How do you ask yes and no Tarot Card questions?
I’m not sure of the spread, or the interpretation…

Answer by X-Wolf
I’ve seen it done this way: if you ask a yes or no question and draw an upright card, it means yes, if you draw reversed, it means no. The card you drew gives a more reasoning into why it is yes or no.

Answer by eustacia
This does not sound an easy way to make your mind up. Why not try dowsing as then the subconscious answer is easier to find. Use a pendant, any weight on a piece of string will do, but it muct be evenly balanced and then work out, by asking a few questions with known answers, like a name or what you like or do not like to eat, and see how it swings for your yes and your no. Then have a go.

It is useful for confirming what you already know, but divination may be a good tool but a bad master.

Answer by Kel
You don’t. Tarot is for a general, six-month spread of life.

Use a ouija board for something like that.

(BTW – the whole “reverse” readings on cards is a fairly “new” tradition – the old ways just read the cards – they are what they mean, no matter how they fall.

EDIT- Don’t care how many thumbs down I get – that’s the way it is.

Is it ok to ask frivolous questions with my tarot cards?
I don’t use them much, but I picked them up recently and have been asking silly questions. “Should my doll eat broccoli?” stuff like that. I’ve been getting silly answers. Will this interfere with my ability to use them for serious divination?

Answer by auntb93
I think it would interfere. You would do well to learn how to clear your deck, as you would if you read someone who turned out to be disrespectful or even evil.

Answer by nickie_2free
Sure, why not? They ask silly questions on this site all the time.

Answer by froufrou
i would think so
id think its a good way to practice

but then, who knows, i cant say, we dont even really know what or how tarot works specifically, we just kinda, guess

What is the appropriate section of yahoo answers to ask tarot and divination questions?
In R&S?

Answer by Sandyharold
Mythology & Folklore

Answer by Gypsy
R&S is a good choice since a number of pagans/wiccans hang out here and we can usually answer any questions about tarot or other forms of divination.
Mythology & Folklore is a good choice, too (some practitioners of divination hang out there, too).

Answer by Fionn the Mutt
I’d say Cultures and Groups or here in R&S. While the Tarot and various other forms of divination have spiritual aspects, that doesn’t always mean that the question will be relevant to the forums about spirituality.

    Regarding Tarot, it depends on the type of question. Tarot cards are not always used for divination. They are still used in many places in Europe especially in France for playing a card game similar to Spades. In fact, Tarot cards were originally intended for game playing and their use in divination began long after the creation of this deck. Card games might also be an appropriate category if one were to ask questions concerning the gaming uses of Tarot.

    Ya, either mythology/folklore or parapsychology. I’d say pseudoscience but there isn’t one.

    R and S. I’ve seen tarot and divination in the astrology section, and I’ve wondered why they do that. Astrology is specific, with zodiac signs, charts and aspects. There’s some similarity, but it’s not the same at all.

    I think you’ve found the appropriate section.

    Right here, my client. The crystal ball is yet too turve. I need 100 dollars to clear it up. Oh, I can see something now. But still it’s too hazy. Another 100 will do the trick. Good! Now the image is, if you allow me, crystal clear. Oh! But what do I see here? Alas, such horror! I need a glass of water at once. Now it’s all right. Let’s get back to your problem. Oh, I’m sorry. Your time is over. NEXT!

    R&S is the best choice if or until Y!A expands its categories. And many of us have real answers about tarot.

    I wouldn’t categorize tarot under mythology & folklore because it isn’t either; it’s a belief and a practice.

    You just have to ignore the “tarot is a scam” or “tarot isn’t real” answers. They’re just ignorant assumptions.

    Depends on the the issues surrounding the question you want to have a yes or a no answer to. You should be able to see from the individual cards whether they mean yes or no. They don’t need to be inverted or the right way up initialy.

    Hello Alice

    Yes, you can. But it does require that you have a strong relationship with the Tarot.

    I’ve seen it where there’s three cards laid down, and the upright or reversed cards that have the most end up indicating the answer. Two or three upright mean yes, in other words. If all three are reversed, then it’s an emphatic ‘no!’

    simplest way that I do it:
    shuffle deck 3 times (just person perferance). deal out three cards face down. One at a time flip over *i do from left to right flips and order, but it doesn’t matter on that much detail, but I keep the way i deal and look at cards the same in every time i read them*.
    How I read that I stated above but then once I have the general up down done, If i have any further questions i look at each card that was drawn and see if there is a deeper meaning there by the card that came up. . . I can’t give a great example of this that I have come upon because I use 2 decks on and off and how I read them is different then someone else.
    but short example:
    Will i be able to afford this trip to FL?
    if it comes up 2 yes and 1 no, I’d go and look at the cards to see what could be the effect of the no card and be aware that there might be an obsticale to over come or be aware of for my trip.

    that’s just an example.

    I don’t usually like to ask yes/no of tarot, but one can usually guess at them if a desired outcome is known. For example, if you really want a job, and ask “Will I get the job?” and the cards all show happiness, success and other positive things, that means yes. Whereas, if they showed sadness, disappointment and negative things, it would mean no.

    However, it’s usually just easier to get in the habit of asking “What will come of __job___ for me?” or something more like that in the first place.

    I tend to agree that a pendulum would be better for simple yes or no questions.

    But, I have also heard of asking a question and drawing a card in the way answer #1 describes – upright=yes, reversed=no, and the card itself gives further insight into the reasoning.

    As always, with divination – don’t rely on it for every decision you make in life – it should only be used as a tool for occasional guidance.

    pendulums are very fun and good for answering yes no questions by the way they swing
