How To Answer Yes Or No Questions With Tarot

To discover a simple “yes or no,” you need only draw a single card. “Yes or no” tarot readings are ideal for short-term questions

What is a yes or no tarot reading?

“Yes or no” readings are not ideal for multifaceted questions or complex situations.

How Do You Answer Yes or No Tarot?

In a “yes or no” reading, you have two methods for interpreting meanings in a single-card pull.

Method 1:

All cards may be read in terms of their upright meaning, then interpreted as “yes” or “no.” For example, the Five of Pentacles card generally signifies good fortune when reversed and misfortunate when upright. But in a “yes or no” tarot, it usually means “no” no matter its direction.

Method 2:

Take the orientation of the card as its meaning. Upright cards signify “yes,” reversed cards mean “no.”
