Whether you're a believer or not, the weird and wonderful world of astrology is big business.
Celebrity psychic Michele Knight has been making predictions about the stars for decades.
She's appeared on X Factor Extra as their resident psychic, written a best seller and set up her own psychic social networking site.
More recently, Michele made a very big prediction about X Factor star, Leona Lewis. Want to find out what? Read on...
Lauren: Hi Michele. You recently made a big prediction on your website about Leona Lewis. Tell me a little more about it?
Michele: I did four or five series of X Factor Extra, as their resident astrologer. The last one I did I predicted Leona would win and I wrote various predictions - all of which happened.
I predicted that she’d be big in America and the last one to come true was that she’d duet with Justin Timberlake. I put the prediction on my website back when she won and it’s been there all these years. That was a particularly good prediction, but you don’t always get it that specific.
Lauren: What kick started your psychic career?
Michele: My mother was a psychic so I grew up with it.But you don’t always want to do what your mother did, do you? Not when your mother’s name is Madame Bruna, my goodness!
I ended up doing it professionally from the age of 16. My autobiography, which is a Sunday Times best seller, talks about my abused childhood, but I was very protected all the way along. I’ve had so many weird coincidences in my life that have led me to where I am - which is very happy and fulfilled.
Lauren: Where did you grow up?
Michele: I was born in London but I live in Somerset now, although I’m just about to move to Devon.
I’ve got a double life - I chill out in London but I prefer living in the countryside. I have a very blessed life.
I have a son who’s 23 but I’m now married to a woman. I got married last year and she’s my soul mate. Married life is marvellous.
Lauren: How often do you tell people something they’d rather not hear?
Michele: I like to think of myself as a 21st century psychic.
I like to empower people but I’m very direct and very specific.
And very honest! If someone was going to drop dead the next week you wouldn’t put it in those terms.
I’ve got my own social networking site called Psychic Knight - it’s like Facebook for the soul.
We’ve got nearly 11,000 members now.
You can have your own page on there - it’s a mixture of Myspace and Facebook, but it’s got a lot of spiritual things on there.
One of my passions is also helping other people to achieve their dreams.
Lauren: What’s been the highlight of your career?
Michele: If I told you you wouldn’t believe me to be honest.
There’s been so many amazing, miraculous things that have happened.
I’ve ended up doing a lot of music business stuff as a psychic - one of my first jobs was working at the Roof Gardens in London, as a psychic with Richard Branson.
I gave him and Mike Oldfield a reading - the day they mended their Tubular Bells feud.
Peter Andre also, I did his album release, back in the day.
I always knew he’d make a comeback.
I also did their [Katie Price and Peter’s]baby shower on ITV2. All these things are always around the music business for some reason.
My biggest passion is actually being an inspiration to people who’ve been abused or had an unhappy childhood - you can actually have a happy life, you can be healed.
Lauren: Who’s the nicest celebrity you’ve met?
Michele: Anne Robinson. She gave me a quote for my book, she was lovely.
Also, what I liked about Sharon Osbourne was she was very kind to the people in the audience [on X Factor].
She walked up two flights of stairs to talk to some kids who were in my dressing room.
Most of the people of that calibre you’d be pleased if you could walk down to them to meet them. Simon Cowell is always happy, too. I love his energy, he radiates a goodness.
Lauren: When did you discover your gift as a psychic?
Michele: It was always with me. I was even reading kids’ palms at primary school.
My twin sister died at birth - she was always around me.There was this voice that was always guiding me, saving me at the last minute. I’ve had an interesting life, long may it continue [laughs].
Lauren: Finally, is there anything you can tell me (off the cuff) about me?
Michele: Hold on a minute, I’ll have a look at your astrological chart.
You have the ability to have quite tricky relationships, something really deep and intense, with lots of secrets.
I’m sure you’ve got a lot of male friends -you can be one of the lads when you want to be.You keep a lot back, though. Only certain people see all those sides to you.You’re very determined to make some changes and do big things. You can achieve things as fast as you want to, you’re on the right track anyway.
I think you’ll travel - I think that’s important. By the age of 28 you’ll get offered a job in London or another big city. There’ll be a big music connection in America too!
