Psychic readings do not have to be expensive to be accurate, informative or helpful. There are several places where you can get both inexpensive and sometimes free readings. When you are getting a reading it is not the price that determines the value or validity of the reading but the reading itself.
Many times a website will take on a new psychic reader who needs to build a reputation and get good reviews. Often these readers will give several special offers of low priced or free readings as a promotional deal. By joining several of these websites, one often can get updates as far who is doing promotions and what they are. Many of them have newsletters and send these out to their members sometimes just when there is news and others on a regular weekly basis. Many of the websites do daily free tarot cards and although these are rather general, as they are tend to be horoscope related than directly pulled for you, they keep interesting. I have a website that I visit regularly, which gives automated card readings. I find the concept fascinating from a technical point of view. There are several sites that can do these readings by an automated program.
Are they accurate? I have no idea. I personally do not feel a connection with them but then I am definitely an energy person. I need to feel that exchange of energy. I need that psychic connection. There are also several places online where you can join psychic groups where they will exchange readings. This is a definite exchange of energy and gives a good feel to the intuition used. Some of these groups already use voice and you can join a room to hear both your own reading and other people’s readings. This is a good way of seeing if you connect well to the reader. Some psychics have their own websites where you can join the group for chat and when the intuitive logs in he or she usually offers free readings to some of the people logged in at that time. These can be extremely interesting in addition as informative and a great learning tool for someone learning about how to read. Do however be careful as not only good people hang around in these groups. Often you will find energy vampires here in addition as they tend to hang out in groups like this.
Spiritual churches are a good source for free psychic readings in addition. The weekly church meeting is often followed by readings. These would be rather randomly chosen as it is up to spirit to decide who will get a reading. If you go regularly you will find yourself getting a reading at some stage.
