Unlock the secrets of your future
The Fortune Teller Shop in Erskineville
Do you want to learn a wicked new party trick by discovering the art of fortune telling? Or maybe you'd like to get very serious about it and learn how to give insight into someone's puzzled life situation? I have spent an hour learning how to use Gypsy cards with Paris Debono at his treasure-filled boutique shop at Erskineville, and I can tell you, this is one skill that can prove to be a lot of fun.
Paris Debono and his Fortune Teller Shop
The Fortune Teller Paris Debono
Paris Debono is the owner of the well-established Fortune Teller Shop at Erskineville. He is an artist turned professional psychic reader, inspired by the James Bond Girl, Solitaire in Live or Let Die. He has more than 20 years of experience in astrology, tarot, palmistry and Gypsy cards, as well as other forms of divination. He is also a popular astrology writer for many magazines in Australia and Europe.
The shop is filled with holistic artswork
Paris has two fortune telling shops, the second being in Darlinghurst. I had my class at the one in Erskineville. When you enter his shop, you will be amazed at all the treasures, talismans and holistic artworks that he has collected over the years. His shop is located only 5 minutes walking distance from the Erskineville train station and about 15 minutes from Newtown train station. The shop opens seven days a week from 9am till late.
Sometimes, Paris hosts the Tarot Reading Tea Party at his shop and the invitations are sent to the clients who have joined on his Facebook page. If you host a party at your home and want to find a fortune teller, you can call Paris, as he can allocate a fortune teller to come to your home and entertain your guests.
The Gypsy Love Cards: Finding 'The One'
The Gypsy Love Cards
The Gypsy love cards are a set of cards that are designed to unlock the secrets of your love life and help you find 'the one'. At the beginning of the class, you will be given a blank booklet to write your notes in and a set of cards to use during the class. The cards have four colour themes: purple, red, yellow and green. Purple is related to spiritual life, green is related to hope and opportunity, yellow is related to wealth and career, and red is related to love and romance.
There are 12 cards in total per set and each one represents a month of the year. For a man who wants to find out about his love life, he will be represented by the card with a figure of a handsome man, while his love or potential partner will be the red heart. For the lady, the symbol is vice versa. The participant needs to think of a particular person in mind, maybe a love potential while he/she is shuffling the cards. After that, the fortune teller will lay out and cards in a particular order and open the cards to reveal their secrets.
It is a very easy to follow and fun class. Once you finish the class, you will receive a set of Gypsy love cards and a little booklet to take home for more practice, as well as a certificate of level one exclusively designed by the Fortune Teller.
The advanced class
This beginner's class package is $50 per person. If you are interested in further polishing your skills, you can also purchase the intermediate package ($80) or the advanced package ($240). You can book your class online at www.thefortuneteller.com.au
Now when I take the cards with me on a trip or to a party, I am always surrounded by people who are really curious about their love lives, especially my girlfriends. I have made a lot of friends by telling fortunes, had a lot of fun doing it - and I foresee that you will too.
