I am not in the slightest bit superstitious, I don’t believe in fate, I think you make your own luck, I’m not religious, have never seen a ghost or had a seeing moment. I’m about as scientific and logical as you can get……
…..but I do love to look at my horoscope now and then, when I ‘want’ something to happen but have little control over it (if the new relationship will work out, when we will conceive, if we will find the right house this week, how quickly our house will sell etc.). Then I cant help but look at my horoscope, go online to one of those type a question get a mystic answer from the Buddha, the Lucky Cat, the magic 8 ball or other.
Today Magic 8 told me I will have boy conceived this month and that I will buy one of the houses I am viewing this evening! If the first was correct I would be over the moon, the second would be a surprise as its my least likely to buy house on the list. But hey, it might surprise me when I get there!
So I’m asking for your stories, what has been predicted, who or what predicted it and were they correct, or are you all sceptics like me! I’d love to hear some success stories.
And a poll, for fun.

I’m Chinese, so my family is fairly supersitious; however, I only read western horoscopes/predictions for entertainment. I do use auspicious dates and feng shui as guidelines for things, but it’s never set in stone.

I had my cards read a few times by the same person. Each time was a year to a year and a half apart.
Once she told me that a dark haired woman was out to get me at work but not to worry because she’d have hard times after. A month later my boss (who was a dark haired woman) had me fired for no apparent reason. She herself was out the door 6 months later due to trouble with the finances that she caused.
The last time was about 2 years ago. She told me that I was going to fall head over heels in love, that it would be an important relationship and that it would have something to do with the number nine. I met my now FI about a month later on June 9.

No. IMHO they tend to make these things vague enough you could apply them to anyone. And anyone willing could twist them to fit their lives.
Though yours with the baby and house clearly isn’t vague lol maybe I’m wrong! Please come back and update us 🙂

LarLa: When you met you FI on the 9th June do you think about the card reader? Did you think this is it, or did the fortune make you try harder because it could have been? Lots of psychology!
LeopardPrintBee: Unfortunately I was asking direct questions of a predictor with a magic 8 ball front page online. So I would always get direct answers, though I doubt that they can be relied on!

I have seen a psychic once in person. When she comes back to this area, I will see her again.
The things she knew, without me even hinting at things, were crazy. I was very guarded and made sure not to give her hints about stuff.
The biggest thing that caught me off guard was when we got talking about my daughter she said, “The guides are showing me her bedroom. There’s something there that needs to be addressed. Like a piece of furniture or something…it needs to be looked after right away, or removed immediately.”
I was flabberghasted. There was a tall bookshelf in DD’s room that I had been after DH to anchor to the wall for weeks. When I went home and told him that, it was anchored within the hour. lol

I actually read tarot for myself and others, but never to predict the future or anything. I use it for advice/to give others advice and for spirit contact. It’s wild what you can be told with tarot and if you can find a legitimate medium, they will move you to tears I guarantee it. Then again, I’m one of the bees with “weird” spiritual beliefs so take all of that with a grain of salt.

I went to see a psychic medium who is very well known and travels the country. I also tend to be a non-believer in anything regarding the after life/heaven/religion. I went to go see him in a group of about 50 people, and the date happened to fall on the 5 year anniversary of my grandma’s passing. Her and I were very, very close. Before leaving for the group reading, I went into my room, shut the door, and against all my logic, I prayed to her. I told her that I miss her so much, and that I needed some sort of proof to know she’s still with me and I told her how much it hurts that I don’t know she’s there. Well…..I went to the reading with 5 other family members, and as soon as he began, he locked eyes with me and came right over. He told me details NO ONE could know-he told me that my grandma was with me, that she was thankful for the Christmas trees on her grave being decorated at Christmas time, that she misses her embroidered blanket featuring all the names of her grandchildren, that she acknowledges she died on my other grandma’s birthday, and then that other grandma died on my cousin’s birthday, and she also told the medium that she saved my grandpa this past summer from his internally bleeding ulcer. Literally, word for word. No one could ever know those things. I have never cried so hard in my life after that, because I now know she hears me and she’s with me always. Many of them are a sham, but when it’s real, it’s amazing.

SoonToBeMrsT16: Is it difficult? I’ve toyed with buying a set for years. But I’m not sure I could be bothered to learn….and then may not believe the results anyway! I’ve had a go at reading tea leaves before in a cup of destiny, but feel like I would only ever pull out what I wanted to hear as there is a lot of interpretation involved.
Also tarot makes me think of ouija a little bit, asking for answers of (often some fairly dark images in the decks) wouldn’t like to find proof in a negative way!
WhatMaeBee: That’s amazing, I hope that it helped you to hear from your Grandma.

Maybe there are some truly gifted people out there, but I think the vast majority of psychics are hacks. I’ve certainly never had anything come true, and sometimes the opposite has happened.

When I was in middle school I wrote the horoscope for our school newspaper. I absolutely, 100% made it all up but I had tons of people tell me that I was really good at predicting things! The key is to be vague enough so that people can make it fit their own situation. At least that’s how I did it!
For the record, I read my horoscope from time to time. Not because I think it can predict the future, but because it’s fun. Especially Free Will Astrology, which I think is very entertaining and well written.

LilLis: Tarot is different in that it is mainly helping you figure out your own message through interpretation of the cards. Everyone interprets differently. It’s hard to learn, but once you get the hang of it, it can be a lot of fun and very helpful. I think the biggest difference between tarot and ouija is that you aren’t calling out like, “Is anybody there?”, a question which allows anything supernatural/bad/demonic to answer and join you. That’s also something you shouldn’t do with ouija, but that’s a rant for another day.
The imagery on the cards is just that: imagery. It’s art and meant to appeal to different people. For instance, my friend loves cat decks and celtic decks, but those don’t really appeal to me. I like really artistic, dreamy decks or anything with a lot of female imagery, but also have a soft spot for a couple darker decks because I think the drawings are pretty. The imagery doesn’t really effect the results you get, but your intent behind it does.

Christy42213: I’ve often thought that the really gifted people were gifted in their ability to notice subtle body language changes and to connect with individuals in such a way that they are able to read their life story with very little help! But that is when I am being a sceptic.

housebee: Will you be “sitting the month” after giving birth? All the Chinese traditions are very interesting to me.

FutureDrAtkins: Ugh, my mom wants me too lol. However if she stays with me for a month I’ll go insane. I am still planning on taking a lot of the herbal supplements, but I don’t know about eating all of the traditional foods, especially if my mom is cooking (she’s absolutely terrible). I probably won’t be able to leave the house though, between the C section and having two babies to deal with, I’ll be lucky if I shower lol (I still plan on showering).
