Palm, cards and birthdate reading are all kinds of techniques that fortunetellers use to tell one’s fortune. Some people think they control their fate and destiny; however, when they face problems, they go to the fortuneteller to have their fortune told.
Srey Puch, 24, said she consulted a fortuneteller because she wanted to learn about fortunetelling and because she wanted to know when she would get a job.
“When I applied for a job, there was no one calling me; it was silent,” she said.
“I felt frustrated, so I went to see a soothsayer to foretell what lay ahead and why I hadn’t achieved what I wanted.”
She added that the fortuneteller found out something bad, and advised her to have a water ceremony with the elders in order to ward off the bad things; therefore, she had one.
“After I had the water ceremony, I felt better and happier than before.”
Regardless of whether the fortuneteller was accurate, she said that she believed that this was related to the human mind and feelings; if one was unhappy, they would not do better, but if their mind was clear, then they could solve problems easily.
