Fortune-telling, according to The Encyclopedia Americana, involves “predicting one’s fortune or future, by alleged signs or indications seen and interpreted by amateur or professional diviners.”
Fortune-telling is, therefore, a form of divination, a procedure for gaining knowledge of the unknown or of the future by extraordinary means. That is why the names of many of its methods end in -mancy (from the Greek man·tei′a: “the mode of divination”). There are, for example, cartomancy (fortune-telling by cards), chiromancy (by the lines of one’s hand) and crystallomancy (by use of a crystal ball or other transparent object).
Many methods of fortune-telling involve looking for and interpreting omens or signs that supposedly foreshadow future events. Astrology is in this category. The sun, moon, stars and planets are said to affect earthly and human events. Each star group and each planet is assumed to exert a particular influence, positive or negative. Astrologers cast a “horoscope” or chart of the positions of the heavenly bodies relative to one another at the time of a person’s birth. From this they claim to be able to read his personality and destiny.
Palmistry is a way of fortune-telling by examining the lines and other characteristics of the palm of someone’s hand. Showing a close connection with astrology, palmists speak of the hand as having “mounts,” named after the seven planets known to ancient astrologers.
Some fortune-tellers work with Tarot cards. These special cards include 22 “Tarots” (or trumps) and 56 numeral cards. The numeral cards are divided into four suits. Each suit is given an overall sense and each card is given a specific meaning. The cards are interpreted according to their assigned meanings, modified by the combination of one card with another when dealt, drawn or spread out.
Tarot reading, too, is connected with astrology. The book How the Tarot Speaks to Modern Man explains that Tarot readers “base their interpretation of the cards upon the structure of the universe, particularly the solar system as symbolized by the Holy Cabala.” The “Cabala” (a body of Jewish occult doctrine) divides up the universe into three elements (fire, air and water), seven planets and the twelve signs of the zodiac—22 in all, corresponding with the 22 trump cards of the Tarot deck.
There are many other methods of fortune-telling by omens, including the way tea leaves settle at the bottom of a cup, the configurations of drops of oil on the surface of water and the fall of dice or dominoes.
Do you think that something that God directly condemns in his inspired Word could help you? Actually, fortune-telling could do considerable harm. How so?
One reason is given in The World Book Encyclopedia: “Such a belief may rob a person of trust in himself and his own ability. He may begin to look on himself as a ‘pawn of fortune’ who cannot change his fate. He then may lose ambition.”
More importantly, since fortune-telling involves the use of “uncanny power,” which God condemns, it brings His disfavor, making a person “detestable to Jehovah,” preventing him from having an acceptable relationship with God. (Deut. 18:12) Moreover, the Bible associates prediction of the future by fortune-tellers with the influence of demons. Dabbling in fortune-telling can open up one to harassment from the invisible realm.
No genuine good, therefore, can come from seeking the guidance of fortune-tellers or reading literature designed to help people to develop psychic powers. Christians do well to follow the example of persons of the first century C.E. whom the Lord Jesus Christ favored because they “did not get to know the ‘deep things of Satan.’”—Rev. 2:24.
For those who may already be involved in practices like fortune-telling, the Bible contains the following helpful example: “Many of those who had become believers would come and confess and report their practices openly. Indeed, quite a number of those who practiced magical arts brought their books together and burned them up before everybody.” (Acts 19:18, 19) People who became Christians made a clean break from such practices.
Fortune-tellers with their psychic abilities cannot help you to know God and his requirements for acceptable worship. Nor can they provide sound guidance for everyday life and a sure hope for the future. That information is found only in the Holy Bible, which is truly “inspired of God.” (2 Tim. 3:16; Ps. 119:105; Isa. 46:10) It is study of the Word of God, therefore, and not the consulting of fortune-tellers, that will truly help you in your life.

