Tarot Questions: 13 Things to Ask the Cards

Posted by spiritscraft on September 7, 2016 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I love divination! But sometimes I don't have any idea what to ask the tarot. I already have a dark haired handsome boyfriend. I like my job. Most things seem pretty well in balance. I am not the best at asking for advice anyways. I usually spend a lot of time giving myself advice by sorting through things and using my friends and family as sounding boards. But as a sorceress with a lot of magical friends, tarot readings are offered often and I need to be ready to ask something when the cards come out. I started paying attention go the kinds of questions my covenmates asked during our sabbath readings and I cruised the net looking for ideas so that I could make better use of one of my favorite tools, fortune telling. Here are 13 questions to ask the tarot that I came up with and use myself when someone wants to read for me.

  1. What do I need to focus on in my life now?
  2. How can I have more joy and fun?
  3. What’s the best way for me to make a positive difference in the world?
  4. What will help me feel more peaceful?
  5. How can I best express my creativity?
  6. What talent do I have that I need to use more?
  7. What part of me am I denying right now?
  8. What do I need less of in my life?
  9. How can I feel more connected to my community?
  10. Who in my life do I need to reach out to today?
  11. What is currently influencing me the most?
  12. What spiritual lesson do I need to learn?
  13. What is my biggest hurdle to success?

I hope you do some readings with these questions and let me now how it goes in the comments! What is your favorite question to ask the cards?

I am stuck in the car a lot, driving to my part-time job, to my boyfriends, to my coven meetings and to my mentoring sessions. I can be in the car over two hours a day, and I can tell you I have grown tired of the current offerings of all the major types of music stations country, hip hop, rock, oldies, and pop. I decided to feed my mind instead of hearing the same songs over again so I first started buying audio books, but then I discovered a secret, there are tons of free occult audiobooks on Librivox!

I got the Librivox app for my phone so I can listen anywhere, but these same websites let you save files so that you could burn them to CD for your car stereo or walkman, or even listen to them at home on your computer or tablet. This is just a smattering of what is available, but be aware that searching the site is challenging. I use the advanced search and try tons of different keywords: occult, mystic, hermetic, celtic, mythology, legend, theosophy, magic, Rosicrucian, astral, etc.

Occult

The Kybalion

The Book of Lies by Aleister Crowley 

Elementary Theosophy by LW Rogers 

Mythology

British Goblins: Welsh Folk-lore, Fairy Mythology, Legends and Traditions Mysticism by Wirt Sikes 

Bullfinch’s Mythology the Age of Fable 

The Celtic Twilight by WB Yeats 

The Ramayan 

Magic

The Golden Bough by James Frazer 

Tea-Cup Reading and Fortune-Telling by Tea Leaves by a Highland Seer 

Cuban Folk Lore by Roy Terwilliger 

A caution when listening to or reading books that are old enough to be in the public domain as many have out of date information or suffer from the racist ideologies of the time. Terms like primitive, savage, and concepts of “karma” and “evolution” should be heavily scrutinized as to take what is the best of the ideas and discard the prejudiced ones.

Enjoy and be sure to comment with treasures you have found on librivox or other audiobook sites.
