7 Real-Life Psychic Predictions That Were Accurate AF

Pretty much anyone who goes to a psychic is looking to get real, precise insight into their lives. Whether you want to know what new and exciting events will happen in the future, a peek into your love live, a nudge about a career move or a tip about what will happen to your loved ones, if you’re seeing a psychic, you hope you’ll receive information that is right on target. And while some readings may be vague, some readings are so accurate, they literally predict your future. Scroll through to read these seven stories that that are so on-point they’ll give you the chills (and have you calling your favorite psychic stat).

He Predicted I’d Fall for a Tattooed Sailor

“Many years ago, I was dating a gentleman who was amazingly psychic. He told me I would remarry in my 50s. I told him in no uncertain terms that I wouldn’t. He insisted that I would marry a man with a tattoo on his hand and that he would be a sailor. I laughed thinking this was his unusual way of asking me out, because he was a former Marine and had a tattoo and the only man I knew with one at the time.

Sad to say this gentleman and I broke up but I started to date again. I joined an online dating site and had been speaking with a man on and off for six months before we agreed to meet. When the evening came to a close, this guy took my hand and kissed it.  I almost fell over. As he took my hand in his—I noticed an eight-pointed star on his hand. I asked what the tattoo was for and he replied he had done it to himself when he was kid. The star is the ancient symbol that would identify a sailor. I was 52 when we wed.” — Tammey

She Warned Me About a RunIn With a Bear

“I had a reading where the psychic warned me about a bear. She said she saw a vision and signs from guardian angels. I also had recently had a vision that while I was at the fridge, I saw a bear approaching my five-year-old daughter in our yard. We hadn’t had any bear visits that year yet so, I thought to myself, where did that come from? About four hours later it came true. A bear came from the same direction as it had in my vision and my daughter was standing in the exact same spot! Very scary and thankfully we were all safe but the psychic was right on!”  Tammy

She Predicted a Family Reunion

“I’ve had a couple of good readings, but one in particular stands out. I am adopted, and I a psychic told me that in my late 30s, my biological sister would start looking for me. When I was 39, she found me and I was reunited with my biological family, including two brothers, a sister, both parents the day after my 40th birthday.” — Denise

She Predicted My First Two Jobs

“When I was younger we had a family psychic—my mom was really into that stuff. Over the years, I wouldn’t pay attention to most of the stuff she said, but looking back, two of her predictions about my first jobs were right on. She said you’re going to drive very far for a new job, but you’re not going to like it. My first corporate job was a long drive, and I hated it. Then she said, you’re going to work for an Asian company and travel a lot. About six years later, I got a job for a Korean shipping carrier—pretty specific when I had no plans to work for the company years before.” — Antonio

He Told Me About a Career Change

“Around a year ago, I saw a psychic who insisted that she saw a career change on the horizon for me. I worked in a creative field at the time and she kept coming back about how I would soon be working in tech, particularly something related to a ‘new’ technology like blockchain. I brushed it off. But lo and behold, a few weeks later I was laid off, and then, through a friend, secured a freelance assignment writing about blockchain and cryptocurrency a few months later. It didn’t dawn on me that the psychic was right until a few weeks into the new gig!” — Blair

 

She Told Me I’d Write a Book

“I decided to speak to a spiritual medium and healer to help overcome my immense sadness from the sudden passing of my mother on the day after my birthday in 2009. As I was leaving, she handed me a paper with the name and number of an editor on it. When I asked why she was giving me this, she said, ‘You are going to write a book, and you’ll need her to edit it for you in order to sell it to a publisher.’ At that time, I had been thinking about writing a cookbook, but had never told anyone about it. I actually thought it was a crazy idea and that no one would take me seriously, since I didn’t have a professional cooking background or career. Three years later my cookbook was published and am now in the process of writing my second book.” — Josephine

