App-based psychics may be the only people who are doing well in the gig economy
In high school, my friends and I went through a phase. Not a punk one, not a posting "deep" lyrics in our away messages one, but a psychic one. It was the mid-aughts in the Midwest, we had pink razor phones, and we wanted to know if there was actually anything to look forward to other than the annual summer fest. Would we ever move out of the Chicago suburbs? The answers to our questions felt so important to us, but beyond our reach. So the best way to get them was to consult the new psychic whose sign we passed a few times in a town nearby. We were also bored.

I remember the first summer night we visited her. We called ahead to make an appointment and told her it was going to be a group of four of us who all wanted readings. She said it would cost around $45 a person, which for high schoolers, was a lot. I felt nervous as we drove up to her office that was part of a manicured suburban strip mall. On the outside, her parlor looked like everything else in our corner of the world. Inside a bead curtain divided the anteroom from her divining space, decorated with oversized amethyst crystals. The rooms smelled of sage and sandalwood.
