Hierophant and Emperor in relationship tarot card spreads?
Whenever I ask questions about this guy I’m starting to see (who I really like) and our growing relationship – I get the Hierophant and Emperor a lot in the spreads. But I have a hard time interpreting what it means in regards to him and I.

What do these cards indicate in regards to a relationship or male of interest.

Thanks for the help!! These two cards have really been puzzling!

Suggestion by nondescript
If you look for correlation in the cards, you’ll find them. It would be more unusual for cards to all appear next to no other cards in previous deals. That’s just the nature of such combinatorial statistics.

The only thing the cards should tell you is that you’re interested in this guy. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be fiddling with cards to try to predict your future with him.

Other than that, the cards just tell you how you shuffled the deck. It’s meaningless.

Suggestion by opinionatedlilbugger
What layout are you using and what are the placements of each? That will determine much of the meaning withing the reading.

Suggestion by Kelly
He’s going to be naturally smart, with strong instincts. Great common sense and charisma. Both of these cards represent thinkers who emotionally stable and connected with their thoughts and emotions.
Neither are show-boaters who put thought towards stuff before they act or speak. They do not leave the first sign of trouble. The Hierophant is a little slower moving in the relationship department, and is very intuitive. The Emperor has a bit of fire and may became a little jealous at times.

Different Tarot card spreads(I’m getting tired of my old ones)?
I want tarot card spreads that focus on the future. Or tarot card spreads that mainly focus on the future but give you parts of your past to give verification to the person that this(tarot reading) is real. Not a hoax. Most of my clients only believe there future when their past and present cards were accurate. So what are some good spreads for telling your client mainly about their future.

Suggestion by Lukas Xavier
>Most of my clients only believe there future when their past and present cards were accurate.

And you think the correct response to this is to just stop trying to read the past?
That tells me so much about you.

Suggestion by tarot
Why not do your own? I have never used any “spreads”. I personalize all my readings for the person/situation.

Suggestion by ice magic
this site has all the spreads you could imagine!!

Tarot card spreads, what does it mean?
So if i had a tarot card spread with 17 cards, what does the top line mean? My mum says it means it will happen within the next 12weeks. Is she right?
Also what does the celtic cross one mean, what does the first cards mean?
Thanks 🙂

Suggestion by Splash Frog
It means you played with pieces of cardboard with pictures on them. Nothing more.

Suggestion by Cletus
It means nothing. Tarot is superstitious rubbish. Just like Astrology.

Suggestion by carolyne
It is not about the kind of spread that you do (or the number of cards that you pick)! Before you do any spread, you should have determined in your mind which position will be focusing on which matter! I give you a basic exemple: 3 cards spread can be past-present-future.
Make sure your mind is clear before you do a reading, otherwise it is worthless.

Do i need certain tarot cards to do certain spreads?

Do i need certain tarot cards to do certain spreads?
I have a Tarot card set (the complete kit) and i bought it at barnes and nobles it’s the mega mini kit haha. It has all four suits and the major arcana. I was wondering if i can do love tarot spreads and any other kind of spread using these cards, like do you need certain tarot cards or are these fine? because i know the suit of cups is about relationships and all the others mean something too, so i was just wondering.

Suggestion by mike b
If you have the full set you can do any reading there are no special packs to do separate reading subjects.

I need to know more about tarot spreads?
Okay I have to write a short story for school and the story involves tarot cards. I have researched a lot on tarot cards but the only thing I still need to know are tarot spreads. Lets say a person randomly walks into a fortune teller’s shop and wants a tarot card reading. She doesn’t have any questions about anything she just wants a regular reading. So what spread would that be? how many cards would be dealt out?

Suggestion by Geezah
Different readers do it differently. They might start off with a simple 3-card spread, or a full 10-card “Celtic Cross” spread, or something else.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
There is no one answer for this question. There are many spreads that can do what you are asking about. As a matter of fact, all of them can. Questions are done differently.

I use the Celtic Cross Spread. I was taught an extended version which uses 19 cards. After the initial reading, the client may ask any question that has not been answered in the general reading. I use 3 to 5 cards to answer questions. I may get the answer in the first card or have to use more. It all depends.

You can look for more here

Suggestion by Maralee Fox-Heins
If you are looking for something beyond the typical Celtic Cross, I suggest going to my site:
I have sixteen different spreads there from my highly anticipated book, “The Ultimate Tarot Spread Guide.” Just be sure to get my written permission first and give me proper credit if you plan on posting them anywhere or using them for anything beyond your own personal use of reading for yourself.

Joy to you,
Maralee Fox-Heins

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
Just google your question and you will get lots of information. It really doesn’t matter what spread you decide to use as long as you feel comfortable with it. It isn’t a good idea to change spreads often so pick one and stay with it.

How many 3 card tarot spreads can you do in one sitting?
I know you really shouldn’t do it on yourself, or so I hear, but I was practicing because I was bored and it actually came out kinda true, so I did it again and yea you get my point. But how many can you do on yourself until it’s considered “cheating” or whatever. I don’t really know too much about tarot readings and stuff.
I hope this is the right section….
A 3 card tarot spread. It represents your past, present and future.

