1910 New Catholic Dictionary
Pretense to know and tell the future. It is a system of deception by which over-curious people are led to believe, or grow apprehensive over, assurances which mimic real prophecy; this form of divination is wrong because it is an inordinate craving to know what Providence has in store for one, and because such knowledge is obtainable only by powers not acting in accordance with Divine Providence. It is one of the commonest impostures.

Il es un systema de deception per excessivemente curiose crede, o deveni apprehensive in re assecurantias que mimica prophetia genuin; iste forma de divination es injuste a causa de iles un desirante excessive a sape le plano que Providence ha pro on, et a causa de tal cognoscentia es obtenibile solmente per poteres que non facer in accordo con Providence Divin. Il es un del communissime fraudulentes.
