Parroting Predictions

The man and the parrot, partners from a time lost, together chart the trajectory of passerby's future. This ancient art of parrot astrology originates from South India, but has made its way into the almost the entirety of South Asia and some parts in the west. Remnants of the past, tasked with predicting the future using tarot cards, parrot astrologers have dwindled in numbers but the sight of them still evokes fond memories. It is believed that ancient Indians found and fostered a connection with nature, a relic of which are these astrologers. They can still be found in around Mirpur, Farmgate and other areas, selling futures for Tk 10. For this small charge, the parrot will tell you what the future holds for you. Parrot astrologers were also often used before making important decisions or finding auspicious dates for weddings.
