I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur when it comes to psychics. In fact, I myself was blessed with the ""gift."" However, I must say that this woman is a complete FRAUD.
Allow me to briefly recap my experience. When my friend and I walk in, Sylivia [sic] is wearing a teal onesie, sporting extensive facial hair. She then proceeds to hastily and incoherently explain the prices and descriptions of her menu of readings (her tarrot [sic] reading is apparently the most valuable, at a ludicrous $100). Her ""living room"" boasts various ceramic angels, newly purchased toilet paper, a Diet Coke can, and a motorized scooter.
(S)he took me into a sketchy small closet blocked off with a curtain, gripped my hand, and proceeded to tell me the most generic statements about my life that still managed to be blatantly false. However, Sylivia still reiterated four separate times not to tell ANYONE about my reading, or else my two wishes would not come true. Unfortunately, I broke this rule and my friend and I exchanged readings. To our surprise and dismay, we received identical guidance from this gifted clairvoyant.
Let me save you $50, since the following is apparently what she tells literally everyone:
1. You take 2 steps forward, and 3 steps backward.
2. You have trouble sleeping at night.
3. There is a dark aura surrounding you.
4. People are jealous of you.
5. Money is coming your way.
6. Long, happy life.
7. Do you want me to light a healing candle for you? Oh, it costs money.
I can't even tell you how disconcerting the entire experience was. I almost peed my pants because I was too afraid to ask to use the restroom in her filthy home/psychic lair.
The woman took $50 of my money for five minutes of BS and then coerced me into giving her an additional tip of $15 which I paid because I can't say no to fat women with mustaches.
