“What Do I Ask?” – Asking the Right Questions in a Tarot Reading

I think it’s fair to say that the majority of people who get a tarot reading for the first time are nervous, especially about asking the right questions. You heard that you can accidentally summon demons with them or get sucked into another dimension. Or the first thing that pops into your mind is one word: scam.

What do you mean you’re going to see my future? Are you gonna use a crystal ball and steal my blood too? NO! Of course not! But it’s a common thought that tarot readings are scams.

For the legit diviners out there, like myself, tarot readings actually do provide some insight as to what will happen to you.

Let’s say you’re willing to give a reading a shot. You’re excited, super nervous even. You go meet me at Starbucks or Olive Garden. We introduce ourselves, you pick the deck you want for your reading, and now it’s time to ask your question…

You draw a blank! Oh my god, this is embarrassing. I don’t know what to ask!

Below is a list of questions you can use whenever you don’t want just a general reading. Or even after you’ve had a reading and you want more clarification about it. Totally up to you:

  • What obstacles are blocking me from my goal?
