Are you someone that is curious about Tarot cards and readings? Maybe you have tried this for yourself, but you don’t know what the difference is between the spreads. Here is an understanding of the different spreads:
One Card Pull
A one card reading can answer questions that you have that are straightforward. The answers can be clear, and you can use the one card for things such as:
- Yes or no questions.
- Getting reassurance on something you need to feel good about.
- Getting guidance.
Shuffle the cards and pick a card that you feel out of the deck. See how it makes you feel. Trust anything that you think in your mind and think about your first impression. Do you see a color or a word on the card that gives you information? Take action on the card. Focus on the question you asked.
Three Card Spread
This spread is very popular, and many beginners use it. This can answer questions such as:
- Questions about the past or future.
- Actions and outcome.
- What you want in life.
- Where you want to be.
- Your relationships.
These things are endless, and you can use this spread for almost anything. Set your intention on what you want and then pull out three cards. Give each of the cards a meaning in your past, present and future. Once you ask your question, see what your answers are and what messages you get.
Celtic Cross Spread
This is one of the most popular reading spreads. This can help if you are trying to find love and get details. This is one you will use often.
This is associated with the Celts and will help you with a circle and a cross forming. You will use 1 and 2 cards for the cross.
See that this sign means wisdom and the symbol of the four elements can be where your spiritual destination is. Meditate on what you lay down.
The left side of the cross will have 6 cards and will move clockwise and up. The right side will have 7-10 cards and the upward will have 7 and the bottom 10.
