Secrets of Gypsy FortunetellingBook - 1988
Have you ever wanted to learn how to tell fortunes? Who better to teach you this than a Gypsy. After all, the Gypsies are famous for their powerful fortunetellers. Now you can learn their systems in Secrets of Gypsy Fortunetelling by Raymond Buckland - who is half Gypsy himself.
The Gypsies use several systems of fortunetelling, and Ray shares more than a dozen of them here. You'll learn how to see the future in a crystal ball, or any bright, reflective surface. You'll also learn palmistry. Actually, the book goes much further than just reading palms, because you you'll also learn how to interpret the shape of the hand, the texture of the skin, and much more.
Have you ever wondered how it is possible to tell the future from tea leaves? This book explains it all: the type of tea to use, how to prepare it, how much fluid to leave in the cup, how to manipulate the cup, and more. Eventually, you'll see the leaves forming patterns on the cup. Ray includes a dictionary with interpretations for almost 300 symbols so you can start practicing this ancient divinatory system right away.
What else can you learn? How to read Tarot cards and regular playing cards. How to use dice and dominos to determine fate and the future. Divination with crystals and gemstones. Fortunetelling with fire. Telling fortunes with sticks, knives, and even using a needle as a pendulum to answer questions. You'll also learn how Gypsies were able to interpret omens such as those dealing with weather. Even the position of moles on the body has meaning, and those meanings are revealed here.
If you are interested in any form of fortunetelling, this is the book you need to get. It is an entire bookstore of information.
