Silly, but nothing much new here. Didn’t Hollywood types always rely on psychics and astrologers?
Perhaps Hollywood’s youngest psychic at 28, John, who often travels to L.A. from his NYC home base, may also be among the most in-demand. He does as many as eight readings a day (at slightly less than $200 an hour) and is booked at least six months in advance. “I’ve been to many mediums,” actress Jenny McCarthy tells THR. “Thomas is by far the most accurate one. Spot on!”
HAHAHA. Excuse me for that outburst. Like anyone would trust what Jenny says…
But it seems that many are using psychic advisors for business transactions.
What a difference a recession makes. Last we looked into our crystal balls, Hollywood regarded psychics the way it does reality shows: entertaining, over the top and even necessary, but not a lot of truth or importance to them.
These psychic advisors work long hours and have to deal with demanding people.
They still often are surrounded by people in highly insecure, grumbly or even depressive states. “We tend to be spiritually evolved people,” says Cardelucci. “But let me tell you, honey: Nobody goes to a psychic when they’re happy.”
This is not actually surprising. These high-end clients want a trusted person to bounce ideas off of who do not have a stake in the outcome. They seem to be looking for someone to tell them which decision is OK. And in most cases, the decision will come out OK. That will give the client confidence and will result in praise for the psychic as “spot on”. Not really. It’s just you…
Notice they are calling themselves “intuitive counselors”, “empathic counselors”, “a coach, an intuitive business strategist”. Nice bit of rebranding there… for $200-400 an hour.
While the basis for this service is nonsense (there is no such thing as clairvoyance or ‘reading souls’, yadayadayada), the people are providing a service for their clients who are willing to pay for it. Whatever floats your boat.
