When clients approach me for a reading, they are often tempted to ask questions like
When will I find new love?
When will I get a new job?
Does he still love me?
What does the future have in store for me?
Will my business be successful? etc…
Although I don’t rephrase questions and aim to answer them as best as possible, I also include some additional insight clients may not have thought about, which are meant to provide opportunities for personal development and growth.
It is important to ask the right questions, which put you in control and empower you. Strive to “know thyself” with the help of Tarot.
Through self-exploration you will find the answers within you rather than hoping to find them elsewhere.
“An empowered life begins with serious personal questions about oneself. Those answers bare the seeds of success.”
– Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
Here are some personal questions you can explore with the Tarot, which you can also adapt to a specific issue:
“Who am I?”
“What do I need?”
“How do I function best?”
“How can I achieve my dreams?”
“How can I fulfil my potential?”
“What are my strengths and weaknesses?”
“What is blocking me?”
“What do I need to pay attention to at this moment in time?”
“What do I have to give?”
“How can I help and support others?”
“What’s the next step I can take right now?”
Self-inquiries like these help you
- stay true to your values and principles
- pursue your dreams and desires
- take responsibility and make the most of what life throws at you
- recover from setbacks
- grow through challenges and adversity
- set and maintain healthy boundaries
- learn from your mistakes
- accept and embrace change with confidence and resilience
- add value to others and the world around you
“At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.” – Leo Babauta
The right question should encourage you to take action rather than sitting back waiting for something to happen or surrendering to fate.
The right question should also discourage you from regarding yourself as a victim, and instead inspire you to step into your power in order to heal from any negative experiences.