Suggestion by kenkitsune
it depends on what questions your asking about your self. there are loads of personal tarot spreads, including those to find love, ask questions, or decision making. i do alot of spreads atleast a few times a week and i don’t consider it cheating. things like tarot are made to guide you through your life. I even do tarot readings for friends when they have questions. None of us consider it cheating, and alot of people will laugh cause they don’t think its real.

when i usually stop is when i get tired. i mean physically tired.

Suggestion by Peter B
3 card spreads are a good way to practice. But they’re rather useless unless you have a lot of other information. As for doing readings on yourself, the cards will tell you if you’re pushing the limit.

What is the best book/ website to learn Tarot and Card spreads from?
Would really like some good recommendations. There are tonnes of books out there and want to know what people have found useful.

Suggestion by Scorpio – to see Tarot Reviews… usually about the deck’s beauty and appeal, but it’s a good starting point to go look for the deck that would attract you… This site has the biggest listing of Tarots in print (international)… The owner of the site reviews and analyzes Tarot Art. – you’ll find all sorts of Tarot decks here… – place to learn Tarot at your own pace.

The Tarot is something people innately understands, because its symbols are from a collective memory, a world memory.

Good luck on your quest.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
My personal opinion is that Tarot is best learned in person and hands on. You can find classes at a Metaphysical school or New Age book store. These type of classes also give you the benefit of exchanging ides and practicing on other people to get comfortable with it.

I need a simple Tarot Card Spread that i can use for performing readings for other people?

I need a simple Tarot Card Spread that i can use for performing readings for other people?
I don’t need it to be complicated at all as i am very new to this, it would be nice if it would be a very general spread that could answer a variety of questions someone might have.

Suggestion by vid
One of the best and easiest spreads for answering questions is the Past, Present, and Future spread. It’s a three card spread and the first card is laid to the left–past–the middle card–present–and the card to the right is the future. This can answer a variety of questions and shows the person’s past on the matter, present, and future. It’s also best to add a timeframe to the question so they know that the card for the future will happen within that timeframe.

Tarot card spread for someone who has died?
Im trying to focus on a friend of mine who has recently passed away, i just want to know if he is in a safe place and maybe bring some understanding to why things happened the way they did when he passed away. If any one knows a good spread for this i would be very grateful. Thanks!

Suggestion by vamp boy
This will not work because the tarot tell the future and someone who is dead has none.

Suggestion by Athena
I think you might be better off trying to use a ouija board for that. I am sorry for your loss and i hope you find what you are looking for.

How to design your own Tarot Spreads?

How to design your own Tarot Spreads?
you can answer directly here or give me some sources.

Suggestion by Bethany
You can literally design your own. You have a discrete number of areas about which you wish to enquire: love, finances, the past, the future, the present, bad influences, good influences and so on. These may be arrayed in any manner as seems fitting to you.
The easiest spread, of course, is simply one card: What does the future hold?
Another, three cards in a horizontal line: past, present and future.
Designing your own layout, one that appeals most to you, can only be beneficial in bringing you and your cards closer together and making them a more effective tool.

Suggestion by Helruna
When designing your own spread, first determine what the theme is: love, work, a specific issue or a more general outlook?

Once you’ve determined what the theme of the spread is, think of what aspects are involved, and base position meanings on that.


Question – how can I best prepare for my exams?

Possible aspects that you might like to look at:

What is my greatest block / obstacle in keeping up with the studies?
How might I consciously be undermining my studies?
How might I unconsciously be undermining my studies?
What study regime might be best for me?

I hope this makes sense. Once you’ve taken note of what factors come into play in the given matter, double-check if there might be too many (like, if it’s getting into the high tens / twenties … it might get a bit “crowded”). Try to focus on the most important factors / aspects.

Each factor than is a position in this spread. You can try to arrange the positions in a visually appealing way … but, well, that’s up to you.

And, that’s basically all I know how to design your own spread. I usually just look at the question at hand, take into consideration different factors that come into play or might be important, and that’s it.

Hope that’ll help.

Tarot: Majority of spreads are mostly made up of court and trump cards, common?
Is it common to have the majority of your cards in a spread be court and trump cards? It’s energy seems ominous. I might be overestimating it, tho.

Suggestion by Pam Richards

It can be said that readings with a majority of Major’s can mean that life is not within your control at this time.

A majority of court’s can show that others will have a greater say, which of course can lead to conflict.


Suggestion by Ding-Ding
It’s not all that common. A reading with a majority of Major Arcana cards can mean the situation is out of your control. A major life lesson needs to be learned. The timing of Major Arcana cards is usually the event is occurring now, in the present time. Court cards can indicate events, but in most cases they do represent people in your life. The Major Arcana may be pointing out issues that need to be resolved with a person, or it could mean that person has a message for you (especially the Pages).

Also, some of the energy from the negative feeling cards is somewhat negated if they are in the ill-dignified position (reversed).

You may want to reshuffle the cards and do another lay-out asking for clarification on the last reading.
