Q: How does the tarot deck know what I want?
A: Having a question is the best way to do tarot. It can be something as simple as: What should I look for today? Should I take the job offer? What do I need to know? You can ask as abstract or as focused of a question as you desire. Just keep in mind that sometimes the question you ask, is not always the one that is answered. You may have a question lingering in your subconscious that needs the answer more than whatever you asked. Sometimes the cards actually know more than you realize.
