Yes or No in Tarot

How to determine yes or no answers in tarot

There are many ways of determining a yes/no answer to a question. Work with the different methods until you find the one that suits you. The Tarot will predict the most likely yes/no answer, so when it is for example 70% a yes and 30% a no, the tarot will say yes. There are ways of predicting if it will be more or less 0%, 50/50, 75/25 or 100 % chances for the yes answer to happen, with the ‘what are my chances spread’ described in Method 2.

Method 1, the use of Tarot Aces:

This method uses the 4 aces to determine a likely yes/no. Shuffle all the 78 cards. Divide the deck into 2 piles, with 39 cards in each pile. Turn one of the piles upside down so that the 39 cards in the pile becomes reversals. Then shuffle the deck together until the 2 piles are mixed well together.

Divide the deck in 2 with your non-dominate hand, and put the bottom pile on top of the top pile. Start turning cards over one by one until you turn one of the aces over.

If the Ace is upside down it is a likely no. Notice the suit, and have a look at the cards surrounding the Ace. This will tell you why it is a no and also how likely it is you can turn it around so it becomes a yes. Look at the other 3 Aces in the deck. Where they upside down or right way up? 3 upright aces tell you that you will soon get another opportunity.
If the first Ace was right side up the answer is a likely yes. Look at the suit of the Ace and the surrounding cards to see if it is a 100 % yes or if it will be a close call. Look at the other 3 Aces in the deck. If they are all turned up right it is a very positive sign, and it strengthens the yes answer. If they are turned upside down you must be careful not to miss your chance.

Method 2: The Use of the Wheel of Fortune tarot card

Pull out the Wheel of fortune tarot card + 9 more (random) cards. Shuffle them up and lay them out in front of you:

Card 1: 100 % YES

Card 2: 75 % Yes

Card 3: 50/50 (Yes and no equally possible)

Card 4: 25 % Yes. A no is more likely here.

Card 5: 0 % Yes. 100 % no.

Lay out the cards so that two cards fall in each position. The position where the Wheel of fortune falls gives you the answer. The card it shares a position, with explains why it is either a yes or a no.

Method 3:

The easiest way to determine yes/no in tarot is to reverse half of the deck and shuffle the reversed cards into the deck. Think of your yes/no question. Cut the deck as you normally do. Lay out the cards one by one. If the Wheel of fortune card shows up upright it is a Yes. If it shows up reversed it is a No.

Another Easy way to determine yes or no in tarot

Method 4:

The last method does not use reversed cards. It uses the Sun (positive answer) and the Tower (negative answer). In this method, if your Yes is a negative your Yes will be the Tower, but if Yes is a positive Yes is the Sun. For example: Will I get the dream job I applied for: Sun means yes and Tower means No. But if the question is: Will I get fired from my dream job (just an example question), then Tower means Yes and Sun mean No. You get the picture. Shuffle and cut the deck as usual. The card that shows up first when you turn them over one by one is your answer. This method can also be used to time events. For example: Will I reach such and such goal within 6 months. If Sun shows up before the Tower it means Yes. If Tower shows up before the Sun it means No.

The Absolute Easiest way to determine yes/no in tarot

Method 5:

This is the absolute easiest way to determine yes/no in tarot, and my Favourite method. Shuffle and cut the deck as usual. If Wheel of Fortune shows up before Death card it is a Yes. If Death shows up before Wheel of fortune card it is a no. In this method, Wheel of fortune is a yes whether yes is good or bad, and Death is no whether or not no is good or bad. This is the easiest way to determine a yes/no answer in tarot, and this is the method I use the most. I find it to be very accurate.

    Hi Kerry, what cards did you get?
    Cheers, Inger

    So, I received Ace of Swords (upright), and it was surrounded by (I will do two to the left and two to the right) left: knight of cups (reversed) & judgement (reversed); right: 5 of wands & 8 of wands. The rest of the aces were upright except for ace of pentacles. What would you say about this? I consider is strong yes, with perhaps a few hiccups along the way.

    Thanks, Nia

    Hi, Nia. I would say yes as well…Upright aces are always a good sign for a yes 🙂
