Reading Tarot cards is helpful in developing psychic and intuitive abilities. It can be useful to tap into your strongest element (earth, air, fire, water) in developing these skills. Take this quiz to discover your primary element as a psychic intuitive.
1. A close member of your community falls stricken with illness. You are most likely to:
a. Feel sick as well. In fact, you’ve been feeling oddly, periodically ill for a while leading up to the hearing the news.
b. Have a dream about it, hear voices or see ghosts/angels, and/or have numerous intellectual conversations about the circumstances.
c. Somehow understand that person’s deepest fears and desires throughout the process of healing or dying. You feel drawn to action - offering your chillest friendship vibes and laughter in support.
d. Have an emotional anxiety attack at some point after a period of denial, in addition to all of the above.
2. You are single and on a date with a new person. Your best sense of whether this person is a mate you desire is:
a. Your physical attraction level, how safe and comfortable you are, and also your “gut.” Your body never steers you wrong.
b. Your conversation together. You like to feel stimulated intellectually and humorously. You also like to feel respected in these areas. You have randomly similar interests.
c. Their assets. You’ve wasted time in the past with partners that have fallen short, and that doesn’t really work for you. You like to be able to imagine your bright future together. You could ultimately fall for anyone who fits the bill, eventually.
d. Their “depth.” You are inspired by long bouts of deep, penetrating eye contact and tension-filled courting periods.
3. You are looking for a new source of fiscal flow, and you’re considering branching away from your current career path. To choose a direction, you:
a. Stay rooted where you are until you’re super ready to make the move. You consider where your current skill set might be applicable in other markets. Location is key.
b. Use the powers of your human connections to explore opportunities. You seek stimulation and intellectual growth, above all.
c. Dive into that passion project full force. You have a job to do, and the world doesn’t have time for you to toddle about in jobs that don’t matter.

If you answered mostly “a”:
Your strongest psychic element is Earth. Your intuition likely most often shows up as sensation in your own body, mirroring the physical symptoms of those around you.
As a result, your physical health is important to maintain, for you’ll need integrity in that area to interpret what you feel as feelings arise, knowing what sensation comes from within and what comes from outside influences.
You may find yourself sensing things with your gut. You have a grounded sense of physical reality.
Your assignment is to practice watching your body for sensational clues into the world around you, especially as you read Tarot cards. What part of your body lights up in response to the card? Practice body scanning as meditation. Keep your home & person clean to elevate your intuition.
If you answered mostly “b”:
Your strongest psychic element is Air. You are a mind reader psychic.
You may hear and see things that somehow aid or inform you, and you may also feel as though your head is filled with random thoughts, possibly from spirits and/or people around you/connected to you.
These thoughts likely appear as thoughts in your own head. Your magic is invisibly powerful, and can make you seem a bit nutty, so it’s important to practice focusing your mind.
Breathing-focused meditation, yoga, or some form of cardiovascular exercise will increase your skills as an airy intuitive. Practice noticing “inauthentic” thoughts that don’t quite feel like they came from within your authentic being. This is your psychic nature showing up.
Be sure to travel often, or meet new people often, as this more of a necessity than a luxury.
As you turn and read Tarot cards, let images and words pop up. Speak, describe, or write them down as they come. You are likely to find your answers in the process of engaging with them creatively.
If you answered mostly “c”:
Your strongest psychic element is Fire. You understand the motivations of those around you, and you may find you are especially skilled in the art of seduction, hypnotism, and/or general manipulation of the world around you.
You can probably walk into a party and know exactly who’s hooking up with who, or who wants to, anyway. You have excellent business instincts. Your shadow doesn’t scare you, and you tend to feel very protective of those you fiercely love.
You also crave power, and not necessarily in the sense that you’d like to use it, you’d just like some more. Though, if you did use your power, you’d be nothing short of successful in your endeavors.
You are perhaps the most powerful psychic intuitive of all, in that you are the most likely to easily grow in skill and power over a short period of time.
Your homework is to practice focusing on the fire within the Earth. Peer at a candle flame or burning fire for five to ten minutes regularly, focusing your attention on the wildness and warmth of the flame, and how it may help you help others.
Hold a blade in your right hand, if you like. Let the blade be a symbol and carrier of your power. Be responsible with your abilities. Fire transforms and consumes as it provides heat and drive.
As you turn and read Tarot cards, focus on your desires and passion points. These will lead the way if your heart stays true.
If you answered mostly “d”:
Your strongest psychic element is Water. You are seriously, deeply intuitive, likely noticing yourself in nearly every possible answer within this quiz.
Water is the most fluid element, and also the most overwhelming if not used with caution. You may find that you feel the emotions of others as your own emotions, or as anxiety if negative emotions are pushed against.
Your mental health may suffer if awareness of this gift is not realized. You are an empath, able to absorb and transform emotions with your energy. You feel deeply connected and sensitive at all times.
You feel as though your senses change in their level of sharpness and sensitivity throughout the lunar cycle, or periodically, flowing in, flowing out. You are likely moody, especially if dehydrated.
Drink lots of water, take tea and lingering baths sprinkled with herbs and oils. Be luxurious in your self-care and self-love. Become water, don’t be swallowed by it.
As you turn and read Tarot cards, practice noticing your emotions as they occur during your reaction, or your querent’s. When you notice emotions, they sometimes disappear quickly. Make note of each emotion, watching as though you are watching someone else. Derive guidance from what you learn.
