What should I ask during a reading?

Getting a tarot reading can be a bit overwhelming if you’ve never had one before, but the biggest question is what to ask! Here are a few guidelines to follow.

  • Keep it specific but open-ended

    • What do I need to know about finding a new romantic partner?

    • How can I overcome my obstacles at work?

    • What positive things can I do to improve my earning potential?

    • Why do I keep having this dream/seeing this sign?

    • What does the future at my current job look like?

  • Don’t ask should questions

    • Tarot is for guidance. Only you can make decisions about what you should do.

  • Don’t ask yes or no questions

    • Sometimes I break this guideline, but in general, yes or no questions are unhelpful at best and upsetting at worst.

    • It’s much more helpful to ask what you can do to impact a situation you want a particular result from. Instead of “Will I find love?” ask “What can I do to bring love into my life?”

  • Don’t ask for whatever comes up

    • A tarot reading needs direction. Yes, big issues in your life may naturally arise during a reading, but to get the most out of it, focus is needed.
