Long Wang Fortune Telling
Popularized in Sumaru City by Wang Long Chizuru, Wang Long Fortunetelling revolves around the twelve Dragon Kings of Taoist and Chinese mythology. Each King protects one of the months of the year, bestowing their qualities and protection on anyone born in their respective month. Certain dragons synergize well with some dragons... and just don't get along at all with others, making it popular for match-making fortunes.
In many respects it's quite similar to the Western Zodiac and horoscopes, at least in how it's applied to everyday life.

According to some traditions, there is a thirteenth Dragon King, or, perhaps, Dragon Queen. Called Joka, this dragon does not rule over any month; instead, when she shows up in someone's fortune, it's to bring bad luck into their life. There's not much someone can do if they've ended up with a Joka influence. They'll just have to tough it out until it passes.
