Best 3 spreads for love
Self-love tarot spread
How many times you heard people saying you cannot love others if you don’t love yourself first? This is so true and you definitely need to work on your self-love before spreading this feeling to someone else. Maybe you feel a bit low lately, maybe, because of your love life, your self-confidence and self-love is not going strong. This spread is the right one to explore your self-love and learn how to cultivate it even more.
- how do I feel?
- 3 things I love most about myself?
- what do I need to let go of?
- what do I need to accept?
- what I need to cultivate?
- how can I love myself even more?
This is a classic that never gets old! The 3-card spread is amazing to ask questions about love as it gives you an insight on the past, present, and future. You can ask any sort of question, even tough ones. This spread is amazing to have some clarity over a situation.
You can also use the 3-card spread for general readings. Don’t leave the past, present, and future as prefixed and just let the tarot cards give you as many interpretations and tips you need to know about your question.
Cross for love
The cross is another wonderful spread for love and one you can use in many different ways to ask many different questions but, usually, a Celtic cross for love is amazing to learn more about a relationship and what’s hidden under the surface.
- is it true love?
- how do my partner and I truly feel about each other?
- is this relationship going to last?
- what can we do to have a better relationship?
How to choose the right tarot spread
Simply choose what you like! If you are into a spread more than others, you already know it. That’s your spread! Keep in mind that there is no right or wrong when it comes to tarot readings and you can customize your entire experience by creating your own spread and asking your own questions. Tarot readings are yours. They are moments where you and your soul can get in tune with your intuition and let the answers inside reveal themselves to help you live better in many different situations.
How to use tarot spread for love
Choose a deck
Choose a deck that resonates with you, a deck that you love and that you feel a connection with. If you don’t have a deck, buy a new one. Don’t use borrowed or secondhand tarot decks. But if you decide to use them, at least cleanse them before using them.
Don’t rush things! You have to use these moments as a little ritual, a moment to disconnect from the outside world and connect with your inner world. In order to truly listen to your intuition and get the messages the tarot cards want you to have about a certain person or situation of your love life, relaxation is mandatory. Create a little ritual like lighting a candle, taking a relaxing bath, doing something you like, even putting some music on and spending at least 10–15 minutes completely committed to the tarot reading, showing your tarot cards some love and some respect.
Focus on the questions
You should focus on the questions you want to ask one question at the time. Try to visualize it while shuffling the cards and after each card you lay down on the spread, re-shuffle them so you can truly focus on the next question. This is one way, but you can totally decide to shuffle the cards while thinking of your love life and then lay all the cards down and see how they fall into each section for each question. If you are confused and don’t know what to ask just yet, don’t rush this and have a reading that will lead to nowhere. In case you are in a state of confusion, try to journal about it; write a list of potential questions you would like to ask and then try to filter them and choose the ones you truly would like to be answered, those questions that are truly important for you and that, with their answers, can help you live your love life in a better, more positive way.
Analyze the message and cherish it
What do the tarot cards want you to know? A great idea is to write the answer down on a piece of paper or in your journal together with the analysis of the cards you picked. If the messages seems to be a bit confusing, don’t stress out! Maybe you are not ready to hear them yet so take some time and for now, cherish their meaning and think about how this card can be useful. Maybe after a few days you will have a flash in your mind and you will see things differently and the message of the tarot cards will be loud and clear.
