The Ethics of Fortune-Telling & Its Impact on Mental Health

Fortune-telling and its Controversies

For thousands of years, people have sought answers about the future through fortune-telling. From tea leaves to tarot cards and horoscopes, people have been drawn to the idea of knowing what lies ahead. However, the ethics of fortune-telling have been debated just as long.

On one hand, fortune-telling can provide comfort and guidance to those seeking the unknown. It can offer insight into potential decisions and help individuals prepare for the future. In some cases, fortune-telling can even offer a sense of control and empowerment in an uncertain world.

On the other hand, fortune-telling can also have a harmful impact on mental health. The allure of predicting the future can become an obsession for some individuals, leading to anxiety and fear over every decision that must be made. The constant search for answers can become all-consuming and hinder an individual’s ability to live in the present.

Moreover, the predictions offered by fortune-tellers are not always accurate. In fact, most fortune-tellers admit that their predictions are subjective and not based on scientific evidence. Therefore, individuals who rely on fortune-telling for guidance may be disappointed with the results and feel unfulfilled in their quest for answers.

Additionally, fortune-telling may reinforce harmful stereotypes and beliefs. For example, some fortune-tellers claim to predict a person’s future based on their race or ethnicity. This reinforces harmful stereotypes and prejudices and can lead to discrimination and exclusion.

It is important to consider the ethics of fortune-telling carefully. While it can offer comfort and guidance to some, it can also have a negative impact on mental health and reinforce harmful beliefs. Therefore, individuals must take precautions when seeking answers from fortune-tellers.

One option is to approach fortune-telling with a healthy dose of scepticism. Recognize that predictions are subjective and not based on evidence. Use fortune-telling as a tool for insight and guidance, but do not make important decisions based solely on these predictions.

Another option is to seek out reputable and ethical fortune-tellers. Do your research and seek out fortune-tellers who have a proven track record of ethical practice. Ensure that they are not making false promises or reinforcing harmful stereotypes.

Lastly, it is important to remember that the future cannot be predicted with absolute certainty. Life is full of uncertainty, and that is what makes it interesting. Instead of seeking out absolute answers, embrace the unknown and view it as an opportunity for growth and learning.


Astrology as a Tool for Guidance

While fortune-telling may have its controversies, astrology can be considered as a tool for fortune-telling because it provides certain deterministic answers that can sound fatalistic to the person asking questions about their life. However, it is important to approach astrology with a healthy dose of scepticism and recognize that it is not a substitute for personal responsibility and action. Simply put, astrology may be used for fortune-telling, but in itself, astrology is not fortune-telling.

In my astrology practice, I uphold the philosophy of “soft determinism” or “fatalism with free will.” Some things in life are fated, but we have the free will to take certain actions to change the course of our fate. Therefore, I believe that astrology is a great coaching tool for guidance, which can help you attain the outcomes you desire in your life and business.
