“I visited a Blackpool palm reader twice eight months apart to see how accurate it was”
A day in Blackpool can be spent in many ways. A donkey ride, a visit to the top of its famous tower or perhaps a fish and chips on the beach, are just a few activities to tick off your list.
Blackpool’s quays and promenade are full of wacky arcades and activity, but it was the palm tree reading rooms that caught the attention of Lancashire Live reporter Rebecca Lockwood, who decided to do two readings at eight months apart and put the predictions to the test. report it Manchester Evening News.
In August last year, Rebecca decided to visit ‘star palmer’ Leanora Petulengro, who has read the palmers of celebrities including boxer Tyson Fury. The family has two reading rooms on the promenade as well as one on Blackpool’s central pier.

“On my last visit, I was only drawn in by the plot,” Rebecca explained. “I had never read my palm before and thought it would be fun. But as you walk away and go on living, you wonder if there was any truth to what you were told.”
Rebecca decided to go back to the reading room a second time and see if what she had been told eight months later would add up. After coughing up a total of £30 for the reading – £10 more than she paid last time – she stretched out both hands in front of her palmist.
Here’s what Rebecca discovered, reports Lancashire Live.
“When I visited last year, my palms told me I had two children, a boy and a girl, and they were coming soon,” Rebecca said. “To my surprise, on my second reading, my palms said the same thing.”
Rebecca admitted she raised an eyebrow in surprise at the prediction and said suggesting two children of both genders was “pretty vague”.
“I was skeptical but surprised,” she said, adding, “I would love to hear my palms tell me I’m having 12 boys. Get more niche, it’s more believable.”
She continued: “Last year I was told my kids were ‘coming soon’ which sounded a lot like a horror movie trailer. A big comfort to me”. When asked what the anxiety could be, Rebecca replied, “I have no idea, I’m not even planning on having kids at the moment” and the reading quickly progressed.
Rebecca didn’t tell her palm reader that she was in a relationship, but her palm reader seemed to know, telling her that her current relationship will “get better and better” and that she will “marry once and it will be for life.”
“I don’t know what my palms did to signal that,” Rebecca explained. “I wasn’t wearing any jewelry that would give an engaged impression, maybe I just have a cute face.
“Last year, Leanora told me that I would marry my current partner and that our marriage would be ‘happy’ and ‘comfortable.’ Seems that palm game fits.”
Rebecca admitted that some of the things she was told “seemed oddly relevant” given how little information she gave to her palm reader. “I can’t stress enough how little information I gave him,” she explained. “I literally told him my current occupation.”
She said she felt “really weird inside” the moment the palm reader told her she had to get away from Lancaster if she wanted to be happy. “Last week I struggled to feel a bit lonely in Lancaster,” Rebecca said. “How did she know that?” She didn’t even indicate which part of my palms was pressing down on my pent up emotions.
She said the palm reader then told her she was worrying too much – but Rebecca admits ‘I don’t think I needed to have paid £30 to come to that conclusion’.
“There are a couple of things that came out of my reading that hadn’t come up before,” Rebecca said. “My palms said again that I would travel a lot and live to a very old age ‘unburdened,’ which made me laugh.”
She said it was even noted a second time that she was “surrounded by jealousy” and more specifically that “a friend of mine is ‘cheating'”. She said the reading made her feel “strangely wary of people now”.
Summing up the experience, Rebecca said: “Of course the observations were vague and I suppose things could be inferred from anyone. For example, if you’re willing to pay £30 to consider your future, you’re probably a little spare cash and cash is something it’s easy to be jealous of.But the last [on moving away] was a little too close to my house. I raised more than an eyebrow – I squinted her in a What do you know way.
“I understood last time that people go to these things because it makes them feel better or gives them hope in a difficult time. I still believe that, but now I’m more suspicious than ever.”
