Tarot Card Spread Basics
How Tarot Spreads Are Used In Tarot Reading The more comfortable you get with the tarot deck, the easier it will become to decipher the tarot card meanings. The same came be said for tarot spreads. There are literally hundreds of tarot spreads to choose from, so to simplify this process, I have listed some examples of different tarot spreads and the many purposes for which they may be used. For the beginner it is important to first understand what tarot card spreads are and how they function. A tarot spread is a configuration of cards laid out in a pre-specified geometric pattern. Each position of each card in a the tarot spread has a specific meaning. When individual tarot cards are put together in a tarot spread, their meanings can be used to form a kind of story. Thus, the pattern of a spread provides the framework for a tarot reading. The tarot reader utilizes the placement of the cards, or the card’s position, with an identified theme. For example, many spreads include positions for the past, present and future. They can also include positions for internal feelings, specific challenges, external factors, and so on. Tarot card spreads have different implications depending on the type of question or issue being explored. Some tarot card spreads relay information in a general way while others are designed to impart information that is very specific in nature. They can also vary in complexity from a simple one card spread to elaborate spreads that can include all 78 tarot cards. The choice of which spread to use depends primarily on the reader and the questions that need to be answered. In a tarot reading, the cards are shuffled by the person being read. This enables the person to have contact with the cards. While the person is shuffling, they are asked by the tarot reader to think of a question or issue. The tarot cards are like magnets that attach to individual energies. Once attached, they pick up information that facilitates the tarot reader in his or her reading. Once the cards are pulled and placed, the tarot reader will begin to interpret the images and positions of the tarot cards. The spread they are placed in adds to the complexities of the cards meanings. The strength of the cards lies in their unique ability to impart a person’s path. It can do this in two ways; by igniting the intuition or psychic ability of the tarot reader and by picking up the energy of the person being read. In essence, it is a marriage. The tarot cards are the bridge between the reader and that of the person being read, and the tarot spread is the architecture of the reading. Once you become familiar with the Tarot, you will want to choose the best tarot spread to suit the particular situation being addressed in your reading. Once you get really comfortable, you may even want to make up some of your own tarot spreads. As a tarot reader it is important to choose spreads that encourage your imagination and intuition. Understanding the placement of the cards is important, but it is just as important to identify tarot spreads that work for you as an individual. They are as personal as the tarot cards themselves.

Tarot Spreads For Love & Intimacy
Using the Tarot as a tool for Intimacy in the partner Tarot Spread Let’s face it, communicating with our partner can be quite challenging at times. It takes a great deal of effort and patience to build a bridge of communication between two people. In order for our intimate relationships to flourish, we need acceptance, compassion and the ability to listen. Relationships require accountability to yourself, your partner and the relationship as a whole. Unfortunately maintaining this level of intimacy on a full time basis can prove to be almost impossible without guidance. In tarot reading, the majority of issues that come up for couples can be broken down into a few skewed beliefs: We do not know how to effectively express our emotions. We depend on and hold our partners responsible for our happiness. We expect our partners to individually meet the variety of emotional needs we have all of the time. Tarot card readings can be a powerful tool for rebuilding intimacy in a relationship. The Tarot has the unique ability to uncover both conscious and unconscious behavior patterns, deepen the level of our awareness (individually and as a couple), and help to determine the developmental stage of a relationship. When done together with one’s partner, the Tarot offers new, informative language to couples, which suggests more effective forms of communication and promotes a deeper understanding of one another. Through the Tarot, a couple can revive their relationship and redirect their path together. It cracks faulty structures and the limited ways of thinking that, so often, plague our efforts towards intimacy. The Tarot encourages a partnership to explore the roles each individual has adopted in the relationship. It is the ultimate tool for freeing oneself of the ego and finding common ground with one’s partner. When utilized properly, many Tarot card meanings can encourage a couple to explore their boundaries and find a new, mutual, freedom. There are certain Tarot spreads that can be done with your partner. One of the most effective is the Tarot Partner Spread. This spread is an excellent tool for increasing the dialogue between you and your partner. I have found that when this is utilized on a regular basis, a couple can re-discover their relationship in an entirely new way. Using The Tarot As A Tool For Intimacy In The Partner Spread For this particular spread, each couple takes turns shuffling the cards. Next, you spread the cards out in a semi-circle in front of you. While concentrating on the suggested questions that I have listed below, each partner will take a turn, pulling one card for each question. 1. 2. 3. What can I learn from you? What do I expect from you? How can I be more supportive?

72 The Enchanted Tarot Deck

4. 5. 6. What do I need to work on to become a better partner? What does my partner need from me? What is the direction our relationship needs to take?

