The Tree of Life Spread comes from the Sephirot of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and is a spread that makes you look deep inside of yourself. Inner, self-examination is a positive even if some negative information surfaces.
The tree is used as a way to understand how you are related to things and how things are related to you. This spread helps you to have goals that are of this world.
Always start your spread by having a clear and open mind. Believe in the universe. Shuffle the deck and then draw ten cards. Place the cards face down in front of you in a box-like spread with cards in a line at the bottom. If you are not sure what the cards’ meanings are, look them up, and you will be able to interpret your spread.
These cards represent different things, such as:
- Reaching your highest goal and your ideas on your goals.
- A driving force such as a person or an event.
- A card that will help you in life.
- A card that you will hold close to you is important to you.
- The impact that your goals will have on other people in your life.
- The state that you are in with your health.
- The people that you will meet will influence you. They might be lovers, friends, or strangers.
- What career you will take in life.
- Things that you do not know that is hidden inside of you. These can be desires that you don’t realize you have.
- The world and your physical self.

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.

Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is one that 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 of air. These cards can remind you of what you have done and the fears and challenges that were seen in order to reach your 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 beliefs 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, obstacles, and desires.
Suit of Cups
The cups represent the vessel and the element of water. There are different cups that show you different things such as the Suit of Cups is one that usually deals with females and emotional situations that come in life.
There are symbols 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. This is 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.
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.
