Fortune telling in Dutch/Flemish culture

Just curious if the culture is more dependent on horoscopes, tarot cards, numerology etc? What's the Dutch attitude on such practices?

Most people are very sceptical about these things or simply consider them to be nonsense. Of course, there is always a (small) group of believers, and that's also the case in Dutch culture.
