I am completely new to Tarot and still finding my way around. I am trying to learn the best approach to phrasing questions and using correct spreads and in the process I have completely confused myself with the way I have been asking questions. I was asking questions in a very fated way and now understand the influence of free will and that questions are better used as guidance and if phrased in a positive and constructive way. I don't want to disrespect the cards or the process by re-asking but I feel I could get much more out of the reading if I redo this now that I have a better understanding of how to ask questions.
What are the general thoughts on rephrasing an re-asking questions to get a better and more accurate reading? Does this show lack of faith in the original reading?

It's more than okay to ask the cards for clarification. You aren't invalidating the previous readings, you are just asking for more precise answers. Nothing wrong with that. And as long as you are telling the cards you are still learning how to read for yourself, and still learning your style of reading, they will more than assist you.
There are no hard rules for doing tarot. You do have to have an open-mind and listen to the cards. You do have to be ready for answers you might not like. However, if you need to shuffle and draw several times in order to get clarification -- that's fine. (I am quite unorthodox in that I don't ask my cards questions. I just shuffle and draw -- usually a 3 card draw. If I'm stuck, then I'll be draw for clarification, but all my decks have accepted that I am THAT person who is not going to start with a question. But many, many people do start with specific questions and that is also fine too!)

wildrosespeonies: If you need a Robb Stark fill, with a happier outcome, I rec "Medici Masters of Florence" on netflix, with "Walder Frey" even making a cameo to marry off his daughter to poor Cosimo. (I KID YOU NOT!) Still not over Lena being a tarot reader though.

wildrosespeonies: Today I completed my studies of the 22 major arcana. (It has taken me 2 and half years before I slack.) Now onto the minors! I love as I get more decks putting the pictures by each other to see how they compare/contrast.

wildrosespeonies: But I STILL will pull out that guidebook when I do draws. It is really more the minor arcana is why I started doing the card studies. Cuz i can never remember how they differ.

HOLMES: what did you use,, the living the tarot book , was it a course or a self goal ?
Apr 25, 2019 1:11:40 GMT
wildrosespeonies: Self goal. I don't have time to sign up for actual card studies class even though I know many places offer them online. I use the guidebooks that come with the deck(s) for reference when I can't recall a card.

wildrosespeonies: Also, I think guidebooks are underrated. They can put more detail into the illustrations and some of them are pure poetry. (Mesquite and Pagan Otherworlds being my favorite guidebooks for that reason -- language is amazingly used)

HOLMES: a book written for the deck can be excellent if it adds , the tarot of the elves talked about the story behind the minors, one was really sad.. the hudes guidebook , and robin wood was awesome .

wildrosespeonies: Ooh, Marigold Tarot's print guidebook is finally coming along. I think I'm gonna pass on the pouch though. That box is very sturdy.
