I love psychic fairs. I really do: they’re wonderful. Sort of bizarre bazaars. Aisles of colourful tables manned by people one hasn’t seen in ages—practitioners of a wide array of crafts and arts, dressed to entice or impress. The vibration in the hall from devotees striving to share their particular mantic or healing lore is thrilling, to say the least, tho’ sometimes the psychic hangover is intense. The spectacle can be enchanting. And there is always something to be gained from esoteric cross-pollination: one just might learn a thing or two in the process.
That said, I’ve also grown wise in the ways of what NOT to expect from a psychic fair:
As merchants, we certainly don’t expect to get rich at psychic fairs: but the exposure is priceless. And for the public? One can meet, greet, and bookmark practitioners for later. And that’s always worthwhile.
(Note: I can be found at the Cole Habour Place Psychic and Holistic Fair, February 20-21, 2015. See y’all there!)
Another word about readers and readings: most psychic readings are one-and-done. You plunk down your shekels, you get a snapshot of the here-and-now, which may have reference to the past or future. Astrology is about time. YOUR time.
Astrology is about cycles and phases and transits and progressions. Astrology takes time, because it is ABOUT time: it’s about where you are in your life, what and how that time is. The better you understand and can follow your own patterns, the better informed your choices are, and the more resilient you become when life throws you curves.
A psychic can tell you what’s about to happen; an astrologer can tell you how to handle it. Over time. Your choice.
