When it comes to a tarot card reading, one of the most frequently asked questions I receive is, what does a tarot card reading tell you. There is a lot of misconception about tarot readings and today I want to clarify things, to help create a healthy positive mindful connection with tarot card readings.
What does a tarot card reading tell you?
Tarot cards can tell you about your past, present and future. They can give you an insight into your life, any challenges you are facing, relationships and so much more. A tarot card reading can tell you stories about your life, showing you all you need to know about tackling certain situations, a person you know and so on.
To get an accurate tarot card reading, it is essential to ask the right questions of the tarot cards, so they have all the information they need to tell you what they want you to know.
How to get the right answers from your reading
For a tarot reading to be incredibly useful and constructive, it is essential to ask the questions in the right way.
For example, if you ask “Will I ever find love?” and then you draw the card of the High Priestess, who is represented by a nun with a book in her hand, you may get depressed thinking of being condemned to eternal solitude.
Instead, if you asked, “What can I do to find love?” and you got the same card, the High Priestess, the advice would be, to stay behind the scenes and don’t throw yourself into the fray. Observe any possible partners from afar, before revealing your feelings or putting yourself on the line.
Not when… How?
Don’t ask when something you care about will happen, but instead, ask the cards what you can do to make it happen. Knowing that in six months you will find the home of your dreams, would not simplify your life, but it could make your life hell, because you would risk making a decision based on the reading you had earlier and it may result in you buying the wrong house.
On the other hand, understanding what is in your power to do, can really make you focus on working effectively in preparing and working towards the realization of your goal.
Ask for useful things
Expecting that a tarot card reader can guess specific things about you is a waste of time. You already know these things, so why waste your time and money? Rather, tell the reader details of a situation, ask what the best strategy would be to face that situation.
A tarot reading can be a very personal experience. When I do a reading, the less you tell me, the better. I don’t want to risk being influenced by my personal judgment. A few details are enough, so then let the tarot cards take over.
Don’t be obsessive
Insisting on pounding the reader with unnecessarily questions on the same matter is of little use.
These are questions to try to avoid asking. How did the interview go that I just had? What does the HR manager think of me? What impression did I make on the sales manager? What day will they call me to tell me that they are hiring me? Why did they ask me if I can play the guitar? Will I feel comfortable with colleagues?
Here is why. It is to avoid the risk of being lynched by those who read your cards, that’s why it is better to keep things generalized. “I had an interview last week, what can the results be?”.
You will see that all the important answers will still surface without you asking them. It is better to have a reading BEFORE the interview. The tarot cards can give you valuable advice.
Ask, what’s the best strategy to take
If you are experiencing unpleasant situations in any field, instead of asking how it will turn out, ask rather what you can do (and not do) to improve things. Tarot cards are wise and generally give advice keeping in mind of a person’s feelings.
Compare two options
If you are undecided between two options, ask the tarot for an analysis of the pros and cons. Cards can help you weigh all the factors in play, even those you may not have thought of. They can also tell you which side your unconscious is on.
Then the final choice is up to you, but you can do it with more information and clearer ideas.
Finally, here is an example of a list of questions you can ask:
- If you would like to examine a certain situation, then, see what cards come up and understand what your options are.
- I am planning to start a business, but I‘m uncertain on one thing.
- I’m having a difficult time in my relationship. Can I do anything to improve it?
- What can I do to achieve my goal?
- I don’t have a healthy relationship with my mother. What would help me improve things?
- How can I help my friend who is going through a difficult time?
- How can I tell if the person I am dating is the right one for me?
- I want to change jobs, but I am undecided between two paths. What do I have to know about them?
- Why does this thing always happen to me?
- A certain person let me down. Am I uncertain about what I should do. What are my options and results?
Asking these questions you can easily get a complete answer telling a story about you, your life and all you need to know to become more aware, more spiritual, more in tune with the cards and their magickal power.
