Top 20 Types of Psychic Readings

Top 20 Types of Psychic ReadingsAre you confused about what type of psychic reading would be best for you?  You are not alone!   Many new callers to the Psychic Advisor Network have a hard time sorting through our Psychic Advisors to find one that they feel can help them with their questions about the future.

In most cases, it is a language barrier.   What is the difference between a clairvoyant and a medium?   Is there any similarity between tarot and the i-ching?  To make this easier for you, we have compiled a list of the top 20 types of psychic readings.

  • Astrology – Some people believe that astrology is just “that column”
    in the New York Times that you read for fun.   After all, it should apply to everyone that is a particular sign, right?   Not exactly – a chart that is drawn up for your time and place of birth reveals the energies and potentials you were born with.  An astrologer can predict the current trends in your life based upon where the planets in the heavens are currently and compare them to where they were when you were born.   Out of all the psychic tools, Astrology is probably the best when timing is of importance to you.
  • Aura Readings – The human body has an outer organ called “the skin” that acts as a physical shield so that the inner organs are not damaged.  Likewise, the energy field that radiates from the skin outward is called an ‘auric field’ (or simply an aura) that protects the physical body from psychic or spiritual damage.   A trained psychic that specializes in aura readings can gain information about you by tapping into this energy field.  The field contains your memories, symbolic images, and energies that belong to others – such as friends, family members, and even enemies.   An aura reading can help you get in touch with your own energy, and help you release blocks that are preventing your spiritual or emotional growth.
  • Cartomancy – The current deck of cards we use to play rummy or poker arrived on the European scene in the 14th century.  Playing cards were all the rage amongst the wealthy, those of noble origins, and the elite who used them for fun and gambling.  Moreover, the playing cards were also used to reveal the future to those who sought out their advice.   The cards are assigned meanings by the reader to reflect various aspects of the individual’s life using ‘spreads’ that revealed the past, present, and future.   Cartomancy’s popularity increased during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries into a sophisticated method of fortune telling.   In the 21st century, cartomancy has experienced resurgence and has evolved into many oracle and angel decks that are experiencing enormous popularity.
  • Cleromancy – The act of acting lots is over 4,000 years old.  It appears frequently in the Judeo-Christian bible, and is even an act commanded by God in the book of Leviticus (Leviticus 16:8).   Today, cleromancy is mainly executed by throwing bones, stones, or dice.  A cleromancer then analyzes the position, orientation, and mutual proximity of the objects cast.
  • Clairvoyant – Clairvoyant means clear seeing.  Psychics that utilize this skill have the ability to see images or visions that are related to the individual’s life.  Clairvoyants can tap into the energy system of the client and see the past, present, and future.   The modern understanding of the word psychic is often synonymous for clairvoyant.
  • Psychometry – Psychometry is very similar to clairvoyance except that the psychometrist usually uses an article that belongs to the client in order to tape into their unique vibration.   In some cases, psychics that specialize in psychometry will use their own objects to receive information.
  • Remote Viewing – Remote viewing is a specialized clairvoyant skill that allows the psychic to travel “psychically” to another location to describe a scene or event.   Once the psychic is in the location they can read the past, present, and future of that location.  Remote viewing is frequently used by psychic investigators to describe crime scenes and how crimes happen.  Further, it is used in past life regression sessions so that the psychic can reveal the clients past lives to them through the images they receive.
  • Crystal Ball Readings – Chrystal Ball Readings are similar to clairvoyant readings and psychometry.   It is psychometric because it involves the use of an object.   The trained crystal ball reader will see images or visions through the use of their crystal ball.   This skill is often used in Hollywood representations of psychics because it is an excellent prop they can use the convey information on the screen.
  • Clairaudience – Clairaudience is clear hearing.  A psychic who is clairaudient will receive information through sounds.   The audio information may be either symbolic or literal.   In both cases, the clairaudient is able to interpret the meaning of the sounds to the client.
  • Channeling – Channeling is often confused with mediumship (more          on mediums below); however both are very different forms of psychic communications.  All channels have the gift of clairaudience, yet the channel has a unique ability to access audio frequencies and receive information from disembodied beings such as spirit guides or angels.   The channel will convey the ‘messages’ to the client.  In addition, channels will often serve as facilitators to assist clients to access their own higher guidance.   Automatic writing is a form of channeling.
  • Mediumship – Since the turn of the century, the most popular form of psychic advice has come in the forum of mediumship.  Simply put, a medium is a psychic that can communicate with loved ones that have passed on to the other side.  Gifted mediums can provide clients with the closure they need to move forward with their lives, yet still feel connected to those they love.   Additionally, many mediums are also channels which allow them to connect to high level spiritual beings that convey spiritual messages to clients.
  • Telepathy – A telepath is a psychic who can receive psychic transmission based on thought patterns.   There are several different types of telepathy including latent, precognitive, and emotive.  Despite the difference in the labels, each type of telepathy receives its information from thought patterns (called PSI).   Telepath’s can reveal what someone’s thoughts are in the past, present, and future.
  • Clairsentient – Clairsentient means ‘clear feeling’.   Out of all the psychic skills, clairsentience is the broadest. For many, clairsentience is the ability to feel emotions and atmosphere around an experience, event, or individual.   For others, it is the ability to feel information by touching an object (see psychometry).   Often, a clairsentient is consulted to help heal and release past emotional traumas by helping the client come to terms with suppressed emotions.
  • Empath – An empath is an individual that can feel and control another person’s emotions or emotional state.
  • Lithomancy – Lithomancy is the psychic art of reading stones (gemstones and crystals) by tossing them down and analyzing their patterns based upon location, orientation, and proximity.   Lithomancers use a quadrant map and the meanings of the stones to predict the future to the client.
  • I-ching – An ancient Chinese oracle that reveals spiritual based messages by tossing either coins or yarrow sticks on a table to form a trigram.   The trigram is then applied to the client’s life providing them with additional insight into their past, present, and future.
  • Palmistry – The art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm.
  • Rune Readings – Runes are an ancient alphabet used for divining the future.  The runes are cast on a mat to discern future events or path a problem or issue will manifest.
  • Numerology – Numerology is the study of numbers and how they apply to an individual’s life.   This is done in many ways – either through the name given at birth, the current name used, or the client’s birthdate.   Like astrology and the constant shift of the planets, numbers also shift revealing future insight into a client’s life.
  • Tarot Readings – Tarot exploded in popularity during the 1960’s when author Eden Gray’s paperback book was released to market.   Her book contained modernized meanings to the Rider Waite Smith deck that was produced earlier in the century.  Since then, numerous tarot decks have been produced are one of the most popular items at New Age shops around the world.   The Tarot is a system of 78 cards that are used in many different ways to gain insight into an individual’s life.   Tarot readers (called Tarotists) use spreads to assign particular lenses through which the reader interprets the card.

