Shuffle the deck while asking, ‘how can I connect with the universe?’. Pull out a card and reflect on its meaning. It may hint towards a spirit guide to pray to or actions you can do to deepen your connection with the universe. If you need to, draw another card for more guidance.

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.
Important Cards for the Tree of Life Tarot Spread
When performing this Tree of Life Tarot spread, there are certain cards that hold specific meanings. Let’s look at them now.
The Magician is a deeply symbolic card that represents the potential we have that is always within reach. The Magician works with the elements of the universe to manifest and achieve his goals.
If the Magician appears in a Tree of Life Tarot spread, it suggests that you are connected with the different aspects of yourself and the world around you. You have a lot of personal power right now, and this is because of how you embrace these different parts of the Tree of Life.
The Devil is the fifteenth card of the major arcana and reflects bondage and constraint. It is linked to physical pleasure and desires, revealing the negative forces that are holding you back.
When appearing in a Tree of Life Tarot spread, the Devil shows that you are not truly embracing your connectedness to the universe. You are focusing too much on the here and now and need to pay attention to the roots and branches of your own Tree of Life. It is time to discover your past, future, subconsciousness, and spirituality through Tarot work.
The Tree of Life Tarot spread helps you understand the connections you have with the past, future, and wider universe.
