How to do One Card Tarot Readings
What's a question demanding an answer.
What questions ask us to tell the other person what they want to know. It's a simple question and all it requires is a simple answer.
One tarot card gives us one simple answer. So all we need to answer any what question is one tarot card.
Prepare yourself to do a tarot reading.
Prepare your tarot deck.
Ask yourself: What's the most important thing for me to accomplish today? Write this question down in your Tarot Journal or Notebook.
Go through your tarot ritual and draw the one card to answer this question. Pick the card. Write down the name of the card and the meaning of this card in your Journal.
Now answer the question and write out the answer. That's all there is to it.
Here's a few examples from my recent readings:
Q1 - What can I do to find out if he's cheating on me?
A1- Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. The card drawn for your reading is the Four of Pentacles which means to organize your finances.
You can organize your finances, find out where all the money's going. Then follow the money. If you can account for all the money, he's probably not cheating on you. If you can't, then you know he's spending it some place.
Q2 - What can I do to help my son right now?
A2 - Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. The card drawn for your reading is the Page of Cups which means things are as they should be in all his relationships.
The best thing you can do to help your son right now is to recognize he's doing what he wants to be doing and living his life the way he wants to be living it. Realize also that all his relationships are exactly the way he wants them to be. If you do this, that's the best thing you can do to help him right now.
Q3 - What's the best job for me and what's the best place for me to do it?
A3 - Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. The card drawn to answer your first question is the Four of Wands which means organize your intuitive insights.
The best job for you right now is one where you can use your intuition. One where you can organize your intuitive insights to solve problems and help people.
The card drawn to answer your second question is the Nine of Wands which means place of protection.
The best place for you to work right now is a place where you feel safe and protected. Any other place would not be good for you.
Q4 - What's the winning lottery numbers today?
NOTE: When working for a tarot reading site such as the Free Tarot Network, which offers one reading per client, you say something like this: Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. Since we only answer one question, the card drawn to answer your first question is the Four of Wands which means organize your intuitive insights. Then do the reading, say thank you and good-bye.
A4 - Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. If the tarot cards could give me this answer, you know who the winner would be - me. Let's ask what you need to know about the lottery. The card drawn to answer this question is the Six of Swords which means let your conscience be your guide in all your thoughts.
This card is telling you to let your conscience be your guide whenever you make a decision. That's what you need to know about the lottery.
Q5 - What's the problem with my love-life?
A5 - Thanks for asking for this tarot reading. The card drawn for your reading is the Ace of Wands which means new venture.
Evidently you're starting a new venture that's taking up most of your time and energy. That's what's wrong with your love life. You're so busy with your new venture you don't have any time for a relationship. You need to decide what's more important for you right now.
Q6 - What's Shirley doing now that we're apart?
A6 - Thanks for asking for this reading. Tarot cards tell us what we need to know about ourselves. The card drawn for your reading is the Five of Wands which means conflict between people. This is about you and not Shirley.
Evidently you're involved in a conflict you can't seem to resolve. The tarot is telling you to resolve this conflict and get on with your life. It's always hard when relationships fail, but you have to pick up the pieces and pull yourself together. Resolve the conflict and reclaim your life.
You get the idea.
The card drawn always answers the question. It tells us what the client needs to do, what would help the client, what would be beneficial and not harmful. The card tells you exactly What.
Your assignment this week is to ask yourself several What questions and answer them with a one card draw. Write it all down so you have a record. My suggestion is to do one reading each morning and one each evening. Ask any questions you have about any area of your life. Start each question with the word What.
Here's a little secret:
Tarot cards always tell you the truth in all things. If you have any doubts, write it all down and check back later. You'll be amazed to discover what you didn't believe was true after all.
