My advice would be to stop blindly trusting scans in the forum especially if you get a completely different reading from each scanner in a short period of time.
I say this with no intention to criticize or belittle anyone’s ability, but you have to remember that not all people in this forum are experienced in magick and thus, their skills don’t always suffice to produce an “accurate” reading.
Besides, the scanning thread IS a place for people to exercise their abilities, so it would be best to try and get multiple scans and not just one from a random person who offers a trade.
The same applies with entities. And -here- I will disagree with the popular opinion that you should trust the “higher rank” entities more than the lower beings, again without implying that any of the commenters here said anything like that.
No matter how powerful and respected a person may be, you’d rather have them earn your trust than just take their word for granted. The same applies with entities.
In the long run, a lower entity could prove to be more trustworthy than a more powerful one.
