As New Yorkers, we tend to be hesitant, skeptical…maybe even suspicious. Why is that guy asking for my number? You actually DO have those sale shoes in my size? What's the catch? But, almost paradoxically, when it comes to the big-picture life stuff, we tend to let our hearts lead the way, accepting feeling as fact. That is, when the feeling comes from a top professional in the life-predicting, celestial field. We're talking about life coaches of the other-worldly kind—psychics, astrologers, tarot card and palm readers—who have the ability (we're not questioning how) to offer up insights on all of your burning questions—love, success, health, and, you know, the future.But, let's be honest: Our skeptical hearts know there are a lot of fakes out there. That's why, in order to truly de-mystify the mysticism, we researched the very best of the omniscient bunch—Frank Andrews, Stacey Wolf, and Mark Seltman—who have thousands of trusting clients and decades of experience between them, to find out what's really going on in the most mysterious corners of your life. What we discovered? Not only do these gifted locals know what they're talking about (really!), but with past devotees like Andy Warhol, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Princess Grace of Monaco, and many, many more, it's their fortune-telling as much as their storytelling that's kept us hooked. Now, it's your turn. Suspend your doubts, light a candle, and click through.
