3-Card Daily Tarot Spread | Everyday Tarot Reading

Last Updated: May 25, 2022

As part of a self-care routine with tarot, I think it’s important to check in regularly with your deck. They can offer you responses just as close as a best friend, with hard truths and soft support.

Do you ever feel like you could use a little guidance and support throughout your day? If so, this daily tarot spread (with a 3 card spread) will help you to get clear on the energy surrounding you today, what to focus on, and tips for added success. Give it a try each morning to set yourself up for a really great day!

Most people just want to pull one card for a daily tarot reading, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, if you want a little more clarity and support, this 3 cards daily tarot spread will give you just that.

I have created the below 3-card tarot spread as a way for you to get some clarity on what the day ahead holds for you. Getting some hindsight on what to expect during the next 24 hours can help you plan and prepare for potential challenges, as well as take advantage of any opportunities that might come your way.

Here’s how to get started: Take a deep breath and relax. Focus on your plans for the day, if you have your question or the energy you’d like clarity around. Then, shuffle your deck of tarot cards however you feel called to. Once you’re finished shuffling, cut the deck into 3 piles and choose one pile to draw your first card from. Set that card aside, then do the same with the remaining two piles until you have 3 tarot cards total.

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.

Tarot card #1: Today's vibe

The first position in this daily tarot reading represents what surrounds you today – the current energy, influences, or people in your life. It will give you some insight into what kind of day it will be and how you should approach it based on you, your behaviors, and your preferences. That is how I feel tarot “tells the future”.

Tarot card #2: Where to focus your energy

The second position advises you on where you could focus energy to ensure you have a really great day. This may be an activity, behavior, or thinking pattern you can adopt to help make your day more successful.

Tarot card #3: How to make the most out of your day

The third and final card will give you a tip or piece of advice for added success today – something to keep in mind as you go about your day. This can also be what you can expect if you put the focus and energy from position two into action. It’s like a positive affirmation at the end of your reading to let you know that good things are on their way!

This daily tarot spread is great for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, as it is more about the energy of the cards and yourself rather than an in-depth meaning for each card. You can go deeper, and pull clarifying cards when you need to, but the simplicity of this spread is to help make you swiftly feel more prepared and supported for the day. 

Remember, the messages are meant to guide and support you – so take them with a grain of salt and use your intuition when interpreting them for yourself. If a message doesn’t resonate or you’re unsure, why not research additional card meanings for their different perspectives.. or book in a reading with me? 

Warmest wishes for you always, LB x
