Here are the two methods I’ve used and know to be more accurate than just guessing. Accuracy has ranged from 50-70%
[quote="-TWF-, post:1, topic:1906"]I’ve been working with some different methods of doing a yes/no question with the Tarot. The best method I have found is shuffle the cards while meditating on the question. Then with your hand on the deck as if you were about to cut the deck intuitively feel where to stop and cut the cards. The card on the bottom of the cut is your answer. If the card is a positive card the answer is a yes if the card is a negative card the answer is no. If he card is a court card use the qualities that card represents to give you the answer.
The problem I have had the most is with court cards as they have many different traits and can be easily misinterpreted. Keep a journal of your predictions and the card drawn to help clear up this confusion. Thought I would share this with you guys.
Lady Eva shared this method, I’ve had about 60-80% accuracy with it
[quote=“Lady Eva, post:9, topic:1906”]Apologies if you already know this (I’m new and haven’t read the archives yet) but the website tarot.com offers a Y/N reading, in which you draw 7 cards from the major & minor arcanas, having first removed the Wheel of Fortune, you then shuffle the 7 cards & the Wheel, and lay them in four positions, in this order: Yes, Yes Maybe, No Maybe, No.
The position where the Wheel turns up is the answer, and there’s always useful info to be gleaned from the cards in the other 3 positions, especially if you do just a little clairvoyant gazing over the cards, so if you asked “Will I get this major new promotions” and the answer was "“Yes, Maybe” but then your “No” position held the Fool you might see what person or aspect of your own personality of situation you could look at, for example (not a very good one! lol) - and the myriad of other ways of reading the cards as well, eg if your question is about some new romonatic interest and loads of a certain suite or type of card keep turning up, and so on.
Anyway that’s how they handle it, it costs like $3.50 I think per reading from them, I’ve been using that site for about 7 or 8 years now (sheer laziness like buying a take-out meal) and never had a reading steer me wrong, including on some pretty serious stuff, and I did a few Y/N readings on that format with my own pack and they were also accurate.[/quote]
Both methods have proven to be more accurate on game day when betting on sports but the method Eva shared is far more easy as it leaves out any room for interpretation.
I’m looking into different methods not using tarot (pendulum, domino oracle etc.) and will share when I find something worth sharing.
