Reading omens


"Our sages taught: When the Torah prohibits interpreting omens, that refers to saying:
'My bread fell from my mouth,'
'My walking staff fell from my hand,'
'My son called me from behind me,'
'A deer crossed my path,'
'A snake was on my right and a fox was on my left'
[and therefore I should not proceed]."

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 65b)

Have a great day,
