We’re within sight now of the end of this challenge. Hasn’t there been some great challenges already! I’ve really had to think about some of the answers and explore a little of myself in the process. Today’s question is this: What question do you most often ask the deck (or, ask on behalf of another)?
One of the most insightful questions you can ask any Tarot deck, I feel, is an open ended question. “What do I need to know?” is a great one. “Will s/he come back?” isn’t a great one, for you may well not like the answer if your heart is set on the outcome being “yes”, and it’s a closed question. The Tarot is rather unforgiving in yes/no answers. Here’s another similar one that I know a lot of Readers get asked: “I’ve not heard from X in 6 months… Will s/he come back?” Honestly, sweetie, if they’ve not contacted you in 6 months, a year or longer, you don’t need a Tarot reader to say “no”. However, I feel you need to work out why you won’t let them go, why you’re holding onto the miserable baggage of the past. Ask the Tarot that question then go and live your life and make yourself a new dream. You’re worth it!
Someone asked me the other day in a group I’m on within Google+, “What’s fabulous about you?” and it was about me, as an individual, not as the Chairperson of TABI, not as a Tarot Reader, mother, wife, chief, cook, bottle washer… Plain old, pregnant, me. It took me a while to work out an answer I was personally happy with. Organised, was the word I came up with, for I can be organised. From the blog post the other day, you can see that there were many replies to the question about what card would personally suit me. In this question and context, the Page of Cups was certainly more fitting than the Queen!
So today, combing Bedivere and the Otter, be playful, honest and if you’re hesitant, ask both of these characters for help and assistance.
