Online Astro-Clairvoyants: Real Samples of $80 Psychic Readings by "Jenna" and "Norah"
"Jenna" and "Norah": Beyond Their Free Introductory Readings: How Accurate Are They?
Free readings offered by online-psychic entities such as Norah, Jenna, Zoradamus, or Gabriella tempt many people. The free readings are lengthy, very general messages addressing the customer by first name and encouraging the purchase of another, more detailed reading or "guidance." The next reading costs about $50-$80. Most people won't pay it, but some do.
Two Horoscope Review readers forwarded me recent samples of their paid readings, asking me if they were authentic and reliable. They permitted me to summarize the material they paid for. I have added some commentary.
Siddharth's reading from "Jenna"
A man living in India bought an $80 "full reading" from Jenna. He asked me if its astrology was accurate. It said:
"Any competant astrologer has known for months that a major astrological event will soon occur in just a few days time. This event is a Jupiter Retrograde motion which will take place between the 5 January 2012 and the 1 February 2012. This astrological event is one of the most important of the whole year 2012 and it will have a number of important repercussions for many of us. You should take note of the fact that people in India will be particularly affected by this major event."
This is totally inaccurate. Any basic astrology source will say that Jupiter's retrograde motion always lasts for about five months -- never four weeks. And it wasn't in retrograde when Jenna said it was. For an example of how it really works: Jupiter will be retrograde from Dec. 8, 2014 to April 8, 2015. Then it goes into direct motion, the opposite of retrograde, until January 7, 2016, when it again retrogrades until May 9, 2016. Retrograde motion is natural and expected, not a special event, and although it has effects -- usually frustration -- it has no special impact on particular nations.
Jenna said she does calculations on every client, had analyzed Siddharth's situation in depth, and in capital letters warned Siddharth that the retrograde period would affect him directly, more so than it would affect other people. That is false.
Whoever writes "Jenna's" "readings" is a terrible writer. To spare you, I will summarize: Jenna then goes on to say she has done detailed work and calculations on everyone who has contacted her. She informed Siddharth that the retrograde might also bring Siddharth a chance to make very positive and exciting changes in his love life and finances. Because this 27-day period was so important, she advised Siddharth not to let things simply happen but instead take her up on her offer of guidance. He instead wisely chose to get his money back.
For Yasmin: "Your Money and Career"
Yasmin's reading from Norah at premiumastrology.com
Yasmin ordered her "Transit Guide" from Norah at Premiumastrology.com. Yasmin got a link to a web page. Printed out, the message takes up 10 single-spaced pages.
The first three pages introduce Norah as a Certified Empathic Astro-Clairvoyant who has visions of the future and knows the stars and planets. She predicts an important "103-day transit period" for Yasmin. The actual reading begins on page 4.
Norah said she sensed turmoil in Yasmin's finances, maybe because Yasmin is underpaid or has debts, or perhaps Yasmin had not found her true calling; and "There also seems to be a dark veil that surrounds your self-image and sense of personal value." Norah sensed changes and disturbances in Yasmin's second and tenth houses, astrological houses of money and career. She said Yasmin's recent career setbacks and missed deadlines were manifestations of her own frustration. Projected out into the universe her frustrations developed into a vicious cycle of negative energy.
Yasmin, Norah said, was secretly afraid of failure. Her desire to stay in her comfort zone was holding her back, and she must gather the courage to break out of it. She must allow spirit to guide her, and act and speak positively in order for matters to improve and for abundance to reach her. While dining out during work hours, Yasmin might meet someone who can assist her in finding opportunities.
First, know that everyone buying this reading will receive a similar message about an upcoming important "103-day transit."
Norah, "Astro-Clairvoyant," claims she does astrology by intuition. But intuition and clairvoyance (the ability to have visions) play no part in astrology. What Norah sent is not a horoscope or a "Transit Guide" because she mentions no zodiac and no planets. A real astrologer also could and would tell Yasmin the dates her important 103-day "transit" would begin and end. And there is never just one transit. Planets transit the sky continually.
Two items in the reading are astrologically correct. Every horoscope chart has 12 houses. The Second House, or House 2, is indeed the house of money and material worth, the Tenth House the house of career. However, a real career horoscope would describe the effects of Yasmin's natal and transiting planets on her Houses 2 and 10. No chart was given.
The advice given to Yasmin -- the exact same advice you and everyone will get, because Norah is not a person; "she" is a computerized email program -- is not bad or evil; it's just very generic. Who doesn't want more fulfilling, better-paying work? We have all been frustrated. We already know we must act to change our lives. And "Let go and trust in Spirit" is advice you have already heard for free, maybe from your aunt or pastor. Why pay for it?
Yasmin's love life
Norah predicted that Yasmin's "twin soul" would appear the next week, wearing blue or surrounded by blue. But Yasmin must first feel happy with herself and worthy of meeting her twin soul. If not, the Universe will distract the twin soul so they won't meet. (They didn't meet.)
Norah advised writing a daily journal of hopes and wishes and using it as a life plan, and also meditating using Norah's "Power Meditation Manifestation System" program, which wasn't described or included in the reading. She advised Yasmin to start doing what she really wanted to do.
Yasmin was disappointed in Norah's reading and used Norah's money-back guarantee, instituted in 2011 after hundreds of consumer complaints. More complaints followed and Premiumastrology.com was finally shut down in mid-2015.
If You Need to Know Your Future
Please Google the names of Internet "psychics" or "astral advisers" before purchasing their services. All psychics who advertise are fakes. A real psychic or clairvoyant -- they are extremely rare -- will not be soliciting business on the Net but more likely hiding from crowds of potential customers attracted via word of mouth. If you need to hear about your future, consult a local astrologer or Tarot-card reader you can meet in person. Ask around at hotels, spas, coffee shops, health-food and New Age stores: anywhere that many people cross paths.
