The tarot cards hold special meanings, warnings, characteristics and actions that may need to be taken in order to change your course in life. Keep in mind that some aspects are changeable and some are not. It is all up to you. With the High Priestess card as the tarot card for the week of 6-2-13, this is the week to trust your intuition and pay attention to your gut feelings on all matters. You might be surprised that you have hidden psychic abilities. This week is also not the time to hide your feelings and emotions. You must put your fears aside. You may be asked to help others with their problems. Just be sure to keep yourself well-balanced and in tune with your spiritual side. Meditation will help you do that and may give you some answers you seek. Trust in your inner self and have faith — things will work out. Look out for a superficial individual who may not have your best interests at heart. Be careful not to divulge any personal information to the wrong people. You must remain on your toes this week and keep watch for hidden agendas and secrets from people who you think are trustworthy.
MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 2
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: VIRGO, MOON, VENUS
The High Priestess card symbolizes your own power and intuition. There is something hidden that will be revealed. Certain things psychically have not been revealed yet. Trust your own abilities — knowledge, intuition and psychic powers — to find out what is coming your way. You will become aware of unseen truths, hidden dangers, untapped potentials and spirituality. You are passive by nature; however, you possess the power to uncover great possibilities. You are extremely patient and will wait for events to blossom in their own time. This card insists that you must trust your intuition and psychic abilities. By using these energies and abilities, you will be able to gain the answers to many of your own questions.
In the reversed position, the High Priestess card can signify a hidden agenda, a lack of compassion or selfishness. It can also reflect that you only rely on surface and superficial knowledge — not your intuition. You lack the ability to understand situations as they appear. This card may also indicate there is an individual around you who does not have your best interests at hand. This may be someone who is very close to you. You or someone else may be abusing psychic abilities to manipulate a situation or to hurt another person. Beware of false prophets.

It is very important to know the different types of psychics and psychic readings that are available to you before you make a choice. Psychic readings are divided into two groups — structured and unstructured. A structured reading involves the use of divination tools such as tarot cards; the lines, bumps and markings on your palms, head and other parts of the body; rune stones; I-Ching coins; tea leaves; astrology birth charts; and numbers, to name a few, to give information and answers about your career, relationships and past, present and future events in your life. Some people who are not true psychic mediums do perform these readings and are extremely accurate and knowledgeable. And many courses are available that can teach you these different divinations; however, a more in-depth reading will be accomplished if given by an individual with true psychic abilities.
In an unstructured reading, the psychic medium relies on his or her psychic gifts to reveal information about your feelings, emotions and relationships. They also have the ability to connect with people who have passed, as well as with people who are currently playing an important role in your life. When getting this type of reading, it is usually best to have a specific question in mind or some past, present or future issues that need resolving. This is the highest form of psychic mediumship and is known as evidential psychic mediumship. The medium will be able to give you specific names, dates and details that only you or someone in your family would know. Also, some are able to read animals’ thoughts and connect with animals who have passed. Someone who is not truly a psychic medium will not be able to give an accurate unstructured reading.
Another type of psychic ability associated with an unstructured type of reading is that of a psychic/spiritual healer. The work of a psychic healer can be described as viewing a person through the psychic’s mind’s eye and looking at people’s energies with respect to their chakras, auras, physical organs and overall health. A psychic senses and identifies where someone’s energy needs unblocking. To do that, some psychic healers associate themselves with one or more guides, calling on their angels, spirit guides and a Divine power for assistance in their work. Because these assistants are not in the physical world, they can aid in obtaining a higher consciousness and ability, which helps the psychic to rebalance a person’s free-flowing energy and accelerate their healing.
Some people attribute the healing that may take place during a psychic healing session as merely a “placebo effect.” Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines the placebo effect as “the improvement in the condition of a patient that occurs in response to treatment but cannot be considered due to the specific treatment used.” In other words, if you believe you can be healed, the healing occurs. Psychic healers have healed many individuals and have done so without using conventional medical treatments. Whether the healing is a placebo effect or not, some documented results from these healings have been miraculous and unexplainable. Keep in mind that any psychic healings should be used in tandem with the current conventional medical options that are available for the specific ailment or disease.
Some common terms used to describe types of psychic abilities are clairalience (the ability to smell scents from the spirit world or from those who are not physically nearby); clairaudience (also known as “clear hearing,” the ability to hear words, sounds and voices from the spirit world); clairgustance (the ability to physically perceive tastes without tasting anything); clairsentience (the ability to sense or feel the presence of those who have passed or to sense the auras and vibrations of all living things); and finally, the most notable of the clairs, clairvoyance (also known as “clear seeing,” the ability to mentally see through the mind’s eye, spirits or people who have passed on. It also refers to the ability to obtain information about a person, place or event without the use of the five senses).
When choosing a psychic, do not be afraid to ask questions about the psychic’s abilities in advance of the reading, especially if you do not have a personal recommendation. Before you sit down with a psychic, remember the expression “Buyer Beware.” Unfortunately, as in every business, there are those who will take advantage of people that are showing any signs of desperation. You should be comfortable with your choice — trust your gut instincts. Some readings can be entertaining and some can be quite healing and comforting.
Through the investigative research efforts of Psychic Library, we have found that a large percentage of the structured readers we randomly contacted or visited were accurate in the use of their specialized divinations. Some of the readers had special psychic abilities and intuition that embellished and enhanced the readings the Psychic Library team received. However, the unstructured readers who were claiming to possess some form of psychic mediumship abilities did not deliver what they promised. In most cases, our expectations were not met. Instead of providing concrete evidence, these would-be psychic mediums were asking our team of researchers to give them information, even though they were in fact claiming to be in touch with the spirit world. For example, rather than giving information about one of the team members health problems, the psychic asked “do you have any health problems you want to discuss?” It seemed that for the most part, our team received cold readings and not true evidential psychic readings. Keep in mind, there are very qualified psychic mediums and intuitive counselors available to you. However, do try and seek out a psychic medium who has been recommended by someone you trust or who has had an accurate, helpful or healing reading.
Hopefully this gives you a better understanding of what to look for when contacting a psychic, whether it is online, at a psychic fair or a bookstore.

Precognition is the ability to actually perceive or see a future event through extrasensory perception (ESP) or clairvoyance, before it happens. The term is derived from the Latin præ, meaning “prior to” and cognitio, meaning “to learn.” Precognition is often confused with the terms premonition or prophecy, which only relate to a feeling of or sensing that something will happen in the future.
Precognitive events usually appear to individuals as a flash or spontaneous vision — when, in an awakened state, a person receives a short intense mental scenario. One example of this would be that of a mother who is driving in her car and sees a vision of her child injured at a playground. She quickly turns the car around to find her child about to fall from a tall tree. Another example would be of a person who is about to board an airplane and has a vision of a crash that is so intense that he decides not to board the plane. He finds out later that there was in fact a plane crash.
Some people experience precognition through dreaming. A future incident is vividly played out in the dream, thus allowing the ability to predict something will happen or to avoid an upcoming situation altogether.
In studying precognition, it has been found that most of the predicted events happen within a short time frame. In 80 to 85 percent of the time, the events involve a loved one, family member or close friend. The rest of the events fall under the category of individuals who are unrelated, i.e., strangers or public figures.
Joseph Banks Rhine and Louisa Rhine performed extensive studies of precognition in the Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke University in the 1930s. The psi phenomenon of precognition is still being investigated today by parapsychologists.
