A Chesterfield County, Va., woman claims county officials have violated her religious rights by defining her as a fortune teller rather than a spiritual counselor.

A hearing in Patricia Moore-King’s lawsuit is set for Thursday in federal court in Richmond.

King claims she has been unable to obtain a business license because of the more stringent standards the county imposes on fortune tellers. For example, only fortune tellers are required get the police chief’s permission to operate after submitting five references.

King says her counseling methods employ Tarot, energy healing, astrology and psychic abilities. But she insists she’s not a fortune teller because she doesn’t predict the future.
