How do you ask yes and no Tarot Card questions?

I’m not sure of the spread, or the interpretation…


  1. I’ve seen it done this way: if you ask a yes or no question and draw an upright card, it means yes, if you draw reversed, it means no. The card you drew gives a more reasoning into why it is yes or no.

  2. This does not sound an easy way to make your mind up. Why not try dowsing as then the subconscious answer is easier to find. Use a pendant, any weight on a piece of string will do, but it muct be evenly balanced and then work out, by asking a few questions with known answers, like a name or what you like or do not like to eat, and see how it swings for your yes and your no. Then have a go.
    It is useful for confirming what you already know, but divination may be a good tool but a bad master.

  3. You don’t. Tarot is for a general, six-month spread of life.
    Use a ouija board for something like that.
    (BTW – the whole “reverse” readings on cards is a fairly “new” tradition – the old ways just read the cards – they are what they mean, no matter how they fall.
    EDIT- Don’t care how many thumbs down I get – that’s the way it is.

  4. I tend to agree that a pendulum would be better for simple yes or no questions.
    But, I have also heard of asking a question and drawing a card in the way answer #1 describes – upright=yes, reversed=no, and the card itself gives further insight into the reasoning.
    As always, with divination – don’t rely on it for every decision you make in life – it should only be used as a tool for occasional guidance.

  5. I don’t usually like to ask yes/no of tarot, but one can usually guess at them if a desired outcome is known. For example, if you really want a job, and ask “Will I get the job?” and the cards all show happiness, success and other positive things, that means yes. Whereas, if they showed sadness, disappointment and negative things, it would mean no.
    However, it’s usually just easier to get in the habit of asking “What will come of __job___ for me?” or something more like that in the first place.

  6. simplest way that I do it:
    shuffle deck 3 times (just person perferance). deal out three cards face down. One at a time flip over *i do from left to right flips and order, but it doesn’t matter on that much detail, but I keep the way i deal and look at cards the same in every time i read them*.
    How I read that I stated above but then once I have the general up down done, If i have any further questions i look at each card that was drawn and see if there is a deeper meaning there by the card that came up. . . I can’t give a great example of this that I have come upon because I use 2 decks on and off and how I read them is different then someone else.
    but short example:
    Will i be able to afford this trip to FL?
    if it comes up 2 yes and 1 no, I’d go and look at the cards to see what could be the effect of the no card and be aware that there might be an obsticale to over come or be aware of for my trip.
    that’s just an example.

  7. I’ve seen it where there’s three cards laid down, and the upright or reversed cards that have the most end up indicating the answer. Two or three upright mean yes, in other words. If all three are reversed, then it’s an emphatic ‘no!’

  8. Depends on the the issues surrounding the question you want to have a yes or a no answer to. You should be able to see from the individual cards whether they mean yes or no. They don’t need to be inverted or the right way up initialy.
