The most interaction many VCU students have had with witchcraft is watching the TV drama American Horror Story’s third season, called “Coven.”
The stigma of fortune telling has created an abundance of misconceptions for years that have unfortunately never truly been clarified. Divination, also known as fortune telling, follows its own unique code and language of symbols. Therefore, it is its own art form. Because divination is considered to be a taboo subject most of the false claims about this ancient method of intuitively understanding the present moment, as well as the past and future, are that it originated from witchcraft and devil worship. Contrary to popular belief, fortune telling did not become what it is today by the brew and bubbles of a cauldron or the sacrificial ceremonies conducted around a satanic pentagram.
