How To Use Tarot Cards To Predict The Future

A complex subject, prediction has numerous facets. I cannot say what I want to convey in a single article. I can, however, direct you in the proper route.

Here are my top twelve suggestions for using Tarot cards to accurately foretell the future.


Understanding fate, destiny, free will, and how they all relate to Tarot reading obviously involves many different concepts. I will, though, make an effort to simplify things for you.

Destiny, in my opinion, is your ultimate good and your potential realized. God, the spirits, and the cosmos approve of your destiny. When we consider something as being “destined,” we talk about it as if it were “meant to be.” Things that are meant to be in our life appear as though by magic thanks to the universe, God, and the spirits. We can claim that something is meant to be when, for instance, the love of your life and you happen to meet by chance at a bus stop. But just because something seems to be meant to be doesn’t necessarily imply it has to be.

Humans have the capacity to fight for their highest good. You certainly see it frequently as a Tarot reader. You might tell a client that a particular man is unsuitable for them, yet they still go after him. They keep returning despite the fact that you know the link was never intended to be there. They battle against what is and what isn’t intended by using their free will.

Then suddenly fate intervenes. The universe intervenes on our behalf through fate. Your client calls you out of the blue, distraught because their pathetic lover suddenly decided not to love them. Within six weeks of meeting her, their ex moved in with a new girl, got engaged, and became pregnant.

Tarot reading involves more than merely dealing cards and hoping for the best. The cosmic dance of fate, destiny, and free will is being read by you. You recognize that there is a delicate balance between what is under our control and what is out of it. Your readings will be more accurate if you have the thought in mind that you are interpreting this balance.


Many novice (and even seasoned) Tarot readers believe that they must rely on their intuition in order to provide more accurate readings. This is true, but your reading habit also needs to have a spiritual component.

You should always consult your ancestors for spiritual guidance before a reading. Request that they demonstrate the course of action that is consistent with your destiny. The presence of others. The key to success is to petition your ancestors before doing your readings.

I spend a lot of time on connecting to your ancestors in my psychic course because I think it’s the easiest method to establish a “link” with spirit for readings.


The majority of tarot readers are able to make predictions, but they typically do so quickly and forget them. This is particularly true for those who read themselves on difficult subjects like love and business.

Your readings may feel more significant if you have a ritual in place. You will take your readings more seriously and remember your predictions if they feel exceptional. By not taking your readings for granted, you will also be more likely to read the complete spread and less likely to keep throwing your cards at the same problem (more on that below).

Regarding my cards, I have superstition. Not even my clients are allowed to touch them, and I especially won’t let anybody else read cards from my main deck. I develop a “connection” with a deck before I use it for readings; I carry it about with me like a second limb.

I also ask my spirits to enter my space before a reading on top of these rituals. I shuffle and then reorder my cards for critical readings. These are just a few of the preparations I make before a reading.

You must create rituals that are unique to you on your own. Even while it may seem like a lot of labor, I guarantee by God they will improve the accuracy of your readings.

Court Cards are the foundation of prediction, love them or hate them. You can never be able to foretell using Tarot if you can’t read Courts accurately.

Whether you’re reading yourself or your client, or both (if you’re reading someone else), 99.99999 percent of all predictions involve someone else. You are essentially reading the entire universe rather than just one individual.

Our relationships with others radically influence how our lives turn out and how our surroundings are shaped. Our futures are being co-designed by other people. Consider this. The two of you getting along is essential to the success of your relationship. Customers are essential for business success. Success on social media depends on your following.

You must develop your ability to read court cards in order to accurately depict the other persons who have an impact on the scenario.


You must make your intentions clear before you even start your Tarot reading. By making your plans in advance, you may avoid second-guessing yourself and changing your mind when you don’t achieve the results you were hoping for.

Before the reading, you must state, “I wish to know the future of Jose and me,” or otherwise you will merely receive a mound of puzzle pieces that you will need to sort through.


When they lack a predetermined framework for generating predictions, Tarot readers frequently grow dissatisfied with their interpretations. They choose the incorrect spread type for the task, then puzzle about why their reading didn’t turn out as they had hoped.

Employ a Tarot spread with the proper spread locations if you want to use spreads to make future predictions. To create a prediction, you must employ a spread that considers all pertinent variables.

One of the goals of the Celtic Cross’s endeavor to predict the future is its notoriety. The goal of the Celtic Cross is to foretell the when, where, why, and how. All of these elements can be easily combined to create your prediction.

Don’t get me wrong; choosing the right spread becomes less important as you gain proficiency in prediction. But the easiest place to start if you’re not used to making predictions is with a passable spread.


It should go without saying that you must be able to appropriately interpret cards regarding the subject you are reading about. If not, you’ll be perplexed. If you are unsure of what a card signifies when it appears in a specific location, as with the Four of Pentacles in the future of a love reading, you won’t know what it means when it does for you. While learning how to make predictions with Tarot, you must work on this if you are unable to interpret cards for a variety of circumstances.


One of my biggest pet peeves is when tarot readers advise less experienced tarot readers to toss the book away in Facebook groups.

