I. The fundamental of making good Tarot questions
As Tarot’s strengths analyze situations, as well as the initiative that the Tarot requires its users, posing a good question will make a Tarot spread more flexible and lucid. Those questions like instructions in a problem-solving diagram. If you have good Tarot questions and instructions, then just follow it will get to the root of the problem and solve them thoroughly.
Therefore, it is very important to pose questions in a Tarot spread, to get the correct answers – it will helpfully create a straight path to your goals and dreams. When the questions are good, we will get a satisfactory answer. Conversely, the answer will be the same.
How can you make good Tarot questions? What do you need to notice?
1. Having open-ended Tarot questions
Tarot questions that can only be answered by the words “yes” or “no” are considered to be closed-ended questions. This type of question will be fine if you want a quick answer, but they will not bring any reflection on aspects of the problem – they simply tell us what will happen or not happening. On the other hand, by having opened questions, you will get interesting views.
For instance, instead of asking, “Will I find a new job?”, you might ask, “What is preventing me from finding a new job, and how can I overcome those barriers? ”The first question can only answer” yes “or” no “. The second question opens a deeper and clearer answer for finding a new job.
In order to have an open-ended Tarot questions, you should AVOID starting by:
- Do I …
- Shall I…
- And start with this:
- What make …
- How …
- Why …
2. Paying attention to the core of the Tarot questions
A querent asked, “What will my soulmate be like?” You can get an answer right away by drawing some tarot cards and see what will happen. Can you give an answer about the characteristics of that soul mate, but is it a really profound and helpful answer?
Or you can ask a few questions to understand more about what the querent thinks and what you can do to help him/her. Maybe, he/she is single and having trouble finding his/her partner and wants to know what her partner will be like, which can easily recognize when he/she appears.
Now, you had more information to start a really useful Tarot spread. Instead of asking, “What will my soulmate be like?”, you should ask “What signs could you let me know if I have met my partner?” Or “What do I need to make him appear?” (“What do I need to do to attract my partner?”).
Instead of asking overview questions, you should learn, analyze and grasp the core of the question. You will realize that you can handle an in-depth Tarot questions and offer more meaningful views.
3. Posing the additional Tarot questions
All questions can be divided into additional questions to help analyze the different elements of the original question. For example, the question “What should I do to have the right connection to my purpose of life?” The following question can be analyzed :
- What will come into my conscious awareness for the purposes of life?
- How do I know my purpose of life?
- What is my purpose in life?
- How am I current living compared to my purpose of living? / How is the connection between me and the purpose of living now?
- What do I need to change to be able to connect to my purpose of life? What resources will help me associate with the purpose of life?
- What will bring me closer to my purpose of life?
- What can prevent me from fulfilling my goal of life and how do I overcome it?
Do you realize what is happening now? When beginning to analyze the original question into additional questions, we will form the initial steps of the Tarot card spread with your own mark. You can draw a card for each of these questions and you get a deep and fully customizable Tarot deck.
4. The memo of making Tarot questions
It would be better if you put your thoughts and demands in the Tarot questions, the more you think about the question, the more you will get. Therefore, you should consider that you really want the Tarot cards to solve for you, as well as the question arrangement, can change the meaning of a solution.
For instance, you can consider asking one topic with different questions:
- Will I have a new job? > <How can I improve my opportunities to get a new job?
- What strengths should I put into a new job? > <What should I aim for in my new job?
Do you recognize the differences? Make sure you are asking about what you really want to know, and whether you want a type of yes-no Tarot questions, which are completely deadlocked or a proposal, advice to the new directions?

II. Useful methods in making good Tarot questions
1. The differences between Open-ended and Close-ended Tarot questions
Opened questions often start with the words “who / what / where / why / when / how”. It will allow Tarot to give you more information than the “Yes – no?” questions.
The question” What should I keep in mind when moving?” will open further issues than the one “shall I move out?”.
2. Your Duty
You are responsible for your behaviors and life, so good Tarot questions should be focused on personal responsibility. For example, try comparing: Why did he leave me? (imply that all mistakes are “him”) What are the reasons he left me? (you accept that there may be some problems in your relationship, not entirely “his” fault).
3. Carefully thinking before asking about the other people
The association that the reader has before reading cards, is you. Therefore, problem solving should focus primarily on you and the people involved in your life. It may violate morality – a form of “scrutinizing gossip” – to ask about others without their permission.
4. Assured that you are posing a question!
You are also easy to “confused” when describing situations without asking a real question! For example, I have been doing this job for 10 years, and now I heard that the company will be overflowing, but I had a chance for another job, and I am not sure about it. Whether my company heard about that, it will fire me because when there was a rumor, surely it would reach my boss’s ear.
So, what is the Tarot questions? There are too many factors here, and even you do not know what you really want to ask?
a. In detail
It is always helpful to give the reader the facts. The reader is not a prophet, they use the cards as a means to take a closer look at your situation.
So, it would be really grateful to make questions: I have three children, two boys, and one girl, who ages 5, 7 and 9 respectively, and I want to know their abilities? More than let me know about the future of my children?
b. The final purpose when ask a Question Tarot
While making a series of questions, you should take note of the original purpose before starting to spread to get the final answer querent needs. Remember that the purpose of having Tarot questions is to solve the querent problems, not to guess the things that querent already knows to express themselves.
