Vrăjitoare - Fortune Tellers

Vrăjitoare - Fortune Tellers

Lucia Sekerkova visited the most famous and richest fortune tellers of the Bucharest. One of them was the queen of fortune tellers - Maria Campina - who is known for being hired by the former leader of the Communist Party Nicolae Ceaucescu to help him with his career. Nowadays, it seems to be quite ironic because eventually - he was executed. A fortune teller uses occult and esoteric practices because of arbitrary knowledge of the future or frivolous interpretation of things you want or do not want to hear. Fortune tellers often carry on their profession as a trade. Mostly, you have to pay proper money for their service. In Romania, despite of the fact it is an orthodox Christian country, the phenomenon of occultism is really popular there. She focused on portraits and the interiors of their fancy villas. Those were the places where the acts of divination have been performed.  There is no modesty in their houses that are full of shiny gold. All the fortune tellers consider themselves as the followers of God. They claim that their magic power comes from the Lord. But on the other hand, they also admit using black magic, communication with the Devil, enrichment on the other people's misery. They are dedicated to two completely different things. Is this real faith or did God become only a good marketing tool in their business?
