Are fortune readers psychic? Well it depends. Psychics have the ability to read others. Not all folks capable of giving horoscope forecast are psychics. For some of us, such as me, started by reading cards and use books to be properly guided. As familiarity gets build with the cards and the characters read about, dependency on these materials become less and less. Practice is also required to sharpen the skill in this area.
Whenever folks have problems, one can resort talking to a friend or relative to seek advice or guidance. Although the usual risk is that these sometimes can be used against us or even passed on to people we don't know or common friends. For those of us who have been through this kind of situation, the more it becomes harder to discuss our concerns with close friends or family members.
There are times also when we have concerns on love, career, and finances that we can't discuss to friends and some talk to a psychic to get some external or even an objective insight.
In the US, there are services offered such as those from TeleMedium Phone Psychics where you can discuss your concerns anytime you like. Security and privacy is provided although callers have the discretion of disclosing information that they only like to share.
