What does spread mean in tarot cards?
“A tarot spread is an intentional layout of the cards where each placement represents an answer to a question,” says Anastascio. “We can use spreads if we are trying to get insight into a situation, or are making a decision and feel overwhelmed.”
What is the most basic tarot spread?
Classic three-card tarot spreads are the most common foundations for beginners. Once you experiment with these, try a five-card tarot spread to add more detail to your readings.
How many tarot cards are in a spread?
Though design varies greatly, all tarot decks are uniform in a couple of ways. Each includes 78 cards divided into two groups: the major and minor arcana. The major arcana are the deck’s 22 trump cards and, when pulled during a reading, typically refer to more major influences and revelations.
