What Culture Does Fortune Telling Come from?

Fortune telling comes from an array of cultures and beliefs.  It is the belief what one’s future will hold based on what has transpired in one’s past.

Fortunes can be told through astrology, dreams, cards, what a person eats or drinks, what they wear or put on their body, what they say or what they do, what path they walk on, what their name is or what their birthday holds.

Fortune telling can come from what someone sees in the clouds or what they hear out of the blue.

The belief that one’s future can be predicted comes from many different places and cultures. Ancient civilizations such as Babylonia and Rome practiced fortune telling because they believed there was a divine power that would allow them to see what will happen before it happened.

The practice of fortune-telling can be largely attributed to the Roman goddess, Fortuna. She ruled over all human endeavors and controlled what occurred in life such as birth, marriage, health, etc.

China gives credit for fortune-telling to the I Ching, also known as the Book of Changes. This is a book that was created countless years ago and is still used today to tell what the future holds for those who consult it.

Egyptians believed that fortune-telling came from what they ate or drank. They created what is known as dream books to help interpret what they dreamed about. These dreams would be what people could expect to happen in the future.

The belief that what one wears can affect what their fortune will become is attributed to the Celtic culture. Their tradition is to leave out what they wear every morning because it would be what they will wear for the rest of their day, thus what will take place within 24 hours.

Various religions believe what one says can reveal what will happen in their life. The theory that what one says is what will come to fruition was attributed to Christianity.

They believed that what they said would take place because God always listened to what people said, thus what they said would take place, either good or bad.

One’s birthday can be seen as a way to tell what others can expect within the coming year.

A person’s birthday holds what is called the Sun sign which reveals what will happen in their life. Those who practice astrology understand what each sun sign means for those born on what day of the month.

Many cultures attribute fortune-telling to what path one chooses while letting fate take its course.

They believe that what kind of path they walk on can be what they will face in what the future holds for them. It is what some people feel helps guide their fate or destiny to whichever direction they choose.

What others do or what others wear has been attributed to fortune-telling for what a person should expect when it comes to what path one chooses to walk upon.

Those who believe what others wear or what they do can affect what one’s future holds created what is called the practice of “Walking a Pound.” This comes from what people wore and what they did, then what fortune telling would provide for their future.

People who live in multiple cultures claim that what they feel about their body is what one’s future holds. It is what some people consider a metaphysical experience when fortune-telling has taken place. It can be what they feel in their heart and what they know deep down that what will happen to them, no matter what it is.

Fortune telling comes from what all of humanity believes about the future and what it could hold. What one wears, what one eats or drinks, what they see, what they feel on their body, and what others do or say can eventually lead to what future awaits.

There are many different ways to predict what the future holds, but fortune telling has been attributed to what culture does for thousands of years.

It is what people believe can happen if what they wear, what they eat or drink, what they say, and what they feel on their body can predict what the future holds for them.
