This article will tell you what questions you can ask for a tarot reading. Attention is also paid to when it is best to do a tarot reading.
Types of questions for a tarot reading
Basically, you can ask Tarot any ethical question as long as you are the subject of the question. However, some types of questions do not get a clear and helpful answer. You have to know that Tarot never gives a yes / no, good / bad, black / white answer. Tarot describes a situation. It tells a kind of story. Tarot doesn't make any decisions for you either. It doesn't say what you have to do. It is your responsibility to take into account the advice that Tarot has given you or not. Another point is that Tarot never leads to an inevitable result. During a tarot measurement with certain spreads, tarot indicates the result of a situation. However, this is a result on condition that nothing is changed in the current circumstances. It's up to you to change the circumstances if you don't like the result. In my experience, these are the most frequently asked questions for a tarot reading:
- Questions about developing something This is the type of question you ask if you want to know what the outcome of a particular situation will be. Generally, Tarot gives a clear and helpful answer to this type of question. Most of the time, you will also be given an indication of where there are possible difficulties.
- Questions that ask about the description of a situation When people want to learn more about the background of a particular situation. This is often the case with introspective questions.
- Question about personality Example: "I have problems communicating with other people. Can you explain the background of these problems to me?"
- Questions that ask for advice from Tarot Example: "How should I change to give my relationship a new start?"
The above types of questions are all suitable for a good tarot reading. But often people also ask questions that are not so well suited. These are the types of questions that require a black and white answer from the tarot. Or ask the tarot to make a decision for them. Here are some examples:
- Yes No questions Example: "Do I have a relationship with the boy I met last week?"
- Questions that ask Tarot to make a decision Example: "Where should I go on vacation: to France or Spain?"
- Questions at the time Example: "When can I find a new house?". Tarot will not set strict timing on any subject. Tarot is about descriptions.
Mary K. Greer describes a yes / no spread in her wonderful book "Tarot For Yourself". I never experimented with it. I think that you are missing out on many Tarot options anyway. But if I ever tried it, it would be the spread I use. Incidentally, the result of this spread can be neutral. Of course, people sometimes ask double questions that belong to different types. For example: "Is my love relationship solid and how will it develop?". This is a combination of the situation of a love relationship and the development of the same relationship. A question should always be related to yourself. Never ask anything about someone like, "What is the relationship between my boss and his wife?" A tarot reading would never get an answer to such a question. And it is highly unethical. A tarot reading is also not suitable for purely "materialistic" questions. You shouldn't expect Tarot to give you the lottery numbers or tell you where the Inca treasure is hidden. This does not mean that you cannot ask about material things. If the object is related to you, you may receive a response from Tarot. For example "Where can I find a new house?" wouldn't be a good question. But "What does a new house mean to me?" Could be considered very well.
When should you ask for a tarot reading?
The answer to this question is very simple: if you really feel the need for it. Don't let anyone influence you. And certainly not from an unscrupulous tarot reader. Just listen to your inner voice. Another question is: "How long should I wait between two tarot measurements?" In this case, you can use the following tips:
- In the first place: listen to your inner voice. This overrides everything else.
- Some spreads that are used in a tarot reading offer a kind of interim result. When you have reached this point, you can ask for a read. Note, however, that this result may never be realized if you have changed anything about the original circumstances.
- It's not a good idea to ask for a new Tarot reading on the same subject too quickly. You have to give yourself time to deal with the first reading. Do not hurry. You are not a machine. I myself think you should wait at least 1 month, even 2 months, between two tarot readings on the same subject.
