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.

Does anyone know a website for good (free) Tarot card spreads?

Does anyone know a website for good (free) Tarot card spreads?
I’ve got the Celtic Cross memorized, and I can do a lot of spreads anyway, but I don’t think that I’m ready to create my own. I’d like to try out other spreads, are there any websites that you know of with a variety of Tarot Spreads?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What are some tarot card spreads I can use?
I already use the Celtic Cross spreads and the tree-card spread, but not much else. Do you have any to recommend?

Suggestion by Star Light
I use Celtic a lot
Past present future
5 card spread
astrological spread

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
I’m fond of three-card spreads… they give you a good framework and there are countless varieties…


You could come up with any number of spreads that use three cards. I find them succinct and not too confusing… the Celtic Cross has to be one of the more difficult spreads I’ve ever tried!

Get yourself a tarot guidebook… there is often a number of good spreads in books. Also, I’ve found some good spreads online… just look up Tarot Spreads in Google and take a peak at the endless resources you can find!

What are some good Tarot Card Spreads for guidance in my love life?
I would greatly appreciate your suggestions for love spreads. Something that doesn’t require too many cards since I am a novice at this. Thanks so much! && You know I will be awarding the 10 points for best answer =)

Suggestion by in case of emergency mike angel.
most think of the Renaissance as a time of love, so how about that one,?

An intelligent and sensible young person. Dependable and practical person who yet hides mysterious corners of himself and hoards secret treasures. An admirer of the patterns of heavens, the makeup of nature, or the language of numbers.
The card at the top right represents how you see your partner. The Emperor: Worldly authority. Professional success. Social power. The life of action and decision, especially in politics and business. Patriarch, clan leader, and pater familias.
The card in the center left represents how you feel about your partner. Eight of Coins (Prudence): Frankness, honesty and innocence. Candid confrontation of circumstances.
The card in the center right represents what stands between you and your partner. The Hermit: Introspection. Retreat. Pilgrimage. Spiritual quest. The search in oneself and in the world for the “Honest Man” of Diogenes the philosopher. Meditation on the passage of time and the dissolution of matter.
The card in the lower left represents how your partner sees you. Page of Cups: A young person of sensitive and meditative nature, capable of deep loyalty and profound affection. A conscientious worker.
The card in the lower right represents what your partner feels about you. Strength: Strength and fortitude. Moral resolve. Triumph over base instincts. Mens sana in corpore sana (Sound mind in a sound body).
The card in the center represents the present status or challenge of the relationship. Six of Coins (Success): Generosity. Philanthropy. Charity. A wise and compassionate decision.

Suggestion by Astro Lady
You can try the following simple spreads:

1) 3 card spread – Past, Present, Future

2) 4 card spread – year forecast, each card represents one season or 1/4 year

3) 8 card spread (4 each in 2 columns done by 2 people) – the positioning from top-down represents mental beliefs, emotional beliefs, spiritual beliefs & physical expression.

For each spread, focus on the question as you shuffle the cards (6x as 6 is number ruled by Venus) and lay them fan spread out in front of you. Pick the number of cards according to the spread you choose and interpret accordingly as well.

Hello Mel

A well presented question can be read with a single card.

Three cards can also be good.

When picking cards for a tarot spread, for which spreads to you fan the deck and choose?
Usually, I just pick from the top of the deck. Are there specific spreads that you have to fan the deck and choose the cards? When do you know which way to use?

Suggestion by sk
Basically, how do you pick cards to put in a spread?
You can shuffle, mix them up, cut them however you want, throw them. You don’t have to do something different for each spread.
Try using a couple ways and seeing which you like best.

Tarot Card Spreads for gaining Power?
im not sure how simple this is to answer but i need to know the tarot spread for an event leading to gaining influence/power. if more information is needed let me know and i will provide it the best i can.
to expand on the question as to stop people from making bad tarot card jokes. this is for a story, im doing research, my character gets a reading telling of them coming into power (the character will eventually be a leader)

Suggestion by T J
The only way a tarot card deal will help you is if you deal them straight into the dumpster. Then go get an education and work hard. That will gain you influence and power.

Suggestion by EAH
If you see cards like Strength, Chariot, Emperor, Justice, the Sun,
in the cards or in your daily life, that might indicate gaining power.

Try one of the many Tarot forums on the web if your really that interested in it.
You will get mostly grief from the fundies on R&S.

Can I use tarot spreads for cartomancy?

Can I use tarot spreads for cartomancy?
I want to learn cartomancy. i dont know how to do it. is there spreads like tarot? do you use tarot spreads? also can i have a link to a site with the meanings of the cards? or are the meanings the same as the tarot minor arcana, if so please tell me the corresponding suit.

Suggestion by lala
When you talk about cartomancy ; are talking about regular playing cards ? If so [ and it goes for tarot too ] go to a New Age book store ; and will have a great choice of books who are explaining the meaning of all the cards

Suggestion by Pamela
You can definitely use tarot spreads for readings with regular playing cards. But there are spreads that have been developed for cartomancy. There are different techniques. Some use all 52 cards, others, like the Lenormand system use only 36. I found Secondhand-Souls-4occult.com by just doing a search on cartomancy. It has some basic info using all 52 cards and spreads.

I like Mlle. Lenormand’s Fortune Telling site (see link below) for learning some basics about Lenormand Oracle cards and their meanings. Although you can buy a deck with special pictures on it to help you remember the meanings, you can just use a regular playing deck and just remove the cards that are not used.

I wasn’t able to learn all I wanted from the Internet so I got “Fortune-Telling with Playing Cards” by Jonathan Dee, from the library. It gave me enough info to figure out what kind of cartomancy I wanted to learn more about. Plus it has meanings for the cards and suits as well as different spreads used with different card reading systems.

The meanings of the suits are not exactly the same as tarot. You can just read them as the same (Clubs=Wands; Spades=Swords; Hearts=Cups; Diamond=Pentacles) as long as you are consistent. That way your subconscious (or whatever you believe you’re working with when reading cards) knows what the symbols mean to you.
