How to Perform a Morning Tarot Spread

Morning Tarot Spread Layout

The best time to perform this morning Tarot spread is before you have begun any tasks or work. If you like to start your day with a coffee or a cup of tea, sit with it and place the cards in front of you.

Ask the universe for guidance for the day ahead, and shuffle the deck. When you are ready, pull six cards.

Card One: Card of the Day

The first card of the day is your card of the day. This will reveal the main theme of your day and what you need to be aware of. It will usually reflect what kind of attitude you should have today and what the general vibe of the day ahead will bring.

This card may reveal any problems or issues that may arise. Don’t worry too much about receiving a more negative card in this position, as it has appeared to prepare you for the issues.

Card Two: Energy to Shake Off

Morning Tarot ReadingThe second card in the morning Tarot spread represents any energy or attitudes you need to shake off to truly prepare yourself for the day ahead. We will often hold onto energy from the previous day, and this can stop us from starting each day afresh.

When we let go of negative energy from the previous day, we can really embrace the opportunities that come our way.

Card Three: What to Embrace Today

The third card pulled represents the energy and opportunities to embrace today. Each new day brings us new experiences, and we must be ready to throw ourselves into anything that comes our way.

The meaning of this card may not be obvious to you right now, but that’s okay! Sometimes, the meaning of this card will be revealed to you over the course of the day.

Card Four: Goal of the Day

The fourth card pulled in this spread reveals a goal you can achieve today. It may be a small one, or it may be a goal that you have been working up to.

Take time to meditate with this card and really work out what your goal for today is.

Card Five: How to Achieve This Goal

The fifth card reveals what you need to know regarding your goal for the day. Linked to the previous card, this card is of action and guidance, showing you how you can work to achieve the goal.

Card Six: How Other People May Help Me Today

The final card in the morning Tarot spread reflects the relationships you have and how they will help you today. It reminds us to be grateful for those in our life who support us.

This card will usually reflect a person you know, but it can also represent a stranger who will influence your day.

Asking the Tarot: What Do I Need To Know Today?

Sometimes we simply do not have time every morning for a six-card Tarot spread! If you are in a rush and just need a small bit of Tarot guidance, you can ask the cards, ‘what do I need to know today?’.

Shuffle the deck while asking the question, then pick out a card. This will provide you with the right mindset for your day ahead.

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 how deep you want to go on your morning and the day before you.

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.
