love readings

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Do you believe in fortune readings?

I have heard people say it’s a stupid thing, to believe in it. But it’s the superstitious wonders that get me dwelling on it.

I’ve just had my fortune read over the weekend, and I’m dwelling on it, as if I want to believe it, but I don’t also. Things that were said included me admiring this guy still in my past (which I still do), having problems with family pertaining to myself being the center of the problems (being gay, me being outed, coming out), etc. There’s so much to write down, but it’s not really relevant. That was about the two most significant readings of my past. For the future, I kinda dwell on it. I don’t know whether to believe it or not. Again, superstitious. I want to say that if I believe in it, I’ll act on it unconsciously, or maybe even consciously and it’ll turn out like that. If I don’t believe in it, then it won’t. Anyway, my future predicted that I’ll be done with school in about 4-5 years, I’ll be successful, but I’ll up and leave Minnesota for a longggg time. Something will happen, GOOD or AWFUL, which will bring me back to Minnesota (death, forgiving, tying the knots with family, etc). Something that was so hard to describe, it could possibly not be death or tying the knots. Just something. :-/ And I am dwelling all over this. I am not really a superstitious type kinda guy, but y’know, it’s got me wondering.

Oh, and I’ll die alone, like without a “life partner.” And I’ll be a lonely type of guy. I’ll love a guy the most, and he does at first, but he loses the connection with me. And then another will love me the most, but I won’t take notice of him until he disappears from my life, which I’ll be losing a “good” friend.

Anyway, my question is, do you believe in fortune readings? Are you a superstitious type of person? And is it stupid for me to dwell over it?

Thanks in advance.

No, I don’t. I control my destiny not some 55 year old gypsy with nothing better to do.

Besides one time this lady read my friend’s fortune and it ended up being untrue. Waste of 8 bucks!

Answer by Kawal K
yeah stars work but fortune doesn’t depend completely on them… more it depends on our deeds…. saints tell and its also written in holy books that its just 25 5 of our will in our entire life… whther make out of it or we ruin it out… 75 % is predecided and is in God’s hands.. don’t believe in stars .. believe in who made them .. i don’t believe in horoscopes.. they r jst god measures to warn us b4 hand or give an idea of wat mite happen … bt if u have a firm faith in God then u dont need any such things to believe in…. But u should know the meanign of Faith..

Answer by Troy H
I have had my fortune told. None of it came true. If I had it told by someone else, would it have been different and therefore true? I don’t know. At this point, I haven’t seen any truth to it.

Answer by ♣♥ cindoggie ♥♣
i’ve never been to a fortune teller. i don’t think i would give it a lot of thought though, if i did.

Answer by Emmasj :@)
I mess around with Tarot cards. And the most important rule when reading the cards is that NOTHING is set in stone. YOU control your future. Don’t like what the reading says? Get out there and change it.

I believe in these things, but I also know the rules. Destiny is what you make it. Good luck, friend.

Answer by Enticing_Raspberry
I’m not into that kind of stuff.

Answer by Notebook :@)
I try not to believe these. They are so general they make a lot of things sound correct. These kinds of things also make you believe things are set in stone and I dunno I think you should do whatever you want. I think you control your own future. You don’t have to leave Minnesota or miss out on some guy. Just be you and I guess you ll figure out then.

Am I superstitious~ I act as if I’m not. I will say anything about how lame it is to believe in that stuff but in the back of my brain there is a little fear.

Its not stupid I would worry a little to. Hopefully it will pass.

Answer by Clint
Personally, I do not believe in them.

The future is always in a state of flux. What you and others and the environment around us do today re-shapes it on a moment-by-moment basis.

Some of these guys are quite intuitive and read people well. Hence, they feed back bits and pieces of what they have read.

I wouldn’t put too much stock into it.

Is it stupid to dwell over it? nah. It’s normal to ponder whether someone actually has that psychic capacity or not. But I wouldn’t give it more than a small slice of my time.

Answer by Damon A
I don’t put much faith in readings.

You may leave Minnesota, sometimes we have to go where life takes us. My great-grandfather found his way from Nova Scotia to Washington, on to west Texas, then on to north Texas over the course of a lifetime.

