Getting a psychic reading can be one of the best things that you can do when you need some advice in life. Taking it upon yourself to go out and seek the wisdom of the Tarot isn’t hard, but sometimes shelling out the cash that it takes to get there is. For those psychics that are gifted in their field and/or practice a variety of methods well can charge hundreds of dollars per hour just to give you a reading. Luckily, a higher price tag doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a more accurate reading. For most, yes, they charge justly, but for others it may also have to do with reputation. If you’re okay doing some digging you can get a reading on a sliding scale and save yourself a lot of cash. Here’s how and why:
Why Do They Do It?
Sliding scale psychic readings seem like an odd thing. This isn’t medical or an emergency, so what’s the deal? The thing is that everyone has to get their start somewhere. There are definitely established psychics who simply do charity work and offer their services at a reduced cost, sometimes even for free. But more often than not you’ll find that psychics who are trying to open their own business or gain followers for their new establishment are the ones who offer sliding scale. They want to get you into their reading room as fast as possible, and sometimes that means giving things away (like their time) for way cheaper than it should be. Keep in mind that these sliding scale fees are liable to change at any moment, so keep in contact with your reader and make sure that they’re still going on.
How to Get It Free
Free readings tend to be reserved for those that the psychic feels would truly benefit from a reading. They get a feeling that it’s important that you consult the forces that guide them. Otherwise you may have a dire financial situation that needs help. Talk to your psychic openly and see if you can get a free reading. Just remember: don’t abuse this. If you’re in a jam and you need advice as soon as possible then ask for this. Otherwise, be alright with paying a little bit of money. These people do have to work, after all.
Normally the lower end of a sliding scale ranges from $10-$25. Even a $30 charge wouldn’t be bad at all. For some this is what they charge per hour while others use it for a per-reading fee. This is more common than not, so expect to pay that every time they use a new spread. Using this method of payment is definitely a money saver since you get multiple readings at the same price, if the psychic is selling it in such a way.
