How to Approach a Tarot Reading

Tarot is a divination and a guidance tool which originated way back in the 15thcentury in Italy. Even though the word ‘divination’ means ‘to foresee’, tarot (or tarot card predictions) is not a prediction system, but rather a guidance system. Depending on the guidance that is given to the seeker, they can then make the most appropriate free choices in the given situation so as to achieve the most appropriate outcome.
Tarot is a structured system and a tarot reader will choose a deck and/or a spread depending on the subject of the question or person for whom the reading is being done or any other influence at the time of the reading.
Tarot Cards Prediction: What To Keep In Mind During A Session

  • If you ask a vague and general question, so too will be the answer!
  • Any question about another person’s life or choices will never return an accurate answer, as you see it from your view and this may not necessarily be the situation at hand. For example, in the case of a “In love Tarot” (or tarot card reading for love), if a question like ‘Does that person love me?’ is asked.
  • Avoid asking ‘Does that person hate me?’. It is an inappropriate question as hate is such a strong word and an answer to such a question will be quite dis-empowering.
  • Avoid asking ‘Should I…’ type of questions as it shows that you’re refusing to take the responsibility of your choices and your life. Timing questions such as ‘When will I get a promotion?’ is a big no-no because nobody can predict the future!

It is good to rephrase the questions when you find yourself in a situation as stated above.

Hints on How To Frame Questions During A Tarot Cards Session

Below are examples of an ideal way to frame your question when getting a tarot card reading done

  • What do I need to know about…?
  • What do I need to do to achieve…?
  • What is standing in the way and how can I best overcome this?
  • How can I improve my ability to…?
  • What role do I play in so-and-so’s life/issue?
  • What do I need to change in order to…?
  • What is the potential for…?

Don’t forget, ‘The art of asking questions is the source of all knowledge.’
