What kinds of questions can you ask in a tarot card reading?
I am going for a reading next week but I am not sure what I can ask or how to ask for information. What I really want to know is if I will become pregnant anytime in the near future but how do I ask this without it being a yes or no question?

Suggestion by lisa lee
I would not bother with tarot card readings. The way to get pregnant is by having unprotected sex not by having your cards read. Stay away from psychics and the like, its a wrong road to take in your life x

Suggestion by Z
Well, tarot cards are to be taken VERY seriously and to ask it in another way maybe “If I have unprotected sex soon will anything happen?” You have to act as if you plan to have unprotected sex and just go with it.

Suggestion by Galactic Emperor
The tarot (also known as tarocchi, tarock or similar names) is typically a set of seventy-eight cards, composed of twenty-one trump cards, one Fool, and four suits of fourteen cards each—ten pip and four face cards (one more face card per suit than in Anglo-American playing cards).

Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play Tarot card games such as Italian Tarocchini and French Tarot. In English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards are utilized primarily for divinatory purposes, with the trump cards plus the Fool card making up the twenty-two major arcana cards and the pip and four face cards the fifty-six minor arcana. The terms Major Arcana and Minor Arcana are used in occult tarot and are seldom used by card players. The divinatory meanings of the cards are derived mostly from the Kabbalah of Jewish mysticism and from Medieval Alchemy.

what is the difference between a physic reading and a tarot card reading?
what is the difference between a physic reading and a tarot card reading ? Which is better choice ?
or a palm reader ?

Suggestion by POONEY
A crystal ball and a deck of cards. Tarot cards seems better.

Suggestion by “A”
In one the extra sensory perception comes from a deck of cards, the other the perception comes from the person.

Both are a waste of time.

Suggestion by LiveReadings
Tarot readers rely on intuition, skill, experience and the symbols of the tarot cards. Psychic’s listen to voices and often can contact spirits from beyond.

Personally I have found tarot readings to me more accurate. I explain the difference here at these blog posts:

Is it bad to get nothing but pentacles and swords in my tarot card reading?
I had more cards pop up like strength, the sun, Justice and I think I may have gotten the empress; however, every other card that popped up were pentacles and sword cards. Can someone tell me what this means?

Suggestion by DaniNyko the Deinonychus
That your deck is random and not Fixed/rigged

Suggestion by Larry G
Much depends on what question or issue the reading was for, AND what the layout was. Generally, swords refers to beliefs and opinions, while pentacles are for education, culture, and such.

Perhaps this means to quit offering unfounded opinions and get some real education to base your beliefs on. Or, it could mean that you are passionate about teaching, justice, or righteous living.

Tarot is satanic. Trust God.

Is it ok to ask frivolous questions with my tarot cards?

Is it ok to ask frivolous questions with my tarot cards?
I don’t use them much, but I picked them up recently and have been asking silly questions. “Should my doll eat broccoli?” stuff like that. I’ve been getting silly answers. Will this interfere with my ability to use them for serious divination?

Suggestion by auntb93
I think it would interfere. You would do well to learn how to clear your deck, as you would if you read someone who turned out to be disrespectful or even evil.

Suggestion by nickie_2free
Sure, why not? They ask silly questions on this site all the time.

Suggestion by froufrou
i would think so
id think its a good way to practice

but then, who knows, i cant say, we dont even really know what or how tarot works specifically, we just kinda, guess

What do the symbols on the tarot cards mean?
What do the clubs, stars, swords, and cups mean?

my nan can read them & taught me to do readings
Load of crap if you ask me, but when I do the idiots can really relate to it

Suggestion by Will Nickel
There are a good many different explanations, any one of which will suffice. As an earlier answer told you, each pack of cards comes with an explanatory booklet.

I have some general questions about tarot cards and reading?

I have some general questions about tarot cards and reading?
1. How do you shuffle your deck? I know it’s a manner of preference, but I want some opinions. This leads into…

2. Should I encourage reverse cards? Is this also a manner of preference?

3. What is a good spread for asking simple questions? Just shuffle and draw a card as an answer?

Suggestion by Meetu
First thing abt Tarot – FOLLOW your INTUITION.
1. U can shuffle any way u like. Tarot cards r sacred. so handle them with respect. I shuffle like playing cards jus tht i do it much more respectfully and lovingly This is the easiest way for me as my hands ar a little small. They r ur companions.

2. Again its a matter of ur chioce. Reverse cards also indicate the same except tht the intensity of the msg of the card is reduced. Its more like planets going retrograde. I generally dont use reversed cards. Only if they fall from deck in a reversed manner i read them in tht way.

3. For simple questions u can do a one card reading or 5 card reading. again go with ur intuition. Sometimes a single card cant give u info as the issue goes deeper, so u can take either a clarification card or do a complete reading. Use bigger spreads for getting deeper insights.

Suggestion by Helen
1) Overhand (I have never been able to riffle shuffle any cards and I and don’t want to damage my cards)
2) Not as a beginner, but later to add some depth to your dictionary/vocabulary
3) Single card or three card spread (past, present, future) or 2-card challenges spread (situation and challenges), or 2-card challenges spread plus likely outcome of current path/direction (the 3 main cards from the celtic cross spread for a specific issue).

There are some great tips in this site:

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
I shuffle my deck as I would any other cards and it is a matter of preference. Some readers don’t use reverse cards but I think that it limits you in your readings if reverse is not used. You don’t have to encourage them, they will just happen.

I don’t use a spread for questions. I throw 3 – 5 cards and sometimes even more if I don’t get the answer right away.

Can other people besides yourself touch your tarot cards?
I have heard that nobody but you can touch them because of personal energy,but what if the other person is the questioner? Dont they have to pick out thier own cards?

Suggestion by overweight doomsayerz
You’re just not supposed to have a tarot card set that has been used by someone else.

Suggestion by samakāmitā
sure, if they find some.

Suggestion by Maci
If someone touched your tarot cards and made you feel uncomfortable, tell a trusted adult. No one should touch your tarot cards until you are ready.
