Seers’ Gala: Don’t go into 2000 without it

October 17, 2015

Just in case your were ‘knee high to a grasshopper’ or ‘a glint in someone’s eye’ or are starting to have those memory loss ‘moments’, I want to remind you that the months leading up to the beginning of the 21 century were fraught with predictions that the entire computer/internet system was going to crash.

I do not think, though, that this was the reason that a seers’ gala was planned for the turn over into our present century. It was probably more likely because that psychics should throw a party in which they make predictions just seems to be the thing to do when one millennium fades out and another fades in.

For me, personally, it was a chance to meld my two passions together. I wrote an article to publicize the event and I did tea leaf readings at it. Here it is:

Seers’ Gala: Don’t go into 2000 without it

by Tanya Lester

Seeing as you weren’t around for the last millennium (not in your present life form anyway), how can you expect to know about crossing over into the new millennium?

Seers’ guidance is what you need and in a place like Salt Spring Island, no matter where your path is taking you on life’s Journey, chances are good there’s a fantastic futurist waiting for you behind any rock on the road.

Yet for something as significant as heading into the next century, you need to “feast” at the table of more than one of these psychic sisters and brothers.

“We welcome everyone to come in and consult the oracles,” said Treasured Spirit hostess Catherine Lily-Hooper, referring to the Millennium Eve Seer’s Gala.

A “smorgasbord” of predictions awaits you next Thursday and Friday at the metaphysical  books and gifts shop on Hereford Avenue.

For $10 you will be issued a passport into the new millennium as envisioned by two tarot card readers, a tea cup reader (c’est moi) and an astrologer.

“It’s just a taste,” said Treasured Spirit owner Susan Cassidy. “It’s going to be fun. It’s not going to be heavy.”

According to Cassidy, the readings will be “quickies” and anyone who wants more can book a longer reading for a later date.

Included in the $10 “quickies” will be a look at your animal totem with tarot card reader Glenda Petersen; a focus on one card from tarot card reader Aylwin’s deck; a short spearmint or tea leaf image interpretation from me; a planetary glimpse from an astrologer.

Everyone will receive a cup of hot cranberry juice sprinkled with spearmint leaves and a “seer sucker.”

Then, your completed $10 seers’ passport will be entered in a draw to win a longer reading with your favourite seer.

The seers, as well as Cassidy and Lily-Hooper, will be dressed in finery fit for the awesome oracles that they all are…
