There can be a lot of fear in getting a tarot reading, especially for first-timers. Fear of the unknown, fear of having secrets exposed, fear of bad news–all these things tend to bubble up to the surface as you are waiting for the cards to be shuffled. Perhaps this is why, when asked, so many clients answer “I don’t know” when asked if they have any questions. Stay generic, stay on the surface, and things won’t be so scary.
General questions are great if you’re just doing tarot for a lark, something fun to do on a weekend afternoon. But tarot and oracle cards can provide much more than entertainment if you’re brave enough to dig just a little bit deeper. When you ask the right questions, you can learn so much more about yourself, your place in the world, and what you can do to make your life richer and more rewarding.
Taking Off The Training Wheels
I’m going to take some of the questions I often get and give a few examples of ways to dig deeper. You’ll get more from the questions you ask and open up doors to questions you hadn’t even considered asking.
Will I get a boyfriend/girlfriend/get married?
These questions are extremely common for spur-of-the-moment readings, and the answers are usually less than satisfying. Honestly, no tarot reader is going to hand you a name, address, and venue for the wedding. But perhaps, by going deeper, your reader can help you create an environment that leads to your best relationship.
- What parts of myself do I need to explore to make myself ready for a deeper romantic relationship?
- How am I blocking love and intimacy?
- What is the best path to opening myself to a relationship?
Will I get a promotion/get a raise/win the lottery?
Honestly, if your tarot reader could accurately predict the winning lotto numbers, what are the odds she’d be there to read your cards? Generic money questions may seem like a good idea, but if you really want answers, you’ll have to dig deeper.
- How do I bring more wealth/abundance into my life?
- How can I best use my talents and resources to increase my wealth?
- What factors are blocking my economic growth?
I’m worried about my (insert family member here).
Many clients come to readings with concerns about spouses, children, or other family members. The reality of these questions is that it’s not so much the family member in question, but how the client can interact with said family member that matters most.
- What role am I playing in my family member’s trouble?
- How am I contributing to the problem, and what can I do to improve the situation?
- Is this a matter that requires my intervention, or should I back away and just allow?
- How do I protect my own well-being while my family member is going through this?
The truth is, a lot of people will want a tarot reading while secretly fearing it. When the answers start hitting home, it’s tempting to back away and stick to surface questions. But why waste the opportunity? It takes courage to look clearly at yourself and your actions, but it’s worth it in the end.
