Marriage is an amazing part of life. You have found someone you want to be with forever and start to settle down together. However, it may all feel a bit overwhelming sometimes! You are beginning a new life with someone and want everything to run smoothly.
If you have just got married or are about to say your vows, a marriage Tarot spread can provide guidance for you and your spouse. By looking at the different aspects of your marriage and addressing any issues, you are able to begin your life together with understanding and support.
Free Marriage Tarot Spread
If you’d like help, I can do a free Tarot reading on your behalf within an hour. Not just a couple of cards and their meanings but an actual spread to give you insight into your path together.
How To Perform a Marriage Tarot Spread
You can either do this reading with your spouse or by yourself. If you choose to do it with your spouse, take turns picking cards and discussing them together before moving on to the next card. If you want to do this spread by yourself, having a photo of your spouse will help you really connect your relationship to the Tarot.
You may wish to appear to the element of water before doing this spread. The element of water governs emotions, communication, and romance and therefore will help you reflect on the cards. You can do this by meditating with a crystal associated with this element, such as Selenite or Fluorite.
Shuffle the deck and pull six cards, placing them face down in front of you.
Card One: The Foundations of Your Marriage
The first card pulled in this marriage Tarot spread reveals the foundations that connect you and your spouse. It will usually show shared goals and values that make you right for one another.
It may also reveal shared memories that bond you and your partner together. If you are performing this Marriage Tarot, spread with your spouse, take your time to talk about how you both relate to this card and what it means to you.
Card Two: Your Current Relationship
The second card pulled represents your current relationship. It will show you where you are right now in your marriage.
If you are about to get married, don’t worry too much if a more negative card appears in this position. Planning a marriage is an incredibly stressful time, and this may show up in this card.
Card Three: What Needs Nurturing
The third card in this Marriage Tarot spread reveals parts of your marriage that need a bit of attention! If there are any issues underlying your relationship with your spouse, they will appear here.
This card may simply shed light on something that you and your partner have been neglecting right now.
Card Four: Potential Issues
This card will show you any potential issues that may arise in your marriage. It might also show you how to overcome these problems.
If you are performing the marriage Tarot spread with your partner, be open and honest about how you interpret this card. Knowing potential issues can help you, and your partner avoid them!
Card Five: Near Future
The fifth card pulled in this spread represents the near future. It will show you the path you and your partner are on and what is in store in the near future!
This is usually a pretty exciting card, especially if you have just got married.
Card Six: Long-Term Potential
The final card in this marriage Tarot spread represents the long-term potential you and your partner have. It may reveal children, retirement, or adventures you will go on in your marriage.
If a negative card appears, reflect on what you can do in order to avoid what the card reveals. Remember, the Tarot doesn’t tell us the definite future, but what may occur if you carry on with the energy you have right now.
Three-Card Marriage Tarot
The three-card reading is also an option if you want 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.
Asking the Tarot: How Can I Make My Marriage Successful?
If you want more general advice from the Tarot, this question will shed light on your marriage and anything you need to do to make it as good as it can be.
Shuffle the deck while asking, ‘how can I make my marriage successful?’. Pick a card out of the deck and reflect on its meaning. If you need to, take one or two more cards to help you understand the guidance the Tarot is giving you.
Important Cards for the Marriage Tarot Spread
When performing a marriage Tarot spread, there are certain cards that have huge meanings. Let’s look at the important cards to look out for when doing this spread.
Ten of Cups
The Ten of Cups reflects harmony, long-term commitment, and stability. It represents a happy family full of abundance and love.
If the Ten of Cups appears in a marriage Tarot spread, it suggests that you and your spouse will have a long and fulfilling marriage. It is a great sign if you want children in your marriage, suggesting that all your wishes will come true.
The World is the final card of the major arcana and symbolizes fulfillment, success, and completion.
