COMPLETION

Exactly 3 months ago today I read the cards for someone. ‘Nope,’ I said. ‘It doesn’t look like it. Period.’ Today the person wrote the following, after a very concise report including all the details:

‘So, there you go, you were right! But you already knew it, didn’t you?’

Well, I can’t say I knew it, but the cards showed it. So, about those predictive readings that some are so afraid of: The fortuneteller never predicts. She reads the cards. Period.

Note on the cards: These were not the cards read for the occasion I’m referring to above. Nor was this the spread either.

  1. “The fortuneteller never predicts. She reads the cards. Period.”

    Awesome!!!

    What deck are you using here? Is it still available somewhere?

  2. SOME COMMENTS LEFT ON FB:

    Enrique Enriquez: “Prediction” is the name of a certain type of narrative some can make about any given sentence.

    Camelia Elias: Exactly. I don’t get hung up on what we name what we do. I look at the cards, and that’s all.

    Camelia Elias: Ha, ha. I ‘knew’ it. Thanks for letting me know. And congrats, as I said, before they won.

    Chad Weidner: The randomness of the act, within the system, will invariably provide some degree of truthfulness.

    Camelia Elias: Chad, I prefer to not speak about truthfulness in fortunetelling, as I believe that fortunetelling participates in both, the creation of events and in saying something about them. As such, it’s quite above what we call ‘truth’.
