Mankind has always been scared of the unknown. Of course, life in itself is uncertain but at least one can say that they are living a normal, routine-based life. This normal, routine existence has been snatched away from us due to the pandemic. People do not know whether they will survive the pandemic or not, how long it will go on, or when a vaccine will be introduced. Combine that with job insecurity and social distancing, and obviously, now humanity is like a drowning man grasping at straws. 
And the straws, in this case, are psychic readings which give the assurance that things will be fine and that everything will be back to normal. Though most businesses have suffered a major downward shift due to the pandemic, psychic readers report an increase in the influx of people wanting their fortunes to be read. Whether it is tarot card reading or horoscope reading, it is one business that is booming. Let us have a look at the reasons why this business is booming during the pandemic. 

Social Distancing

Humans are social animals. We cannot survive alone. We need the company and companionship of our fellow humans. Social distancing has caused havoc in the lives of people. They yearn to be with their friends and family. 

Friends and Family

Many people are habituated to going for outings with friends over weekends. Sleepovers, outings, and get-togethers are a common feature among youngsters today. With social distancing being the norm of the day, all this appears to be like a mirage, a far fetched dream. This obviously leads to frustration, depression, and other mental health issues. In such cases, people turn towards psychics readings to know what is in store for them. 
During the lockdown, the work-from-home culture has surfaced. People are locked in at home with their families, husbands with wives, children with parents. Though this has given families a chance to strengthen their bonds, it is equally true that every individual needs his or her own private space. Being locked in with family for six to eight months at a stretch has robbed people of this privacy. Now it is quantity time where quality is being compromised. Relationships are suffering due to this. What everybody needs is a break from this new normal. This again brings into picture psychic readings which give you an insight into how your precious familial relationships will stand the test of time. 


Most of the romantic relationships have turned into long-distance relationships due to the pandemic. Everybody wants that one special person in his or her life who understands his or her moods and is with them through thick and thin.

Psychic readers claim that many people request readings about their relationships and want to know about the presence of someone special in their life and how things will look like in the future.
