The 30 Best Questions For Tarot Reading Insights You Can Use Today

I've crafted a long list of the best questions for tarot readings. These questions have been scripted to help yield insightful, clear, and useful answers from your sessions with the cards.

  • As a client you will find them useful if you are planning to attend a tarot reading session and want to prepare thoughtful questions to ask during the session.
  • As a tarot practitioner, knowing the best questions to ask can be crucial in providing valuable readings to your clients. So, you can incorporate these questions into your sessions to help your clients receive more meaningful and impactful readings.
  • As a student of the tarot, understanding how to formulate and use effective questions is a key part of your educational process. I would recommend using these questions in your own personal tarot readings to gain deeper insights into your life, assist in making better decisions, and to make your own future predictions.

The key is to ask open-ended questions that allow the tarot cards to provide insights, guidance, and deeper understanding. Avoid yes/no questions or those with limited scope. Frame your questions to address specific areas of concern or aspects of your life you want to explore while remaining open to the messages and wisdom the cards have to offer.

Great Questions Yield The Best Tarot Readings - by Ambers Light

What are the best questions for tarot reading help and guidance?

There are two types of questions you could ask – open and closed. Open questions are by far the most revealing. Closed questions may only give you a yes or no answer, which will limit the amount of information you receive. 

Tarot is not intended to answer specific yes or no questions.  The best questions for tarot readings are well phrased and thus more effective for getting the most from your reading. You can then use those better answers as a more useful guide to help you make your important decisions.

Open questions are the most revealing tarot card questions to ask. Open questions are those that bring in discussion. Carefully framing a question will help to focus your attention on the Tarot reading and help to build a more useful session as you gain insight into what actions you need to take after your reading.

What Happens During a Tarot Reading?

At the start of a reading, most readers will generally ask for your name and ask what your question is. Occasionally readers may also ask for your date of birth as they may incorporate elements of Astrology or Numerology into their readings.

In my tarot readings I do not predict the future. We all have free will and choice and the ability to shape our futures. It does however let us imagine the future. It lets us explore and examine various options for the future. It allows us to form our thoughts and ideas so we can make choices and take actions that build our future.

Tarot gives me a way to visualise your smoothest route forward and a way to pre-empt your challenges and obstacles, to imagine solutions to your problems before they even happen. 

A Tarot reading with me is similar to a weather forecast, it’ll tell you what’s happening now and what may lie ahead. But we all know how the weather changes… Tarot gives you a heads up on when to pack your psychic umbrella!

Here are some examples of prodding questions to ask me:

  • What do I need to understand about…
  • What is the lesson to be learnt about…
  • What is it useful for me to know about…
  • What influences may be affecting…
  • What is the best way to…
  • and - Who - When - Where - How - Why

Healing Steps - by Ambers Light

How do we heal so much hurt? One of the most important things in life is the steps that we take! At times we want to rush, skip steps and feel better. Unfortunately, the patterns seem to repeat themselves so it's not wise to skip those steps. We gain the knowledge that is in those steps and that in turn helps us to heal in many different ways. When we heal, we then begin to realize how valuable and important we are in this lifetime! I offer that support and insight with my empathic ability to help you not only heal but see what steps could shift your future in a positive direction. I see, feel and hear depending on each situation and what is needed at that time. I offer Reiki to unblock the chakras as that helps in our healing process. If asked, I will also use the Tarot Cards to enhance our readings.  I am extremely sensitive to energy and have done this for numerous years. I touch on your energy in order to see what may be going on around you and how the path is laid out ahead of you. "Will this person come back or is it healthier to move on?" We all have lessons in life and I can help you to understand what this lesson is about or what your partners lesson is about. My main quest is to help you to love you and your life through the Kasamba Psychic Reading Network. I look forward to our paths crossing!
