Fortune teller

A fortune teller is a person who practices fortune telling.

Fortune telling is an art or practice of predicting an information or knowledge about a person’s overall life. This could be considered as a divination practice, the only thing that hinders people to calling it a divination is that it is not a religious practice that involves a ritual or calling out gods or deities or spirits. Fortune telling is a more informal and easygoing practice that can be done in the comforts of your home. It is a more casual approach to foreseeing the future rather than requiring the participants to form a circular position, offering a sacrifice and call spirits.
