Soulmate or Twin Flame Tarot Spread

Last Updated: October 26, 2022

There are hot discussions right now about Soulmates and Twin Flames.

I’ve created this 6-card tarot spread to help you with some clarity and to get answers regarding how you feel, and how to understand your situation more. If you’re still unsure, book a private soulmate tarot reading with me so we can look at this together. This twin flame tarot reading will help you articulate these answers. In my opinion, they are two very different aspects to understand.

A soulmate is someone who compliments you for this life, who encourages aspects of yourself to be better and want to be better. They can be grounding and balancing, to your fiery and energetic. They can offer heart and emotional depth where your logic and scientific-brain come in. 

There can be multiple soulmates as your soul goes through different journeys through life, such as childhood, spiritually, romantically. They aren’t always romantic, but it is magnetic, and you feel a sense of knowing them for a very long time.

A twin flame is someone who is an extension of you, and that you are made from the same stuff cosmically. You’ll both be fiery and energetic, you’ll both have the big hearts and emotional depth. It can be very intense, deeply bonding, and this is where it could get dangerous. 

If you both struggle with shadow aspects, you may have a tendency to bring out the worst in each other. If you have a tendency to overindulge or self-sabotage, your twin flame is likely to be an enabler here because they too are going or have gone through the same process. If you’re lucky enough to have met your twin flame, then strong boundaries will help keep you both nurtured.

Whether you are soulmates or twin flames, you should always keep each other safe and feel respected. Consent should be taken into account and please be wary of any red flags. If you’re not feeling nourished by this relationship, and find it draining, it could be best for you to take a break to work on this. 

What’s important is that you are happy, healthy and safe.

Soulmate or Twin Flame spread layout & questions to ask

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.

What to do after this tarot reading

After you’ve finished a tarot reading, there are a few things you can do in order to reflect on the experience and integrate the insights you gained. Here are some suggestions:

Use a tarot journal to record your findings

Jotting down your thoughts in a tarot journal after reading can be helpful in a few ways. First, it can help you remember the details of your reading later on, such as how you felt at the moment and perhaps your first impressions of what a card meant. Second, it can provide a space for you to process the information you’ve received and explore what it means for you. Third, it can be a way to keep track of your progress over time as you revisit your journal entries and reflect on your journey.

Take a picture of the cards

If you want to remember the position of the cards and what they meant in relation to your questions, take a picture of the spread. This will help you look back on the reading later and review the insights you received. Sometimes, clarity is better acquired after you’ve stepped back from the situation for a little while and had some time to process it.

Some people create Instagram accounts or Pinterest accounts specifically for this, and if you use any of our spreads please tag us @backyardbanshee if you feel comfortable!

Take some time to meditate and reflect

Immediately after a tarot reading, it’s important to take some time to sit with the insights you’ve received. This can be done through proper meditation, visualisation, or simply taking some time to reflect on the reading. It can be helpful to think about what the messages from the cards mean for your life and how you can apply the advice that was given to you. That time can also be used to replenish your energy level and cleanse your tarot deck.

Get a second opinion from a close friend

If you have close friends who also happen to be tarot practitioners, it can be helpful to get their take on your reading. They may be able to offer additional insights or perspectives that you hadn’t considered before. This is also a good way to get feedback on your own interpretation of the cards.

Ensure to ask permission before just blindly sending your cards across in a message and saying “what does this mean to you?” as your friends may not have the energy or have a boundary with this sort of thing – manners cost nothing, and this is especially to note if they are a professional tarot reader who normally gets paid to interpret readings.

Layer your reading with more divination

Why not try adding astrology dice or a pendulum reading to your tarot session? Your intuition will guide you on how to best use these tools, but they can be helpful in providing more clarity around the messages from your tarot reading. We have lots of methods for you to utilise here on the website.

Do the same reading a month later

This is a great way to check in on your progress and see how far you’ve come. It can also be helpful in understanding the cyclical nature of our lives and how our current situation is likely to change over time. This can be especially useful if you’re struggling with a decision or trying to figure out which path to take as to offer suggestions, provide perspective and encourage your confidence to move forward.

At the end of the day, tarot readings are meant to be a helpful tool, not a replacement for your own intuition. The best way to use tarot is to combine the insights you receive with your own understanding of the situation. Trust your gut and follow your heart—the answers you’re looking for will come.
