Asking the question

Which type of question works best for tarot readings?

Questions with only yes or no for an answer are not the best questions for a tarot reading. An example is, "Should I apply for that position?"

A tarot reading also differs from a brainstorming session in that, instead of a list of possible solutions, we want to explore a problem by trying to understand it, and then find a solution.

Tarot readings work best with open questions, where options are possible.

Here are examples of questions that would work well for tarot readings, and can be adapted for most situations:

  • Why …?
  • Why is this happening?
  • What do I need to know right now?
  • What do I need to know about …?
  • What do I need to understand about …?
  • What is the best way to approach …?
  • What do I need to learn from …?
  • What have I learned?
  • What is my role in …? / How did I contribute to …?
  • What underlies …?
  • What is the meaning of …?
  • How can I improve …?
  • How can I help resolve this question?
  • How might I …?
  • Give me insight into …
  • What if?
  • What do I need to accept?
