What People are Saying
Thank you for my Personal Astrology Profile. Although I feel like it was me for the most part, some of the insight that I knew deep down was true was hard to read. However, I will be able to work on those areas. Everyone owes it to themselves to get an astrology reading at least once in there life; they may be quite surprised of finding themselves.
-- Belinda, U.S.
This reading has been a blessing to me as it is so true! Sometimes I torment myself as to why I have so many inner feelings, I fight within myself and a restlessness that I couldn't figure out! All these years, suffering emotionally. The reading fit me to the tee. Thank you! Much more than I expected!

Call a psychic hotline that's been around for awhile. If you've seen its flyers, business cards or an 800 number for years, it's probably reputable. Since the ETC charged phone psychic Miss Cleo with fraud in a famous case in the early 2000s, psychic hotlines are under more scrutiny for their billing practices.
Act as natural as possible when talking to the psychic. Even if you're anxious about a possible job or lover and want to hear good things, don't be nervous. In some ways, the psychic is like a therapist who listens to your troubles and questions and tries to help and comfort you.
Express your emotions honestly. This will help the psychic to key in on your feelings and vibrations. Yes, some of them are really able to do that. If you feel like crying, it's all right. You don't need to be embarrassed. You'll never meet the psychic in person, so don't worry about making a fool out of yourself by pouring out your feelings.
Jot down a few questions before calling the psychic hotline. In the heat of the moment, you might start talking about something entirely different than your original subject. You don't want to hang up the phone, only to realize you need to call back and incur another phone charge for a second session.
Realize that the psychic isn't going to tell you everything you want to hear. Don't get upset if this happens. After you hang up, think about what they've told you, and calmly accept it as their psychic opinion. Take it with a grain of salt, consider it and move on.
