The solar eclipse is expected to last just a few minutes, but will that brief interaction between the sun and moon change the energy enough when it comes to telling your future?
"It will make a difference for me in readings if the person I'm reading feels like it will make a difference," said Melinda Vail, a professional medium in Tempe.
She's been doing it for 25 years. Vail says she can talk to the other side but when it comes to the eclipse actually changing things for you, she says it depends on your state of mind.

"If somebody believes that it's going to affect you it will affect you. If you believe that it's a passing phenomenon of interest and that it's not going to affect you energetically then it won't affect you energetically — at least in a way that you might recognize," she explained.
Vail says she's heard a lot about this eclipse being a precursor for the end of times.
"Even though I'm able to talk to the other side, even though I'm able to give people information — predict the future for individuals, I'm not sure any one of us can actually predict the future in the world," said Vail. "I'm not sure we're supposed to. I'm not sure we're allowed to."
