How a 3 Card Love Tarot Spread Can Help You
Getting a three-card tarot spread can help you decipher what’s going on in your love life. Often, it’s difficult to see things in an impartial way. A tarot reading lays out all the important issues while giving you a deeper look at yourself and your relationship (or lack thereof).
Why only 3 Cards?
For such an important issue as love, it seems rather trite to only have three cards. But, keeping things simple for something that can be so complicated will offer easier understanding. Sure, you could do a Celtic Cross involving 10 cards, but doing a three-card tarot spread keeps it short and sweet.
How to Do a 3 Card Tarot Spread for Love in the Future
This reading is for those who just got out of a relationship, are serial monogamists or have been single for a long time. This three-card tarot spread will work whether you have a specific person in mind or not. Although brief, it can provide insight into things you may not be able to see about yourself.
Before you begin touching the tarot deck, ask a question about what you want to know in regards to your love life. The following are only suggestions; you can devise your own:
- Will I find love soon? (You could also try my when will I find love tarot spread).
- Does he think about me?
- Does (name of lover) love me?
- How come I always get involved in abusive relationships?
- Why can’t I find a compatible partner?
- Am I destined to be single forever?
Once you have your question solid in your mind, focus on it and don’t allow any other thoughts or feelings to enter. Then, shuffle the deck of cards. Do this as many times as you need to put your life energy and question into the deck.
When you feel it’s full, cut the deck three times and put them back into one pile. Spread out the entire deck before you, face down, and pick three cards you feel drawn to. Put them in a line from left to right.
Card 1: You
The leftmost position of this card indicates you in the reading. It can be a literal or symbolic interpretation of your heart, conscious mind, feelings and where you are at this point in time. It may also spell out your biggest lesson in love or larger themes you must overcome.
Positive indications will come from seeing cards like The Sun, The Empress, The Emperor, Temperance or The World. However, if The Devil or The Hierophant sit here, you are very much attached to materialistic pursuits that could indicate selfishness.
Card 2: Current Situation
This center card represents the current path in regards to your relationship status. It will detail the surrounding circumstances and the foundation for why you’re single. Also, it can indicate where there are blockages in relationships and the kinds of relationships you get into.
When something from the Minor Arcana sits here, like the Three of Swords or Six of Cups, you’re experiencing a major heartbreak. However, if Death appears, you are currently going through a breakup or there’s some other dire change occurring. But, your life is very happy and joyful if Temperance or The World emerge.
Card 3: Potential Outcome
This final card prediction discusses what may come soon in regards to your romantic life. It will also provide some actionable advice and the broader lessons you must learn.
If The Star, The Wheel of Fortune or a court card from any suit appears, you’re about to embark on a new relationship with a future partner. In the event The Hermit, The Hanged Man or The Fool takes up residence, you are going to remain single for a while.
3 Card Tarot Spread for Existing Relationships
This three-card spread is for those who are already in current relationships, regardless of the length of involvement or depth of commitment. But, you should be in a bona fide relationship for this to work. Follow the same instructions as above and ask a targeted question.
- Why did (name of partner) cheat on me?
- Is my husband/wife going to divorce me?
- Will my current partner marry me?
- Does my significant other still love me?
- How can I achieve a happier love life?
- Is he the one?
Card 1: You
As with most tarot card readings, this individual card will talk about you, your role in this existing relationship and how you feel about it in general.
When you see a positive card like The Star, The Empress, The High Priestess or The World, you have a pivotal role in your relationship. But, if The Moon, The Devil or The Tower appear, then you pose a negative influence.
Card 2: Your Partner
The position of this card describes your current partner and their role in the relationship. It will be a representation of this person and their feelings toward you.
If The Emperor, The Magician, The Wheel of Fortune or any King/Queen come into view, your partner/spouse is a good person who provides well. But, in the event you see the Three of Swords, Death or The Moon, this person is a heartbreaker who puts you through a lot of grief.
Card 3: Future
The card you see here will either give a concise answer to your question or explain what’s going to happen with your relationship very soon.
When the 10 of Cups, The Lovers, The Star or The World appear, your relationship is solid and will continue for a long time to come. In the case that The Tower, Death or Six of Wands appears, it means major change is coming to your relationship and a breakup may be on the horizon.