These are just the top 20 types of psychic readings.  We will explore many of their uses and other types of readings in future blogs.

On Thursday, R&B crooner Marcus Canty was eliminated on the X-Factor.  Canty, who was selected by L.A. Reid to be in the final 12, found himself in the bottom two with the soulful Josh Krajcek.  Canty accepted the elimination with grace and dignity.

Canty, a resident of Baltimore, MD, no doubt has enormous talent.  He was no stranger to the bottom 2 having survived it 3 other times to compete in the semi-finals.   Unfortunately, his fate ran out to the superior vocals of Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcek or the popular appeal of Chris Rene.

We decided that a glimpse into Canty’s musical future was in store!

The cards pulled – 8 of Cups, King of Swords Reversed, 2 of Swords Reversed


Note:  The King of Swords and the 2 of Swords above are actually reversed, but we left them upright to clearly see the imagery.

The Reading:

I must admit that I was a little concerned when these three images appeared.  None of them look like a happy time for Marcus and if I was doing an actual reading for him, I would probably discuss making sure he knows what he is getting involved with before he signs any dotted line.

The 8 of Cups was expected.  He has been eliminated from the competition and is now walking away.  He could experience a bit of depression or disappointment about the decision and needs to look inward before making any forward movements.  I would suggest that Marcus take a bit of time off and do some soul searching.  Does he want to be a pop singer or does he want to be a gospel singer?   He needs to decide his own path.

The next card that I turned over was the King of Swords Reversed (Rx).   This is not a great card to receive in any industry much less the music industry.  Marcus needs to be very careful with who he deals with as unscrupulous people may be around.  Since the King of Swords has much to do with the sign of Libra, legal problems or improper legalities may be involved.

The final card I drew was the 2 of Swords Rx.  This is the traditional card of the stalemate, but in this case the card is reversed.  Many tarot readers focus on the blind fold on the card to represent not being able to see through a situation or inability to make a decision.  Reversed this card means making a decision, but it could ultimately be the wrong one.  Also, this can be a card that signifies betrayals.

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.   Although I doubt that Marcus will read this blog (after all he has better things to do than surf the internet), if he does happen to run across this or it is forwarded to him, I would recommend that he proceed with severe caution before making any decisions.   In addition, I would suggest that he has his entertainment attorney go over any form of legal contracts with a fine tooth comb.

