How To Ask And Phrase Effective Tarot Questions?
These are 47 effective Tarot questions that you can ask your cards in your own personal readings, or ask a professional Tarot reader.
I know, however, that these questions don’t cover everything! So, I want to give you a few tips in order for you to ask and phrase effective Tarot questions.
You may want to ask the Tarot cards simple yes or no questions. These are great for beginners at Tarot as you get a straightforward answer. However, asking a yes or no question might not give you all the answers that you need.
A lot of Tarot readers do not like to do yes or no Tarot questions as they feel restricted in how they interpret the cards.
So what are the best ways to ask effective Tarot questions?
Ask Specific And Concise Questions
It is really important to be specific and concise when asking Tarot questions. In order to get the answers you need, you must know exactly what questions you need to ask!
Before you go into a Tarot reading, make sure you take enough time to think about what you are wanting to know from the cards.
Spend a while formulating the question in an easy and understandable way. If you are wanting to know about a specific thing, include it in the Tarot question!
Ask Open-Ended Questions
Of course, you might wish to ask the Tarot cards yes or no questions. However, asking the cards open-ended questions will mean that you will get more out of the reading.
In being specific but leaving the question open, you or the reader will be able to delve deeper into the symbolism and meaning behind the cards that are pulled.
Open-ended questions also mean that your mind is open and willing. A big part of reading Tarot cards is to tap into our subconsciousness and spirit. Asking open-ended questions will allow your mind and soul to explore the question that you have asked the cards. These types of questions allow for deep discussion about your life and the universe.
Ask Questions About Yourself
When it comes to Tarot questions, it is super important to keep the questions focused on yourself. It is tempting to ask about other people and what they think or feel, but you may not get the answers you want.
Focus on personal growth and spiritual wellbeing in the questions that you ask in a Tarot reading. This means that you will come out of the reading feeling empowered and ready to take on the world!
Focus On The Present
Tarot reading is all about guiding ourselves into the future and how we are dealing with the present. Therefore, keep your Tarot questions focused on this and not what the future holds.
Of course, you kind of want to go into a Tarot reading and learn everything you can learn about the future. But, Tarot reading doesn’t really work like this. There are secrets of our future that the universe does not want to tell us!
Ask the cards about what you can do now in order to flourish in the future.
What Not To Ask At Your Next Tarot Reading
Now you know what to ask in a Tarot reading, let’s look at things that you really shouldn’t ask in a Tarot reading!
Questions About Mortality
Never ask the cards questions about your own mortality or the mortality of loved ones. Of course, death and life are the most confusing things about the world and it is so hard to get our heads around these huge topics. However, a Tarot reading is not the place to ask these sorts of questions. Never ask the cards when you will die or how long you will live for.
Questions About Other People
Like I said before, keep your questions all focused on yourself and your own personal improvement. Tarot cards are here to guide you, not give you gossip about others!
You may want to ask the cards if your crush likes you back, or if somebody hates you. But, these types of questions are not only unethical, but you might not get the answers that you are looking for!
Questions That You Don’t Want To Hear The Answer To
Sometimes we want to hear the truth, but the truth hurts. If you are not willing and ready to deal with this pain, don’t ask the Tarot questions regarding these topics.
Getting answers that you don’t want to hear will affect your personal and spiritual growth. It will also mean that you come away from the reading upset and angry. This will disrupt your connection with the Tarot and therefore affect your future readings.
Questions About Medical Issues
Of course, general health questions are fine to ask the cards. These can give you an understanding of your overall health and guide you to strength and positivity!
However, you should never ask the cards about specific medical issues. If you need medical help, seek a doctor. The cards cannot diagnose you with health problems.
The Same Question Over and Over Again
If you don’t like the answer the first time around, you may be tempted to ask the same question again. But, this won’t help you at all. If you are not happy with the answer that you received, take time away from the cards to work out what you can do with the information you gained.
You may wish to revisit the question again with the cards, but make sure you wait at least a week.
