Had a fantastic and accurate palm reading with a very empathic psychic. Amazing at her job but I wish I remembered her name:(

I had a reading with Shalomar during my visit to Omen. She was warm, inviting, and very insightful. I left the reading with a lot to think about and with a renewed sense of self and hope for a brighter future.

Have had multiple readings with Nickolas in person and by phone. He is always on point and has very clear insight to what was asked and even things I didn't think of asking but he saw. Excellent!!

Andrea B. It's generally not a long wait for a reading but I was told once October hits that if you'd like a reading you should definitely book in advance. Spots fill very quickly there!
