Tarot Spreads....what are they exactly? Well that isn't an easy question to answer as there are millions of them out there but I'll do my best to explain the basis behind them.
From my posts or if you have ever had a reading you will have seen a layout of cards. These are called Tarot Spreads. Spreads are tools that every Tarot Reader uses. Like any tool they must understand how it functions and become skilled at using it. All Spreads come with strengths and weaknesses. It's up to the individual reader as to which one they decide to work with. It is also up to them to choose the most appropriate Spread for their client and which one they are drawn too depending on the client's situation.
A Spread can be made up of any number of cards, with each card having a certain position and meaning within the Spread. All spreads have a different title depending on what it shows you. The most well known Spread is the Celtic Cross (will post about this is in the next few days). Most Readers have a collection of Spreads they like to use. Some Readers will even create their own Spreads, or adapt the ones they use already.
Reading cards engages a Readers intuition and logic. The images and symbols speak to their subconscious minds and from there they can recognise the messages from the universe. Tarot Spreads are like the conscious mind. They sort out and organise all the amazing raw data that is triggered by the cards so that a reader can interpret and apply it to a situation. Spreads provide structure, it gives a Readers eyes and minds somewhere to start. A Spread produces a framework to be able to clearly communicate the answer to a client 🔮✨#tarotspreads #tarotspread #celticcross #logic #intuition
