When you start learning the Tarot, most books and more experienced readers recommend pulling a daily tarot card in order to familiarise yourself with your deck and the images.
At this stage there is no pressure to come up with a relevant interpretation; just record the name of the card on a sheet of paper together with a note of the day’s events to compare.
The next step is to ask a question before you draw your card, such as “What do I need to pay attention to today?”
Quicker than my more detailed one-card reading approach, the random question technique offers you new insights every day.
Asking a question will help you focus and make your daily draw a little more specific. Even better when you ask a different question every day.
For this purpose, I have compiled a list of questions you can ask at random:
- What do I need to do differently today?
- What do I need to embrace?
- What do I need to avoid?
- How can I invite positive change into my life?
- What will be my strength today?
- How can I tackle a challenge today?
- What new opportunity do I need to look out for?
- How can I be more positive today?
- What new potential will be emerging?
- How can I nurture new growth?
- What do I need to let go of that prevents new growth / opportunities?
- What can I be grateful for today?
- How can I nurture myself?
- How can I help others?
- What can I let go of without losing anything?
- How can I simplify my life today?
- How can I increase abundance in my life?
- What can I do to have a good day today?
- What lesson will I learn?
- What is happening in my life that I am not aware of?
- What step can I take today to reach my goal?
- How can I raise my confidence / self-esteem today?
Over time, you can add more questions to this list to expand your self-exploration.
And here is a cool way to choose a random question to answer each day:
Make your own question cards!
Use old greeting cards you received (e.g. Birthday, Christmas, etc.) and cut them into mini size cards (mine on the image above are approx. 45 x 75 mm). Write a question on the back of each card.
Mix the cards and lay them face down. Pick a card and hey presto, you’ve got your question for the day.
As I mentioned before, you can extend your card set when you think of new questions you would like to add.
Take a look at what I have created:
Random questions are a great way to add variety and depth to your daily tarot card draws, and hopefully you are inspired to create your own set of questions cards ?
