How To Perform a Dream Tarot Spread

Dream Tarot Spread Layout

It is beneficial to keep a dream journal to enhance your connection to your subconsciousness. Have your journal by your bed and jot down your dream as soon as you wake up.

Before performing this dream Tarot spread, turn to your dream journal and recall the dream you had. Go through the different emotions that came up during your dream and pay attention to any objects, people, or themes that cropped up. When you are ready, shuffle the deck and pull six cards.

Card One: World Trigger

Our dreams are usually triggered by something in the real world. It may be a relationship, a goal, or an event. The first card in this dream Tarot spread represents the trigger that caused your dream.

This card may not be too obvious, so take your time exploring the meaning of the card. Do you see anything about you or your life represented in this card?

Card Two: Subconsciousness

The second card pulled in this dream Tarot spread represents your subconsciousness. It is usually connected to the first card, showing how your subconsciousness has reacted to the real-world trigger.

This card may show you worries, concerns, or hidden emotions that you are suppressing.

Card Three: Connection

This is a really important card as, by understanding how the internal and external are connected, you can deepen your understanding of your subconsciousness and discover hidden emotions that affect you.

Card Four: Spiritual Messages

When we are asleep and dreaming, the inhibitions of the waking world are left behind, and our minds are open to higher powers. Because of this, we may receive spiritual messages through our dreams.

This card will reveal any spiritual messages that your dream contains. It may provide you with advice regarding your spiritual journey or show you messages from your spirit guides.

Card Five: Hidden Messages

The fifth card represents any hidden messages of your dream. Dreams usually contain messages about a range of issues, and this will show you a different way of understanding your dream.

Card Six: Action

The last card in this dream Tarot spread shows how you can apply what you learned from your dream in the waking world. If this spread has revealed hidden worries and emotions deep within your subconsciousness, this card shows you how to combat these issues and learn from your dream.

Asking the Tarot: What Does This Dream Symbol Represent?

Our subconsciousness uses symbols in our dreams to represent emotions and worries. So, if we dream about a cat or a wedding, the dream isn’t actually about a cat or a wedding. Instead, these are symbols that represent something within us.

It can be difficult to understand the symbols within our dreams. However, turning to the Tarot can help you. If you want to work out how you can understand the symbolism in your dream, shuffle the deck while asking, ‘what does this dream symbol represent’. Remember to picture the symbol as you are shuffling the deck.

Pull a card and reflect on its meaning. The card will show you the emotions or fears that the dream symbol represents.

Three-Card Dream Tarot Reading

The three-card reading is also an option for a quick and simple spread. This gives an accurate answer, but I’ll leave it to you to decide which you need.

You can extend this reading to four cards with an additional qualifying card, but if it isn’t painting a clear path for you, I’d suggest taking the time with the complete spread.
