What's your favorite spread?


I'm writing down some spreads but my list is lamentably short.

My Favorite Spread


Short, but sweet... {I am not sure where I got it either}.

1}. What I know?
2}. What I don't know?
3}. What I need to know?

Then sometimes I add:

4}. Advice/Guidance
5}. What exactly am I supposed to understand about this reading? OR Clarifier.



Hope that helps!

I also like this for dreams.

Simple Dream Spread By: anonymous_artist

1}. The Dream {Summary of what you understand of the dream}.
2}. Hidden & Deep Meaning
3}. Hidden & Deep Meaning
4}. Truth about the dream
5}. Why you had the dream?




I also like this for figuring out a person's motives

Stregaverde's Pesky Problem Person Spread

1}What motivates this person?
2}. What lies beneath those motivations? What is hidden or subconscious?
3}. What is the current situation with this person?
4}. What can I do about this situation?
5}. What do I need to be aware of?
6}. What other influences can/do affect this situation?
7}. Advice
8}. Outcome



This for healing...

Healing Your Heart Spread by: Kimmy-bear

1}. What you need to heal in our heart?
2}. What lead to the hurt in your heart?
3}. What will help heal your heart?
4}. What you need to heal in your mind?
5}. What lead to the hurt in your mind?
6}. What will help heal the hurt in your mind?
7}. What you need to heal subconsciously mind?
8}. What led to the hurt in your subconscious mind?
9}. What will help heal your subconscious mind?



I REALLY like this spread also-

"Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can't Change" Spread By: Embla

1}. Serenity- How do I find serenity in this situation?
2}. Acceptance- How do I find acceptance of the things I can't change?
3}. Courage- How do I find the courage to change the things that I can?
4}. Wisdom- How do I find the wisdom to know the difference between 2 & 3?




Of course, there are a TON of specific Tarot Spreads in the Tarot Spread Index located here:

Enjoy!

I love it!
My favorite spreads are simple ones, because, like many of us here, I believe that too many cards can confuse the reader or dilute the message.
Definitely going into my book! Thanks!

I have a 4 card dream interpretation spread in my book already, but this spread seems short, simple, and sweet as well! Going into my book.

I have actually used this spread already and loved it, so it's already in my book.

Wow, I really like this spread too. It has more cards than I would normally want to use, but could be useful. I'll write this one down too!

Another short and sweet one. There is a pesky problem I am having right now and I believe I can use this to better understand it. Another home run!

I do know of this list, but sometimes it's exhausting to comb through it to find awesome spreads. That's why I figured I'd start this thread and see what spreads people really love and use often. Thank you!

Yes, I liked the short, but to the point, spreads also. It was especially helpful when first learning. I still use this one the most because it can be used with so many different situations. I am glad that you liked it!

That index is HUGE! That is why I decided to go ahead and post my favorites. I think the old members forget how overwhelming it can be. Most members are just going to point you to the index, but maybe when they 'remember' they were new once also they will post some of their favorite spreads.
When you get comfortable with everything that really is a great place to look through. It is especially helpful if you know the type of spread you are looking for. It is fun to make up your own also. You will notice that sometimes the spreads don't always ask the questions that you would want to know. I find that the more specific the question the better chance of it being answered. That was hard for me at first. lol


Best of luck to you! I also have my 3 ring binder full of Tarot Spreads.

dynamic spread


This is my favourite spread for a general spread as it gives a lot of indepth information.

deal till you get the pip card
1. wands - motivations
2. swords - stresses and conflicts
3. cups- emotions
4. pentacles- material
5. major

You keep going if you get a court card... some can be pretty lengthy but it seems to be only when you need the extra detail... you can just read the last card and have a look at the rest after..

For love...

1. will i find true love?
2. will it be instant or slow burning
3. what will they be like ( i normally draw 2 cards)
4. what will delay me
5. what could prevent me
6. when how

@Espirito: I love the 3 card spreads the most. Thank you!

@Krystalkitty: Love both of these....the love one I think would work really well in readings for others, and the general reading seems pretty cool (though I usually dislike general spreads...I like this one).

@avalonian: Love this! Simple 3 card spread that could potentially give quite a bit of information...thanks!


Wow, everyone has been posting pretty informative/fun spreads. Still open to more!
