Saturday (Oct. 1), 11am-4pm, Lotus Heart Gifts at Temple of Peace (575 Haiku Rd.); free
Every time I’ve tried to attend a Psychic Fair (held every first Saturday), unforeseen circumstances get in my way. A catch-22 in eternal return, I can’t manage to get to the fair to buy the crystal ball that will alert me to what’s preventing me from getting there in the first place! At least, if I manage to make it to the Psychic Fair this go-around, I need no prophetic word to tell me that I’ll save 20 percent on said crystal ball (or whatever else) at Lotus Heart Gifts’ one day-only pre-holiday sale. And if all I spy (with or without my third eye) is my ugly mug fish-eyed in the reflection, the fair’s main attraction is its “Angel, Astrology, and Tarot readings by Maui’s premier Intuitives” who provide “valuable insights and inspiration.” Not to mention that other offerings include refreshments, live entertainment, chair massage and Reiki… OK, look. I gotta be frank: no matter my earnest efforts, my regular spiritual resolve is a robust disbelief in almost everything but hard science–but I still love stuff like the Psychic Fair. Why? Even a skeptic like me (though I prefer the description “rational”) can readily enjoy how psychic readings speak to universal human conditions, and I find that the associations that naturally come to mind when suggestions are proffered oft speak to what’s bubbling within. How fun! Never mind it all takes place in Haiku, a delightful direction which merits a leisurely drive whether or not you have a destination. For more information on the Psychic Fair, call 575-5220.
