Foretelling the future is an ancient gift, practised in cultures around the world. Gifted tarot readers, psychics, astrologers, clairvoyants, palm readers, mediums and intuitive advisers who are genuine and have the highest possible level of honesty and integrity are in high demand. Fortune tellers must be effective communicators who convey empathy and understanding. Fortune telling requires a reader to provide advice on love, family relationships, career goals and health in a manner that inspires trust and satisfies a client's quest for knowledge.

Determine whether your state requires a business license to act as a fortune teller, tarot card reader or psychic adviser. Several states require that psychics are properly licensed prior to practicing their craft for economic gain. Although your state may not prohibit fortune telling, city or local ordinances may require an entertainment license or a bond. Fortune tellers should consult a lawyer to examine the local laws that may apply to their employment or business venture.
Create a personal biography that showcases your psychic abilities. If you have had a gift for foretelling the future since childhood, talk about those experiences. Cite examples of your psychic prowess. List any psychic associations or groups in which you are active. The American Association of Psychics and the Association of Certified Psychics are nationwide groups that test a psychic's ability. A membership in either of these organisations provides credibility and connects you to a fellowship of other individuals with proven psychic abilities. Network with other members in your group. Many jobs are found by referrals from associates and word of mouth.
Design a website presenting your biography and inviting clients to contact your and engage your services. A well constructed site, designed without hype or unnecessary fanfare, will clearly convey your sincere desire to help people answer their questions, bring light to darkness and relieve emotional pain. Submit your website to search engines and Internet directories. Advertise your services on Craigslist, Facebook, My Space and E-Bay.
Offer tarot reading at craft or alternative healing fairs and seminars. Visit shops that sell tarot cards and crystals and offer to do readings at their store on a weekly basis. The store will promote these events and charge you a fee to use their space.
Search the Internet for employment opportunities with online tarot, rune or psychic reading providers. There are literally dozens of companies that are seeking qualified and ethical people with psychic abilities. Working for an online company allows you to set your own hours and choose how much you want to work. The company handles all billings to the customer and you are paid an hourly wage. Online readers can make up to £13 an hour.
Tips and warnings
- Avoid psychic Internet positions that require you to pay an entrance fee, purchase supplies or tarot cards, pay for training or require that you retain the caller on the phone for a certain minimum amount of time. There are many legitimate work-from-home opportunities for those seeking employment as a fortune teller; however, the industry is also populated with scam artists.
