Four times you should NOT get a psychic reading… I know what you’re thinking, “Wait, don’t you want me to get a psychic reading? Aren’t readings super helpful, and isn’t that what this blog is all about?”
Well, yes and YES!
Intuitive, tarot, and mediumship readings are an incredibly helpful and powerful tools — when done to empower you during certain times of your life.
Unlike fake psychics (check out how to spot one of those here), true intuitive readers are bound by ethics and only want the best for their clients. With that said, there are four times when you should not get psychic reading, and here they are:

4 Times You Should NOT Get a Psychic Reading
1. Nothing Has Changed Since Your Last Reading
It’s helpful (and fun) to treat yourself to a psychic reading a few times a year to realign and connect with your soul — or make sure you’re on the right path.
I mean, life is full of questions, right…
- Why am I hesitating over something I thought I wanted?
- How can I reconnect with my partner again?
- Will this Netflix show become my new guilty pleasure? (just kidding :))
So, if you are having readings more often than a few times a year, just make sure that you are discussing different topics.
In other words, don’t call a psychic for love advice if nothing has changed with that guy. Wait until there’s been a shift in the relationship and then get another love psychic reading if it’s on your heart.
This will encourage you to trust your own gut feelings and make sure you don’t become dependent on psychic advice (BTW, here are 6 signs that you are addicted to psychics).
Pro tip: At the end of the day, it’s really easy to stay where we’re comfortable and not make any moves. But once you’ve had your intuitive or tarot reading, use your intuition for guidance.
Otherwise, you will stay stuck in this cycle. So go forth, use your free will, and make some positive moves! (Learn how free will changes psychic predictions here. It’s totally fascinating!)
2. You’re Becoming Dependent
Some psychic readers don’t limit the amount of times a client can see them and continue to regurgitate the same advice over and over.
One psychic I met told me that she would give a reading to the same man every day, about the same thing — for months!
The man would promptly arrive at 5:00 p.m. every day for his reading. (If you’re curious, he was an attorney and wanted the psychic reader to predict how he would do in court each next day. So many levels of scary here!)
Though this type of behavior has been normalized on TV shows (like on Friends, where Phoebe saw her psychic weekly), it’s not very empowering.
So, before you pick up your iPhone to chat with your fav psychic, empower yourself by setting an intention for your reading to get to the heart of the issue and empower your socks off!
Your intention could be to:
- Validate a feeling that you are having (yes, I think I’m really in love with that guy!)
- Feel more peace in your heart
- Find clarity about your relationship, career, etc.
And of course, you can never go wrong by setting the intention that the reading is for your highest and best good!
3. If You’re Psychic “Hopping”
This one all comes down to intention. I would never tell you to stick with a psychic that you’re uncomfortable with or don’t feel connected to.
But… if you find yourself on the hunt for a new psychic after every reading or so, do some digging.
Some people just like to mix it up and get psychic advice from different readers just for fun, which is cool.
However, if you find that you’re “psychic hopping” because you can’t connect with any reader, check out these tips or take your time to find a psychic that you really connect with. (If you don’t know where to find a psychic, click here to read which psychics we love.)
Or click here to talk to a psychic reader now from a network that promises it’s customers: “if for any reason you feel your first psychic is not a good match, end your reading and we’ll credit your account up to 5 minutes so you can find someone better suited for you.”
Pro tip: If you’re getting a second, third, and fourth reading just to “double check” the first psychic, it could be a sign that you’re searching for a specific answer rather than the truth.
4. You’re Feeling Suicidal
If you are feeling suicidal, please seek help from a therapist, hospital, or suicide hotline, but NOT from a psychic.
IF YOU ARE AT RISK FOR SUICIDE, HOMICIDE OR OTHER HARM OR INJURY, PLEASE CALL 911 (OR ITS EQUIVALENT WHERE YOU ARE LOCATED INCLUDING 000 IN AUSTRALIA, 999 OR 112 IN ENGLAND AND 111 IN NEW ZEALAND) OR SEEK OTHER HELP (SUCH AS A CRISIS HOTLINE, HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM OR DOCTOR’S CARE) IMMEDIATELY.
In the United States you can receive confidential and free help by calling the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
Psychic Reading Takeaways
It all boils down to this: You have free will and all choices are ultimately up to you!
Psychic advice can be helpful, empowering, and offer you clarity — but never let it distract you from your own intuition. :) And never rely on a psychic or tarot reader to make choices for you.
