Atheist Fortune Telling

Atheist Fortune Telling, Singer Sweatshop Rotterdam

Atheist Fortune Telling offers 1-to-1 readings, giving insight and guidance on your problems. Your fortune is told using a range of made-up techniques and tools found in junk shops: childrens playing cards, Virgin Mary angel deck, a bag of household objects. Atheist Fortune Telling critiques and recuperates new age mumbo-jumbo, satisfying the thirst for 'answers' while exposing their real source: the unconscious projections of the client herself.

Such an opening experience. I feel like there's a weight lifted off my shoulders... I feel somehow hopeful now, and I am still confused but for some reason I feel like I can deal with it.

 

One client's reading: Past, Present, Future

The question: How will it work out moving into a new house with my partner?

The reading: The giraffe is very well adapted to its environment, able to reach up high. Though it has real trouble bending down to drink. Like me: I'm anxious about moving into this small, enclosed space. Will it be too small for the both of us? I will need to practice being quiet, and listening more. I can be too talkative sometimes - the chatterbox. But when it's not wound up, the chatterbox can also be silent. Like the giraffe, I realize I can adapt myself to this new situation.

The reading opened up my mind to recognizing symbols, and the potential of seemingly indifferent projections.