He Predicted My Boyfriend Would Reunite With His Ex

“Though I had total confidence in my psychic, with one early prediction I crossed my fingers that he was wrong. The psychic predicted that the guy that I had been dating would break up with me and go back to his ex-wife. My then boyfriend and I talked about the prediction and even laughed about it saying that it could never happen. Eventually, however, my ex went back to his ex. After we broke up, the guy even had the guts to ask me what else the psychic had predicted about him and his ex-wife! The nerve! I’m still irritated about that.” – Catherine

'Are Horoscopes Real?': All Your Astrology Questions, Answered

Some of us giggle over our daily horoscopes on the way to work, while others continuously read them just to see if they “come true.” And then there are those who get a full natal chart reading and faithfully check their horoscopes on the daily. Based on this, they might also check compatibility reports for potential friends and lovers, and even plan major life events according to how the planets are aligned.

Whatever type of horoscope-checker you are, you’ve probably wondered how exactly a horoscope is even made and whether there’s any truth to it. Well sit tight, because we’re about to answer all your questions.

Read This Now: Calculate Your Birth Chart

Is There Any Truth in Horoscopes?

The word “horoscope” comes from the Greek word “horoskopos,” which literally means “a look at the hours.” Early astrologers in ancient Babylonia based their predictions on the movement of the planets, which at that time were thought to represent the activity of their five gods—Marduk representing Jupiter, Ishtar representing Venus, Ninurta representing Saturn, Nabu representing Mercury, and Nergel representing Mars—in combination with the Moon-god Sin and the Sun-god Shamash, whose movements were believed to affect what was happening on Earth.

Can Horoscopes Predict the Future?

As knowledge of astronomy and the world has evolved, the art of astrology has evolved as well; these days, the charting of planets is very thorough if done by any professional astrologer. Because of that, using astrology to interpret potential life events is very real indeed.

How Do Horoscopes Work?

Surely you know your sun sign (hint: it’s the typical answer to that “What’s your sign?” question.) But to learn about your other signs (and yes, you have more), astrologers will need to know more than just your birthday.

To write the most in-depth horoscope possible, astrologers require the date, time, and location of your birth. When we have this information, we are able to place your sun sign on the first house of an astrological chart, then follow the signs in order for each house thereafter, thereby determining what types of issues may affect you at any given time. By looking at the position of the planets, we can study your chart’s aspects and determine whether or not you will have a challenging day, month, year, or if the aspects are lining up in your favor.

What Are Planetary Aspects?

The detailed theory of planetary aspects is quite complex, but in a nutshell, when there is a connection formed between planets that are associated by some degree in the zodiac, they are referred to as “aspects.”

When the planets occupy the same degree of different signs in a chart, they have a connection that is referred to as either harmonious or challenging, depending on the signs involved or the number of degrees separating the planets.

The major aspects commonly referred to are the “conjunction,” which is zero degrees and is considered the strongest blend of two energies; the “opposition,” which is 180 degrees and considered a very challenging aspect; the “square,” which is 90 degrees and largely represents conflicting energies; and the “trine,” which is 120 degrees and considered to be an easy and beneficial connection.

Do Planetary Aspects Affect Signs the Same Way?

When it comes to astrology, nothing affects any two individual people in the exact same way. The planetary aspects have different effects in general, and as we apply these to peoples’ sun signs, the aspects affect each sign differently.

For example, in the Sun square Mars aspect, Mars is the planet of drive and determination, and the square aspect denotes difficulty in this area, so in general, people with this aspect in their chart may have problems with others getting in their way, so the lesson in their life may be to face challenges head-on and be willing to jump hurdles to get what they want.

So, does this aspect affect a naturally headstrong Aries differently than a more introverted, sensitive Cancer? Absolutely! We can see a lot less frustration ahead for the Ram than for the Crab, as overcoming obstacles comes much more naturally to an Aries than it does a Cancer.

Okay, But Sometimes My Horoscopes Don’t Come True—What Gives?

Horoscopes are great tools to use as general guidelines for living, not predictions to be followed to a T. In order to write the most detailed and in-depth horoscope possible, an astrologer needs to have a person’s birth date, time, and location. Because it isn’t possible to have all of that information for every person, most horoscopes are written with a more general audience in mind. Most daily horoscopes are written by using sun signs based on the position and effect of the Moon.

