Do you ever wonder what you should ask when getting a Tarot reading?  Well you are not alone.  From all the reading I’ve done on this subject, the conclusion seems to be that you want a question somewhere in the middle of the road.  Not too specific (i.e. When will I get pregnant?), or too vague (i.e. will I ever have a baby?).   Somewhere in the middle is best (i.e. what do I need to know at this time about my reproductive health?).  This type of question shows you are looking for insight into why/why not something is/is not happening.


The main area people usually want to have insight into is the unknown, their future.  Its fine to ask about the future but when it’s the near future there’s a better chance of accuracy versus the distant future.  You also must remember that we have a choice and we are always changing our minds.  For example, watch a teenage girl get ready for a date.  How many times does she change her mind on what she’ll wear? How many outfits does she try on? Only to discover she has NOTHING to wear!  Off to the mall she goes for some shopping, returning with several bags.  Excited with her new finds she’s back in front of the mirror trying on additional outfits. What is the end result?  She wears the first outfit she tried on that she has owned for a couple years!  This happens daily with all of us except maybe it’s about what to eat for lunch or cook for dinner.  The reading is based on our energy at that time so if nothing changes (we know that’s not usually happening) this would be the outcome.  Therefore, we can choose a different outcome because we have changed our mind yet again.

Avoid asking ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions.  When doing so you are given much less information than what you could get if you phrased the question differently.  Nothing is set in stone; there are too many factors that can change based on your free will.  Plus this takes the responsibility away from you because you are looking for the cards to TELL you what to do.  You still have choices and responsibilities.  It is much better to phrase the questions in a way that helps you receive additional information so you can make a decision.

To find yourself, think for yourselfIt’s also best to keep the questions personal about yourself versus others in your life, (i.e. will my lover leave her husband?).

The readings are meant for us to gain insight to ourselves for self growth and improving our life, not to try and gain insight into others lives.

Here are some more example questions..

  • What can I do to find new love?
  • What can I do to make my relationship better?
  • What can I do to find a new job?
  • What do I need clarification on concerning…? (state the situation)
  • What do I need to know or do in order to …? (state the situation)
  • What can I learn from this situation?
  • What do I need to work on to have better relationships in my life?
  • What is the impact if I take this path? (versus a ‘should I’ question)
  • How can I improve my chances on …?
  • What can I do to support my loved one during their difficult time?

Notice a common theme in the questions? “I” is stated in each question, yes there is something that needs to be done on your part to have the situation manifest or not.  The above type of questions focus on what you can do or how you can influence someone in a positive way.  They help you take responsibility, be accountable and remind you that you do have free will and can shape your future.
