Hi Alison! Welcome to LessWrong! I'm always happy to see people who are interested in maintaining politeness on here.
I have a friend who is a professional psychic/ magician/ tarot reader, and he is extremely rational (uses cold reading and builds technology stuff for tricks.). I don't think you necessarily have to give the profession up if it's something you enjoy. So long as you don't fall prey to the trap of believing your own schtick.
I would love to hear your story of how you came to change your mind!
Glad to have you here!
