Don’t let the client abuse your energy.
In doing your reading, don’t let your client sap your energy. Let them know that there is a limitation of queries to ask. Because sometimes there is a querent who will take you for granted. And will asks everything they want to know. Then your session will take longer. It causes your energy to sap dry, and you will not do a reading for the next hour.
Do not interfere in the lives of others without their consent.
Always maintain a professional demeanor. Tarot should not be used to find out gossip. Be sensitive and always respect other people's privacy, especially when they are in pain. Don’t use it to your advantage to meddle in someone's life. Don’t make gossip out of it. Keep it between you and your querent. Always practice professionalism.
When you are not mentally and emotionally stable, do not read.
As the tarot reader, you are the primary tool in conducting a reading. You should be physically and emotionally fit because your tarot reading is affected if you are not feeling well. So, if you are sick, it's better not to do tarot reading, tell your querents to go back when you are ready.
Set a time limit for your tarot reading session.
Inform your querent that you have a time limit for every session so that it will not last any longer.
Avoid questions about topics in which you are not an expert. Always be truthful about what you can only read. So, avoid questions about death, pregnancy, the law, and medicine.
Before performing tarot reading, you should familiarize the meanings of all the tarot decks. It is one of the first things you should do before doing anything else. And, for you to have an accurate tarot reading.
Be creative and experiment with various tarot spreads.

Don’t rely upon one tarot spread. Instead, think of more possibilities to shuffle your cards. Do different spreads, experiment on various shuffles, and feel the connection between you and the tarot.
Respect your reader's Limitations
Consider your reader's limitations. Expect that there are questions that he can’t give you exact answers to. Don't sap their energy by asking too many questions. Use a specific query to get a more accurate reading. You should respect their boundaries and don't take them for granted. And, remember that you are not the only querent. There are a lot of you waiting for him to do a reading.
Find a reader who shares your enthusiasm.
Finding a reader who matches your energy level is ideal. Because your aura, his energy, and the aura of the card will resonate with each other. And giving you greater accuracy in your fortune reading. So, find someone with whom you feel a strong connection.
Expect anything in return.
A tarot card reading is not free. Though some tarot readers offer free reading if they are a beginner, it is still polite to ask if there's a need for payment. Keep in mind that many of them are doing it for a living. Don’t just go to them and ask for free advice, do expect that it has a price involved too.
Don't ask closed-ended questions.
Don’t ask questions. Like, what will happen tomorrow? Where are we going to meet? What is the color of her clothes? Don’t ask your reader this kind of query because it’s close-ended. The reader and the card can’t give you an exact answer to this kind of query. So always ask a question that is answerable by the tarot card.
Don't expect everything to resonate.
Don't expect everything in a tarot reading to resonate with you. Remember that not everything that happens in your life is good. There are always unpleasant fortuitous events too.
If you disagree with the result you received, do not ignore it. Treat it as advice. And make a plan in advance to avoid unpleasant events in the future.
