SATURDAY & SUNDAY
My grandmother was a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter. These people have been known throughout history to have special powers and psychic abilities—which my grandmother, in her stilted English, always called “physic abilities.” But her uncanny ways spoke louder than words, and I wish she were still around to teach them to me. Fortunately, there are alternatives. At Yesterday’s Memories’ monthly Psychic Fairs, various New Age service providers and readers are on hand to help give insight to nonpsychics and those who have not yet explored and developed their own abilities. At this weekend’s fair, you can discover your true personality through an aura photograph taken by Ingrid Jolley-Trayfors. Are you a passionate, strong red, a nurturing compassionate green, or a calm, loyal blue? You can also get a glimpse of your future with palm readings by Ron, complete astrology charts by Shawn, playing-card readings by Marcie (who’s been doing them since the ’50s), and tarot readings by Sherry Sherry. Find out if the Tower (sudden and drastic change), the Page of Pentacles (security and wealth), or the World (fulfillment and perfection) awaits you. Don’t be a Fool (spontaneity and folly) and miss your chance for awakening. From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29, at Yesterday’s Memories, 25 S. King St., Leesburg. Free. (703) 777-4642. (Liz Eckstein)
