Zaicha does not exist in Islam. Also, this practice is Haram as it involves astrology and fortune telling.

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said that, “Whoever goes to an astrologer or diviner and believes them has disbelieved in that which has been revealed to Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam).” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Nasa’i, and Ibn Maja)

You must refer to Istikharah as this is proven from Sunnah.