This list of questions is not set in stone. They may be expanded or changed in any way that you wish. Keep in mind, the Tarot has multi-layered Tarot meanings. The information a couple can receive is truly limitless. This simple exercise can deepen both partner’s level of awareness and create a new vocabulary from which to relate to one another. It is a spontaneous and enjoyable way to get to know your partner from a new perspective and hopefully deepen the level of intimacy.

The Three Card Spread
The Three Card Spread is one of the most popular tarot spreads in use today. Its beauty lies within its simplicity. It is incredibly effective at highlighting the energy of one’s past, present and future. This is one of the most dynamic tarot spreads that can be used in a tarot reading to evaluate any number of questions. Are you looking for spiritual balance? Do you want a quick prediction about your past, present and future? Or, perhaps you are looking for guidance on a pressing concern or question? The great thing about the Three Card Tarot Spread is that it allows you to have the flexibility to explore the outcome of just about any situation. You can get creative with the Three Card Spread and place the cards in whatever pattern appeals to you. You may also change the context of the reading and get as imaginative as you want. Below I have illustrated some examples of how this spread can be used and changed according to the needs of your particular situation.

The One Card Spread
Although simple, the One Card Tarot Spread is a very effective spread for problem solving. It can also be used for answering simple yes or no types of questions during a tarot reading. Because you are limited to only one card, it is important that you frame your question clearly. The more concise you are, the easier it will be to interpret the spread. This particular spread is known for its ability to give guidance on how to approach a particular situation. In terms of yes or no questions, it is helpful to incorporate upright and reversed tarot card positions. Although it is not always the case, reversed card positions represent a no and an upright position represents a yes. To begin, shuffle the cards and divide the deck into three piles. While you are shuffling, be sure to focus on your question. Choose the pile that speaks to you the most and pull one card. Place it in front of you. This is the one tarot card you will be reading.

The How to Find Love Tarot Card Spread
One of the most standard inquiries made during a Tarot reading concerns matters of love. One general belief is that true love is something that is outside of one’s self, that it is predestined or an act of fate. In truth, we play a significant role in our own love lives. Finding true love begins within our own selves. The first step towards finding a fulfilling relationship begins with finding love within our own inner beings. The greatest relationships are those in which both partners have discovered who they are as individuals. When one develops a strong sense of self, their partnerships are more likely to thrive. With self-awareness and self-knowledge, one is more capable of expressing their feelings and setting appropriate boundaries. This allows both partners to develop the ability to recognize the areas in which their relationships need to grow. They can also acknowledge their own needs and better understand the needs of their partner. More importantly, for someone that is single, they can come to recognize the traits in a potential partner that are healthy or unhealthy. The How to Find Love Spread identifies the key areas in one’s life that need to be developed in order to bring a loving relationship into one’s life. This represents you and the key issues that are pertaining to your current love life. It often pertains to the emotional aspects that are influencing your love life.

The Self-Healing Tarot Card Spread (6 cards)
Although many people regard tarot reading as a tool for divination, it can also be extremely helpful tool for exploring psychological issues. One such issue we nearly all have to deal with on some level are past traumas. Unfortunately, past traumas can leave “emotional blocks”, and whether we are consciously aware of them or not, these blocks can hinder us from experiencing fulfilling relationships, abundance and contentment. If left unhealed, they can prevent us from growing and finding true happiness. The Self-Healing Tarot Spread can be a powerful tool for exploring our past traumas that may be preventing us from growing in the present. It does this by exploring the areas in our lives that remain fixed. These are the circumstances that occurred in our past that remain unresolved and remain as emotional blocks. Often, these are the scars that we carry from painful experiences from our past that shape how we perceive the world and interrelate with those around us. If you find yourself in repetitive painful relationships for example, the Self Healing Tarot Spread can help to identify the cause as well as provide a path towards healing, growth and spiritual awareness.

The Astrological Tarot Card Spread (13 cards)
All seventy-eight cards of the Tarot should be spread in a fan-shape, face down. The individual may then pick a total of thirteen cards, which are positioned, in the order they are chosen, in the Astrological Spread. The Positions of the Astrological Card Spread Each of the thirteen positions of the Astrological Spread has a specific meaning. The positions and their meanings are: First card/Ares basic personality Second card/Taurus - Possessions This position describes the individual. It can show how he or she normally works through difficulties. This card refers to the current financial situation and how it relates to the problem.

