Hi all,

I found a website run by a practising witch Rose Ariadne: www.askroseariadne.com

She offers psychic/common sense advice to people with problems.

Has anybody got any experience with her? Is she genuine or a con artist?

Thanks for any feedback,

Marion

I don't have any experience with her, but then, I wouldn't. I wouldn't seek advice from someone like that, someone I knew nothing about.

In my experience (and opinion), the 'good ones' don't really need a website, or advertising! :wink:

And SOME of them won't charge a dime for their help...

However, you're going to find all kinds of them out there, offering help and advice for a fee. And of course, they all have lots of experience! But how do you really know that what they are saying is true, or that they even have a clue what they are doing?

IMO, divination would be one of the easiest scams in the world to run...So I would be very hesitant to pay out any of my hard earned money to someone that I knew nothing about, or at the very least didn't come to my attention through references.

ETA: Just to clarify...I'm not opposed to paying for services - but I do believe there are alot of scammers out there, just waiting for someone to come along and pay their bills for them!

I just went to the site; it's a nice site. I can't see that she is trying to sell anything at all but that maybe a big 'yet'!! Once you sign up on her site, perhaps you'll get hit with some sales pitches. She obviously has quite a few google ads on her site as well maybe that is her primary revenue source. I read a couple places where she gives good advice and I can't fault with her advice at all. But do be careful, there are so many places on the internet where people can get taken. On the other hand, there are places like Magicka where you have a whole bunch of us looking out for you!!! :D

Thanks guys, that's really sound advice. It's so hard to find out about people because I'm not really part of the "scene", so to speak. I'd love to talk to a psychic but there is just no way I could ask for recommendations where I live - best case scenario, they would wonder about me, worst case, talk about me in the local community and that's not a good thing to happen in rural Ireland... One thing I've learned over the last few months is that if I wish for something hard enough, the opportunity will come find me!

So thanks again, Marion

I don't necessarily believe that any psychic with a website is somehow 'not genuine' or 'not good'. When a person has services to offer, they have to advertise those services - and having a website is a good way to do that, otherwise they would have no way or little way to attract clients. It's true that many websites promoting the services of psychics, etc. are bogus, but they aren't all bogus. It is, as has been suggested, wise to know as much as possible about the person who is offering the services, however - and if the website is there, it will often have a biographical page and a listing of accreditations and training received by the individual, if they have completed any. But communicating with someone in-person is best - and I would most certainly be nervous if that person is unwilling to offer even basic information about themselves or is seeking to charge you a fee to answer basic questions.

Thanks so much, Torey! I've just sent off a mail to her to find out more, but she seems a genuine person (as much as you can tell from a website). Her replies to the queries she receives are certainly sound and sensible, that's gotta count for something :)

I've read some of the advice she gives, and it all makes sense to me; as far as I can tell she at least knows a thing or two about the Craft. I can't say that you should open your arms wide and throw yourself at her, but definitely don't need to assume every little thing is about the money.

I find it amusing and sad simultaneously at how much garbage she gets from people commenting asking her to "teach me black magic" and things like that after she explained what black magick is.

Hi Marion :)

I haven't had any experience with the website you posted but I can recommend another.

http://www.thesleepingstone.com/

I have had personal experience with Maxine, she is a member of the working group I am a member of so I know her well :) Have a look at her website and give her a ring (her number's on there) if you're not sure what you need.

I just wanted to mention that we have a handful of psychics here on Magicka, who, if asked, would probably do a session for you. You don't have to be in the presence of a psychic to have a reading done.
