Let The Tarot Cards Choose Your Question

As a professional tarot reader, I get a lot of clients coming to me with no specific question in mind. I feel that I get a more accurate and in-­depth reading when I have context for the cards in the tarot spread.

This got me to thinking….how about if we let the cards choose the question?

I’ve developed a system where at the beginning of each reading I will draw a card from the deck and this will shape the question to be asked.  I will then choose a spread of my choice to suit the question such as The Horseshoe or The Celtic Cross.

You can view a video with a few examples on how to make this work here.

I’ve listed a question for each card below.  I’ve also put together a free download with 5 example questions for each card.  You will never be stuck on what to ask again!

  1. I was designing a spread for D. about being her highest self. I remembered that the last example of the 25 easy 3 card spreads worksheet from the biddy community was one that asked about highest good (or what the universe wants) and used that as a base. Under personal qualities, I decided on two cards one for external qualities and one for internal qualities.
    Then the question was specific action, that was ok, rephrased a little. But the spread didn’t seem complete now. Kind of cried out to be a 5 card.
    So I remembered getting 390 Questions to Ask Your Tarot Reader. I pulled a card and looked up the list of questions associated with it.
    In this case, the card was the 7 of Pentacles, and the questions in the list reminded me that I had to try and light up the path as far as I could, future planning was important, that I had to ask for some guidance about her continuing path.
    It seems obvious now, but I had spent about 10 minutes tinkering around with some different questions without making them future oriented. I answered the immediate question but no future direction. Kind of like treating a broken arm by putting a cast on and then sending the patient away, with no care instructions, no idea of when the arm will be healed and what symptoms and side effects they should be aware of. You fixed the immediate problem, now the client is on their own!
    So thank you, David, for sharing your inspirations and ideas so generously with our tribe.

      What a great story. Yes I agree there is only so much that we can do as readers. We are here to interpret the messages from the universe but it’s absolutely up to the client to do what they wish with that info.
