It’s pretty commonly said that you should leave questions asked to the Tarot open ended. Yes, this does allow for room to move around. It also leaves room for you to interpret the situation in ten different ways. While you definitely don’t want to try to trick the psychic with hard-answer questions, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to know about one certain thing. How and why you should be specific with your tarot questions isn’t hard to answer, but be prepared to put in a little work to make sure that you get the best reading that you can.
The Tarot is always described as being a guide throughout the reading process. It leads you in a way that can make sense for the situation. But the problem is that if you ask a question that is too open then you’ll end up with an unsatisfying answer. To get the proper guidance you’ve got to narrow everything down. Start with figuring out what you really want to find out. Pretend that you’ve been given the opportunity to have your very own spirit guide. This being will personally show you exactly what you need to know. What will you ask them? The question should be the same as what you would ask a psychic with a tarot deck. They’re both guides, but having the assurance of knowing there will be an outcome that answers your questions tends to open up what we’re thinking of asking. A deck seems like an inanimate object, but should be treated like a person.
Like we mentioned, you do want to stay away from questions that are too steadfast in their answer. That’s easier than it sounds, we promise. Keep in mind that guidelines tend to bar people from inquiring about medical conditions, other people’s business, and death. Medical conditions are for doctors. They should be the ones that you see when you need help with a pregnancy or getting rid of an illness. If it’s something more serious then you’re still better off with a medical professional. You can always ask something like, “What do I need to do about my (insert medical issue here)?” There’s nothing wrong with wanting to know more about it, but asking if you’ll be cured or if your doctor can treat it is a different story.
When you ask the Tarot about another person and what they’re doing you’re not going to get a very good reading, plain and simple. Their business is their own and you’re psychic is only going to be able to pick up on what you perceive on them. A more specific way to inquire about them would be, “What affect will (insert person’s name here) have on my life?” This steers it back to you, which is the realm your reading is strongest in. You still might get a less than specific answer, but at least you’ll get one.
Death, oh death. This is just something that isn’t useful knowing. Your psychic probably won’t even want to touch the subject. So it’s best to find another subject.
