Halacha - clairvoyant
Submitted by dafna  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I would need more details exactly what being a clairvoyant entails, but generally speaking communicating with spirits and supernatural means of determining the future are not permitted for a Jew. While she is technically permitted to continue any practice that it not classified as idolatry until she converts, the Beis Din performing the conversion is likely to look unfavorably on her continuing this profession and seriously question her commitment to Jewish values.
