What are tarot cards?
Tarot is a set of seventy-eight cards, each featuring different symbolic pictures. A standard Tarot deck is made up of 22 cards called the major arcana or trumps, and four suits of 14 cards - similar to playing cards - called the minor arcana or pip cards.
What are Tarot cards used for?
Tarot cards can be used for practical problem-solving, creative visualisation, meditation, self-improvement, as a tool of understanding, for divination and fortune-telling, even for card games. Some collect Tarot cards simply for the joy of the artwork, while other delve further into research and study of the history of Tarot cards. What kinds of questions can I ask? You can ask almost any type of question, covering any area of life or personal development. The question can be about the past, present, or future, about your life, relationships, business, career, finances, or personal development. Tarot is designed to represent all aspects of life, there is really no question you cannot ask. However, there are a few questions that are not recommended to ask for ethical and liability reasons. If you need an advice of a trained doctor, lawyer, or investment counselor it is recommended to seek the assistance of a professional. Finally, the question you ask should be about you and your relationships with others. Doing readings that are solely focused on another person is considered unethical and may invade their privacy.
How should I phrase my question?
You may phrase it any way you like, but some ways may provide you with a more useful reading than others. It is recommended that you avoid yes/no questions. Receiving a yes or no answer does not provide you with very much information about the situation, and may not accurately reflect all the complexities involved in the answer. If you ask it differently you may receive a great deal more to work with. In general, try asking questions that empower you to improve the situation, that begin with how, why, what do I need to know, or other approaches that provide you with more insight into the situation.
Can tarot readings predict the future?
Reading tarot is a bit like reading weather charts – you can look at things that have already happened and historical patterns, what is happening now, what energies are forming, and the natural consequences of these trends into the future. However, the future is affected by your free will and that of others, and every action you take and decision you make changes it. The future, like the weather, is also affected by random and unpredictable events.
Can I change the outcome of my reading?
Always. Your future is not predetermined, and you have free will, along with the right and responsibility to exercise it. A tarot reading should never be accepted as an absolute prediction of things to come, but rather an encouragement if you are on the right path, or a warning of what may come if you continue down a destructive path.
