Psychic predictions for Baltimore in 2013 [Pictures]
Who knows what 2013 holds in store for Baltimore and some of its most well-known figures? While no one can be absolutely sure, we put our faith in a panel of psychic advisers to tell us what will happen to Michael Phelps, John Waters, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and other Baltimore notables.
Angela Devoti, whose second-sight goes back generations in her family, handled the psychic readings. Farida Shourbaji, a mystic of sorts, looked to the stars to foresee their futures. And Lexie Mountain, whose real name is Lexie Macchi, read their tarot cards. These part-time experts peered into the fog of the future, and reported back with their findings. From the looks of it, 2013 could be as fruitful as 2012 for some of Baltimore's biggest news makers.

Farida Shourbaji: Michael Phelps wakes up from his New Year debauchery to find Father Saturn standing over him with a cup of coffee and that "we need to talk" look. Time to use that gold medal discipline for something other than partying. Oh, and watch those little swimmers -- there will be consequences for any Phelpsian slips. Don't say I didn't warn you!
Lexie Mountain: This year, Baltimoreans are going to have to adjust to a whole new Phelps out of the swimsuit in some new other kind of comparably humorous yet expensive outfit. His success in a non-wet field will be significant, and there may be a positive, soul-reinforcing female influence on the horizon.
Angela Devoti: Baltimore's own Olympian will make a mid-March splash, scuttling about in the 'burbs. In early spring he'll appear (sans consent) on a video uploaded to YouTube, as grainy, scowling figure toting a new pet honey badger. Phelps don't care what you or anyone else thinks about his public persona. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Baltimore.
