Tarot is a decks of cards that usually (but not always) consists of 78 cards. It follows a common system of symbols and storytelling of the Hero's Journey but each deck has a different twist or meaning to the cards.
A tarot reading is reading the cards, getting the messages from the drawn cards. It usually reflects the seeker's mind and feelings. It can offer different perspectives in a situation. Sometimes, under some circumstances, it can show a possible prediction but no future is set in stone. So regardless of how strong a prediction is, at any given time, anything can change the outcome altogether. So a tarot reading can give you many things, can help you clear your mind, see where you are and where you want to go. How good a reading can be depends on the seeker, the reader and the relationship formed between them.
2) Is tarot "evil" or bad?
Is a hammer "evil" or bad? Like hammer, tarot is a tool. It's playing cards with pictures. It was used for games in history. Unlike hammer, tarot can not kill or physically harm a person. So tarot is actually less "evil" or bad than hammer. Short answer: NO!
3) What should I ask for tarot reading? Best questions to ask?
It's best to get a tarot reading when you have a specific question. Any question related to your worry is a valid question. Worry about love? Career? Money? etc. The more specific the question is , the more useful a tarot reading is for you.
Best way to ask a question is to provide some context or background information. For example, instead of asking "will I and X be together?", providing some details about the relationship such as you're currently in relationship, or you're fantasizing about the relationship will give more clarity than just answer such general question. If you're asking about something abstract or not very applicable in real life, tarot will give you something as abstract. Tarot is a reflective tool so vague or ridiculous question result in nonsense answer. Example? It's not really practical to ask if you're half vampire.
Last thing is depends on the reader, some questions are off-limit. It's always a good idea to read their policies. For example, I don't read medical or legal question. So for me as a reader, those questions are off-limit and I just flat out refuse to read them.
4) How often should I get a reading?
As often as you want. It's best to wait at least a few weeks before asking the same question again. If you repetitively ask one question, you don't give the situation time to play itself out.
5) How to have a good tarot reading?
First, pick a reader that you feel connected with. Then, ask a good question (read question 3). Remember to keep an opened mind, the answer you get is not always the answer you want to hear. Then, if the reading makes sense to you and you feel positive "vibes" from the reader (feeling the reader is sincere), stick with this reader. Express gratitude and stick with one reader will usually help readings. It's a positive energy exchange, a reader feels trusted and appreciated will be more confident and energy will flow easier. If the reading doesn't make sense to you, think about it. Is it because you want a different outcome or is the reading makes zero sense? If it's the latter, you can either give the reader another chance (due to blockage or bad day) or go to a different reader.
6) What is my style of reading?
I read intuitively. I'm also very practical (being in a science field gives you this strong trait). I'm brutally honest but also have a quirky side. So I don't sugarcoat things. I tell it like it is. If it's not good news, I say it not good but in a compassionate way, I don't lie just to make you feel good. I'm also an empath so I can feel the energy from you. If I sense that the connection is not good or the energy I get doesn't resonate with me, I'll refuse to read (if I sense it early on) or recommend you to go to other readers (if I sense it later, after the reading). My priority is to help you and to give you a good reading, if I feel it's not the best for you, I'll recommend you something else for your best interest.
7) Why do I read tarot?
I enjoy it. Most tarot readers don't make a living out of just reading tarot. I helped others and their positive feedback gave me great satisfaction and motivation to help out others too. I initially do it for free. But lack of feedback or even a "thank you" drains me so I have to set a price for this exchange of energy. Unfortunately, most people will appreciate something of value if they pay. Until this changes, my energy and my time is not something I take for granted to feel drained or negative. So I read for enjoyment and for helping others but I set prices depending on my availability and the exchange of energy.
8) Can anyone read tarot?
Yes, anyone can pick up a tarot deck and start learning how to read for themselves. The trick is reading for yourself is one of the hardest thing. As you feel emotionally involved in a situation, the reading will often reflect your state of mind, rather on what you want to know. Also, some people have better skill to read than others. Just like math, some do it better than others. So I usually don't read for myself and go to a reader if I have something important to ask.
9) How accurate is my reading?
From the feedback I have, it's fairly accurate. It's different for each person. Time and future is fluid. Even the smallest thing can trigger a change. So it's empowering but for predictive purpose, it's undetermined. A tarot reading is for guidance, not telling you how life is going to be. You have to experience it yourself.
10) Do I offer refund?
If I refuse to read for you and you already paid, yes, I refund you 100%. If you find my reading unhelpful, I'm not the reader for you but I can't refund you as the reading is done and I can't get my time and energy spent back either. Just when you see an unsatisfying movie, you don't get your ticket refunded.
11) You sound harsh and have so many rules. Why do I want to read with you?
I always set boundaries and put all the cards on the table (figure of speech here :D). I set all the rules up front and in a straightforward way so you know beforehand what you're getting into. If you don't like it, obviously you don't have to do anything, I'm obviously not the reader for you.
