Questions for the Tarot

“Fear is dangerous, not the tarot. The tarot represents the spectrum of the human condition, the good, the evil, the light, and the dark. Do not fear the darker aspects of the human condition. Understand them. The tarot is a storybook about life, about the greatness of human accomplishment, and also the ugliness we are each capable of,” – Benebell Wen

Articulating your question for a reading is integral. When vague, the interpretation is vague. When throwing multiple topics in at once, confusion arises as to which inquiry a card is touching on. There are general “check-up” spreads as well as layouts that specifically address multiple arenas of life which are best used when you are unsure of what to ask. When there is a burning question, something that keeps you up at night, a particular pressing thought your mind continues to wander to… those are the times that call for shaping your question in an unambiguous way. Here are subject ideas with various  phrasings to assist you in the process of wording what is on your mind.

Love and all Types of Relationships (These are basic suggestions. Many are interchangeable. A popular question to pursue is, “what am I missing” or “not seeing” in any spread dealing where others are involved)
