Going Beyond Yes Or No To Get To The REAL Answers You Want In A Reading
As a professional reader, I get a lot of callers who are curious to find out if their exes will be calling or coming back. Most of the time, these people are calling on my instant reading line, where time is of the essence.
Even though many just want a simple “YES” or “NO” from me, I always, always, always advise that a person digs a bit deeper into the question, because sometimes a simple YES or NO isn’t as simple as that.
Consider this scenario: You’ve just broken up with your boyfriend because you caught him hiding provocative text exchanges with a co-worker. You want to know if he’s going to call you.
I get a positive card – The Magician – and you are happy that he’s going to call you. “When?” you ask. I get the Eight of Wands, implying very soon (or in 8 weeks, depending on how you read timing in your cards). You are all kinds of happy because he’s going to call… but, when he calls, it’s just to arrange the details of getting his name off of your lease.
If that’s the case, you’d likely be thrown WAY off. That’s why I advise people to take a more in-depth look at the question.
If, for example, I’d gotten the positive response about him contacting you, coupled with the Eight of Wands – then we see what you need to know about him contacting you, and I get the Ace of Pentacles, reversed, we know it isn’t to profess his undying love for you but to move on. The Two of Cups, when reversed, just emphasizes the fact that this isn’t going to lead to a rekindling of your romance.
Even though it might take a minute or two longer for me to get to the bottom of the question, you will be given information that will allow you to properly prepare for the call…
And really, if you explained to me that he was hiding provocative texts (leading me to the impression that he isn’t the most honest character), the Life Coach in me would wonder if you truly want this guy back in your life – and I’d ask you about that, too.
The same with the question: Will I see my ex soon?
I could tell you yes, you will see him soon. The cards might even show an encounter in the near future. But, will you be rekindling your romance or meeting his new girlfriend?
A few more cards and a little more time might make the difference between you getting your hopes up because you’ll see him – as in him inviting you out for a date or trying to rekindle the spark, or the encounter causing you some heartache.
In order to best answer your questions, I’ll try to direct you to the right questions to ask. I’ll want you to look inside yourself and try to connect with what is best for you. Do you need to work on letting him go so that you can move on to a new, better relationship?
Simple YES or NO questions aren’t the best for tarot, anyway. Here’s a way to expand on a simple YES or NO reading, to get more information about what is going on.
As your advisor, I’ll try to get more answers from you a lot of times, as some cards require a bit of information to properly interpret.
I’ll ask questions related to the cards that come up, like: Is the Queen of Wands (a self-confident, self-assured, fire starter kind of person) you or is it the ex? Do you need to embody more of that energy to move your relationship to the next level? Is HE the Prince of Cups (all looking, but not much action – puppy romance or a crush from afar, reversed is a porn addiction), or is that someone who is coming into your life or the mood of the relationship?
You see, as a reader, I look to you for clues and cues about what the cards mean for your specific case in the reading. Of course, I can straight up read a spread, but your input will make it much more personalized and fitting for your situation.
I see using the cards as a way of exploring what is and the possibilities of what might be coming, not like a crystal ball to foretell a future that’s carved in stone.
I’ll ask questions. I’ll direct you to more questions. I’ll try to prepare you for what’s coming up – and that isn’t usually as simple as a yes or no.
And that’s why I recommend scheduling a longer reading. Honestly, I can do the “quicky one, two here’s your answer” kind of reading – BUT it might not cover the entirety of your situation or give you the kind of details you need.
A longer reading – at least 20 minutes – allows you to have the time to explain your situation to me. It allows me to explore your feelings and your own intuition about the situation (something the life coach in me loves to do).
