Let's get some real answers.
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
“Yes or no” readings are not ideal for multifaceted questions or complex situations.
In a “yes or no” reading, you have two methods for interpreting meanings in a single-card pull.
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.
Take the orientation of the card as its meaning. Upright cards signify “yes,” reversed cards mean “no.”
All tarot cards carry diverse and fluid meanings. You can interpret each one differently, depending on the question asked and how it’s drawn.