Keep the book; don’t toss it away. Keep them close since, strangely, prediction is unpredictable.

I’ve occasionally read a technique in a book and, since it was so intriguing, made a mental note of it. I would later employ that strategy in a reading after some time had passed (precisely ten years). Something you learn now from a book can be helpful in the future, even if it occurs centuries from now.

Listening to those who have something fresh to say is not a sign of weakness. Additionally, since prediction is elusive, you must continuously learn new things. You never know what kind of information you’ll use until you settle down to that reading. You must continually be educating yourself if you want to be a predictive reader.


Avoid the self-help trap at all costs, particularly when writing for other people. Don’t misunderstand me; there will be times when you should offer counsel. If you don’t have a heart of stone, you will be helping your seekers as well as yourself, but you must go beyond.

I frequently come across readers who offer guidance without providing details. You must delve further. What source are you using for this advice? Who or what is giving this advice? WHY are you advising in this particular way? What circumstance does it relate to?

A prospective partnership with The Tower is a prime illustration. Its demise is apparent. For the partnership, this marks the end of the road. You dance around the problems and give the seeker a lot of self-help advice rather than telling them the facts.

The truth is that you read the Tarot to be justified, not to please.

You might be concerned that knowing the futureespecially when it’s badcan be detrimental. In actuality, you won’t be able to view things that you aren’t supposed to. And there will be things that you cannot expect and are not allowed to witness. However, if you do see it and it is present, you must assume that it is there for a reason and you must share your prediction.

Refuse to conduct experiments on topics you don’t like to forecast if there are any. I won’t read anything about pregnancy, for instance. However, part of the job involves reading about breakups and failed businesses, so you have to get acclimated to the reality.


You possibly develop the habit of focusing solely on the outcome/future placements while doing a reading (especially a love Tarot reading for oneself) and neglecting the rest of the spread. Your reading will be considered invalid if you don’t read the entire spread.

Most of the time, your subconscious intention when doing any Tarot reading is to foretell the future and the result. Therefore, not just the future locations but ALL of the cards in the spread are pertinent to your query.

You must read every section of the spread as if it provides the answer to your query, including the past, present, challenges, other people’s perspectives, and hurdles. Your entire spread balances the advantages and disadvantages. The “outcome” card, which brings the entire reading together, serves as the essay’s conclusion.

Even without a spread with an outcome or future position, a skilled reader can make future predictions. This is so that people can determine whether the advantages exceed the disadvantages by reading between the lines. Read the entire book, not just the last page, always!


I won’t lie; there have been occasions when I was mistaken. I’ve predicted the incorrect things. Being human, I occasionally make mistakes. There have, however, also been instances where I have mistakenly believed that I was incorrect when I was in fact right.

I have left Tarot readings feeling anxious that I had erred more often than I’d like to confess. Or perhaps one of my clients posted something on Facebook that was entirely the reverse of what I had predicted. I felt terrible at the time, but I afterwards realized that my first prognosis had been accurate.

One instance that comes to mind was a reading I gave to a woman. I thought she and her partner would break up shortly. After a year, I noticed a Facebook post announcing their engagement. When she contacted me to let me know they had truly split up after the reading, I assumed there had been no separation. Their reconciliation was marked by the engagement.

Another time, I was the one seeking and had a Tarot reading. The reader said that I would approach my partner at the time so closely to a huge commitment, but he would back out at the last minute. After that, I would meet someone else in a pub.

I took the reading very personally and didn’t want to accept it. My partner and I had rented a house together a year later, but he backed out two days before we were supposed to move in. In that home, I lived alone. Later, I broke up with him. I ran into my ex at a party in front of the bar, and after that night, we made up. He was the guy at the bar. Everything that the Tarot reader predicted came true.

It doesn’t always follow that your forecasts won’t come true in the future just because they don’t seem likely to happen right now. Furthermore, social media posts from your clients are seldom a complete picture. Do not let being ‘wrong’ undermine your faith in your ability to make predictions because you might have been correct all along without even realizing it.


You cannot hold a fear of being incorrect. You must have the courage to express whatever is on your mind and heart if you want to be able to use the Tarot to make accurate forecasts.

Although it may sound strange to say, chakra clearings and confidence-building exercises do not give one confidence when using tarot. Actually, having complete certainty that your relatives are here is where confidence comes from. It results from understanding why you are doing this work. You must trust the process, and I don’t mean to sound like a clich Instagram meme.

Teaching my students how to use signs is one of the ways I help them gain confidence. Working with signs is an easy method of divination known as apantomancy. You only need to beg your ancestors’ spirits for signs, which are physical representations of their presence.

You become more assured in your readings when it is repeatedly demonstrated that spirit is there and the cosmos is in harmony. Doubt disappears. It is evident that you are aware of what will happen. There won’t be any ifs, ands, or buts for you; whether your client disagrees with you or not, a result will still be a result.

Knowing the future with certainty also involves having the guts to inform your clients when you don’t. If you do a reading and the result appears uncertain or you can just make a brief prediction, say! “Yes, there will be a make-or-break debate, but I cannot see what is beyond that,” you should tell your clients.

