Well, the questions I ask usually don't have right or wrong answers. Such as, should I ask her out? I use this spread when I want to find out more about a question/issue, but when I also want some sort of yes/no direction or bias as well. I have gotten quite a few results that really helped me make a decision that I was comfortable with, and the outcome of the situation was good.olivia1 said:from your experience, how accurate was the answer you received?
I hope you didn't take offence to my quip, "How should I know, dummy!?!" I absolutely wasn't refering to you, I was just trying to portray a flippant, sarcastic answer. I don't think you are being critical. I have found your feedback very helpful.olivia1 said:and sorry if I sound like I'm being overly critical. I'm just a bit sad because I had so many yes/no questions I was dying to ask this spread.
I don't think any question is too loaded! To use your question as a great example, you asked if you are going to have a cordial discussion with someone. There is someone else involved and thus a lot of variables. I think the spread works for that question but cannot provide a definative yes or no answer. (I don't think the Tarot can do that with any spread.) If you changed the question to: is it worth trying to have a cordial meeting with M? I think the Tarot could potentialy give you a definite answer to that question. It is less about the issue and how loaded it is, than it is about the type of question.olivia1 said:i was making a point. from the PM you sent, it seemed like just about every question that could be asked (that wasn't as mundane as the weather) would have been too loaded of a question for this spread. Even traffic questions "will leaving an extra hour earlier mean a more significantly less stressful commute?" seems too loaded.
I agree, I was only trying to illistrate a point with that analogy. The point was really, if anyone wants to know if it is going to rain, a weather report would be more helpful than the Tarot.olivia1 said:not everyone who watches or asks for a weather report has something scheduled or a great emotional investment in whether it does or not...definietly not one that should be so great that it skews the answer. some of us just want to know whether or not we should bring an umbrella or not .
I obviously don't think you should give up on the spread, but you are quite welcome! And I hope your situation works out for the best for you!olivia1 said:Anyway, I'm glad it worked for you and I'm sure it will also work for others. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions, JSNYC, and hopefully (for those who were a bit confused like me) that they now have a better understanding of the spread you were so kind enough to share with us all.
