We’ve heard from Nostradamus, Baba Vanga, Uri Geller, other psychics, time travelers and futurists on what we can expect to occur in 2022. Now it’s time to learn the predictions of this writer’s favorite psychic -- Jemima Packington, better known as the Asparamancer. We’ll first take a look at how her asparagus fell in 2021 – one thing she didn’t predict is that the world’s only asparamancer would rebrand herself as “Mystic Veg.”
"When I cast the asparagus, it creates patterns and it is the patterns I interpret. I’m able to interpret the patterns left by the asparagus. I am usually about 75-90 per cent accurate with my predictions. I go through my predictions each year and think: 'Yep, that's happened, yep, that's happened.'”
Wales Online has photos of Packington casting her special asparagus – the Bath, England, resident uses only high-quality Worcestershire asparagus grown in the Vale of Evesham, whose fertile location in the flood plain of the River Avon makes it the UK's main supplier of Asparagus officinalis – one of Europe’s favorite vegetables and a popular aphrodisiac. Of course, all the Mystic Veg cares about is its psychic powers.
Well, Packington’s picks for 2021 certainly fell into her “75% accurate” range. She should be good at it – Jemima says she realized she had the gift at age 8 and learned how to read tea leaves from a great aunt … moving on to asparagus when tea and broccoli didn’t work for her.
Like most other psychics, Packington predicts COVID will still be with us in 2022 – she says we’re stuck with it forever – and tense times will continue on the international front. However, she’s different from her competition in that many of her forecasts name names and pick winners – a knack that made her a favorite among bettors in 2019 when she correctly predicted England would win the Cricket World Cup and A Star is Born would win an Oscar.
“I take what I do seriously but I never take myself seriously."
With that refreshing attitude, I predict we will be visiting Asparamancer Jemima Packington – the Mystic Veg – around this time next year.
