Meet the psychic that big-money Wall Street traders depend on
When it comes to playing the stock market, buttoned-up bankers are turning to a new form of market analysis before hedging their bets: A New York City tarot-card reader.
Psychic Hae Jun “HeyJune” Jeon is being tapped by dozens of big-money players in finance and tech for advice on how to invest.
“I’ve had many instances where I’ve told traders, ‘Be more open-minded today’ because I pulled a Capricorn card, which means big business, or a chariot card, which means getting lucky,” Jeon told The Post. “Then they put in a trade that they normally wouldn’t have — and made bank.”
The phenomena have happened “a lot” since she began sessions with clients at investment banks more than six years ago, Jeon said. (Although The Post was able to verify she has worked with several major financial firms, all asked that names be withheld because of liability reasons.)
But sometimes the predictions are warnings.
“I told a VC [venture capital] investor that he was going to experience a financial loss soon, and within a few weeks one of his portfolio companies went belly up,” she said. “I pulled an eight of swords, which shows a woman blindfolded with swords around her and . . . signifies loss. This card came up in the ‘past’ position which means he had already made the decision, but he didn’t know it was a bad idea.”
One client, who worked on Wall Street and is now in tech, has been meeting with Jeon, 30, for advice over the last three years.
“There was a time where she saw me working for a man [even though] I had a female manager at the time,” said the client. “She said, ‘By September you’ll have a new manager’ and, lo and behold, I got a new job and my manager was a man.”
“I told a VC [venture capital] investor that he was going to experience a financial loss soon, and within a few weeks one of his portfolio companies went belly up.”
The crystal ball wasn’t always so clear for Jeon herself, who prefers to be called an energy reader.
Before she became a full-time intuitive, the Upper West Sider worked on Wall Street as a strategist and data analyst for JP Morgan and, later, at a private hedge fund. She gave readings to friends on the side, but never considered it a career.
“I thought I could just have two lives at the same time,” said Jeon, who was born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in Berlin, Germany.
She started reading tarot cards when she was 19, and has sensed her intuitive abilities since she was a child. “When I was 5, I told my mom, ‘I think there’s a language that everybody speaks, but it’s not verbal,’ ” she said.
In the spring of 2019, Jeon, who is single, finally realized she needed to step away from her six-figure job.
“I had an ‘aha moment’ when I was talking to a CEO,” she said. “His life was not where he wanted it to be.
“I got a vision of him swimming in dark water and I told him, ‘Hey, did you ever consider going swimming out in the ocean at nighttime?’ He got spooked, like, ‘How did you know that that is one of my secret passions?’ It turned out he likes to go on lavish trips in the tropics and go swimming at night as a form of meditation.”
That was the assurance she needed to launch her full-time practice, called Pheydrus, where individual rates start at $225. Though she usually conducts readings in the board room, she’ll meet with clients at bars, restaurants or their homes.
She has also been hired by publications including Allure, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, and startups like MSCHF, an offbeat brand that specializes in viral stunts, to conduct workshops with employees.
But when it comes to Wall Streeters, it isn’t always money matters that dominate the dialogue.
“One thing they all have in common is they want to talk about their love life,” said Jeon. “Because they’re so rational, they need help making sense of what they can’t capture on a spreadsheet.”
