11 Tarot Card Spreads for Guidance

We’ve come to your rescue with these easy tarot spreads. Whether you’re a tarot beginner or a tarot pro, it’s always helpful to get some tarot spread ideas. Of course, you’ll need a tarot deck first. Once you have a deck, get ready to read!

What Are Tarot Spreads?

For those who don’t know, a tarot spread is a specific layout of cards geared toward answering specific questions. Before shuffling the cards, you determine what questions you’d like answered and configure the placement of the cards. Shuffle, pull, and reveal the answers. It’s that easy!

Hint: If you’re not ready to take on a tarot reading of your own, one great place to start is by getting a live tarot reading from a professional.

Types of Tarot Spreads

Are there different types of tarot spreads? Yes and no. 

Tarot spreads are not meant to be categorized. They can reference different topics and will have different variations of cards, but (besides the Celtic Cross) there aren’t “set” tarot spreads out there. The beauty of them is that they are totally flexible to be anything you need! 

You can make a tarot spread about anything. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. If you’re a little wary about making your first spread, we have some easy ones to start with here.
