Many tarot readers are not fond of yes no tarot card readings, but you are very likely to encounter someone looking for a quick yes/no answer. When you have a question, you need the answer to quickly, this type of tarot reading can offer quick and simple advice. If you are anxious or, on the contrary, excited, about events awaiting you in the future, the yes no tarot reading can help dispel your worries. Since this reading can be quite tricky, here is a guide to help you through.
How does yes no tarot card reading work?
The yes no tarot reading is based on a simple principle. You ask a question and draw cards to receive a yes/no answer. For some people, this is a great way to receive answers, because they get them quickly and clearly. However, the future is not set in stone, because each of us creates our own destiny. As a result, the yes no tarot reading is limiting a person in a way to a single answer.
Tarot card readings aim to tell a story, to explore different perceptions not coming from your conscious mind but told by the cards and interpreted by your intuition. Because of this, such readings help you uncover the bigger picture and decide which course of action to take. The yes/no reading, on the other hand, gives you a single response, which might change as you move forward and make your own decision.
Overall, the yes no tarot reading is, on one hand, a quick and easy way to get an answer to your question. On the other hand, there is a question of to which extent it fits with the overall idea of tarot readings.
How to ask yes or no questions
Wondering whether there is a right or wrong way to ask a question when performing your reading? Definitely. The best questions for the yes no tarot reading are simple yet very precise. If you want to get the most accurate answer, make sure that your question is simple and straightforward, focused on a single issue or topic. Do not try to merge two questions into one – you can always do another quick yes or no reading.
To avoid confusing responses, make sure that your question is very precise and clear. If you are asking a very broad question, for example, “Is my life good?” you might not get the answer you seek. That can happen because such broad answers can lead to a “yes” in one sphere of your life and a “no” in another, confusing the cards and confusing you. Try to focus on a single aspect of your life and include it in your query. Your previous question, for instance, can be rephrased into “Is my life good in terms of career?” or something similar.
Yes or no reading techniques
There are several techniques you can use to do your yes/no readings. Let’s look at some of them.
1. Upright or reversed
The most basic way to do a tarot reading is to divide your deck into upright and reversed cards. The easiest way to do this is by cutting the deck, turning the cards and then shuffling them. When you are performing a yes no tarot reading, simply think about your question and choose one card from the deck. If this card is in the upright position, the answer to your question is “yes,” and if the card is in reverse position, the answer is “no.”
2. Giving a meaning to each card
If you do not want to use the upright/reversed yes or no reading, you can also give each card a meaning before choosing one from the deck to find your answer. There are cards the meanings of which are pretty clear, while there are also those you might not be sure about. If this is the case, you can introduce a third answer to your question which is “maybe.” It is very important for you to decide on the meanings of each card before you start the readings so that you do not misinterpret them.
3. Adding the “if”
We mentioned before that a yes no tarot reading is somewhat contradictory in a sense that it typically gives you an answer without interpreting it. However, you can add a more in-depth reading to the yes or no question. For example, you can do it by adding the “if” element which depends on the card you draw. For example, imagine you have decided that the Star tarot card means a positive outcome. Now, when you ask a question and draw the Star tarot, you can answer it with a “yes if…” adding the meaning of the card in the interpretation. For instance, if you ask, “Will my career take a turn for the better?” the answer can be, “Yes, if you are willing to work harder on your current projects.”
4. Three-card spread
Another basic yes no tarot reading layout is a three-card spread. For this method, you will need to think about your question constantly while drawing three cards from the deck and laying them face up from left to right. Then, count the number of cards with a “yes” meaning and the number of cards with a “no” meaning. The answer to your question will be the one represented by more cards. Unlike the single draw, which only gives you a straightforward answer, the three-card spread also helps to give more room for interpretation of the cards.
What can you ask the cards?
There is really no limit of topics that you can ask about in the yes no tarot reading. If there is something you are struggling with, go ahead and consult the cards – they will give you insightful information. But if there is something on your mind that could completely change your life, keep in mind that the cards give guidance in decisions and they do not decide for you. Turn to the help of a professional psychic reader to get insights into your situation so you can think about the right course of action.
Now that you have the required information about yes no tarot card reading, you can start testing this approach to get quick answers to a few of the urgent questions about your life.
