What better way to start off your year, week, or day than with an online psychic reading?
Regardless of whether or not you’re spiritual–hell, even if you’re skeptical of the practice–consulting a psychic can be both fun but therapeutic. And yes, I know how just how outlandish that sounds. How can something so intangible (let alone controversial) act as a form of therapy? Read on.
What is an online psychic chat?
Before we dive into the therapeutic properties of partaking in an online psychic chat, you should have a solid understanding of what a reading is. Generally, when we think of psychic readings we associate it with future and fortune telling. However, that’s not completely accurate.
Psychics use extrasensory perception (ESP) to guide you through a particular problem or stage in your life. Some psychics may use tarot cards during your online psychic chat to help make sense of the stress in your life, while others just rely on their ability to read the energy you carry. But if you visit a psychic-medium, they’ll not only read your presenting energy but the energy of those who may have passed on but linger with you. For clarity’s sake, not all psychics are mediums (or possess the ability to contact your dead relatives), but all mediums are psychic.
In short, psychics act more like a spiritual guide than they do fortune tellers because the information they give you is based on a specific moment in time–the present. But don’t take this enlightenment at face value, for your life isn’t written in stone and you still have the opportunity to change said forecasts! That is–if you want to.
How to know you’re working with a trusted psychic
Unfortunately, when you’re dealing with an intangible service like this, it’s easy to fall victim to a scam artist. Here are a few key tips to ensure you only work with someone who’s the real deal.
- Be cautious, do your research, and read reviews of both websites and psychics. I cannot stress enough how important this is–even if a site is legit, swindlers have occasionally found ways to break through the barrier. The easiest way to avoid them is by reading verified customer reviews of each and every psychic you consider a potential match (instead of just throwing money at your first pick).
- Allow your psychic to lead the session and answer their questions as simply as possible. There’s no need to run off on tangents or provide supplemental information (this isn’t a psychotherapy session). If you’re worried you haven’t given them a clear enough response, ask if they would like you to go into greater detail but don’t freely offer up more specifics than any given question requires.
- Listen for clues. Watch out for credible details and other elements applicable to your life that the psychic wouldn’t know about unless they truly know what they’re doing.
Questions to ask a psychic
Contrary to what you may have been told by friends, if you’re booking a psychic reading for an answer to a specific question, you’ll likely end up disappointed. As previously stated, any trusted psychic will guide the session for you, as they’re the ones picking up and dissecting the energy you’re putting out. But that doesn’t mean you have to let Jesus take the wheel on the reading, you just have to keep an open mind and stray away from a specific agenda (unless the session calls for such, like that of a psychic love reading).
Okay? No? Here, let me explain…
Instead of examining specific details outside of your control, the best questions to ask a psychic rely solely on your behavior. A good rule of thumb is to avoid asking “who,” “when,” or “where” centered questions and focus on the “why” or “how” (More explanation on this format can be found here). To help you decipher between good and bad types of questions, I’ve listed examples of the kinds of questions you should ask below.
- How can I reconnect and balance my mind, body, and spirit?
- What responsibilities have I taken on that aren’t my own?
- How can I improve my social and/or romantic relationships?
- What is the best way for me to heal emotionally?
It’s important to note that even though psychics can offer solid advice on how you can go about improving your life based on their perception of how you react to stressors, they are NOT to be confused with certified mental health professionals or life coaches.

Types of online psychic readings
When looking to talk to a psychic, you’ll need to know what type of reading you’re looking for as not all psychics offer the same services. Just know there are two sets of services: structured and unstructured. Structured services rely on exploring the symbols and patterns in your life that have defined meanings, whereas unstructured readings are based on the reader’s perception of the energy you bring with you. For a breakdown of some of the most popular types of psychic services, continue reading.
Types of structured readings
- Cartomancy: Readings that use a random selection from a deck of cards to gain insight into a person’s life, tarot is one form of cartomancy.
- Dream interpretations: Readings that dissect dreams and assign meaning to symbols/actions within the dream that relates to your life.
- Numerology: Readings that help you flesh out a life path based on the numbers tied to your life (like your birthday).
- Tarot: A type of cartomancy that uses a deck of 78 cards with assigned imagery/symbolism/meaning to help you make sense of a situation.
Types of unstructured readings
- Psychic love readings: Readings focused on your love and sexual life, determined by the energy you carry.
- Angel card readings: Similar to tarot readings, angel card readings can give insight into your career, finances, and relationships. But instead of using a tarot deck, the reader (or psychic) taps into the energy presented by your guardian angel.
- Past life readings: If you’ve ever wondered why you fear certain things or have a crazy case of deja vu, a past life reading can help you sort it out. As the name suggests, an online psychic will read into your past by guiding you through a hypnotic state and deep into your unconscious memory.
- Spiritual readings: Ideal for those looking to be enlightened, spiritual readings are intended to raise your awareness of and connect you with the spiritual forces that are constantly at work around you.
Where to get a psychic reading online
Now that you know what an online psychic chat entails, here are the best sites for readings with trusted psychics.
If you’re interested in receiving a love reading, the online psychics over at Keen know what they’re doing. Although the site has low ratings on customer review services like SiteJabber, you’ll see most of the complaints aren’t about the readings themselves but how the site runs its payment options. To avoid conflict, reviewers recommend only loading the amount of money you plan to use for a reading at any given time. Because if you upload $40, spend $15 on a call and then forget about the balance and let sit too long, Keen will deduct value for “inactivity.”
Keen is also offering all new users three free minutes to use towards any reading!
