Sometimes the psychic will use the chat room to give a free sample reading on request. Using chat rooms can give you a chance to decide which psychic you would be interested in seeking psychic advice from. Psychic readings can address specific issues, or respond to a specific question, or be general readings covering an area such as career or love.
Bereavement, or communication with the dead, is dealt with by psychic mediums who can work online or through Spiritualist churches or private sittings. Meetings at Spiritualist churches tend to be fairly cheap, and could be a good way of seeing a medium in action if you have never visited one before and are unsure what to expect. Mediums often do question and answer sessions at these meetings so it may be a chance to find out more about how they work.
Some websites give free tarot readings. The cards are generated automatically while you focus on a question you want answered - you will get an interpretation which you need to apply to the question yourself. Free tarot readings tend to involve a small spread of fewer cards, or even just one card, rather than the larger spreads that are used for a personal sitting with a tarot card reader.
Other free psychic readings can use:
It may be possible to get a free psychic reading at psychic fairs where a vendor may give you a ten minute sample reading and then you can book for a full reading.
Astrology sites, which sell reports on past lives, karma, ideal partner etc, usually give sample readings and then you can pay for the fuller, more detailed reading.