Answer by The Dude

Answer by If u understood scriptures u would not be Atheist
they have made society worst by turning God further away from us. He hates these things. They have lied to us and our children by infiltrating Magic beliefs in our society.
The following Scriptures can be helpful to this question:
‘Without God we are nothing,without Christ we have no hope’
‘Everytime a Christian is persecuted, mocked, slandered or hated the bible is proven to be true’
“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom” “The fool says in His heart there is no God”- The Bible.
“Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”-Daniel 12:10
Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. -Daniel 12: 2-3
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. -revelations 6:12-14
From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.-Revelations 16:21
They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. Revelations 9:5-6

Uh… they’ve had an impact on popular culture, being a common cliched plot device in movies for foreshadowing the protagonist’s death?
Answer by philebus
OK. Let’s start with where they come from…
Playing cards arrived in Europe during the mid 14th century via Islamic trade with. The cards we received from them probably derived from 7th century Chinese money games, which included suits such as coins and stacks of coins. The Islamic packs had 52 cards with 10 pip cards and three court cards in each of four suits. The suit signs were Cups, Coins, Polo Sticks, and Scimitars, while the court cards were a King and two soldiers. Europeans didn’t play polo at that time, so the polo sticks lost their paddles to become batons, and the court cards became a King, a Rider, and a Footman. These are now known as the Latin suits.
In the mid 15th century we see experiments in adding to this pack. The first tarot pack was created at this time for the Milanese court: The courts had a female of each of the three ranks added, along with a Fool and a fifth suit of 21 picture cards. The extra female courts were dropped, retaining only the Queen to give us the familiar 78 cards we have today. The picture cards took as their theme a Christian triumph procession, hence their early name of trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our work trump. And this is what they were, a suit of fixed trump cards for a family of card games that is still played throughout much of continental Europe today. The games are known as Tarocchi in Italy, which was truncated to Tarock in most other countries, and further reduced to Tarot (pronounced Taro) in France. Here is perhaps the first of your major social influences – tarot gave us the word trump and popularised the device of trumps in card games.
At the start of the 18th century we see a major development in Germany, where there was significant competition in the playing card industry. Here they began to produce tarot cards with French suits (Diamonds, Hearts, Spades, and Clubs), along with trumps of very different designs, featuring such things as exotic animals, or local landmarks. The reasons for this are twofold and probably a response to competition. The traditional suit signs required costly woodblock printing, while the French suits could be reproduced quickly and cheaply with simple stencils. Also, the Italian designs were unfamiliar to central and more western Europeans (such as the Female Pope and Hanged Man) so new trump designs that would be relevant and of greater interest to their customers would have been a good move. French suited tarot packs of this kind gradually become more and more popular and are now the dominant form of tarot card used for game play. However, some countries still use the old Italian cards for games – some of which require special variations of them (such as the Tarocchino of Bologna). Today, you can find games played with these cards in the US thanks to Czechoslovakian immigrants – there is a strong and growing community of Tarock players in Texas.
It was not until the end of the 18th century that a Parisian occultist, Antoine Court de Gebelin, picked up the cards and declared them to be the codified wisdom of Ancient Egyptian priests, carried to Europe by the Gypsies. The claim has long been debunked by historians but somehow manages to endure in the popular media. He also began the use of the cards for divination (popularly called fortune telling). Other occultists of the 19th century began to develop the notion of an occult tarot and made the first moves to re-design them to reflect their proposals. For about 100 years these ideas were limited only to France and it was not until the end of the 19th century that some British occultists began to translate French occult texts and import tarot cards to the English speaking world where there was no remembered history of tarot as a game. Members of the Golden Dawn gave us many of the popular occult beliefs that people have about tarot today and two of them dramatically redesigned the cards giving us the Rider Waite Smith and the Crowley Harris. These two packs have been the basis of most modern occult packs that you will see today.
Sadly, the social impact of the rise of the occult tarot has been to obscure the actual history of the cards and to deny many any knowledge of some of the world’s best card games.
