i recently asked some tarot and oracle lovers if they had any questions about the much adored practice of using tarot cards to obtain yes or no answers. the following questions about yes no tarot are the ones that were asked the most. if you have any questions, let me know!!
yes or no tarot: what is it?
each of the 78 traditional cards of a tarot deck have a yes, no, or unsure answer linked to them. some people feel the cards assigned as ‘unsure’ leave too much room for interpretation so they have been given either a yes or no. the yes or no aspect of any particular card (or group of cards) can be used in conjunction with a more in depth tarot reading or the yes no tarot card aspect can be used on its own.
which tarot cards mean yes or no?
some examples of yes tarot cards: strength, the sun, two of cups, ten of pentacles, the world.
some examples of no tarot cards: death, three of swords, the tower, ten of wands, five of cups.
if you have even a small amount of tarot knowledge, you’ll be able to see that the tarot card with a yes answer as the tarot cards with highly positive meanings, that offer good news, comfort and reassurance. those cards you can see in the no section are notoriously the “bad” cards, the ones that people use as their excuse to be frightened or disrespectful of tarot cards, tarot readings, and tarot readers.
yes, you can! and it’s super easy too 😊 if you don’t yet have a lot of tarot experience, you can purchase a yes no tarot cheat sheet, just like the one in this listing. keeping information like this close by can help you to learn it quicker and easier, and without any overwhelm.
how to ask yes or no when dealing with cards from the tarot?
the way a yes no tarot question works to the best of its ability is when a closed question is asked. a closed question is one that provides the opportunity for a yes or no answer.
asking an opened ended question in this situation only confuses things and a yes or no answer will not make sense.
for example, a good closed question one could ask is “will i get engaged in the next 6 months?”. an opened ended question in the same vein as this would be something like “why won’t my partner propose to me?”. as you can see, giving this question a yes or no answer is confusing and useless.
is asking yes or no when practicing tarot accurate?
the answers are as accurate as the question being asked and the intention behind it. if you’re asking if yes no tarot answers are accurate, there’s a chance you may need to take a step back and ask yourself if you think tarot is accurate. tarot is just as much about self belief, intuition, and intention as it is about accuracy.
however, there are ways you can seriously improve the accuracy of the yes or no answers provided. ensure your question is closed, clear, and makes sense. you can also focus on the intention on getting the answer that you need
how do i begin a yes no tarot reading?
one of best things about yes no tarot readings is how quick they can be done, how little space and time they require, plus the minimal effort required of you, the reader, to get it done.
shuffle, hold the deck, think of your closed question, hold the though, image, intention, whatever it is you see in your mind when you focus on this particular question. when you’re ready, draw a card and find it’s correlating answer.
how often can i do a tarot reading?
beauty of tarot (and divination in general) is the freedom and power to practice however you wish. many tarot lovers do a single daily reading for themselves. this is done nearly every day, if not every day.
there is no official, governing body who rule over the tarot world. there is no rule book. the entire point of divination is stepping into your own divinity &making your own choices.
however, the issue of “how often” more so applies to the <i>topic</i> you are performing the reading about. if you’re doing a daily check in on the energies, then that’s normal. if you’re shuffling the cards daily to check if your ex is thinking about you, then that’s possibly not as okay and not as healthy. but hey, you do you. like i said, no one is the boss of tarot!
