Before bed tarot spread layout & questions to ask

Before bed is the perfect time for reflection and tarot. This six-card spread is a great way to get clarity on any question or concern you may have before falling asleep.

A bedtime tarot spread is a great way to unwind, to give words to the whispers in your head keeping you up. I know that a lot of us have trouble sleeping.

It’s a typical reason people come to see me for help with anything from stress, illness or pain relief. We all want to be able to get a deep and restful night’s sleep every day but sometimes it can feel like an elusive thing we may never achieve.

What if there was something you could do before bed that would make your troubles easier? Something that will hopefully give you the aid you need to relax now fall asleep deeply & quickly plus enjoy your tomorrow! 

So this is my favourite tarot reading spread for getting some quality shuteye – this is my new go-to recommendation when having trouble sleeping. It starts with an affirmation for each card to bring added peace.

To begin, shuffle your tarot deck and draw a card for each position as shown in the below layout.

Finally, take some time to reflect on the questions that each card position represents and what message the tarot cards in that position might be trying to tell you. If you’re just starting to learn tarot, or if you’re still getting to know your deck, you may find my in-depth articles on the meanings of every tarot card helpful.
