    Why are such services even allowed? Recently seen one of these on TV and everyone that I know would call it bullshit. I'm skeptical, very skeptical, but not fully enough to call it complete bullshit. What do you think? Maybe it's just because I'm a dreamer... lol

    I don't understand that either. It's clearly a scam. Anyone in their right mind knows that. But perhaps it just hasn't been proven yet that it's a scam, so they allow it..Either way I think it is complete bs to legally deceive people like that.

    As far as I know, In the US is legal because it's classified as "Entertainment".

    I ran a clinic with a psychic healer for long time then It got shut it down due to funding problems and I decided to move on. There are real psychics and there are bullshit con artists who lie. I wouldnt say 90% BS more like 50%.half of psychics are just scammers and then the other half are real psychics.sometimes its just luck of the draw because its hard to tell.

    Think of it as a fortune cookie meets Dungeons and Dragons:
    Each card has 'vital statistics' which go with different areas in your life. Depending on the order the card was drawn, it could mean a series of stats or what not.
    They are used to illustrate what is happening or what may come to happen in your life.

    Nobody can say for certain about the true origin of tarot cards, similar to the oujia board. Both are considered unholy, abomination, and not of God, etc.
    It comes down to the intent and belief of the individual - as with all things, it is only true if you believe it to be.

    My advice: Stay far clear of anything which is unholy, and abomination, and not of God... Even if you're athiest, better safe then sorry!!