The term ‘final outcome’ is a little misleading, as Outcome the Tarot tend to only reveal a six-month time frame. The Astrological Spread is more complex than many of the spreads used by Tarot readers today. It tends to be best suited to those people who have a working knowledge of astrology and the zodiac, or at least are interested in these things. It is a complicated spread with great potential.

a particular relationship. In general, the Celtic Cross spread has become a major symbol of Tarot. It is regarded as a standard “consultation” spread in the Tarot reader trade, which is attested to by how much it is to be found in books on Tarot. This romantic relationship reading will give you valuable insights into several areas of a relationship, and how those parts interact within you. Possessing 11 positions, a Celtic Cross reading offers enough positions to represent relatively complex situations. Within the wheel-shaped part of the spread is a horizontal axis which represents the flow of outer events from recent past through the present to the near future. The other central axis arises out of one’s history, through the present moment, to focus on one’s Mission or Higher Power. The self and the relationship issues of the moment are at the center of the spread. The column to the right of the Wheel is called the Staff, which can also be thought of as a ladder. The ideas and advice in this part lift one from the plane of dilemma to a higher plane of resolution. Don’t make the mistake of viewing the Past cards as irrelevant to the present or future! Card 1 Card 2 Card 3 Card 4 Card 5 Love & Me. The card in the Love & Me position touches on an aspect of how you perceive yourself right now. Love Situation. The card that lands in the Love Situation position refers to social or circumstantial factors which could be affecting your relationship at this time. Love Challenges. The card that lands in the Love Challenges position refers to ways that you can turn obstacles into stepping stones. Foundation. The card in the Foundation position points to influences from your personal history, your roots and background. Recent Past. The card in the Recent Past position refers to events and relationships that are just departing, recently influential but now diminishing in power. Higher Power. The card in the Higher Power position reflects the broader perspective and influence of your conscience, Guardian Angel, inner wisdom. Near Future. The card in the Near Future position indicates which way the wind is blowing with regard to your situation. If you follow the Advice card, however, you can improve on or neutralize tendencies.

I put together this spread for a friend of mine who is expecting. As she will be raising the baby alone (or at least without the father) she was very nervous about the kind of mother she will be. I thought some of you might like to try it for any expectant mothers you might read for: Card 1 Card 2 Card 3 What in my past has prepared me for this? What do I need to release/move past?

Celtic Cross (10 cards)
The ten card Celtic Cross is the most common Tarot card layout I’ve ever come across. With this popularity there comes the problem of many variances of placement. Below is the one I use with my comments about the interaction of the placements. In my opinion the Celtic Cross works best when used to answer specific questions. Remember to put some thought into the formulation of the question you wish to ask. Card 1 Card 2 The present The immediate challenge facing the querent. You will often pull a difficult card here, which will indicate an obstacle that must be overcome. When you pull a “good” card here, examine it carefully because it will still represent a challenge. Distant past, foundation. This card should indicate the root of the subject matter of the question More recent past, including events. This will indicate events taking place, not necessarily directly connected to the question. For example, if a love affair going wrong Card 3 would show the root of why it is going wrong, whereas Card 4 will show something that recently happened to reflect this. You could see this as a “check comment” card - a way of seeing that the reading is sound.

Card 3

Card 4

109 The Enchanted Tarot Deck

The Enchanted Tarot
The best that can be achieved. This is directly related to the question. Note that this may not necessarily gel against Card 10 - it depends whether you are able to get the best. However, a negative card here probably means that it is worth cutting your losses rather than putting any more effort into the situation. Immediate Future. This indicates events in the next few days or week(s). This reading does not cover months. Factors or inner feelings affecting the situation. Compare this against Card 1 in order to understand underlying forces/trends. If there is conflict between them this tends to indicate that the querent is going in the wrong direction. External influences. People, energies or events which will affect the outcome of the question and are beyond the querent’s control. Hopes or fears around the situation. This may produce a card that confuses us badly. Always bear in mind that hopes and fears are closely intertwined, therefore that which we hope for may also be that which we fear, and so may fail to happen. Sometimes it is useful to draw a second card for clarification after the reading has been laid, and to read the two together. Final outcome. This is a fairly self explanatory card. However it is worth saying that if the card comes up somewhat ambiguous, once again it may be worth drawing three extra cards to clarify. These should be interpreted through the lens of Card 10. So if the card drawn is the Tower and we draw the Ace of Cups, Princess of Cups and Four of Cups in a reading about a relationship, the Tower would indicate that it is time to move on. The Ace of Cup suggests that a new relationship is promised with better things ahead. The Princess of Cups brings new love (and possibly pregnancy). The Four of Cups shows deep levels of contentment and happiness, and many options for progress.

It usually works as advice on how to improve either 1 or 2, but quite often, when 1 and 2 are at odds with each other, it suggests a way to make the two more in harmony with each other.
