How well do you ask questions when consulting the cards? Do you take the time to formulate the question in such a way that there will be absolutely no doubt that the cards will show you exactly the type of information you are after? From my experience too many readers fail to even think about the issue.
Cards will answer the actual question, not what you meant to ask but eventually didn’t because you failed to convert your thoughts into a clear, unambiguous question. Broad questions will result in vague answers that are either tricky to interpret or that can go in so many different directions that it’s easy to simply mold the interpretation to an answer that suits you.
Don’t ask “What do I need to know about this relationship?” because you won’t know what type of answer you will be getting. Will it be a description of the current situation? Or an advice on how to deal with it? Or perhaps the cards will be showing you how the relationship will develop in the near future… So how are you going to interpret it?
Take the time to think about what you want to know, write it down if you need to and make sure your question is direct, succinct and well-defined. If you are in doubt about something, don’t ask “Should I…?” because who are you asking to decide for you in that case? Rather ask for outcomes, compare different possibilities and look at pros and cons of the options you are considering.
Use common sense when sitting down with your cards. Especially when you are in love or dealing with questions about matters of the heart because that’s where people tend to lose their ability to think. Avoid questions such as “Is he the one?”, “Will I find love again?” or “Does she have feelings for me?”. The cards have no idea what your definition is of “the one” apart from the fact that it might as well be the one for the coming 6 months before the next one comes along rather than the one you will spend the rest of your life with. When asking about love and feelings, be specific – there are many forms of love and feelings.
Get your questions right before anything else. The accuracy of the answer depends on it before your ability as a reader even comes into play.
