Best 3 tarot spreads for beginners
These are the best 3 tarot spreads for beginners to get started in an easy and mindful way:
One card a day
The One card a day is the perfect basic way to get started! You just have to shuffle your card and pick one card. While shuffling your cards you must think something like “What do I need to know about my day”? and see what message the tarot cards have for you. Don’t think this is too basic. When getting started, you need to focus on each card to learn all you need to know about them and their secrets. This is a great way to connect with your tarot deck as well.
2 Cards Cross
The 2 cards cross is just amazing! It’s a wonderful spread to get to know your tarot cards and how they combine with each other. You can start with a basic cross to then take further steps to give a Celtic cross a try. Yes, that beautiful spread you see basically everywhere online! You just have to ask for a question and then see which cards show up. I love this spread and often use it to identify obstacles I might encounter and so much more! It can also enhance your starting one card a day practice. If pulling one card is unsatisfactory, you can pull another and place it like that to let these cards tell you more things you need to know about your day.
3 cards spread
The 3 cards spread is just great for beginners but also for more experienced tarot readers. There are many ways to use this kind of spread, but the best way to use it is to go for past/present/future or Situation/Problem/Tip to handle it.
How to choose the right tarot spread
If you are a beginner, I highly recommend you start with the one card spread and then try the 2 cards spread and then the 3 cards spread to truly build your knowledge of your deck of cards and their unique, individual meanings. If you are a newbie, spend more time on one card at first and see how it goes. You will know when you are ready for an upgrade trying a more complex spread.
How to use tarot spread for beginners
You can use your tarot spread for beginners as a way to learn more about the cards and connect with your deck, all while starting to know yourself from a different perspective. Here are some tips on how to use your tarot spread for beginners.
Journal about each card and how to learn more about them
As each card shows up you can journal about each card. You can do this writing down how you feel about a specific card or you can find the meaning in a book or in a guidebook about tarot cards meaning. The choice is up to you. Simply do what feels best for you; it is best to live your tarot journey with a relaxed and open heart.
Keep your cards with you or in display
I love to keep the cards of a spreads right there on display. I can use them as a reminder of the kind of messages and energy I need to carry with me to have a successful day. Often, we are a bit too busy and not truly centered to acknowledge, appreciate and cherish the guidance of our tarot cards. Sometimes we can even find ourselves struggling a little bit to get the message and the meaning of the cards. Don’t forget the answer is already there, inside of yourself. You just need to let your intuition be open enough to get it and accept it. Some tarot readers use tarot holders for this, but it is not required. Simply place the cards in a place where you feel is calm and that you truly like. That’s the perfect place for them!
