How to get the best out of your card reading

Barbe Saint John

As a professional Tarot/Oracle card reader, I get a lot of clients coming to me with no specific question in mind. They want a reading but don’t know what to ask or how to frame the question to ask. Why does a question matter so much? Because it determines the focus and context of the reading. I feel that I get a more accurate and in-­depth reading when I have context for the cards in the tarot spread. Asking the right questions in your Tarot readings is the key to gaining insight and unlocking the answers you seek.

 If you are planning on having your tarot cards read, have specific questions in mind.  Being clear about what someone wants to know helps me to deliver a clear, relevant reading. It also helps me to ensure you get the most out of the experience. Be clear. Be direct. Avoid vague, generic language. It helps me get to the heart of what you want to know. Without that clarity, you could end up with a reading that doesn’t feel very helpful. Start with a vague intention, leave with a vague answer.

When we ask good questions, we get good answers. And similarly, when we don’t have a focus or ask vague questions, we get vague aka crappy answers. Instead of asking ‘Does she/he love me?’ try asking ‘What can I do to improve this relationship?’ and rather than ask “Will I ever have love?” ask “What can I do to attract more love into my life?”

Here are some examples about the types of questions to ask:

I’m at a fork in the road. Which way should I go? What do I need to know about a situation with a family member? What do I need to know about my love life?  What do I need to know about my career? What can I do to move forward in my life/career/relationship?  What do I need to know about this situation? What can I do to improve this relationship? What important things have I forgotten? What should/ shouldn't I do about a situation with my job? How can I restore my hope for the future? What positives do the people in my life provide me? What is holding me back? What should I learn from my past? What is most important for me to do at this time? How will a certain occasion or event turn out?