The Moon changes signs every two to three days, which in turn affects our moods and emotions, so daily horoscopes are written based on where the Moon is, and how that will generally affect each sun sign on that day. Monthly horoscopes can add sun signs crossed-referenced with planets that change every month or the course of several months, namely Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Sun. Yearly horoscopes include slower moving planets such as Saturn and Jupiter, and longer-term horoscopes are based on the movements of Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus, which can take many years to move through one sign.

How Can I Use My Horoscopes in My Life?

When you have a decision to make, do you only listen to one person, or consult one source? Probably not.

By reading your horoscope, whether it’s daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly, you can get a glimpse into what your world will be like from a planetary perspective, and you can use this information as a tool to help guide and motivate you.

Horoscopes can help you open up your mind to new possibilities, as well as options that you may not have considered, and as long as you approach reading your horoscope with an open mind, you can let the planets be your guide to all that is possible.

Are Pet Psychics Real? I Tried One and I'm Legit Convinced for Life

Are Pet Psychics Real? I Tried One and I'm Legit Convinced for Life

What dog owner hasn’t looked at their pet and wondered what exactly is going in their head? As a bit of a helicopter dog mom (I fully admit it), I’ve often wished that I could get a bit more intel about what my three-year-old rat terrier, Sonny, is thinking. Does he hate getting dropped off at doggie day care? Does he spend the day sad while my husband and I are at work?

That’s why, when a pet psychic named Constance Frankenberg reached out to me via a work contact to offer a reading for my dog, I jumped at the chance. Of course, I mostly believed it was for fun, but if I got a bit of legit pup insight, that wouldn’t hurt, either.

The Pet Psychic Reading Process

Since Constance lived far from where I live in New Jersey, we went with a virtual reading. I snapped a photo of my dog where his eyes were clearly visible and then came up with a list of questions for my pet with the help of my husband. We came up with questions that ranged from how our dog would feel if we got another pet to if he had any health concerns we should know about. I joked about whether or not Sonny’s “voice” had a Jersey accent too, then shot the questions off into cyberspace.

The Psychic Reading We Received for Sonny, Our Rat Terrier

During the next morning’s commute, I was surprised to see, I had an email with all the answers to my questions. And as I read through Constance’s responses, my mouth fell open.

One of the first questions we asked Constance was if Sonny liked his dog walker. Constance described both our wavy-haired male walker and our blonde female walker physically and maintained that our dog liked the latter better (which to be honest, I had always suspected). “She is more attentive and he feels more special,” she said.

Regarding Sonny’s health concerns, the psychic also detailed quirks about my dog that no amount of Googling could have uncovered: like how he has a bit of myopia and has a hard time judging distance or seeing objects, and how he likes to graze rather than eat his food quickly to avoid tummy troubles.

I was amused to read that Sonny communicated that he would be okay if we got another dog or had a child. The psychic also gave serious warnings of his real fears, warning us to never punish him by locking him in a dark room (which obviously I would never do, but it broke my heart thinking about the trauma he had dealt with before we rescued him.)

Finally, Constance said Sonny had a warning for me to be careful when I walked near busy roads. She wrote, “What worries him most is when you are not home and he does not know where you are and he makes a strong point that he does not want you texting or on the phone when you are walking him or driving someplace on a busy road or freeway that you regularly travel.”

It made the hair on my arm stand on end. After a serious collision of my own and losing a close friend who was hit crossing the street, car accidents are one of my biggest fears.

My Thoughts on Pet Psychics Now

I know pet psychics sound kooky, spammy, and weird. But at the end of the day, what initially started out as a fun exercise, turned into a deeper moment to reflect on all the ways my first dog and I take care of each other.

Getting to “connect” with Sonny gave me a fuller understanding of how to make him feel safe, loved and happy. And really, that’s the least I could do for all the endless tail wags, face licks, and puppy cuddles he’s given me.
