Strategies For An Empowering Reading

I believe that asking the right kind of question has a huge impact on the usefulness and outcome of your readings. A well phrased question will guide you to decide how to lay out the cards for a more informative reading.

Good questions always focused on who is asking the question and elicit information to make the best decisions for the situation. They focus on what you can influence or change in a positive and constructive way. Yes/no questions are discouraged, instead framing them as open-ended questions.

A time frame of a year or less is useful because the choices you make after the reading will influence the future of the situation. Consider what you really want to know or understand about a situation, and then formulate your question accordingly. For example, rather than asking, “Will my finances be good in the next 4 months?”ask “What do I need to do about my finances in the next 4 months?”

For this question I would draw 6 cards to identify the following:
1. Theme – Sun. Finances look optimistic for the next 4 months.
2. Opportunity – Magician. I have the opportunity manifest the financial situation I want.
3. Challenge – Awakening.  In order to manifest the opportunity I must be willing to release an old paradigm and be open to the new.
4. Hope and Fear – Authority. I hope to make good decisions, but I fear they may not be the right decision.
5. Best course of action – Justice. All actions have consequences so my best course is to be fair and balanced about my finances.
6. How to do the best course of action – Choice. A just action is to decide what needs to change about how decisions have been made in the past. Then I will be able to manifest what I want and to release an old paradigm, knowing my actions are balanced and fair.

Be clear about what you’re asking of the Tarot cards and you will be empowered to positively impact your future.
