Different tarot card layouts or combinations can give us various insights or perspectives for the questions that ponder in our heads. There are multiple tarot spreads that can be used in different circumstances. However, a basic three-card and five-card tarot spread can still give you a significant amount of information for the answers that you seek or the story you wish to construct. In fact, starting out with a three-card tarot spread will help you understand the much more complex layouts. Keep reading through the article to check out the five variations that you can create.
1. The Linear Spread:
You can create a series of events with a three-card spread. This means that you can come up with scenarios in your head that will give you insight as to what might happen in the future. To organize a three-card spread in a linear manner, you could, for example, think about yourself, think about a person that you’re interested in, and whether you would engage in a relationship with them or not.
2. The Foundational Spread:
You can create a three-card spread with three scenarios in which the first two scenarios will depict two situations, and the third scenario will be a conclusion of whether you agree with scenario 1 or scenario 2. Think of it like this; someone has told you that brown sugar is healthier (scenario 1) than white sugar (scenario 2). Your judgment as to what you agree with will be the conclusion (scenario 3).
3. The Balanced Spread:
A tricycle with only two wheels would lose its balance and not work properly. Similarly, a three-spread layout without one of its cards would not be a balanced spread. This means that the three cards rely on each other, and without one of them, the structure would collapse.
4. The finance spread:
To solve your financial issues, you can create a three-card spread in the following order; 1.Which finance-related issues am I facing? 2.Do I possess any finance-related skills that will help me generate a solid source of income? 3.Are there any opportunities out there that will help me generate money in abundance? This three-card spread is a great combination that will help you find a solution to your financial problems.
5. The Crossed Spread:
You can overcome obstacles using the three-card spread. The crossed spread basically refers to a three-step process in which you face a challenge, think of ways that will help you overcome this challenge, and finally eradicate it. One can always use the crossed spread when such situations arise. For instance, you need to study for an exam; you’ll gather the relevant material for studying and eventually ace your test.
Tarot card spreads are not only limited to three or five-card spreads. In fact, you can construct layouts that are based on 10, 12, and even 20 cards. Using a bigger layout requires a little patience and practice, which is why starting with the three-card as well as the five-card spread is a great way to improve your tarot reading skills.