I place such a high value on reader confidence that I have devoted a full five days of my 21-day psychic development course to it. I not only show you how to sell yourself as a reader with confidence, but also how to have confidence in your readings.

Can you interpret your own tarot cards?

It most certainly is. Tarot is a technique that aids in deepening our understanding of the present moment, honoring our intuition, and predicting future possibilities. Although it might seem complicated, the technique is actually quite straightforward.

Questions you don’t really want answered

Even though it might seem apparent, it’s advisable to refrain from asking the tarot cards questions that you aren’t prepared to hear the answers to. That’s because answers to these questions can reveal information you’re just not quite ready to hear.

“Tarot can definitely come off as offensive if you’re not willing to hear the truth or consider an opposing opinion. Tarot reading Nicole Fortunaso

According to tarot reader and life coach Nicole Fortunaso, “tarot may truly come out as offensive if you are not willing to hear the truth of the problem or look at an alternate viewpoint.” She advises analyzing why you’re reacting the way you are in order to reflect on how to effectively address the underlying problem if you ask the question and aren’t satisfied with the response.

What kind of religion are tarot cards?

Tarot cards also include four suits, but they are different depending on the region: French suits are found in Northern Europe, Latin suits are found in Southern Europe, and German suits are found in Central Europe. Each suit contains 14 cards: four face cards (King, Queen, Knight, and Jack/Knave/Page) and ten pip cards, numbered from one (or Ace) to ten. In addition, the tarot features a unique 21-card trump suit and a solitary card known as the Fool; this 22-card group of cards is referred to as the Major Arcana in the world of divination. The Fool may serve as the top trump or alternatively may be played to avoid doing so, depending on the game. In parts of Europe, these tarot cards are still used to play traditional card games without any occult connotations.

Tarot cards are mostly employed for amusement and divination in English-speaking nations where these activities are less popular, typically with the aid of specially created packs. Although academic research has shown that tarot cards were partially invented in northern Italy in the 15th century (16 of the modern 22 Major Arcana cards) and combined with a deck of four suits, “the Mamluk deck,” some people who use tarot for cartomancy believe the cards have esoteric links to ancient Egypt, Iran, the Kabbalah, Indian Tantra, or the I Ching. The Mamluk deck of cards was created in or before the 14th century and arrived in Western Europe after paper was produced in Asia (see Playing Card – Egypt and following sections). By the end of the thirteenth century, Europeans were making the Mamluk deck with customized “court cards” and suit symbols.

Although some people think that tarot cards were not used for divination until the late 18th century, there is evidence of an early tarot deck that was “used in divination to determine the querent’s prospects in love” (Fernando de la Torre’s “Juego de Naypes” deck of Spain, 1450), each card having an image and verse.

You *Just* Had a Tarot Reading

Unless the reading is about a completely new and specific subject, I suggest waiting at least three months between professional tarot readings. Before returning to the cards, let things to develop and alter.

You Want a Redo

I frequently observe people attempting to “chase the right answer.” People will visit several tarot readers or ask the same question repeatedly to the same tarot reading until they receive the response they desire (which, by the law of averages, does happen eventually). This is basically useless!

Your Question Is About Someone Else

Tarot readings are not the solution if your entire line of inquiry is about another person’s thoughts and actions (such as what your ex is up to). Tarot is meant to help you gain understanding of *yourself,* not other people. (A better option would be to reconsider and rephrase your query as if you were looking for help on how to move past your split.)

You’re Looking for Medical Advice

Simply said, neither physical nor mental health concerns can be diagnosed or treated using the cards. Some things are better left in the hands of medical specialists rather than tarot readers!

What occurs when tarot cards are read?

According to her, “Tarot cards do not predict the future; rather, tarot is a tool for spiritual guidance and allows the reader to connect to his or her inner wisdom.” “Tarot readings assist a person in learning the information required to make sense of a specific circumstance. As readings provide a person with insight into past, present, and future occurrences based on their current path at the time of the reading, decks are best utilized as a tool of inner wisdom and guidance. The cards don’t always predict what will happen; rather, they help a person analyze a situation and choose the best course of action based on what is already known and what the cards indicate.”

How should a tarot reading begin?

If you find this daunting, Howe advises you to take a deep breath and believe in your own initiative. “In order to see it less as “This holds all of these secret meanings that I have to do all this work to access” and more as “I know all the meanings; it’s just a matter of establishing the connections and being able to articulate them,” use language or knowledge that you already possess. She points out that the four elementsearth, water, fire, and airplay a significant role in the tarot, which is advantageous because the majority of people already have an understanding of the meanings of each element. ” If you do that, your viewpoint will be more personal, and you will be able to express yourself more freely.

Howe suggests the three-card draw and the Celtic Cross as the two fundamental spreads for beginning readers. In the former, three cards are chosen at random from the deck to symbolize the subject’s mind, body, and spirit, or past, present, and future. According to Howe, you could even up the stakes and use a six-card draw, with one card for each location.
