I have been reading Tarot Cards for many years and clients most commonly consult the Tarot when they have a particular situation that is problematic, upsetting or confusing. With this in mind I have a written a guide to help you understand how to get the best from your reading with the type of questions you ask.
Spend some time thinking about what you want to ask. Think about the situation, any possible outcomes or consequences. By gaining a better understanding of your situation and wording and appropriate question the Tarot can then respond in a way that should bring great insight.
The reading is all about you, the person asking the question. You have things on your mind that you want to ask about and you should be able to ask whatever you want. It's your reading after all. Give your question some thought before you have a reading, because the more thought you put into it, the more you will get out. Remember not to make your question vague, as in doing so you will probably receive a vague answer.
Effective questions should be of a positive nature in order to attract constructive insight. Ask how to create something in your life rather than focusing on any negatives.
Here are some of the best ways to ask questions:
A reading about choices you are aware of can help you sort through the issue and decide what is right for you. It can empower you to make the best decisions for yourself. Don't go into a reading with the mindset that you want the cards to tell you what to do. The Tarot can help you explore your choices, but it is not designed to tell you what choices to make. That part is up to you!
Be realistic with your questions: Open questions: - by this I mean a question beginning who, what, where, why, when or how. These kinds of questions allow the Tarot to give you more information.
Make Sure Your Question is a Question! It is all too easy to get carried away when writing about the background to a situation and then forgetting to actually ask a question!
A Tarot reading uses a lot of energy and takes place within a certain amount of time and so it can help to focus on just one or two key questions rather than five or ten!
I hope that has helped you to see the importance of a good question. You can ask whatever you want, however you want, but if you relax and think a bit, the results are usually better. If you do happen to ask a question in a way that is not the most ideal question formation . . . the Tarot will forgive you! It won't be the end of the world. Asking good questions can take a bit of practice.
