If you could ask a professional psychic any question in the world, what would you ask?
You might think that with an infinite number of possible questions, professional psychics would actually hear hundreds of different questions a month. It turns out despite the endless possibilities, most professional psychics hear just a handful of the same psychic questions every day.
It turns out despite the endless possibilities, most professional psychics hear just a handful of the same psychic questions every day.
We asked over 20 popular professional psychics on the well-known Oranum online psychic network what their most common psychic questions were. Surprisingly, almost every psychic had very similar top questions in their personal “top 10 questions”. When we sorted by popularity, these were the 5 most common psychic questions.
Pperhaps unsurprisingly, all 5 questions have to do with love, relationships and dating. In fact, you’d have to go down the list to question number 12 before you reach the first question that doesn’t deal with marriage, romance and dating issues.
So if you happen to be a tarot reader or a professional psychic yourself, these are the 5 questions to brush-up your answers on. If you’re not, here’s an interesting insight into humanity and the questions that burn inside all of us:
Psychic Question #1: “When will I meet my soulmate?”
Every psychic we asked told us that the absolute number one question they hear is “When will I meet my soulmate?”
“There’s really no close second”, says online tarot reader Annie Wix, “That’s the question that really tops the list. It’s the question that keeps people up at night far more than you might think”.
Every psychic we asked told us that the absolute number one question they hear is “When will I meet my soulmate?“
With some psychics reporting that as much as 50% of their clients ask this question, the great unknowns of when, where and how to meet one’s soulmate are the clear winners of the bunch.
“It comes as no surprise it’s the number one psychic question.”, says Wix, “The quest for love and romance is easily the most important and powerful drive we have. Other than answers from readers like me, there’s not much guidance available out there for people”.

Psychic Question #2: “Is my partner cheating on me?”
You probably could have guessed that “cheating questions” would be the second most common psychic question. Right after “when will I meet my soulmate” comes, “Is my girlfriend or boyfriend cheating on me?“.
With current statistics on marital infidelity suggesting that 10 percent of spouses cheat annually, it makes sense that psychic questions about infidelity would be ranked number 2. Also, given the fact that men are more statistically likely to cheat than women, it makes sense that women would be more likely to ask this question.
Los Angeles based tarot reader Miranda Marques shared her thoughts on these types of questions with us. “Cheating questions can be some of the most challenging for psychics to answer because part of you really wants to tell your client that everything’s going to be okay”, says Marques. “But if the cards are telling me in clear terms that things are not okay, I tell them exactly what I see. In the end, I think they appreciate straightforward readings.”
Psychic Question #3: “Does my crush love me back?”
Since the dawn of time, men and women have wondered whether their affections were mutually shared, or painfully unrequited. “In the age of the Internet and online dating, these kinds of questions only get more difficult for people”, says Annie Wix. “We’re now living in a world where it’s common for distances to separate people. Communication is less about face-to-face conversation, and more about cryptic text messages and Facebook comments. It creates so many unknowns”, says Wix.
Since the dawn of time, men and women have wondered whether their affections were mutually shared, or painfully unrequited.
“While a lot of psychics work with manifestation and love-spells, I stay away from the ‘hard stuff'”, she says, “I just tell them what I see. Also, today the person asking the question is pining away over someone they met online that they really barely know. In other cases they’ve got a crush on a person they see every day at work. The romantic tension is driving them crazy.”
After asking Wix what her general prognosis was, she said “An in-depth psychic reading can really help. In some cases I can help put things in perspective. In other cases, I can tell them what to work on to make things move forwards. A lot of times I can see a really obvious block that they have.”

Psychic Question #4: “I’m the other woman. Will he leave his spouse for me?”
Thousands of marriage counselors and relationship counselors all over the world would probably answer this question with an off-the-cuff, “No”. After all, the statistics for married partners actually leaving their marriage and subsequently marrying their “side thing” is a painfully low. Just 3 to 5% of cheaters marry their lovers. So at best, the “yes” answer the customer wants to hear has 1 out of 20 chance of being correct.
On the other hand, only 16% of marriages survive an affair when the affair “blows up” and becomes known by the other married partner. So the likelihood of misery for everyone involved is high.
Statistics aside, this is an extremely common question precisely because men and women who cheat are good at deceiving the other man or other woman. Tarot cards and pendulum readings aside, the answer to clients asking this question is almost always “No. They’re not leaving their spouses for you“.
Of course, plenty of less reputable psychics are in the business of telling customers what they want to hear.
Psychic Question #5: “What can I do to get my crush to love me?”
This question has a lot of variations like, “What’s holding me back in my pursuit of my crush“, “What am I doing wrong in my relationship” and other subtle variants of the same theme. The premise of course is that the problem is you, and not your crush.
In some cases, there really are mental blocks which keep us away from our dreams. Self-image issues, baggage from our past and wrong approaches can all keep the flame of love from ever getting lit. In other cases though, the unfortunate reality is “Your crush just isn’t that into you“.
Still, in the event that your crush is into you, and you’re just fumbling it, a little psychic insight can go a long way.

Why are relationship questions the most common psychic questions?
It’s notable that all 5 of the most common psychic questions are relationship and dating questions. There’s a good reason for the popularity of relationship questions and that’s because love and interpersonal relationships are areas that we have very little control over. Not only do very few of us have control over our hearts, we have even less control over the feelings and actions of others.
There’s a good reason for the popularity of relationship questions and that’s because love and interpersonal relationships are areas that we have very little control over.
“It’s because we’re all powerless when it comes to love”, says Miranda Marques. “Even if we know exactly what we want, we’re not able to just snap our fingers and make it happen. So we spend days, weeks and sometimes years in a state of hope. It’s an area where a good psychic reader can make an enormous impact on someone’s life and hopefully help them to a much better place.”
What questions should you ask in a psychic reading?
There’s nothing wrong at all with asking a professional psychic or tarot reader any of the above questions. Most people do. They’re usually “opener questions” though, or the questions that people ask when they first visit a psychic.
The far more interesting questions (and insights) typically come after a few visits to the same psychic. Visiting a psychic is a bit like visiting a therapist: There’s only so much insight and personal growth you’re going to get from a single visit. After several visits though, you’ll start to get a deeper understanding, and a more detailed mental picture of what your issues are — and what lies before you.
Nobody can (or should) tell you what kinds of questions to ask your psychic. You should ask what you’re yearning to know, but can’t know through conventional means.
In most cases, your questions will evolve over time to become more interesting, insightful and ultimately more meaningful.
Besides relationship questions, what are some other common psychic questions?
When we did our psychic survey and asked professional psychics what the most common questions were, the more interesting questions started at around number 10. These less common questions include questions about deceased loved ones, childhood trauma, inner fears and greater spiritual fulfillment.
Don’t know what to ask a psychic? (Most of us don’t visit psychics until we have something we definitely want to ask. But some of us want to talk with a psychic just to test the waters). Some things to think about before you visit a psychic are:
- Are there any things that you can’t remember clearly that you wish you could?
- Are there events in your past that you didn’t understand?
- Are there past relationships that you never felt closure on, and wish you did?
- Are there recurring dreams you’re seeking insight and understanding on?
- Are there professional issues that you wish you understood better?
- Are there aspects of yourself that you feel hold you back somehow?
Thinking about these things before your visit might give you some ideas of things you’d like to explore. “In many ways, thinking about what to ask a psychic before your meeting is therapeutic in its own way.”, says Marques, “But it’s not necessary to have a question at the ready at all. Most good psychics are happy to start with a blank slate and help you explore.”
