What Are Tarot Cards, And How To Ask The Right Questions From The Tarot Card Reader

  31 October, 2022

Like many forms of divination, tarot cards help you to tap into your own intuition and the wisdom of universal energy which you can use to guide the course of your life. It is more like a mirror that reflects what is happening in your life at that particular moment. Tarot is able to tap into hidden thoughts, feeling, and truths behind them. The information provided by tarot can be used to guide your life’s decisions, emotions, love, and other aspects of your life.

Tarot Cards

Most tarot deck card decks consist of 78 cards which are divided into two categories, one category called Major Arcana consists of 22 cards while the other one called Minot Arcana consists of 56 tarot cards. The Major Arcana set is used to tell about significant and large-scale events that may occur in your life while the Minor Arcana cards tell about day-to-day events in your life.

The meaning of Minors

Within the Minors, there are suits viz. Cups, Pentacles, Swords, and Wands. Cups are associated with water and the emotional self, while Pentacles are linked to the earth and the physical self. Swords are all about the mind and Wands, which is the suit of fire, is all about how you apply your energy. Major cards, on the other hand, contain seismic shifts in life. So, they tell you about stillness and growth, and dramatic stories of beginnings and endings.

What tarot card reading means

For many, tarot card reading means a woman in flowing robes, leaning over a small table, and foretelling about impending doom. But that is not what tarot cards are all about, they actually mean telling about your fortune or future. They help you in coming in contact with your higher self. Tarot card reading does not mean answering with a specific yes or no. The answers by tarot card readers shouldn’t be used to make decisions but instead to help you to make the decisions yourself.

How to ask the right question to the tarot card reader

You should keep your options open. If you have the answer before the reading then you are not allowing the cards to your overall decisions, and you thus narrow the scope of the true question by answering yourself. Keep yourself from answering even before the game started. Also, ask focused questions but these should not be overly detailed. Don’t just look at one aspect of the problem in your life, rather look at it from a broader perspective. Like, instead of asking for the solution to a problem in your married life, ask for how to achieve balance in your life. Do not go into details about what exactly is happening in your life, like the argument over the schedule; rather include a minimum level of detail needed to express what you want from the card.

Keep your questions neutral

Also, you need to stay neutral; your question should not convey a preconceived notion. Like if you think that you do more chores at home, asking the tarot reader how to get more cooperation from your partner would be a neutral question. Ensure that the question centers on you rather than on someone whom you consider as the reason for the problem. Open tarot card reading addresses larger aspects of your life, and helps when you are entering a new phase of life, like getting married, or starting a family.
