Asking The Right Questions...
What questions you should ask in your Tarot or Oracle Readings to get more Clarity and insight from the answers to your most important questions...
It doesn't matter which type of reading that you go for, if you have a Tarot or a oracle card reading. What does matter is the type of questions that you ask in your next Tarot or Oracle card reading. Tarot and Oracle card readings are all about asking the right questions, mainly specific questions that you want more clarity on.
Over the years in my tarot and oracle business, I’ve learned that the question itself is just as important as the insights and guidance you can receive. That’s why you need to begin by getting clear on what you want from your reading.
Here are some of my tips and advice to give you a really clear, specific and spot on reading for you.
I personally as a Tarot and Oracle reader, avoid questions about health and anything to do with medical issues (I believe those are better answered by a medical professional) but I embrace every other topic.
When you go for a reading, whatever reading it may be. It's important to give your reader a brief summary of where you’re at and what you want to know so they can design a reading tailored to you. Treat your tarot reader like any professional—tell them what you need to know. That way, you’ll get a more specific answer—and your money’s worth!
So ask yourself before seeing me or any other reader - Is there something specific you that you would like to know? Are there any challenges in your life that you need some specific guidance on?
It's a great idea to take a few minutes to think about what, exactly, it is you want to know. And I often recommend that my clients write down what it is that they are wanting answers to, so writing down your questions a day before your reading, is a great way to be prepared for your reading and to get the answers to your questions in a clear and direct way.
To help you out, I’ve put together some great questions to ask followed by some dos and don'ts of crafting your own tarot or oracle questions. This will help you to get the most out of your readings.
HOW TO ASK AND PHRASE EFFECTIVE TAROT OR ORACLE QUESTIONS?
You may want to ask in your Tarot or oracle readings simple yes or no questions. These are great as you get a straightforward answer. However, asking just yes or no questions might not give you all the answers that you need.
A lot of Tarot or oracle card readers do not like to do just yes or no questions as they feel restricted in how they interpret the cards.
So what are the best ways to ask effective Tarot or oracle questions?
ASK SPECIFIC AND CONCISE QUESTIONS
It is really important to be specific and concise when asking Tarot and oracle questions. In order to get the answers you need, you must know exactly what questions you need to ask!
Before you go into a Tarot or oracle reading, make sure you take enough time to think about what you are wanting to know from the cards.
Spend a while formulating the question in an easy and understandable way. If you are wanting to know about a specific thing, include it in the Tarot or oracle question!
ASK OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS
Of course, you might wish to ask the Tarot or oracle cards yes or no questions. However, asking the cards open-ended questions will mean that you will get more out of the reading.
In being specific but leaving the question open, you will be able to understand the meaning behind the cards that are pulled.
Open-ended questions also mean that your mind is open and willing. A big part of reading Tarot or oracle cards is to tap into our subconsciousness and spirit. Asking open-ended questions will allow your mind and soul to explore the question that you have asked the cards. These types of questions allow for deep discussion about your life and the universe.
ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT YOURSELF, NOT ABOUT OTHERS
When it comes to Tarot or oracle questions, it is super important to keep the questions focused on yourself. It is tempting to ask about other people and what they think or feel, but you may not get the answers that you want.
Focus on personal growth and spiritual wellbeing in the questions that you ask in a Tarot or oracle reading. This means that you will come out of the reading feeling empowered and ready to take on the world!
TRY TO FOCUS ON THE PRESENT
Tarot and oracle readings are all about guiding ourselves into the future and show us how we are dealing with the present. Therefore, keep your Tarot and oracle questions focused on this and not what the future holds.
Of course, you kind of want to go into a Tarot or oracle reading and learn everything you can learn about the future. But, Tarot and oracle card readings don't really work like this. There are secrets of our future that the universe does not want to tell us and that we are not meant to know! This is always for our highest good and our own personal and souls journey protection.
Ask the cards about what you can do now in order to flourish in the future.
IT’S OKAY NOT TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS TOO
If there’s something specific you want to know, please ask! But sometimes, you don’t know what it is you’re looking for, and you just want to see what the cards will reveal. If this is the case, tell me or your reader a little bit about your own background (like your relationship status, job, home, and any burning issues going on) and say you’d like to be inspired or informed about your life right now. This can be a general reading, to just get an overview of where you are in the present.
Here are some examples of some questions that you could ask in your next Tarot or oracle card reading:-
TAROT OR ORACLE QUESTION EXAMPLES TO ASK THE CARDS
When it comes to Tarot or oracle questions, it is super important to ask specific and clear questions, as I have mentioned above. You are not going to get any answers if your question is confusing and not really specific!

WHAT NOT TO ASK AT YOUR NEXT TAROT OR ORACLE READING
Now you know what to ask in a Tarot or oracle reading, let’s look at things that you really shouldn’t ask in a Tarot or oracle reading!
1. QUESTIONS ABOUT MORTALITY
Never ask the cards questions about your own mortality or the mortality of loved ones. Of course, death and life are the most confusing things about the world and it is so hard to get our heads around these huge topics. However, a Tarot and oracle reading is not the place to ask these sorts of questions. Never ask the cards when you will die or how long you will live for.
2. QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE
Like I said before, keep your questions all focused on yourself and your own personal improvement. Tarot and oracle cards are here to guide you, not give you gossip and answers about others!
You may want to ask the cards if your crush likes you back, or if somebody hates you. But, these types of questions are not only unethical, but you might not get the answers that you are looking for!
3. QUESTIONS THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR THE ANSWER TO
Sometimes we want to hear the truth, but the truth hurts. If you are not willing and ready to deal with this pain, don’t ask the Tarot or oracle cards questions regarding these topics.
Getting answers that you don’t want to hear will affect your personal and spiritual growth. It will also mean that you come away from the reading upset and angry. This will disrupt your connection with the Tarot and oracle cards and will therefore affect your future readings.
4. QUESTIONS ABOUT MEDICAL ISSUES
Of course, general health questions are fine to ask the cards. These can give you an understanding of your overall health and guide you to strength and positivity!
However, you should never ask the cards about specific medical issues. If you need medical help, seek a doctor. The cards cannot diagnose you with health or mental health problems.
5. ASKING THE SAME QUESTION OVER AND OVER AGAIN
If you don’t like the answer the first time around, you may be tempted to ask the same question again. But, this won’t help you at all! If you are not happy with the answer that you received, take time away from the cards to work out what you can do with the information you gained.
You may wish to revisit the question again with the cards, but make sure you wait at least two weeks before you do.
I really hope that this guide on Tarot and oracle questions has helped you! There are so many great ways to use Tarot and oracle cards and to learn more about yourself and the world around you.
