50+ Free Tarot Card Spread Ideas For Beginners & Advanced Readers

I publish new tarot spreads regularly!

A tarot spread is a pattern in which many cards are placed. There can be a specific spread for any questions you may have, may they be related to love, health, career, the future, and much more. Each card has its meaning to each person who reads them, but also has its position or spot within the layout. In this board, I share my tarot spreads for you to try, where they will help you find the insight you need.

Our tarot spread ideas are super fun and suited for beginners and experienced readers alike! Feel free to pin them and save for later, and share with friends who may like them too 🙂

The best thing about utilising tarot spreads is that it’s a low energy practice that can actually improve your relationship with divination; you start to ask new questions that you weren’t utilising before. It can help you as you start to learn tarot too, as the placements can show you how a flow in a tarot reading works and builds definitions to you. Reading tarot for friends or family can be really fun with some of these ideas below but please tweak them for your own practice and rephrase questions too – make it personable, enjoyable and magick!
