With these statements in assumptions in mind, lets apply these considerations to sample tarot questions.
Question: Will I ever be married?
There is no desire to fix the question in a period of time, and the reader can, with accuracy, determine if marriage is probable for the person.
Question: Will I marry next year?
The observer is asked to focus the characteristics of the event (marriage) and a position (time) into a single year. An accurate answer is possible, but has become more difficult. The intent/mastery of the reader is drawn upon more.
Question: When will I get married?
This is the most difficult of the three questions. The exact determination of a marital status (characteristic) and the exact time of the marriage (position) is requested. It could be argued that marriage is a “big” event in a life, and is a target with decent probabilities. On average people marry several times, and the tarot feedback could be looking at any one of the future marriages. But, even with these advantages, the difficulty level for the reader is high for this question.
