If a black cat crosses your path, do you worry for days on end for what catastrophe might befall you?
If a Feng Shui master tells you that in order to attract wealth and happiness the main door of your house should face East, rather than South, the direction it currently is facing, do you quickly get a contractor to shift your thick oak door to face East? (Mind you this is not a permanent solution as later in the year, or a couple of years down the road, the same or another master would tell you that your front door should in fact face North!).
If in the West the number 13 is considered unlucky, number 4 or 44 is a no-no in this part of the world. So we have houses and apartments numbering 41, 42, 43, then suddenly 43A, or 45, with number 44 nowhere to be seen.
There have been reported cases where a husband or wife left the family and home because some fortune teller told them it was not safe to stay home.
And some will not make any business or other decisions without consulting their fortune tellers first. These poor souls (who are both naive and gullible) will be very bold with their ventures if told that lots of $$$$$$$$ are coming.
It is no exaggeration to say that some people actually treat their Feng Shui masters or fortune tellers like god.
So how superstitious are you?
