Ask Open-Ended Questions.
How you phrase a question to your Tarot cards is as important as your attitude toward your deck. I’m serious, but in a good mood when I reach for my Tarot cards. I ask questions with respect — if I’m frustrated about something, I’ll usually not consult the Tarot. It’s important to be open for what information the Tarot has to share — I try not to have a preconceived response. As an example, if I’m eager to meet someone new and have my sights set on a particular individual, I won’t ask about that person, but ask one that could open different possibilities — What can I expect in regards to meeting new people? It is usually best not to ask a yes or no question.
Let’s Learn A Bit About Tarot Spreads
I choose Tarot Decks that follow the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition. This makes it easy for me to read the cards from one deck to another without having to consult the guidebook.
I have so many favorite Tarot Decks — I really enjoy Gilded Tarot Royale and of course Everyday Witch Tarot. Below I’ve shared some others from my collection — Mystical Maga, Steampunk Tarot, and Tarot In Wonderland. They are always fun to bring out during the fall season — or anytime, actually. Of course, there are plenty of Tarot Decks with a Halloween Theme — a favorite is Trick Or Treat Tarot pictured above.

What Have We Learned About Tarot Spreads?
So much of Tarot can be overwhelming — there is a lot to learn, not just the card meanings, but different spreads . . . We’re trying to make it easier for you by letting you know that you can do what works for you. It is important that you are comfortable with your Tarot cards and with the spread you choose to use. It’s essential to note that a spread is a tool — how you choose to use it is up to you.
I thought the yes or no quick answer pick a card was quite interesting — it was mainly upright for yes and upside down for no — no card reading interpretation necessary . . . It was also interesting how we were told that Tarot prefers to give us insight — not quick yes or no responses.
I do enjoy asking Tarot open-ended questions — What do you have to share with me today? It can be general or more specific — usually the more specific, the better. This gives clarity for you as well as for the Tarot. It is also good to have a journal where you write down your questions and responses — you can also date them as a reference for the future. So many times we ask questions, get an answer and pretty much forget about it — there could be something important we didn’t understand at the time, but later realize we were told something significant.
We’re on this really great journey, learning as we’re moving forward.
