A medium is the intermediary between the physical world and the spirit world, rather like a telephone, and their main objective is to prove survival of the physical death. As Gilly says, by linking up to those who have passed over, they are able to convey messages and show that an interest is still being taken in the lives of those they continue to love here on the earth plane.
Someone who tells fortunes, uses tarot cards and the like are psychics, yet they may still have mediumistic gifts too - they are not generally called 'mediums' - but some people do use the term to advertise their services though. ( To me whatever they use to 'divine' with are just tools for concentration, and when a higher source is linked to, then communication can take place too. Spirit will use whatever means are available to get a message across if it is important enough to do so.)
A disclaimer in the Classified section of the Psychic News, reads;
Advertisers should note that a Medium is one that provides evidence of survival as a first consideration and occasionally, seership as second. Advertisers promising seership on its own must do so in the Psychic section. Please note that your full name must appear when advertising in the Mediums section, first names and pseudonyms will not be printed.
