Eh, I take anything like that with a grain of salt. I’ve seen a few programs and read some books on how people use visual cues and vague guesses to “feel out” your responses to their questions/minor predictions and proceed from there to get an “accurate” reading for you. I think it doesn’t take much to believe almost anything someone tells you, especially if they manage a few good guesses at the start.

I once had a palm reader tell me that the guy I’d been after for a while (FI) wasn’t the guy for me and she saw a red-headed, younger man I’d meet that year (4 years ago) who would be “the one”.

I started dating Fiance a month later, there was never any younger red-headed man and we’re now happily engaged sooooo…

I mean, if her prediction is true, you won’t know until you’re older, so there isn’t anything you can do. Just live your life for now!

I did it once and it was incredibly accurate.  That’s why I’m always scared to do those kinds of things again. I’d rather just live life without wondering when something predicted could happen.

When I was 14 or 15, I had a psychic tell me I was going to get divorced. Nice. That’s stuck with me over the years, but really, I’ll take it with a grain of salt like the others have said. I saw another psychic a few months back and she told me that Darling Husband and I would have a long and happy life together, and that he adored me and we made each other better people. I’ll take her prediction over the first ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seek a second opinion!

I was going to say the exact same thing redheadem said, that you won’t know if the prediction comes true for a long time to come, so don’t worry about it now.  I had my palm read many years ago and was shocked at the reading, but the prediction came true a long time later.  And I have a very happy and blessed life now.  Trust life and yourself and all will be well.

The thing with those “predictions” is that they are vague enough that the individual can tailor them to fit with their life.  For example, there will be a third man to sweep me off my feet could mean you will have a son in your future and he will become the love of your life, as is common with a mother-child bond.

I saw a psychic 7 years ago who VERY accurately predicted my marriage and having a baby. She said I was going to move somewhere down south, meet a man with brown hair and blue eyes. Within 18 months we’d be married and have a child. At the time I  was dating the man I thought I was going to be with, and I wasn’t even thinking about moving nor did I know anyone down south.

A few months later we broke up, and my best friend who had recently transferred to a job down south offered to help me find a place near her. I had completely forgotten about the psychic until I got engaged, and my friend was like “OMG it’s just like the psychic said!!” (she was with me, we had our readings at the same time). I got chills!

Not to freak you out, but stranger things have happened.

@MapleMoose:  Exactly! It’s the same thing with horoscopes, they’re vague and undetailed so anyone can take one and apply it to their life and find meaning.

I once read my mom a different horoscope from the one under her star sign and she went ON AND ON about how chillingly accurate it was and blah blah blah. She was so mad when I told her she wasn’t a Pisces so it didn’t apply ๐Ÿ˜›

Eh, I had a palm reader tell me at 13 that I would be a nurse or a teacher and have 2 girls and a boy.

Pffft!

@LizLemon:  Haha, love the image of a whirlwind nursing home romance ๐Ÿ™‚  I’d definitely not put a single ounce of stock into it and plunge forward into your happy life with Fiance.
