Mediums Go Big

Ever since Apple introduced all of us to Siri, the once lucrative business of clairvoyance has been reeling. Not really. But for most of us it's not much of a stretch. After all, why would we pay a psychic to tell us the meaning of love and life when our smartphone can wax poetic on the very same subjects? And in a statelier voice to boot. Still, plenty of devotees would rather pay up for a chance to have their fortunes told by a medium. Who knows? Maybe the aura advocates know something the rest of us don't. Then again, given their apparent need for psychic intervention, probably not. One uniquely specific prediction is that the Phoenix Psychic Fair will take place on Sunday, June 22, at Phoenix's Crown Plaza Hotel, 2532 West Peoria Avenue, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with $5 general admission. For details, visit, or just ask Siri.

Sun., June 22, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 2014
