If this is all for fun, I would say that the three best ways to do a fortune-telling booth would be with tarot cards, crystal ball, or palm-reading.
With tarot, you get special cards that you turn over, and each card is supposed to have special meaning when turned over for a question asked. Cards facing the right way are positive, while cards facing the opposite way (upside down for you) are negative or conflict cards. The simplest reading is three cards, representing past, present, and future. You can find the meanings of each card online, or some tarot card decks actually give you a description of the cards’ meanings.
A crystal ball method, you basically are asking the person to stare into the ball and focus with you, and the energy is supposed to come through for you to see and interpret. You then can “read” the person and give them an answer to a question, but it should not be a simple yes or no. Most crystal ball readers try to leave things a bit vague. Much like a horoscope in the newspaper, you leave something for the person getting the reading to interpret themselves.
Finally, with palm reading, you want to learn to interpret the lines on someone’s hands and give some responses based on them. For example, a prominent life line can mean a long life, while one that seems to interrupted at some point can suggest health problems.
If you are doing this to raise funds for the school, you might want to use one of these methods for your fortune telling booth:
Try the crystal ball method, selling small crystals or polished lucky rocks to people after a reading. A dollar store may have small crystals or rocks that you can sell for $ 2 at the booth.
Perhaps you can sell special fortune candles. Buy dollar store scented (or unscented) candles of varying colors. Each would have a different purpose…money, fame, power, health, luck, inner peace, etc.
If you know a woodworker in the family, you could have them create small wooden chips (like Scrabble letters) with a strange symbol on them. These could be “runes” that ward off evil spirits or bring good fortune. Put a hole in them and attach a shoe string or bit of leather and you have an interesting necklace or bracelet people may wear for years after culture night.
Buy loose tea leaves from a local tea shop, and sell them in individual packets for reading tea leaves. You tell them to buy the tea, tell them how they must drink the tea in a certain way (such as always taking a sip from a different corner of the cup until the tea is finished). Then you give them instructions for reading the leaves. Are they a circle in the bottom of the cup? Long life! Are they all in a pile in the center? Good fortune! Are they tilted all to one side? Right side of the handle means things will look up in the future. Left side means something bad may soon happen. That sort of thing.
Just be sure that people know it’s all in good fun and not to take it too seriously. Unless you are a descendant of a true gypsy fortune teller and actually believe you have psychic powers, what you are selling here is just a fun experience. Nothing more.

tarrot and palm reading
Answer by HappilyPagan
palmistry is good, tea leaf reading is cheap and if the person interprets their own its their subconscious telling the truth.

does horoscope compatibility really seem to have anything to do with relationship success?
i’m a female taurus…weirdly enough, i fit the typical taurus profile. i never really looked into horoscopes, but out of curiosity, checked a few things out. my exes are a taurus and a libra… what is a good match for a taurus? is it coincidence? i’m a homebody and my libra ex loved to party…we clashed on that…

No it doesn’t, and if you read those horoscopes in the Newspaper or online, you will see there is always a disclaimer, stating these are just basically for your entertainment. Not to be taken seriously.
Yes this was big in the Sixties of the last Century and still hangs around, for those silly enough to be taken in by them.
So don’t walk around like some 60’s Hippy, or Flower Child, just back from WoodStock, and ask people their sign.
Just take people as you find them, some you will like, or love, while others you won’t.
People’s personality, are not formed by the stars, and those Sign Characteristics, fit almost anyone, they are so general in nature.
