The Tarot is an unending resource of information. The deck offers its advice without preconceived bias or judgment. It does not have an ego. Positive or negative associations given to the images on the cards are reflections of the reader’s personal understanding of the symbolism. What may be positive to one person may not be to another. Keep this in mind when asking the Tarot questions. If you are confused about answers you receive from the cards it may be the way you are asking the questions. Avoid questions that require a judgment from the Tarot, including yes or no questions. If you have a decision to make and want the Tarot’s advice it would be better to lay out a few cards for each choice. Then you would understand more about each outcome and could choose which path you would prefer to follow. The Tarot will not decide for you, but it can illuminate what lies ahead in each direction so you can make an informed decision.
