Charlie Rainbow Wolf

Charlie Rainbow Wolf is happiest when she is creating something, especially if it can be made from items that others have cast aside. Pottery, writing, knitting, and Tarot are her deepest interests, but she happily confesses that she’s easily distracted, because life offers so many wonderful things to explore. Charlie has been reading the Tarot professionally for over two decades, and can't imagine life without it. She is an advocate of organic gardening and cooking, and lives in the Midwest with her husband and special-needs Great Danes.

This month we are going to take a look at why people choose to become psychic readers, and it could get dirty before we're finished! There are many reasons why a person would choose psychic readings as their profession, and not all of them are as reputable as one might think. Take a few minutes to contemplate this; why would you choose to do this for a living?

Many people feel the call to do readings simply because they are fascinated with some kind of oracle or technique, and they want to hone their skills. I personally started out with Jamie Sams's Medicine Cards*, and then progressed from them to stones and crystals, and finally into Tarot. I wanted to read because I was hanging out at a spiritual coffee-shop type place with other readers, and I wanted to fit with them. I'd done some astrology back in the 1970s, in the days before computerized programs, and it was just too much math! I envied those who pulled out a bag of stones or deck of cards and started waxing lyrical to a captivated audience. I wanted to be part of that.

You've been contemplating visiting a psychic reader for ages. You've finally decided to take the plunge. The reader you have chosen comes with a lot of great feedback about her accuracy and how she has helped people. She starts speaking to you... and you just don't connect with her. It's disappointing for you, and for the psychic, but there are some steps that can be taken to insure that you choose the right reader, and that you get the most out of your experience.

This series of articles is going to look at the world of professional readers, from both the client's point of view and the reader's point of view. It will present to you both the good and the bad, and allow you to make an informed choice about the person you choose to do your reading. Education is everything – in more ways than one!

For a start, most people who are really seeking to improve their lives and their circumstances are not going to choose an anonymous psychic from a photo line up on the internet. There are many companies who will offer you free readings, or introductory minutes at special prices, to speak with their psychics. They will let you peruse the psychic's bio before you spend any money. It's all online, though; how do you know who this person really is? Let's look closer at that.
