Glossary of Terms & Tools of the Psychic:
Angels: Communication with non-physical beings called Angels and Spiritual Guardians. Those who watch over us, guiding and helping.
Astrology: a system based on position of heavenly bodies at birth. Every planet, asteroid, etc. has it's own properties/influences (physical, emotional, spiritual). Since planets, etc. move about each other in patterns at different, calculable speeds, the astrologer can tell what influences will be prominant at different phases of the life.
Aura Readers: those who view the aura (the energy field which surrounds matter) can see blockages, as well as areas that are too open & lose energy as well as personality traits. Very good for health issues.
Clairvoyant, Clairaudiant: the first is someone who sees images or visions within their mind. The second is someone who hears the answers, perhaps from Spirit Guides or the inner voice which is more attuned to the universe.
Medium & Spirit Communications: those who reach beyond the physical veil to communicate with those considered 'deceased' or simple existing upon a different point in the circle of Time.

Runes: ancient Norse symbols inscribed on stones, tiles or cards, they are used similar to Tarot cards.
Scrying (Crystal Balls): This is a method of gazing into things like quartz crystal spheres, bowls of water, flames, smoke etc. and relaxing the outer sight so that impressions and images can be discerned by the inner sight.
Tarot Cards: There are many forms of Tarot cards (Crystal Oracle, Medicine Cards, Rider Waite, & Thoth are but a few) Basically each card has upon it a symbol, which the psychic uses as a key to focus upon. Tarot in general is excellent for emotional issues.
