What’s the difference between a psychic reading and a tarot reading?

Tarot readers use tarot cards as the foundational information for a reading. They refer back to the meanings and symbolism of each card during the entire reading. Psychics, on the other hand, profess to tap into a source of knowledge about the person they are reading for that is outside the material world. Most tarot readers use their intuition during a reading, but this is generally different from psychic work.
