What is a Soothsayer?


A soothsayer is a person who can predict and envision the future by a supernatural, mystical, intuitive, innate means or a very logical reasoning. The term soothsayer came from the Old English and goes way back in the 14th century and was used up until the early 17th century; “Sooth” meaning truth that has been put together with “say”, that literally means “an act of stating the truth”.


Soothsayers are more popularly known as fortune tellers, prophets and seers. They are people who claim to foresee the future and what’s there to come your way. It comes from an innate talent or ability or sometimes, they base their forecasts and predictions from omens, signs, warnings and threats.


Before, soothsayers were considered and believed to have been profitable and effective consultants and advisers for the people especially those in the government or the ones with power. They followed their advices and took their guidance as if it were very accurate and precise. People went to war because soothsayers told them that it will be a beneficial fight. People married their other halves because soothsayers tell them that they are a perfect match or that he or she is “the one”. People killed other people because soothsayers told them they would ruin their lives. That’s how it was before when soothsayers were looked up to.


But today, soothsayers or fortune tellers are being ridiculed and scoffed at because there are only a few people in this generation who believe in them. Although, there are still some who would hire or pay a fortune teller to ask for advices, guidance, enlightenment and direction in their lives. There are still people who go to soothsayers to ask if their business will work out or when they will find “the one”.


Other terms for soothsayer: a prophet, a diviner, a clairvoyant, a psychic, an augur, a chaneller, a fortune teller, a haruspex, a horoscopist, a medium and a lot more.


But why do people consult with soothsayers, fortune tellers and clairvoyants?


This is the real question that some of us may find hard to understand the answer. As mentioned above, in this generation, more and more people grow doubtful, hesitant and unsettled about anything regarding psychics, mediums, clairvoyants and fortune tellers. But for the believers and the supporters, here are some of their reasons as to why they consult and have a reading with soothsayers or clairvoyants who are believed to foretell the future:

1. Guidance through some of life’s hard decisions


In life, there are major decisions that we would have to face every now and then. Whether you like it or not, hard decisions will always come your way. Some people go to soothsayers or clairvoyants to ask for guidance and counseling as to what they would do regarding a major dilemma that has come in their lives. Sometimes, you want to seek advices from those people who has the ability to grasp and obtain messages, visions and information about the future, rather than just speaking to a friend or a family member who also does not have an idea of what kind of advice to give you. Soothsayers and clairvoyants could also make you realize the facts that will make you consider things that will be more beneficial to you, to your loved ones and to the people around you

2. Looking for the best love advices

Let us face it, no one wants to be alone. No one wants to grow old alone. All of us would love to create a family of our own with kids and a loving partner, yes? But let’s also face the fact that not everyone in this world are lucky enough to find “the one” or the right person for them to spend the rest of their lives with. This makes a lot of people feel scared for their future and insecure about themselves. Consulting with a soothsayer or clairvoyant would help soothe you wretched, agitated and frantic self. Of course, they could not tell you who exactly this person is or where the precise location you two will meet but they can set your mind into thinking positively to attract the right people in your life.


3. You want to know what the future holds for you


For a lot of us, the future is filled with doubt, apprehension, fear and uncertainty. Soothsayers and clairvoyants can help you get a hold of yourself and help you decide as to what you can do to improve your current self. They cannot tell you about how the future will go or what exact things and events will happen but they will give you ideas of what may occur in the near future and give you advices as to how you can handle it on your own.

4. Seeking comfort


Whether you have lost a loved one or you are currently under a lot of stress from work, your partner, your family or whatever you are going through, talking to a soothsayer or clairvoyant will help you get the comfort that you would never get from anyone else. They could soothe your pain or your worries and could help you feel better about everything, yourself, your problems and your surroundings. They can also catch a glimpse of what’s in store for you and incorporate it to the advise that they will give you to make you feel more empowered and enlightened.

Although soothsayers and clairvoyants have the ability to predict or foretell the future, remember that they can only see as much as glimpses, visions, signs or symbols. Therefore, they are not always accurate and precise. They could be telling you about getting a lot of money by the end of the year but they cannot tell you how you will get it or from whom. So don’t base everything on their prediction and still allow yourself to be the one to decide for your future. Just take their advices and keep it in mind as it might be useful for you someday.
