Astrology and psychic readings

At first, the connection between Astrology and psychic readings may not be obvious, but the truth is they can work very well alongside each other.


Astrology has been around in some form since man first ventured out of the caves and looked to the heavens. The stars and planets were heavenly bodies beyond his reach; yet they seemed somehow to control his world. 

As particular alignments of the stars were visible at particular times of year and seasonal events (like flowers opening in springtime) occurred, this would reinforce the belief that the stars held mysterious powers. 

Astrological birth signs

In Astrology, it is believed that people born at certain times of the year are affected by the position of the stars at the time of their birth. This alignment is said to influence their moods, their opportunities, and how they approach difficulties that they face in life. This event of astral alignment will affect their future, because opportunities they receive will be dealt with differently, and therefore will have different outcomes. 

For example, a Taurus (anyone born between April 20th and May 21st) has the strength and sometimes the temperament of the Bull: he or she will sometimes charge forward regardless of obstacles and just deal with a situation, with little thinking. However, a Libra (anyone born between September 23rd and October 22nd), will need to keep things balanced in order to maintain emotional harmony. Naturally, enough the zodiac symbol for Libra is a weighing scales. 

Where Tarot meets Astrology

If you go to Our Psychics homepage, you will notice that many of our readers are gifted in a multitude of skills, including Tarot and Astrology. But how can these different divination tools be used together in a reading? 

It’s really quite simple: if a reader is inclined to blend one psychic channel (e.g. Tarot) with Astrology, then the birth sign of the person for whom cards are drawn will have a profound effect on the outcome predicted. 

For example, if the same cards are drawn in a spread for a Taurus and a Libra, they will mean entirely different things – because we are dealing with wildly differing personalities, as defined by astrology. 

What method is best for you?

The good news is that you don’t have to make a decision (unless you really want, that is!). It is through their own experience and expertise built up over the years that our psychics will choose the method that can yield the best results for you. All you need do is choose the psychic.
