how to phrase your tarot question:

what kind of questions work best with tarot cards?


When asking the tarot cards for guidance, there are many different ways to ask a question. Some questions obviously work better (or worse) depending on what kind of a tarot spread you are using. If you are using a "Past, Present, Future" spread for example, a good question might be "Tell me about the past, present and future of _____".


general questions vs. specific questions


Many people find their tarot readings are most successful when they ask general questions like: "What are the forces affecting _____", or "What are the issues surrounding _____". Many experts approach the cards with an even more general strategy asking simply: "Tell me about _____". This approach allows the cards the freedom to offer insight into a wide variety of sub-topics.


While many people tend to ask more specific questions like "Will Catherine get married to Stephen?", "Will I find true love?", "Is my relationship over?" -- the tarot cards don't often respond in direct answers (Although when the future is clear, they sometimes do!).


No one can tell you exactly how to phrase your question. The best approach is to try several kinds of questions and see which works best for the tarot cards and you.
