    Gypsy Magic: Gypsy Fortune Telling

  • Shiloh Vosburg

    Whether gazing into a crystal ball, reading palms and tea leaves or divining the future with a deck of Tarot cards, the Gypsy Fortune teller is alive and well in everyone's imagination. Though she may be considered a stereotype, with one foot in the real world palm reading happens to be a practical way for many Roma women to earn money, especially if folk believe it is in their power to reveal important future events. But, just as not all Romani women are fortune tellers, not all fortune tellers can read the future. This stereotype will never fade.
