Like many oracles, she sees events through her eyes... on her tail.

The power to see into the future and/or events in the present. People can be born with this or gain it through freak accidents. If the latter, expect a Reset Button.

This can also lead into a Fantastic Aesop about not using this power for selfish gains. It can also lead to Fridge Logic about being able to see the future not being able to to avoid and/or fix many problems. But then stories that do are often accused of having God Mode Sues. Although the latter can justify a Xanatos Roulette.

And of course many people fake this power, particularly the stereotypical gypsy fortune teller.

A Sub-Trope of Psychic Powers.

A Sister Trope to My Significance Sense Is Tingling (a more vague feeling instead of visions).
