Best Sites to Get a Psychic Reading Online in 2020


A psychic reading can be a profound and moving experience that reveals to you deeper parts of your subconscious journey. This being said, there are many reasons why you might want to be careful when choosing a psychic to give you an online reading. Not every person who claims to be psychic is actually legitimate. And even if the psychic is genuinely connected to the deeper aspects of life, a reading is an extremely personal and intimate experience. You don't want to go through the experience with just anyone, rather you want someone you feel comfortable with, someone you trust, and someone who speaks in a way that you understand it.

The best site to get a psychic reading online is going to be the one that has the right psychic for you. There is no one size fits all when it comes to readings. The following will explore the different factors you need to keep in mind when seeking a psychic and where this means you should be looking for one.

What Kind Of Psychic Reading Do You Want?

There are many different types of psychics, and depending on the reason you are seeking out guidance, you will want to take a different route. In regards to delivery, there are chat and voice and video recording options. In regards to ability, there are clairvoyant readers, claircognizant readers, clairaudient readers, clairsentient readers. Some readers participate in different faiths: Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Jewish...etc—if you are a member of a certain faith, this will likely be a major factor in your choice of psychic. Some readers use different tools such as palm reading, tarot cards, runes, and astrology, and some readers who use no tools.

Before looking at any websites, you're going to want to take a moment to think about all of these factors and decide what sort of reading you're looking for. Would you feel comfortable talking to a stranger over the phone without seeing their face during a reading? Are you better at expressing yourself via texting than listening? Are you worried about the implications of your reading on your relationship with God? Do you prefer having a visual guide like a tarot spread? Get clear on what you're actually looking for in a practical sense.

It is also worth noting, that due to the recent pandemic, many psychic readers have moved away from in-person meetings. The virtual psychic space is growing, and it is expected to continue to grow. One of the great benefits of this is that people can leave reviews so you have a better idea of other people's experiences.

Choosing A Website For A Psychic Reading

With all of the above information, you are ready to begin surfing the web and looking at psychic bios. If you are unsure of where to start, there's a sfweekly list of top picks. In addition to this, many psychics now have some form of social media, in particular Youtube channels—you may be able to search for psychics using one of these platforms. This option is fantastic because you might be able to see what an actual reading with the person looks like. Listen to your intuition as you search, the person who is right for your reading will feel right. If you have any reservations, keep looking.

What Type Of Question Or Guidance Are You Searching For?

You're also going to want to think about the question you want to ask or the topic that you're seeking guidance on. One of the biggest issues in all forms of reading is asking the right question. Of course, the details of each question are going to be different depending on you and your current situation and your past experiences but there are some simple guidelines.

Examples of Weak Questions:

  • Why won't he/she/they call me back?
  • What is going on in his/her/their heads?
  • Asking about people at work or your boss
  • Asking about specific anticipated or feared moments like getting a promotion, winning the lottery, getting into a relationship with a specific person, breaking up with someone, getting engaged, getting pregnant
  • Asking questions about an unborn child

What you'll notice with all of the above questions is that they relate to other people or external situations, none of these questions have anything to do with you. They all have a small focus, which means the information you get is not going to help you maneuver throughout your life. All of these questions involve how you want other people or the world at large to behave. Not only is this a limited, and perhaps even harmful way of viewing the world, but your perspective on these people and situations could be blinding you in certain regards.

The unborn child question, or questions along this vein, are particularly damaging even if your intentions are completely pure and based only on curiosity and have nothing to do with your desires for the child to be a certain way. Whatever answer you get is going to set expectations in your mind, and because children are so intuitive, they are going to pick up on and feel the weight of these expectations on their shoulders. If the child is going to do or be something, they're going to do or be something, let them do it without unnecessary burdens. Besides, they might go about these things in a way you didn't expect, and because you know where they're heading, you might keep steering them off the route they need to take first.

Examples of Strong Questions:

  • Why am I drawing someone towards me who doesn't call me back?
  • Why am I attracted to unavailable people?
  • Why am I always encountering people whose motives are suspicious to me or are hard for me to interpret?
  • Why do I feel like I need people to act this way or that way?
  • Why am I so desperate for that promotion, win, relationship...etc.
  • Why am I feeling stuck? How can I get out of a romantic or financial rut?

Do you see how all these questions are focused on you and your perspectives? You can imagine that whatever answer you are given is not only going to apply to your current circumstance but can guide you towards not being in the same negative place another time in the future. The best possible question you can ask is: what am I missing? What do I need to know about what's going on with me and my life right now? This type of question will not steer you wrong.

With the above information in mind, you are well on your way to choosing the right website and right psychic within that website for your reading. It is important to note that just because one psychic was the right choice at one point, does not mean they'll be the right pick for a different situation later.

Help! My Friend Is a No Show

Dear Armchair Psychologist,

I have a friend who doesn't reply to my messages about meeting for dinner, etc. Although, last week I ran into her at a local restaurant of mine, it has always been awkward to be friends with her. Should I continue our friendship or discontinue it? We've been friends for a total four years and nothing has changed. I don't feel as comfortable with her as my other close friends, and I don't think I'll ever be able to reach that comfort zone in pure friendship.


Dear Sadsies,

I am sorry to hear you've been neglected by your friend. You may already have the answer to your question, since you're evaluating the non-existing bond between yourself and your friend. However, I'll gladly affirm to you that a friendship that isn't reciprocated is not a good friendship.

I have had a similar situation with a friend whom I'd grown up with but who was also consistently a very negative person, a true Debby Downer. One day, I just had enough of her criticism and vitriol. I stopped making excuses for her and dumped her. It was a great decision and I haven't looked back. With that in mind, it could be possible that something has changed in your friend's life, but it's insignificant if she isn't responding to you. It's time to dump her and spend your energy where it's appreciated. Don't dwell on this friend. History is not enough to create a lasting bond, it only means just that—you and your friend have history—so let her be history!