The world of tarot is a fascinating and exciting discovery.   The tarot can answer virtually any of your questions about life.  Our advisors have come across a resistance to tarot, and mainly because it is deeply misunderstood, yet the tarot is probably one of the best psychic tools on the market.  In fact, many psychics will use the images of the tarot to jump start their intuitive feelings and use it was a doorway to psychically connect with their clients.

Our advisors believe that the problem with tarot resides in the fact that those that become interested in tarot are overwhelmed by the number of decks on the market.  Some of them are very hard to understand are best for advanced readings.

We have compiled a list of the Top 10 Tarot Decks for Beginners:

  1. Rider Waite Smith – The Rider Waite Smith deck is the most popular tarot deck in the world.  Designed during the earth 20th century by Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of occultist Arthur E. Waite, the RWS deck is the father of all beginner tarot decks and the inspiration for hundreds of new decks called “RWS clones”.   Many of the beginner books on tarot use some derivation of the RWS decks in their illustrations.   This is an incredible beginner’s deck for someone who wishes to seriously study tarot.
  2. Gaian Tarot – The Gaian Tarot was released in 2011 by Joanna Powell Colbert, and is very popular with the bulk of the tarot community.   Although the Gaian Tarot follows a numerical sequence consistent with most tarot decks, it diverts from traditional scenery in favor of a more nature oriented deck.   Although you could successfully use this deck to predict, the primary tone of this deck lends itself more towards healing and introspection.  The Gaian Tarot is an incredible deck for those that want to use tarot for journaling work.
  3. Legacy of the Divine Tarot – The Legacy of the Divine Tarot was created by award winning graphic artist Ciro Marchetti.  Although Mr. Marchetti claims that he is not a tarot reader, his understanding of tarot’s depth and nuance are noticeable and leads one to believe that he is just being humble.   The images (for the most part) follows an RWS format, yet are created with stunning imagery and colorful hues.   If you are interested in beautiful tarot cards this is a highly recommended deck.
  4. The Gilded Tarot – The Gileded Tarot (like the Legacy of the Divine Tarot) is designed by Ciro Marchetti and was his first leap into the artist world of tarot.  The Gilded Tarot is a traditional RWS clone with stunning CGI graphics.  The text for the Gilded Tarot was written by accomplished tarotist and author Barbara Moore.  The companion book describes the cards and provides significant information for interpretation.
  5. Tarot of Ascension – The Tarot of Ascension is a deck released in 2010 by Lo Scarabeo.  This deck focuses around the ever popular Mayan Calendar lore, and the belief that the world will enter into a spiritual enlightenment in 2012.   If you are interested in what spiritual ascension and enlightenment then this deck is the one for you.   This deck is great for predictive work or self-discovery readings.
  6. Wheel of the Year Tarot – If you are attracted to Pagan or Wiccan themes this deck by Lo Scarabeo is a great tarot beginner’s deck.  The deck created in vibrant watercolors reveals our yearly passage of the seasons and what seasonal symbolism means on an inner level.  This deck is great for predictive work or those experiencing health or aging related issues.
  7. The Wizard’s Tarot – This deck was designed by prolific tarot author Corrine Kenner.  If you are a fan of the Harry Potter series the themes within the Wizard’s Tarot may speak to the adventurer or the hero in you.   The cards are done in beautiful CGI graphics and the book penned by Kenner is one of the best books packaged with a tarot deck.  The Wizard’s Tarot is excellent for any type of tarot work.
  8. The Fairy Tale Tarot – Are you one of the 10 million fans of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time?”  If you are, you will surely enjoy this deck!   The Fairy Tale Tarot was designed by one of the best tarot artists of our time – Lisa Hunt.   The deck takes you through the world of Fairy Tales, and introduces you to the inner meaning of these timeless stories.  This is an incredible deck for children or those interested in self-discovery.  The book included with the Fairy Tale Tarot is a must for any tarot library.
  9. The Mythic Tarot – Originally published in the 80’s, the Mythic Tarot was re-illustrated as the New Mythic Tarot and released again in 2011.   The images now in CGI graphic (the most popular new medium of tarot) are vivid and colorful.  The Mythic Tarot explores the world of Greek Mythology, and is one of the best decks for predictive and psychological work.   The deck includes (probably) the best book written on tarot penned by Liz Greene and Juliet Sharman Burke.
  10. The Sharman Casseli Deck – This is the most recent deck designed by Juliet Sharman Burke (co-creator of the Mythic Tarot) and illustrated by Gionnani Casseli.   This deck is a very close Rider Waite Smith clone stripped of its excessive religious symbolism.  For those that are interested in studying tarot and NOT esoterica this is an incredible all-purpose tarot deck.
