According to Christian beliefs, one cannot guess on any day, since the desire to know one’s fate is a sin. But experienced fortune-tellers, on the contrary, claim that on Friday the 13th the concentration of energies is so powerful that you will definitely get an answer to your questions.
Divination on wax
The best time for divination is deep evening (10 or 11 o’clock). Take a deep plate and pour water into it. Place a church candle nearby. If you wear a cross or rings, take them off.
Light a candle, take it in your hands, close your eyes and mentally ask a question that worries you. Then tilt the candle flame over the plate and wait for the wax to drip. Without opening your eyes, count to 13 and remove the candle. The frozen wax figure will be the answer to your request, you can find the interpretation yourself.
Divination with a cat
The easiest and most convenient method for those who have a pet. Ask a question on the evening of Friday the 13th and call the cat. Pay attention to which paw she starts walking towards you. On the right – the answer is “yes”, on the left – “no”.
Divination with mirrors
IMPORTANT: this method of divination is considered the most dangerous. Fortunetellers do not recommend using it for beginners or alone. Despite the consequences that you may have, divination on mirrors is always a 100% true result.
After midnight on Friday the 13th, cover all the windows in the house, remove the tablecloth from the table and place a mirror on it. Take a church candle and draw 13 crosses in the air. Then put this candle between you and the mirror and peer into the reflection for 13 minutes. In the mirror you will see images and figures that will give you the answer to the question. If you didn’t see it, then wrap the mirror with a white cloth and put it under the pillow – the information will come in a dream.
