Hey guys! It’s been a long time but I’m working on some posts for later. I’m probably am going to work on a reversed version of the cards for next time. Thanks for reading!- Samantha

A lot of witches talk about Tarot, about the questions you can ask, how to cleanse your cards, how to memorize their meanings, and more.

However, rarely have I seen any witch talk about just sitting down with your cards and chatting with them.

In this way, I mean not having a question to ask them beyond, “Whatcha wanna say today?”

This, unbelievably, is how I developed a relationship with my Tarot cards.

To read Tarot, you don’t have to have a question before you begin. Sure, if you have a client then having a question is the best course of action (and is needed); however, if you’re having a one-on-one and are trying to develop your relationship, sit down with your cards and treat them like you would a friend.

Start a conversation.

Ask their opinion.

Tell them about your day.

Let them tell you about their day.

(And on and on and on, ya know)

Your cards are more than just cards. They are more than a business proposition or venture. They are more than just a tool for you to use whenever you deem them appropriate.

You grow, they grow. You stop talking to them, they will become silent too.

So, talk to them. About nothing, about everything. And watch your relationship grow exponentially.
