The Relationship Spread (7 Card) – Tarot Card Spreads

tarot card spreads

This is one of the tarot card spreads that is very informative on a wide range of relationship types, not just romantic. We are looking at different aspects of you as individuals and together. We are opening a deeper understanding of energies that express the quality and depth of your relationship.

We first take a look at THEIR UNIQUE QUALITIES (Position 1) or main elemental energy. It is the type of person they are as an individual. It is the unique energy in which they currently operate in the outer world.

Next we examine YOUR UNIQUE QUALITIES (Position 2) or how you express yourself to the outer world. It is how the other person see you. It is the who, what, where, why and how of you at your very core being, right now, at this moment.

Now we look at the CONNECTION (Position 3) that brings you together (or sets you apart). This card is the key to the structure of the spread. It is the center point on which the rest of the spread is built. In this card, we see interaction between qualities of each individual but also how it relates to commonality and mutual aspiration.

The COMMON BASE (Position 4) or shared commonalities between you is our next step. Simply put, it is what you have in common or the building blocks of the relationship. It is the things we share like activities, hobbies, career, music, or even philosophical views. When we can see what we have in common, we have something in which we can build.

Then we must delve into THEIR BACKGROUND (Position 5). What is their history? What influences their energy in the relationship? Does it move the relationship forward or backward? Are they carrying any kind of past baggage into the relationship? This card may represent an aspect they choose not to show to the world or may not even be aware of.

Having looked at the other person, now we must examine YOUR BACKGROUND (Position 6). What are you doing to develop or disolve the relationship? What past events or personalities influence your energy in the relationship? Do you have unresolved baggage that you are dragging into this relationship? This is an aspect of you that you may not be aware of or keep to yourself.

Finally, we look at your MUTUAL GOALS (Position 7). This is what you aspire to be, together, that you could not be alone. How does this energy influence to the connection between you? How does this relate to the qualities of each individual? This card is the highest aspect that you can achieve together.

Gaining vital knowledge and a new perspective about a relationship in such an indepth manner like this spread, allows you to operate more freely within the boundaries of that relationship due to your greater understanding. It is important not only to look into their past but to examine your own history and style in order to gain this understanding. We can see ourselves as individuals and as a community.

The Choices Spread (7 Card) – Tarot Card Spreads

tarot card spreads

One of the most useful tarot card spreads for me is the Choices Spread. We are looking for an answer on which direction would be best to take. This spread is designed to give you potential outcomes in a chronological sequence or timely order.

The cards should be dealt in the order of the positions (pictured above). The shape should resemble a “<”.

Position 7  “The Matter at Hand”

Position 7 is actually the theme of our reading. It reveals the matter at hand, the real driving force or undercurrent of the question. What is the real motives of the questioner or Querent? What is the question based on? What elemental energy evokes the question?

Position 3 – 1 – 5  “The Yes Choice”

Positions 3, 1 and 5 suggest what may take place if we decide to take action. I call this my “yes” direction. If we take this choice, each card is likely to happen in that order. Position 3 is the near future and position 5 is the possible long term outcome, while position 1 will occur sometime in between.

Position 4 – 2 – 6  “The No Choice”

Positions 4, 2 and 6 suggest what may take place if we decide not to take action. I call this my “no” direction”. If we make this choice, each card is likely to happen in that order. Position 4 is the near future and position 6 is the possible long term outcome, while position 2 will occur sometime in between.

So the results are simple, which way we choose, depends on the desired outcome. There are times when there is conflict in the relationships between the cards (permutations) and neither outcome is desirable. Then we know that this is not the proper question we should be asking or that we really don’t have much choice in the matter.

I really like this spread and have used it often in order to answer those “should I or shouldn’t I” questions. Looking at the potential end result helps the decision making process go much easier.

There are times when the answer can show the Querent just how large a scale the question really is by what cards present themselves. For example, if there are a number of major Arcana cards, then perhaps the results of the question are lifelong. Or if there are a lots of court cards then maybe there are others who are involved in this decision or could be.

A relatively easy spread to follow, I highly recommend this spread to anyone, especially those who are new to the practice of tarot card reading.

Elemental Daily Spread (4 Card) – Tarot Card Spreads

 tarot card spreads

Of all the tarot card spreads, this one, that I built myself, is fairly easy to follow. It works based on the relationship or permutations of the elements. It’s a snap shot of the energy that surrounds and influences our world. It is read from right (east) to the left (west) following the path of the sun from sunrise to sunset.

The first position is fire. It is our beginning or theme to our tarot card spread. The element of fire is all about our actions. It is what determines our desire and where we place our energy force. It is about our intent. All the actions in the fire position are in the past. It is how we are motivated or inspired to move forward.

The second position is air. Air is our mental area. What do we think about our situation? It is our current conscious state where we consider options and communicate with the outside world based on what we know. Air is our decision-making process. It fits neutrally between fire and water without conflict.

The third position is water. Water is where our feelings reside. It is our reactive unconscious state where our response is relative to our understanding. How do we relate to the outside world? How does the inside world reflect the outside world? Water is our psychic state. It is how we reach into the unknown. It is neutral with air and earth.

The fourth position is earth. Earth is our potential future. It is what we manifest into reality. It is our results or potential results. It is the material world. It is health and wealth.

Positions one & two are active, while positions three & four are passive. One & two give while three & four receive.

If all four elements are present in their appropriate positions then the situation is neutral. It is usually the case that there are elements missing or in a different order providing the reader with a wealth of information. Rows can be added above and/or below the original line to give the reader a more detailed view. Many times I add a row below to indicate the underlying energy and a row (or two) above to represent plans, aspirations or outside influences. The most positions I have placed is 4 across by 4 down. My first row being third row down. The top right would be fire of fire and the bottom left would be earth of earth.

I have found this spread to be one of my favorite tarot card spreads and a great daily read.
