The occurrence of fortune-telling is directly related to the desire of people to learn some facts from their future, past or present. In all ages, people have tried to find out their future. This is directly related to the occurrence of any circumstances of life, which fortune telling can help to solve (as many think).
Fortune telling with a needle and thread is one of the most common types of predictions. There is no exact date for the appearance of this type of magic rite, which is more common among gypsies. In past times, for this unusual nation, the use of various predictions and magic was considered a matter of everyday life, a means of livelihood, and not something supernatural. Do not forget the fact that the gypsies rather carefully carry out this ritual, since they believe that it is the thread that is the link between the real world and otherworldly forces. To carry out the process of fortune-telling, gypsies prefer to use new needles, into which they sew a red silk thread during the ceremony. Although at present, in this rite, the girls do not focus on the color of the thread used.
Fortune telling with a needle can be carried out in various ways, for example, fortune telling with a needle with a circle. In the process of fortunetelling, you can use round cardboard (in this case, the diameter may coincide with the diameter of an ordinary plate). On this circle it is necessary to write letters that can be arranged both in order and in a chaotic sequence. Then the needle is suspended on a thread and the question of interest is asked. But we should not forget that at the very beginning of fortune-telling it is necessary to say a number of certain phrases. For example, “Such a spirit, answer us questions that interest us and help us find a solution to certain issues !!!” etc. It is also believed that before the beginning of fortune telling, girls should remove all jewelry and loose their hair.
Fortune telling with a needle and thread can be carried out with the help of a circle without letters, divided into two equal honor. These parts can symbolize the answers "yes - no", "loves - does not love." In the process of such fortune-telling, it is necessary to clearly formulate the questions of interest, the possible answers to which are depicted on the circle. But in order to verify the veracity of this method, for starters it is advisable to ask questions, the answers to which are already known. If the answers of a fortunetelling girl coincide with the answers indicated by a needle with a thread, fortunetelling is indeed true and you can continue the process and ask questions of interest.
Fortune telling with a needle and thread at this time causes a lot of controversial opinions. Some consider this ritual an entertaining game, others take it very seriously. For many girls who used this kind of magic, predictions came true (for example, wedding day, name of the future husband, gender of the unborn child). For some girls, the answers received during the ceremony were only partially realized, while for some, none of the answers matched the real one.
In conclusion, it is necessary to note the fact that the theory that the needle movement in the process of fortune telling does not depend on the spirits that are called up during the ritual (as many people think), but on the thoughts of the girl who conducts fortune telling with needle and thread. Here we have in mind the fact that during fortune-telling there is a process of complete concentration of thoughts and consciousness, as a result of which the movement of the thread and, accordingly, the needle by certain letters is observed. It is in this case that the girl gets the desired result, which subsequently becomes a reality.
