We can all agree that life can get a little confusing and overwhelming from time to time. Sometimes we’re at a loss, and even speaking to friends, family, and therapists won’t help in a specific situation. In these situations, consulting an online psychic for guidance can help. But not all psychic readings are created equally; online psychic platforms advertise many different varieties of psychic readings. How do you choose the method that is best for you?

In this article we’ll be talking about the various methods of psychic reading, what they entail, and how to choose which one is right for you based on what you want to know.

What is a psychic reading? 

First of all, what exactly IS a psychic reading? Broadly, it’s a conversation between you and somebody with psychic gifts, where they read your energy or the energy of a situation using a variety of methods to answer a question or give you a better sense of the bigger picture surrounding an issue in your life.

Psychics read in different ways, using different tools; some use no tools at all other than the gifts they are born with. Some of these include the ‘Clairs:’

  • Clairvoyance: Clear Sight – the reader sees visions or impressions regarding your situation; these can be past, present, or future events

  • Clairaudience: Clear Hearing – the reader hears snippets of conversation, words, or messages from guides pertaining to your situation.
  • Clairsentience: Clear Feeling – a bit more difficult to quantify; the reader has a feeling about the situation, without any sensory input

  • Claircognizance: Clear Knowing – the reader has a gut feeling and an innate knowing of the situation; sometimes this is also known as intuition

What are the different types of psychic readings?

There’s more than one way to receive a psychic reading. Besides just having a straight conversation with a psychic, where they pick up on details surrounding your question and consult with you and offer advice based on the information they may receive based on their psychic gifts, you may also speak to tarot readers, astrologers, online mediums, love psychics, and more. Let’s take a look at how these all differ from each other.

What is a tarot reading? 

Tarot cards are a deck of cards featuring a Major and Minor Arcana with symbolism, imagery, and numerology borrowing from a variety of sources such as the hero’s journey and Jewish mysticism. When shuffled, the reader uses the symbolism of the cards to create a story that helps the querent (or question-asker) understand a situation more fully or to bring them more clarity.

Why should I choose a tarot reading? 

Tarot readings are great for guidance and clarity. If there is something going on in your life that you don’t understand, a tarot reading can help you to clear it up. If you feel you are at a crossroads of a situation, a tarot reading can help point you down the higher road.

Tarot readings are not ideal for predicting events of the future, answering yes or no questions, or finding out the motives or feelings of another person.

What is an astrology reading?

Astrology, due to its rising mainstream popularity, is an often-misunderstood branch of psychic reading. In fact, it doesn’t have much to do with psychic ability at all; rather it is based on the movements of the planets, which is more precise and measurable than a lot of factors that are dealt with in the world of psychic reading.

Astrology readings can vary. A birth chart reading is a deep dive into your chart to examine the planets in signs and what houses they fall into, what aspects they make to each other, and what degree they fall at. This is a wonderful tool for self-actualization.

A transit reading takes a look at the current planets and any aspects they might be making to your natal aspects, and how that could be affecting you in the near future. This can illuminate cycles of life that you find yourself going through.

Why should I choose an astrology reading?

If you are looking for insight and a greater understanding of yourself and how to live your best life, your birth chart is essentially the blueprint, and an astrologer can help you to understand how to read it. If you’re looking to understand the patterns and themes of your life, or the best time to start a new venture, an electional astrology reading, or transit reading, is your best bet.

Astrology is not a form of fortune telling. There is no fixed future that astrology – or any form of psychic reading, for that matter – can tell. If you want answers about your love life in particular, it is best to consult a psychic specializing in love, rather than an astrologer.

What is a medium?

An online medium is a psychic that has a connection to the spirit world or worlds beyond our corporeal plane of existence. Often they are connected via a spirit guide who they use as a go-between to communicate with other beings in the spirit realm, although some hear these messages directly.

The beings they can communicate with vary. They can receive messages from angels, spirits of those who have passed from this earth, spirits that haven’t made their way to earth yet, ascended masters, and more. These beings often have messages, advice, or guidance for you that they are unable to convey without the help of a channeler like a medium.

Going to an online medium requires an open mind and an open heart. If you don’t believe in their work, their message might be muddied or not come through at all.

Why should I choose an online medium?

If a loved one has passed and you want to speak to them, an online medium can help facilitate that connection. They can also pass on messages from your guides and ancestors. If you feel pulled to speak with an online medium, that usually means that you have a message waiting in the spirit realm. They can offer guidance, comfort, and closure.  Sometimes they can even warn you away from situations or people that are toxic.

What is a love psychic reading?

Love psychics are psychics who specialize in everything to do with love and relationships, without focusing on any other area of life. Since relationships are such an integral part of our lives, this branch of psychic reading is a category all its own and requires its own skill.

Love psychics can use any and all of the tools and methods described above to guide you in your relationship journey. They can answer questions about current relationships, cheating hearts, finding new love, compatibility with your lover, and more.

Why should I choose a love psychic?

This one’s pretty self-explanatory… If you have any question at all pertaining to love and relationships, a psychic specializing in love will be there to answer all of your questions and offer guidance.

Final Thoughts

Now that you have a better understanding of how different types of psychic readings work, you should find it easy to choose the reading method that will work best for you.
