There are many types of spiritual and metaphysical readings in the market place today, it is essential that you know the difference prior to parting with hard earned cash. I will outline the difference dear reader so you are in the know.
A psychic reading is a reading which can be performed in a variety of ways. A face to face reading is one where the client and the reader sit face to face or in close proximity so that both people can have visual sight of one another, it could be claimed that this type of reading allows an unscrupulous reader to see visual signals and therefore influence the things he or she is saying to them, therefore one could claim that a phone psychic reading by contrast has the added advantage of taking place without close contact between the client or sitter and could therefore be a far more rigid test of true clairvoyancy than a face to face reading.
In a phone psychic reading the caller is simply asked to give their name and also date of birth to ensure they are over 18 years of age. Then the caller is often asked which type of reading they would prefer, eg life in general, or love or career or money. A good reader will then focus their attention on that area of the person's life and by using clairvoyancy will pick up advice and answers from their guides.
A medium reader is a reader who has the ability to connect with the consciousness or minds of those who have left the earth plane and now reside in the spirit realms. This is a subject of massive contention due to the delicate nature of the state of any bereaved person - this however does not change the fact that there exist many strong and true mediums with which one can contact the essence of their loved ones, this is one reason why the SNU exist as they serve, in a very disciplined way, this very purpose often for little or no fee.
A medium reader will prefer to give these type of spiritual readings rather than a simply life query reading which although still valid, is often not the reason the reader wishes to fulfil with their service of mediumship to mankind. A medium reading can take place either face to face in a one on one setting, in an audience setting such as at your local spiritualist church, or via the phone, which incidentally is in no way watered down, it is the ability of the medium in question and not the communication means used to deliver the reading.
An astrology reader is someone skilled in the art of reading your birth chart and the relevant position it is placed amongst planetary influences. Based on your date, time and place of birth much information about your past, present and future can be obtained in order to help you with the path of life. This type of reading is available by phone and also via email which is often a good way to have a reading due to your chart being prepared and emailed to you which of course is handy for referring back to later, and more handily as the months and years unfold especially if it is predictive.