And in this day and age, something good or awful calling us back to the familial home is a crap shoot. The fortune teller has a 50/50 chance of being right. I’ve flown half way across the state to be best man at a friend’s wedding, (my “niece” was just born last month,) and I’ve had to fly across two states home to support him when his mother died. I’ve driven damn near to the Gulf of Mexico to console a friend when the dog he had when we were in college had to be put down.

My personal take on that one is that the only thing your fortune teller was telling you was to open your mind to the future, and open your heart to people. I believe we make the future, and the future almost seems to operate on Chaos Theory.

If you try, you’ll find the right person. I look at it sort of like me going to a gun range with a friend; with a handgun, I would have trouble hitting water if I fell out of a boat. But if I don’t give up, I’ll get the target eventually.

Never give up, never give up trying. Life is a roller coaster. You’re always a little scared, but the thrill of life is worth it.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Catholic Wedding Reading help?

I am attempting to pick 2 readings for our wedding ceremony, 1 from the old testament, one from the new.

As many know, most readings are written in words guests cannot understand; I am trying to avoid that. I was wondering if anyone could suggest readings (aside from Saint Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: Love is Patient, love is kind) that is more easily understood and perhaps includes the bride and groom’s names, as does the Prayer of the Faithful?

Thank you so much!!

Answer by frogma (tadpole due July 25th)
Most people understand readings just fine. Your priest should have a book for this purpose. We picked through one with several suggestions.

The Book of Tobit has a wedding night prayer that is lovely.

“Blessed are you, O God of our fathers; praised be your name forever and ever. Let the heavens and all your creation praise you forever. You made Adam and you gave him his wife Eve to be his help and support; and from these two the human race descended. You said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone; let us make him a partner like himself.’ Now, Lord, you know that I take this wife of mine not because of lust, but for a noble purpose. Call down your mercy on me and on her, and allow us to live together to a happy old age.” -Tobit 8:5-7

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Asked a psychic about love, what does this mean?

This is what she said:

“I can tell you are thinking when when… well its when you are least expecting it.
Just have fun and confidence to know you are wonderful to be around and that the person is out there for you.. but not just yet.
Having fun on the way is fine .. but soul mate .. not yet. But soon i have been told.
I can see you spiritual enhancing and strength coming with this. Working on your strengths gifts and beliefs will give you the inner strength you are looking for.
I can see pleasure and abundance coming in but there is hard work around it too. I believe the person you are going to fall in love with will come with baggage… but keep at it and your soul mate will be yours and happy times are ahead.
I see end of summer beginning of Autumn with more settled happy times for you. ”

So is she saying I will meet this person when I least expect it or will I be with this person by the end of summer or the beginning of Autumn, or both? What does she means by settled happy time?

Answer by Planck Epoch
You got duped by an as*hole that can tell you less about your love problems than you can figure out on your own or with a good friend.

Answer by Vincent The Valentine
‘Settled happy times’ could refer to a more calm relationship, somewhat similar to ‘settling down’ but without the commitment. Just enjoying each other’s company.
Things usually come when you least expect it, because if that psychic gave you a specific time and date, you’d want your money back for them being wrong. The end of Summer and beginning of Autumn would be the closest thing to giving a suggested time, but the psychic mentioned what you had in your head- that it’ll come when you least expect it. This saved their *ss, so you can’t go back to the person to say they’re wrong if it doesn’t happen between end of Summer and beginning of Autumn.
Psychics may be fun, but don’t take them too seriously. There are some things in life you’re not supposed to know until it happens, so just live one day at a time.

Answer by Don’t Make Me Come In There!
It means they aren’t psychic…this is a bunch of nebulous dribble. It also sounds like they dusted off their old copy of proverbs and anecdotes.

Sorry.

Answer by Codex Buranus
Honestly, it sounds like a cold reading (where the fortune teller says general information that tends to apply to anyone) if not a full-out canned reading (where the fortune teller crafts one cold reading so general that they can send the same one to every client.) If you know anyone else who uses that same fortune teller, ask to compare readings — it’s actually sorrowfully common with cheap online fortune tellers to find they just send the same reading to everyone.
