While there’s no denying that speaking to a psychic is an unconventional way to get advice, direction, or peace of mind, you’ve got an open mind and heart if you want it to be a useful outlet. But if you’re new to the spiritual world, it can feel incredibly overwhelming — especially when it comes to deciphering which type of psychic to choose. Their abilities must match up with your needs. Not to worry. Here’s a basic rundown of the different kinds of psychics and readings that can assist, enlighten, and guide you. 

Different Types of Psychic Abilities 

Unfortunately, psychics sometimes get a bad rap because they’re placed under the same proverbial false umbrella seen in the movies. You know, flashing neon signs, crystal balls, gold caps, and evil curses. The reality is, there are several different types of psychics (legit ones) who can have multiple gifts — let’s take a closer look. 

General Psychics

Psychics rely on their intuition to collect data about one’s past, present, and future. This is achieved by reading the recipient’s energy field, using divination tools like tarot or astrology, or even connecting with spirit guides. Psychic readings provide clarity, peace of mind, self-discovery, and confidence. Some psychics specialize in divination tools such as tarot or astrology (more on those two in a bit) or gifts such as remote viewing or automatic writing. Others may simply rely on intuition or the power of one or more of the four “clairs:” clairaudience (hearing voices), clairvoyance (seeing images), clairsentience (recognizing feelings), and claircognizance (knowing). 


For starters, while all mediums are psychic, not all psychics are mediums. This type of advisor has the unique gift of communicating with the deceased (person or pet), so you wouldn’t make an appointment to discuss topics such as your relationship or a new job offer. Their only goals are to provide individuals with the comfort of knowing their departed loved ones are still a part of their lives, banish the fear of death, deliver messages from the deceased, and provide closure and bereavement support. 

Tarot Readers 

Tarot readers typically rely on a deck of 78 cards to predict potential outcomes while assessing various influences connected to a person, circumstance, or both. A reading can help with every aspect of your life, including personal growth, relationships, self-care, healing, significant changes, and goal-setting. Also, tarot can enlighten you about your past, present, and future represent (though the future is not predetermined.). Don’t pay any attention to popular myths about tarot such as it’s a religion, a reader can predict the future or fix your problems, your spread is responsible for our life path, and there’s a potential for curses. 

Love and Relationship Experts

While all psychics can provide some level of love and relationship advice, an expert is naturally more in tune with matters of the heart. Relationship advice is one of the most popular reasons why people consult a psychic — and with good reason. Even though finding love can be wonderful, it can also cause tremendous heartache. A psychic reading can help you understand your relationship’s dynamics while gaining insight into what you can expect down the road. Or, perhaps you’re single, and you want to know how to attract a lover, twin flame, or soulmate. You may also be seeking advice on how to move on after a divorce or infidelity. Of course, love doesn’t always have to be between two people. It could be self-love that you’re seeking. 


An astrology reading is when an astrologer uses your natal chart — basically, a tool that maps out the exact position of all of the stars and the planets at the precise moment you were born — to provide you with thorough insight. Astrologers don’t like to look at a chart as having “good” or “bad” features. Rather, each personal map is an abundance of information that can be presented as a list of choices. Which of those choices you decide to put into motion is entirely up to you, but your chart is there as a guide to help you choose the ones in your favor. An astrology reading can provide you with an in-depth look at prominent themes and issues in your life so that you can find inspiration, but also constructive advice for conquering any potential roadblocks. Some reasons people opt for this reading is because they’re stuck in a rut, the desire to understand past lives, when starting a new relationship or making a significant life change, or during an astrological transit (think: Mercury in retrograde.)

Types of Psychic Readings 

If you’re already on the Psychic Center website, then you know very well that psychic readings don’t have to be conducted in person. Phone and online chat readings are just as effective — maybe even more so — because you have complete anonymity, numerous advisors to choose from, and less risk of getting a cold (scam) psychic reading. You can also gracefully end the session and have more than one advisor!

Over the Phone Reading

Each psychic has a different way of tapping into a client’s energy field or “logging on” (with your permission, of course). Typical methods include hearing guidance, tuning into energetic planes, seeing visions, working with angels or spirit guides, or only intuition. If a psychic is channeling you, they need not be in the same room to accept intel from their guides —  or yours. 

Some psychics use divination tools such as tarot to tune into their intuition on your behalf, but again, you need not be present for a reading to be effective. Obviously, the tarot reader will be the only one doing any card shuffling and manipulation, but only after they’ve connected with your energy. Mediums work in the same way. 

Online Psychic Chat Reading

Do you love texting? Messaging your friends on Facebook or Snapchat? If so, then you may feel most comfortable with a chat-type of reading. It basically works the same as a phone reading regarding how a psychic connects with you once you’ve permitted them. Simply choose your advisor, hit the “chat now” option, and you’ll be connected to an advisor through a chat window, right then and there! Unlike a phone reading where you have to keep track of the time on your own, a chat session shows you how many minutes have elapsed on your screen, making it easier for you to gauge when you need to end your reading based on your budget. Also, instead of taking notes during your session, a transcript of your chat conversation will be stored in your account for you to access whenever you like. It’s never a bad idea to look back at previous readings to see if you’re making progress on your own and with your advisor. 

Want To Experience A Psychic Reading For Yourself? 

You don’t have to go far to get psychic advice. From love to life advice, you can get different types of psychic readings from the comfort of your own home. What can a psychic tell you? 

While most Psychic Center advisors are able to tune into your energy and recognize your situation naturally, the world’s your oyster in terms of what you want to get out of a reading. Just remember that the future is not predetermined, so while a psychic will give you the tools, advice, and clarity, it’s up to you to put the wheels in motion.
