While documentation only goes back so far, those with intuitive abilities- such as psychics, mediums and clairvoyants- have been around for as long as anyone can remember.

Psychic Moll Pitcher
Moll Pitcher was a famous fortune teller in the late 18th until early 19th centuries. She is rumored to have come from a family of wizards and made psychic predictions by reading tea leaves. As treasure hunting was a popular activity at the time, the majority of her clients were comprised of treasure hunters looking for riches. While many thought Pitcher was a witch, she narrowly avoided being born in a time where she could have been hung for her talents.
Because she was alive so long ago, there is very little documentation available about her famous predictions. However, we do know that she shocked many with the accuracy of her prediction about George Washington becoming the president.
Every psychic and fortune teller uses their gifts in different ways. Some rely fully on their intuition, while others use insightful tools like tarot cards. While some psychics are born with their abilities, others only attain them after a traumatic event. However, it’s important to remember than not every psychic prediction will be accurate; free will plays a large role in our futures. Even the slightest change in thought or action can alter a predicted chain of events.
