If you are new to Tarot or not, it’s always fun and beneficial to perform practice readings for faux Querents.
How to find or create practice question and clients:
A good place to get practice questions are from Dear Abby or any other advice column¹.
Another good place is to find practice questions is from Tarot sites/blogs that post anonymous reading or their free readings. In fact, I find it interesting to compare my reading to theirs. I’ve always learned a lot doing that. Especially if we happen to draw the same card(s).
Read for a character from your favorite novel, movie, poem, song, etc.
Create Your Own Querent & Question
- You can also pull cards to create both a question and a Querent. For example: For the Querent, stick to the Courts or archetypal Majors. For the question, you can draw a few cards.
If I drew the Ace of Pentacles, Two of Swords and the World. The question could be: I’m starting a new career and I’ve been put in a awkward position to make a tough decision. What can I do to ensure it will all work out?
- A fun thing to do is to write out common questions about love, work, etc. on separate pieces of paper, put them in a hat or bag and pull one. You could also add a specific ‘Querent’ by writing down careers, ages, gender, relationship status, etc. and pull one from each category.
- This great idea came from a member at TABI who offers a monthly practice question.
