IT took 30 years for Blue June to embrace her calling as a real-life witch.
Blue, 41, spent decades believing the world of witchcraft was a "bunch of mumbo jumbo" before finally kicking the broom closet door clean off its hinges.
The New Yorker has spent years working in crystal shops in Manhattan and Brooklyn and now works up to six days a week running her own tarot practice.
The former retail worker helps people with the big questions in life – with love and relationships being the top of the agenda for most of her clients – and even hosts her own podcast.
She uses "attraction magic" to bring troubled lovers back together, casts spells on her friends facing court and even uses magic on her own dates.
From a young age, Blue said she always knew she had a unique connection to the spiritual world.
When she was just a tot, she claims to have seen dead children with "trickster energy" wandering past her bedroom door.
She told The Sun Online: "I had psychic visions as a kid and was totally in denial and made fun of it until I was 32, which was 10 years ago.

"I kicked that broom closet door clean off its hinges. I came out with a vengeance. I fully immersed myself in it."
She added: "I saw dead people. I’m still really apprehensive about practising this medium to this day. If I’m here for the living, I don’t need to speak to the dead. It scared me a lot, what I saw. It terrified me.
"At the time, I didn’t know I was a Native American. I just kept seeing an Indian Chief – he would walk past my bedroom, walk right into the linen closet.
"He never looked very nice – I’m realising he was probably an ancestor. He was probably checking in on me. It felt very scary.
"A lot of the spirits I saw didn’t know they were dead. There were little children with trickster energy. Spirits that don’t know they’re dead tend to be very angry."
'I DO SPELLS ALL THE TIME'
The 41-year-old said she casts three to seven spells every week – both on herself and others.
"I just did a spell for a friend who is going through a situation who was on his way to court," she said.
"I do spells all the time – I sometimes do a quick spell when I feel a blockage. I do three to seven spells a week.
"You can just be whispering to yourself and that’s a spell. We don’t cast spells for no reason."
She added: "I’ve done magic on people without their consent and didn’t realise it was toxic at the time.
"My intention was pure, but I would probably make different choices now."
And one area of Blue's craft is "attraction magic".
"I have brought people back together through attraction magic," she said.
"When someone isn’t responding, or ghosting, we do some attraction magic to bring them back.
"From what I’ve seen, it doesn’t go very well. There’s some energies you can manipulate, and some you shouldn't.
"There’s a handful of people who made it, but most people don’t when you do love magic. I’ve never seen it work out long term with other practioners."
Blue said she always waits for the situation to evolve "organically" before getting involved in someone's love life.
"I always do a diagnosis before prescribing magic. I always say we need time for this to happen organically," she said.
I’ve done magic on people without their consent and didn’t realise it was toxic at the time.
"If someone is having a really hard time, sometimes that is want they need. You don’t find success in this work unless you are genuinely interested in helping people.
"I’m really clear with people that outcomes shift over time as we have free will.
"I can only see the outcome depending on what the situation is now. I tell all our clients this is not a perfect science.
"We are asking energies to shift into something else. A lot of times, it’s a shot in the dark. Another reason why magic should not cost a lot – we cannot guarantee anything. It’s not a perfect work."
In her own personal life, Blue said she has been single for eight years – despite casting spells on her potential lovers.
She said: "I barely date and I’m good with that for now. They just keep telling me I have a block, I don’t think I do, but the block must be that I’m perfectly content without someone in my space.
"I don’t want to be alone forever, but I’m kind of OK with that.
"It’s not ideal – you want a support system. If I really want it, maybe I should turn on whatever is turned off inside me.
"As a spell for a date, I would probably write down some intentions on a partition paper and light a pink candle and maybe burn the paper.
"We all have desires and we all have abilities to manifest and transmit energies around us for our own needs and desires."
'I'M HERE FOR SCEPTICS'
Since coming out to the world as a professional witch, Blue said the assumptions people make are "very varied".
"Some are sensible. One of the worst assumptions people make it it’s for the black arts and it’s about curses and the devil," she said.
"There are some witches who do these things, but assuming witches have no sense of ethics is absurd. I felt the same things at some point.
"I’m here for sceptics and I like reading for those people."
But Blue believes most people have experienced the spiritual world – and magic – at some point in their lives.
"Most of us have had these experiences," she said.
"I believe children are very intuitive. There will be people who are more talented. I think everyone had some kind of experience.
"Maybe they didn’t see a spirit – maybe they felt a spirit and smelt it."
She added: "On your birthday, you’re making a wish and blowing out a candle on a cake.
"We do spells in so many ways we don’t even realise.
"People have superstitions – if superstition is involved, and doing something for good luck, there’s probably some spellwork."
