How to read tea leaves: the rules for making a drink and the meaning of symbols
Guessing on the tea leaves appeared more than 7 centuries ago in the East. It was one of the most popular ways to know your future.
In Italy, the values of the resulting figures were finalized.
Guessing on the coffee grounds is considered the most reliable and simple. It is easy to hold at home. To do this, you will need a teaspoon of ground (not soluble) coffee for one cup of water, a Turk, and about an hour to brew a drink and interpret the symbols seen.
The most favorable time for such divination is night or evening.
- In order for fortune-telling to be successful, proper preparation of the room is important. It should dim the room and remove all sources of loud sound.
- You can not guess for fun. By this, a person will infuriate otherworldly forces, and the next time they need to get an answer to a really important question, they will respond with an evil joke.
- It is necessary to decide on the questions that a person wants to ask the providence in advance, and not to hastily invent them when the coffee is already brewed.
- Before pouring the drink into the cup, you need to shake the container where it was prepared — so the thick will not settle on the bottom, but will fall into the cup.
They drink coffee, slowly and not being distracted by third-party events, while thinking about the essence of their question.
If at this time someone knocked on the door or phoned, do not continue to divination. Fate signs that the answer to the question is not yet known, or it’s too early for a person to find out.
After all the coffee is drunk, you need to cover the cup with a saucer, turn it upside down and turn it seven times from left to right. The figures that were formed after the cup was lifted from the saucer, and constitute the result of fortune telling.
For divination to be successful, you need to find at least five characters. It is customary to consider them in this order:
- 1. From the top edge to the bottom.
- 2. When the cup is turned by the handle to the guessing — clockwise.
- 3. Then counterclockwise.
- 4. The bottom of the cup and saucer.
Patterns formed on the saucer tell about the past, and the symbols found on the walls and on the bottom of the cup predict the future.
If chaotic strokes do not fold into a solid image the first time, you can turn the cup at different angles. Over time, the fortuneteller will learn to notice the smallest details and build a picture out of them.
It is forbidden to ask for help from other people and decipher the signs they see with respect to themselves.
To interpret proceed only after all the pictures are found.

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes. I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me.
However, I decided that I still needed personal help. Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when I had to give 11 for renting an apartment. It was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight.
I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
