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: In 2012 he shocked everyone (and became even more awesome, if that's possible) by hitchhiking cross country to learn the art of letting go. The new year will see John publishing his book "Carsick" about the experience, which will be a zen-sational success.
Lexie Mountain: The cards predict an inward journey for the King of Trash, a real romance of the moon for the man who thumbs the world with a magic derriere. His partnerships, while they may be pared down from years previous, promise to be as intertwined as the snakes on a medical alert bracelet -- and as zesty and overflowing as the snack chip aisle in a freshly re-stocked Royal Farms.
Angela Devoti: John Waters will be named honorary mayor and will pass a law requiring everyone to walk backward, from sunup to sundown Aug. 17th to Aug. 24th. Local emergency rooms will fill up fast, workplace efficiency will grind to a halt, but crime rates will plummet. You win some, you lose some.
