Tarot : Basic Spreads for Beginners

One card draw

The single card reading is used to provide a concise reading, keeping the focus succinct and to the point.

This type of reading can be helpful when requiring a more defined answer, it’s like looking at a reading under a magnifying glass!

The one card tarot draw is the simplest possible tarot spread. But simple doesn’t mean easy. 

Drawing a single card for a tarot reader is like painting a picture with a single color. It requires imagination, innovative thinking and keen perception.

Ideas for a single card spread :

  • Daily focus point
  • Life mission
  • Current state
  • Defining personnality
  • Near future
  • Lesson to learn

Two cards draw

A two cards tarot spread can be extremely powerful because it is open-ended and leave you to come up with the solution or figure out the projected outcome yourself.

It gathers the duality of ourselves and the world surrounding us to bring insightful advices.

Rather than predict the future, they show the pure dynamic at hand and help you find the answer/solution within.

It’s a very flexible spread – the two card positions can be adapted to suit all kinds of questions/needs.

Ideas for a dual card spread :

  • Do/Don’t
  • Problem/Solution
  • Present/Future
  • Past/Future
  • Internal/External
  • Flaws/Strenghts

Three cards draw

It doesn’t matter whether you are a tarot beginner doing a reading for the first time or a seasoned professional with decades of experience – a three cards tarot reading will give you the crystal clear insight you need.

You can get really deep with just three cards.  

It offers clear and straightforward answers to otherwise complicated problems. The minimal setup allows room for discussion between you and the querent.

While you can use a three card tarot spread to explore motivation, gratitude, or self-reflection, most people use it to look at the past, present, and future.

Ideas for a trinity card spread :

  • Past/Present/Future
  • Problem/Cause/Solution
  • You/Other/Relationship
  • Situation/Action/Outcome
  • Position/Aspiration/Path
