Curious? Skeptical? Learn what to expect.
As you consider the many different types of psychic readings, it’s important to start with some clarity around what you hope to gain from the psychic advice. Are you looking for answers to nagging questions? Insight into what makes you tick? Guidance navigating a tricky situation? Timelines about future events? Contact with a loved one who has passed on? Or maybe to leave the reading with a feeling of hope, validation, or healing?
Not only can you choose a psychic who specializes in any of these reading types, but you should feel empowered to go into the reading stating the type of psychic advice you are looking for.
Gone are the days when most psychic readings took place in storefronts, parlors, and boardwalks. The growth of online psychic services since the 1990’s has made every imaginable type of psychic reading safer and more accessible than ever before. The psychics in our network offer many different types of psychic advice, some of which utilize specific divination tools, like tarot cards or numerology, while other readings rely purely on their psychic gifts.
To help you sort through your options, here is a list of types of psychic readings and psychic tools you may find.
Sometimes called angel oracle cards, these divination cards each have the image of an angel and a message related to an aspect of your life or a specific emotion. During readings, your questions are addressed by these images and messages, which often take the form of affirmations and advice from the guardian angels and spirits that guide them. The angels include recognizable angels from the Bible (Raphael, Michael, Gabriel) or Judeo-Christian lore (Uriel, Azrael, etc.).
Astrology Readings can predict situations, influences, and patterns in your life based on astrological charts that show the position of the sun, moon, and planets at a specific time. An astrologer can interpret your natal chart and create a comprehensive forecast for you based on your birth information. Astrology readings are more personalized and comprehensive than horoscopes, which are based on your zodiac sign.
Auras are a color or colored outline that emanates from the surface of an object or around a person that reflects their life force and balance of chakra energies. Psychics who read auras as part of their Energy Work are often able to tell the condition of your health, mental and emotional state based on the colors that emanate from your energetic field. Seeing your aura can help a psychic identify chakra imbalances, areas that need work, and overall disposition.
In a cartomancy reading, a psychic uses a standard deck of playing cards as a divination tool to help guide your choices about the present and future. Hearts (which correspond to Cups in tarot readings) govern the emotions, while Diamonds (Pentacles in tarot) are linked to a variety of issues outside the home. Clubs (Wands) draw attention to business and finances, and Spades (Swords) shed light on difficulties that may be facing you.
Chakra alignment and balancing is a form of Energy Healing. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for “wheel,” and a wheel needs energy to move. Your chakras or energy centers reveal your spiritual and physical health and any or all your chakras can become blocked or weak. There are techniques that you can perform on yourself, or with the help of a psychic, to unblock those chakras for a healthier mind or body.
Channeling is the process that a psychic medium uses to communicate spiritual guidance to those who seek a connection to their spirit guides or loved ones who have died. The medium channels the information at an intuitive level and expresses it in human language. Channeling can be useful to a person who needs questions answered, guidance, or closure with a loved one who has passed.
Dreams are believed to reflect our subconscious worries, true feelings, and emotions. They may also contain important messages from the Universe. According to Psychic Pixie, dreaming is when your mind is in its clearest state for receiving messages from a higher power. Psychic dream interpreters tap into the energy of your dreams to provide meaning and clarity to the messages you are receiving.
A method of healing, energy work uses a variety of techniques focusing on the body's energy centers to improve a health condition. Reiki is one of the best-known forms of energy work that addresses body, mind, and spiritual healing and can be performed remotely. When an energy worker taps into the body's chakras and pathways in a remote energy work session, blockages can be cleared, and the body become balanced.
With a description of an item and inner guidance, a psychic may be able to find a missing item that has meaning for you. This is often done by relying on "remote viewing," a practice in which clairvoyants can focus on objects that are far off and summon information that will pinpoint their location. The object of the search often has sentimental or monetary value and the connection between the seeker and the item is important if the two are to be reunited.
Love readings are by far the most requested reading type, answering such questions as “When will I find love?”, “How does she feel about me?”, “Is he cheating on me?”, “How can I improve my relationship?” and so much more. There are even unexpected ways that psychic information can come up in a love reading – a flash of clairvoyant vision foretelling visual details of a future lover, or information about a soulmate from a past life.
There are specific tarot spreads that can be used to predict future love or answer questions about a love relationship. A gifted tarot reader is more than simply an expert in tarot card meanings but is also adept at reading your energy and the energy of your person of interest, combining this psychic information, with the placement of the cards, and their symbolism and imagery, to weave together a meaningful interpretation that speaks to your story.
In a numerology reading, your name and date of birth is used to calculate a numerology chart that will provide information about your personality and relationships. A numerologist can give you insight into your past and predictions about your future, predict outcomes and compatibility for relationships, lucky and unlucky days, and more. Additionally, a numerologist can show you how altering the spelling of your name or modifying the numbers of your address can change your life for the better.
During a past life reading a psychic sees and gathers intuitive information about your past lives and your various incarnations. This specialized reading can address a wide variety of questions about your life today, as it uncovers unresolved emotional issues and/or trauma that may be carried from one lifetime to the next based on karmic theory. A past life reading can help explain why you may act, feel, or behave a certain way in this lifetime. Once information regarding any unresolved emotional issues and/or trauma is revealed, the healing can then begin.
In a spiritual reading, a psychic taps into the knowledge of the spiritual realm as well as your higher self, helping you see patterns in personality, history and relationships as well as predict directions that you may take in your present and future circumstances. Today’s psychics come from many spiritual traditions and backgrounds, and many feel at home with a metaphysical approach to their spirituality.
Tarot readings are based on a divination card deck which reveals meaning and messages for all stages of life's journey. The cards, which date back to the late 1700s in Europe, provide insight into good and bad influences, positive experiences, and stressful uncertainties that we're likely to encounter in daily life. A skilled tarot reader draws on their knowledge of the cards and their psychic insight to bring you insight and information about current and future events and timing.
Working with a psychic advisor can give you powerful insights to help navigate life's biggest challenges.
