30 Days of Tarot — Day 23: What question do you most often ask the deck (or, ask on behalf of another)?
For others: “Tell me about my love life.”
I was warned that love would be the Number One Topic for random queries from the Internet, and oh boy, has it ever! But I feel bad answering them using tarot, because so many of the queries are best answered by the Querent themselves. Go ask $PersonOfInterest, yourself! Don’t play emotional games with them or yourself! Just go say something! Often just saying “Hello” is all that’s needed to establish a connection.
Trying to play the “One True Love” game is going to hurt you in the long run because what a person’s One True Love™ is when they are twenty years old is not the same One True Love™ when they are thirty. The heart changes and matures over the years, and the best love is the one that changes and matures right along with you. And to be honest, sometimes the person you are with now is not going to be with you later because reasons. But if you withhold yourself from the loves you have right now in hopes of having that perfect love later, you’re only sealing yourself away. Later never comes. But Now is always here. “Hello” is a good start.
For myself: “Tell me what I need to know right now about $Thing.”
Tightly constraining the field of inquiry allows me to get away with flipping three cards and getting a detailed answer. (Yes, I have a fancy for the number three.) There is always the chance of making the question too specific, but I’ve learned how to word my questions so they don’t contain the answer I’m expecting. Usually. The cards have called me out for leading the witness many times already.
