Asking Good Questions

A tarot reader can answer any question - right?

Well, not quite. You see interpreting tarot is really much more difficult if you don't have the correct framework. For example, if you ask me "When am I going to marry Johnny?" chances are you aren't going to be happy with the answers I provide. Frankly I hate timing questions, and if you ask me one I am gonna do my best to weasel out of it. Some readers have psychic abilities and CAN answer those kinds of questions, but trust me I am not one of those.  But if you ask me "What do the cards say I can do to make this relationship go to the next level?" you are going to get a lot more in-depth answers and be much more satisfied with your reading. It is going to be much better for you (and for me!) if you ask SPECIFIC and open ended questions. Try not to ask things like "Should I...?" and "Will I...?" - These are questions that tend to remove you from any responsibility for how things turn out, and that's just not how we do things around here! We want you to be empowered, and to have a say in what happens in your life, and your questions should definitely reflect that. And while we are at it PLEASE don't ask me about what Johnny is going to do or think about a situation. He's not here for a reading, and it is just icky to me to crawl around someone else's destiny without their permission. Here are some examples of effective questions to present to your reader:



  • ​What do I most need to know about my love life?
  • What do I most need to know about my career?
  • What do I most need to know about my relationship with XYZ?
  • How can I move my career forward?
  • How can I move my love life forward?
  • What is the strongest foundation to build upon?
  • How can I make the best possible decision?
  • What shouldn't I do about the situation?
  • What blessings are coming to me from the divine?
  • Where is love in my life?
  • What am I ignoring?
  • What am I not seeing?
  • What is holding me back?
  • What am I seeing that's not true?
  • What can I learn from the past?
