Seer; Seeress

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Aseer is a “see-er;” a clairvoyant. It is one who is able to see the future; one to whom divine revelations are made in visions. In the Bible, I Samuel 9:9 reads, “Beforehand in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer, for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer.” In Israel a seer was called ro’eh(meaning “visionary") or hozeh ("gazer"), while a prophet was nabhi.

Bletzer defines seer as “a male psychic specializing in clairvoyance, clairsentience, and prophecy. Female is called seeress.”
