more I can’t remember.
A couple of months later my mum travelled to England from Australia (where she was living) and got a job where she met my dad. They were friends to start with and my dad was to shy to ask her out, but obviously eventually they did go out. And metaphorically he is surrounded by green because he is Irish. And they are still married after knowing each other over 25 years.

So yeah if you want to go for it, it shouldn’t be bad and even if it is very inaccurate it is an experiance.

Answer by leina.
I’ve never been to see one but i’m sure its what you ask? I don’t think they would tell you bad things unless you wanted to know, but i’m not 100% sure. I think it sounds okay but life is what you make it, and knowing your future just ruins the mystery if what they’re saying is true.

Answer by ßטгתזתg ғסּг טסּץ
Most of them just say what they think you would want to hear or what is likely to happen. It’s not real. I personally dislike fortune tellers lol.

Answer by Faith4jesus
Just because you put TEENS at the start of your question doesn’t mean adults won’t read it. Also I would think you are old enough to know that adults would know more about life than teens. If you don’t know the answer do you think other kids your age will? I doubt it.

I don’t believe in fortune tellers. God gave us free will which means you do what we want freely in life. No one can know the future because a simple choice can change it.

For example – Let’s say you got to one and they tell you that you will meet the man you will marry when you are 17. You will meet the guy on a family vacation and fall in love.

Real life – By the time you are 17 & your family is planning the vacation you are saving for a car. You get a great job offer to make a lot money and you have to decide between vacation or car. You decide to work to get your car. You remember how you were told you would meet the guy you’d marry at 17, but still you have doubt so you pick to work all summer. Your freedom of free will changed what someone else said would happen.

It’s not worth it. I’ve seen plenty of shows that show how fortune tellers are fakes. They’ve conned money out of people & drag out the con saying they have a curse on them. It’s pretty crazy.

I don’t know what you beliefs are but for me as a Christian I feel going to a fortune teller opens the doors for attacks from Satan. You are willing putting your trust in another kind of power other than God. That is telling Satan that you trust someone else more than God. That puts you right into Satan’s hands.

Answer by αrєnt чσu σrígínαl ;]
I don’t believe in fortune tellers. I think they would be worth a fortune if they could really tell the future. Anyone could put on a silly hat, wave their hands around and make up a load of bullshit about someone’s life and earn some money. If you go, don’t take anything they say too seriously. I’m not sure exactly how it works but if you ask them questions, don’t ask them anything like “How old will I be when I die?” or “Will I ever find love?” because you may not like the answer, and make yourself paranoid over something that may just be a load of crap from a scam artist.

Answer by Maybelle
i would love to go to a fortune teller i just dont know where i can go. but im into that stuff just do what you want to do.

Answer by lιqυιd conғιdence
I went to one, one time. I didn’t go thinking it was all serious. I just went for a bit of fun, just messing around. This was like 2 years ago, I’m 16 now. I don’t really remember what she said but I guess its not like it matters to you anyway. I suggest if you do it, just do it for fun, don’t take anything too seriously, because at the end of the day, nobody knows FOR SURE what will happen in the future.


Born and brought up in India. When I came in to senses . i was able to see strange figures in surroundings. When ever i told this to my mom. She used to laugh at me and always said you are day dreaming.

I was always able to see dead people ever since i was 10 years old. My journey in to the field of Tantra started at the age of 14 years, when a neighbor gave me Durgasaptshati book. which is very powerful stotra path of goddess Durga.

Also i started studying Palmistry. When i was 16 years old i was attacked by a demon while i was sleeping by that time i was following tantra and saved my self by mantra power. Since then I never looked back and I kept trying new Dhyan Yoga, Mantra and Tantra sadhnas procedures.
