Seriously. I have never in my life seen a cockroach, but you might have. If you have, then you can use them for divination.
This is supposed to be done between Christmas and New Year.
Find a cockroach, either in your own home or somewhere else.
Look at it. (Be kind, they are innocent animals and shouldn't be harmed. Just being captured is stressful enough.)
If it's vigorous and healthy, all is well
If it's black, you will be promoted
If it's red, a blonde or a redhead is in love with you
If it's green, it means a lot of money
If it's blue - go to bed and sleep
If it moves the antennae all the time, you will have an energetic year ahead of you
If it is still, you will spend a lot of time at home
If it looks surprised, people ignore you
If it is scared, you are an intimidating person
Measure the cockroach.
If it's less than 1 cm, you have a good family life
If it's more than 3 cm, you are an adventurer
Compare the length of the antennae to your nose. If they are shorter than your nose, you are quite content with your life. If they are longer, you are curious and want to know more
If one of the antennae is shorter than the other, you haven't yet realized your capacity.
If the total length of the antennae is equal to the length of its body multiplied by the square root of its diameter - you need to stop measuring the poor creature.
If the legs of the cockroach are evenly distributed throughout its body, you need to see a psychiatrist.
If the length of the cockroach is equal to its width, it's not a cockroach.
Now, let it go.
If it runs straight, you have a straight road ahead.
If it runs to the left, you are to meet an exciting person
If it runs to the right, take the job
If it runs to you, someone is on their way to your life
If it doesn't run, its dead.
