Found yourself in a tricky situation? A love triangle Tarot can shine some light on the situation and help you decide on the best choice for the long run. It can help you get what you want, without anyone being hurt along the way.
I don’t like readings where you click a few buttons and have to piece it together from the general meaning of the cards. If you’d like, I can do an actual Tarot reading for you (within the hour) and we can focus on your love triangle or, if you prefer, I can show you how to do it yourself.

Our love lives can be high-energy and turbulent enough even before we bring a love triangle into the equation. If you take a few minutes to answer a few questions, I can do a reading for you.
How to Do a Love Triangle Tarot Spread
If you’d rather do the reading yourself then this is the spread I would use. There are a lot of different combinations you could use further down the line to get a more detailed insight but a simple triangle of cards can give you some quick answers.
Card 1 should be at the top to represent yourself while cards 2 and 3 should form a triangle below.
Card 1: You
The first card is, perhaps, the most important. It is representative of you, at this particular time. What is happening in your life that has drawn the three of you together?
Everything happens for a reason and there might be a deeper meaning to the events that have led to the development of this love triangle.
A little later on this page, I’m going to cover the important cards to watch for in a love triangle Tarot spread and these can be especially important in this first position. It might be that this card already helps you see into the situation but you should continue with the other two.
Card 2: The Other Two People
The second card gives you insight into the other two people in the love triangle. What they truly want, how they feel and can give an insight into the dynamic between all three of you.
The position of this card can give you a good indication of the type of love triangle you are dealing with. This card doesn’t speak to the future or give advice, it simply helps you understand where the three of you are currently at.
Again, some very important cards to watch for will be covered in a little more detail further down this page.
Card 3: The Outcome (or Advice)
The outcome is represented by the third and final card in the triangle. This is what you can expect if things continue as they are and it can also offer advice on how you should proceed.
This card is important as it can help you make the best decision for yourself and avoid any heartache down the line. This card is very situational and you should take your time with it. Look at it within the context of the first two cards.
It might be that your intuition already tells you what to do or the advice in this card contradicts what you feel in your heart. If that’s the case, go with your intuition. Look at the cards under that context.
Cards to Watch Out For
Every card carries an important message in the Tarot (don’t just look for the major arcana). Every card also draws its deepest and truest meaning from the other cards and the combinations they create.
However, there are a few cards I’d watch out for in a love triangle Tarot reading. I can’t possibly cover every single card here (let me do a reading for you if you want the complete combination broken down) but these are the main ones.
The Strength major arcana is important in any position. It speaks to the overcoming of obstacles, inner strength and fortitude. for a love triangle reading, it’s a sign that things will turn out for the better as long as you’re able to listen to the advice of the cards.
Short term there might still be some discomfort but it won’t be too bad and, in the long term, everyone will be happier for it.
The Devil card often shows up when someone is feeling trapped or like they’re not in control of the situation. For a lovers triangle, it can represent someone who is feeling coerced or forced into the situation.
This card can also show up when someone is feeling jealous or left out. If you see The Devil in your reading, be careful not to make any rash decisions and try to get all sides of the story before you do anything.
The Death card is a symbol of change. For a lovers triangle (depending on the position) it might mean that things are going to play their course by themselves and you won’t need to do anything.
It suggests one relationship ending and a change in the dynamic of the triangle itself.
Three of Pentacles
The Three of Pentacles is often a welcome sign in a relationship spread as a card of love and acceptance. For a lovers triangle, it’s a sign that nobody is going to get hurt.
There is a sense of cooperation and mutual understanding between all parties. This could be the start of something beautiful.
The Lovers major arcana is all about love and choice. In a love triangle spread, it might show up as a sign that one person is feeling torn between the two people they love.
This card could also indicate that the querent is in the process of making a decision about who they want to be with. It’s an important card and pay careful attention to the position.
Three of Swords
The Three of Swords is a card of heartache and pain. In a love triangle, it’s a sign that someone is going to be hurt in the short term but it’s going to need to happen for the long term. Be prepared for some emotional turbulence.
The Tower is a card of chaos and upheaval. In a love triangle reading, it might show up as a sign that someone is going to be caught in the crossfire. It could also represent a time of dramatic change in the relationship itself. If you see The Tower in your reading, be prepared for things to change quickly.
Three of Wands
The Three of Wands is a symbol of progress and opportunity. For a lovers triangle, it might show up as a sign that the querent is going to find themselves in a better position after the situation has resolved itself.
It could also be a sign that someone is about to make a move and things are going to progress quickly. Keep an eye out for this card.
The cards that I’ve mentioned so far are just a few of the most important in a love triangle Tarot spread. The position and combinations will help you unlock the full meaning and, if you’re still stuck, let me do a full spread for you.
