Canberra Psychics?

sunshine 20 May 2009 54

Okay – thought i’d give everyone a laugh but does anyone know of any accurate, good psychics/tarot readers in Canberra?

I’ve seen Milton Black in the past and WOW spot on, but he’s a bit expensive now – think it’s about $270.

A work colleague went to a lady named Marie in Kingston and said she was amazingly correct – eerily so. never heard of her, have you?

It’s just a bit of fun that a few friends have expressed interest in doing.

[ED – As usual, it’s also worth consulting South Park]

but if a psychic can predict the time and date of your death, accurately,

They can’t though.

If you want mystery in your life just ponder why some people are still on the road given their pathetic driving skills.

the thing to point out is that the astrological predictions in the paper are aimed at a broad audience. The personal astrological prediction relies on key dates and times in your past, to be far more accurate. It is seen by me as a bit of fun. If Milton is on the money, that is a bonus as well.

So do you believe that the course of your life is already predetermined? You say it is a bit of fun but personal astrological predictions can be somewhat accurate. How can they be a bonus unless you actually make decisions based on them?

Some people hand the general course of their lives over to these people, sometimes to the extent of making specific decisions. I prefer to direct my own life.

I do too. no fate but what we make. destiny and predetermined future outcomes are all well and good, but if a psychic can predict the time and date of your death, accurately, why would you bother to work hard and raise a family. some things need to be a mystery.

and vy, always thought psychologers was an arcane art. something a psychologist did.

No, they would be called psychologers.

woody, as I keep saying, it is all done for a bit of a fun birthday present. Milton black is pretty good at what he does, and his predictions have been fairly accurate. I know what he requires for a personal reading, as the star charts at your day / time and year of birth are specific – maybe it is a sham, or not, i don’t know. Astrologers are not psychics. if they were, they would be called psychics.

More to the point, why arent they all lining up for this:

(start appropriate time/psychic paradox music.)
Maybe because they really can see the future, and therefore know they won’t win the prize. Or better yet, they know they won’t enter the contest, so for that reason, they don’t.

It appears that hundreds have lined up to try and fluke the million dollars. I suppose some of them are confident frauds, others delusional.

Pick me . . .

You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. At times you have serious doubts whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.

Gosh, we have a psychic who could have told some parents of local P platers not to let their kids drive on a particular night, and several people would be alive and healthy today who are now dead or seriously injured.

A psychic who could have prevented the murders of recent years, or even told a guy not to go drunk with a sandbag to a certain bar because he’d get stabbed to death, but instead of making huge changes in the lives of people and their relatives they’re pissing away their skills predicting twins.

I’m so underwhelmed.

I like how sometimes one of the trashy current affairs programs does a story on psychics ripping off the public, and there’s the inevitable line of “if you’re so psychic, why didn’t you know we were coming…?”

Totally agree Skid.

If you read through the newspaper astrological predictions you can find a case for pretty much all of them applying to yourself.

Autosuggestion is also a big factor.

1) Throw enough mud at a wall, and some of it will stick, especially if it is what your recipient _wants to hear_.
2) The probability of a theoretical event is altered by the action of making a prediction of that event, through the desires, context, motivations, and connections of the listener\s and the predictor.

Also, see cold reading and comfirmation bias above.

PS: I will take your money and tell you tales of possible events that may occur in -a- future.

Although I don’t believe in psychics, I don’t discount it.

I have a friend who used to work on a Sydney radio station (many, many years ago) doing the astrology stuff. I was talking to her one day about it and bagging her out for lying to these susceptable, lonely and insecure people when she said that yes, she did make it up, but not all of it, as sometimes she really did see the future.

I have no real opinion on whether or not this was true, but it was interesting all the same.

If people want to see a psychic then so be it. It could be a laugh 😉

milton usually gets it right. every reading i have had has had an eerie accuracy.

There was a woman who read the cards upstairs from caphs, in manuka, she was very good and very accurate.

I get a reading once a year from milton for my birthday present. it is a bit of fun, but the prediction that my second child would actually be twins – months before the ivf cycle, was uncanny.
