Future’s clear at psychic fair
PALMISTRY, clairvoyance, tarot readings, channelling, numerology and astrology were just some of the offerings over the weekend at the Nimbin Psychic Fair.
A desire to help people was the common cause joining the eclectic group of psychics who took up residence in the Nimbin School of Arts Hall.
Sunder Devi has been a clairvoyant for 50 years and was first aware of her gift when she was only six years old.
She was guided by her grandmother who was a medium in the "spiritualist church", she said.
Among other things, Sunder has spent 20 years overseas studying the practices of shamanism.
"It can take this long to master one ceremony," she said.
Psychics helped people to get a better perspective, and make the most of the opportunities that life throws up, Nimbin-based Kim Tarot said.
A good reader could also help people find the path that they "were not aware of yet.
"We give love, light and peace," Kim said.
There was also a lot of satisfaction that comes with being a psychic.
"People arrive in misery with no direction, but go away with clarity," she said.
Michelle Currie, a traveller from Canada, was in Nimbin for just a few days but was looking forward to her appointment with palm reader Ian Cameron.
To see so many psychics in the one place was something you didn't see all that often, she said.
"It is a unique opportunity.
"I want a clearer path, more direction in my life."
The fair has been run several times in the past and, if all goes well, could become a regular event for Nimbin, organiser and clairvoyant Jazmin Theodora said.
"It is a lovely thing to do. We are going to start doing them every four months," she said.
"We go by the full moon."
The moon is in Scorpio at the moment, marking a good time to follow desires, Jazmin said.
But she also warned, you have to be very clear in what it is exactly that you want.
