Single Card Spread

Single Card Spread

The single card spread is also called a one card spread.  This is the easiest spread to do.  If you do not understand or have a question in your heart about something that has happened in your life and you want to get an easy answer, then use this spread.

Draw one card, place it face down in front of you and ask away.

This spread works well when you are asking yes or no questions.  There is a yes or no answer for each and every card in the Tarot decks, so find out your answer and if your answer can simply be answered with a yes or no.

You can look up the meaning and the yes or no question from each of these card categories:

  • Suit of Swords
  • Suit of Pentacles
  • Suit of Cups
  • Suit of Wands
  • Major Arcana

Write a short paragraph about the spread you have in front of you and keep it in a personal journal.  This will help you remember the cards and help you have a longer time to interpret what they mean for your past, present, and future.

Use your journaling to help yourself grow and to challenge yourself.  Write down all of the things that you have faced in your life, and let the cards guide you and help you.

Suit of Swords

The Suit of Swords helps to tell thoughts and personal things.  The Swords are there to look deep into the mind, and the element of the Swords is the element air.  These cards can remind you of what you have done and the fears and challenges seen to reach goals.

These are cards that are mainly represented in the Swords suit.  These cards can be associated with conflict, and not all people are able to reach their goals or what they are working towards.  The Swords also represent personal intellect and how you are able to logically see things instead of how the emotions control you.

Suit of Pentacles

The suit of Pentacles is a symbolic card that has different symbolic meanings.  This can be satanic worship or Wiccan’s belief and is seen in different religions.

Pentacles represent wealth and the Earth element.  This deals with wealth, being materialistic, having possessions, and income.  The Pentacles represent more than wealth; but they represent being grounded and taking care of your life.  You can take care of issues that can be fixed and have goals and obstacles along with desires.

Suit of Cups

The cups represent the vessel and the element of water.  Different cups show you different things, such as the Suit of Cups, which usually deals with females and emotional situations that come in life.

Some symbols are used with these cards, and the vessel is usually something that will hold liquid, which is considered a female (cup).  So when looking at the Suit of Cups, it represents someone that will think with logic and someone that is strong in their spirituality.

If you see the cups a lot when a reading is happening, it probably means that you are someone that is very emotional and that you are personal to what the reading is telling you.

There are times when your emotions will be good and times when they will be bad, so if there is a reading that you get and it has a lot of cups in, chances are it can be either a good reading or a bad reading.

Suit of Wands

The Wands cards are also known as the rods, and they are part of some of the Tarot decks that you can buy.  These are part of the magic part of the tarot reading.  A Magician will have a wand, and so do witches and wizards.  They use the wands to cast spells.

The wands will show when there is energy in a reading and when things need to be accomplished.  The wand will show you that you can affect other people if you are around them.  Your desires affect others.

Major Arcana

The first set of cards in the tarot set is the Major Arcana, and it is different than the Minor Arcana.  The Major Arcana is divided into allegorical symbols called the Journey of the Fool instead of suits, like a regular playing deck of cards would be.  So using tarot cards will be a symbolic journey, and it can help you interpret all of the things going on in your life.

The Major Arcana will show you a scene that focuses on people, and it will have different descriptions and different symbolic meanings.

If you want to understand the cards better, you can ask your psychic to give you a Tarot reading.  This can allow you to learn to understand the meaning of each of the cards.  If you want to have a highly recommended expert to do your reading, contact someone at PsychicOz.com for all of your tarot card reading needs.
