Tarot spreads and how to read them

There are certain tarot spreads that can be done with your partner whether it is a friend, business partner or love interest. This entry was posted on Sunday, March 21st, 2010 at 11:01 am and is filed under Tarot Spreads. Readings may be general, you may ask a specific question, or you may ask about a or about a specific situation. Card #1 will give you clues as to what you need to change in your current life in order to align more closely with your life purpose. I’s a little confused by the Hanged man and the reversed cards and was hoping you could clarify for me thanks kindly.
Glad you enjoyed doing this Tarot spread, Emma Thank you so much for sharing your results! I have a pretty solid idea of what the cards are telling me, but am interested in you opinion if that’s ok?
1) 2 of Pentacles: Currently balancing family, work and trying to fit time in for new spiritual endeavors.
2) 7 of Wands: This speaks to me about standing up for what I have worked for, what I believe in.
4) 8 of Wands: I’m not 100% on this, but I believe it may be pointing to my passions take me to new places, spreading gifts and teaching others? I feel a vibe from this reading, however it would be nice to have someone help me interpret this combination.
I understand most of them except for the moon card (the last card, global life purpose) can you help? Hello, I did the Life Purpose Tarot spread, it came out good, but I didn’t really understand it. I done a life purpose spread and I would like to invite anyone who wants to interpret as they see it. Firstly I would like to thank you Kate for such a great spread and being such a great help and influence on my journey with the tarot.
For the first card I got the 5 of pentacles, the second the 5 of swords, 3rd the fool and lastly the 6 of wands. You could see the 5 of Swords as indicating conflict – thus your purpose might have to do with healing conflict and helping others heal conflict and resentment (for example, as a counsellor or mediator).
1–you are in a spot where you seek solitude in order to regroup from the stresses of your past. 2-you are actually battling your desires (this can also be seen as a lawsuit against your current of just-previous employer before moving toward your ultimate life purpose). If you are uncertain which is the most appropriate for you, I will be happy to speak with you to help you decide which is the best option for your specific needs. We all wonder from time to time why we are here, what we are supposed to be doing and if we are in the right job, city or relationship.
Through analysis I feel the cards embody aspects of my personality perfectly though I think the overall message is that it is safe for me to express who I truly am, that I should leave that which no longer serves me in the past and stops me from living fully in this moment. I’ve gotten the tower reversed a couple times now recently in my readings and I feel as though the tarot is trying to tell me something but I still dont intuitively know what it is.
I think the 3rd card is being supported by loved ones, receiving regeneration rather than giving it.

I find that I understand the cards just a little more day using your tips and comments to do the reading.
This is so wonderful to hear Thank you for letting me know, as this is the whole reason I created my website and its good to know its working! And I am curious to hear on anyone’s opinion of these cards as the 5 of swords seems to be a very negative card in regards to life purpose?
I won’t go into detail here, but in a nutshell, card #1 shows that you may feel torn between two major things when it comes to your life purpose.
While concentrating on the suggested questions I that have listed below, each partner will take a turn, pulling one card for each question.
We all come to Earth with a mission, but forget what that mission is once we incarnate into a physical body. Card #2 shows that an area of personal growth that you are working on is Patience – allowing things to happen in their own time. I have found that when this is utilized on a regular basis, a couple can re-discover their relationship in an entirely new way.
This spread is designed to help you remember what that mission is by giving you a snapshot of your life purpose as it relates to spiritual growth, relationships, career and creativity. I am spiritually strong in the sense of I can endure a lot of heartbreak and emotional suffering, but I’m weak in the sense of physical and pain endurance. Card #3 indicates that you have a harmonizing, calming presence in your community and family, and card #4 suggests that your global mission involves listening to your intuition and perhaps even teaching and inspiring others to do so.
Here’s some questions to ponder: what is your relationship to strength in your day to day life?
As for helping those that need it well the whole of humanity needs help and so does the natural world.
Jeanne leverages her 20 years of experience as a Tarot reader and teacher to make the material in the book an entertaining and memorable read. The depth and scope of the techniques she shares come from her formal training in meditation and counseling experience. The book follows a very logical progression, starting with the a section on "Ground Rules" which includes discussions on intention, focus, when to use Tarot and, maybe more importantly, when not to.
Maybe it indicates working with people who lack confidence and strength (like a social worker or advocate of some kind)?
She also discusses using intuition, what reversals and significators are, expanding readings, and relying on yourself to do the reading.
The majority of the book is devoted to the next section which provides expandable templates and demonstrates their use. I discovered when I started doing in-person readings for others, my large collection was not practical.
So many times, books on spreads can become "collections." You are given different, specific spreads for different specific situations (not that there is anything wrong with that). This book provides the reader with a toolkit that he or she can tweak and build upon for a lifetime. As a paperback and at a mere 128 pages, its slim design and moderate size makes it easy to carry around. With not a lot of contrast, some of the text even got a little lost to me.The text on the inside, however, is a far different story.

I do have to admit that I have a slight bias towards the author only because in reading her book, it seems as though she and I have very similar reading styles and values, but that aside, what impresses me most about "Tarot: Spreads and Layouts" is the fact that the content is not the common information you find in most books on the topic.
Since the book is essentially broken into two sections: the informational section and the spread section, let's start with the informational section, which packs a punch in it's short, first 33 pages of the book.
It's the type of information and insight that you usually get in a class rather than a book.
Fiorini clearly has taught a few classes in her time and has cleanly and clearly translated that into the content of this work in a way that is easy to read and easy to understand.
Most importantly, it is the type of information that we all should have learned when we were beginners, but most of us have only learned through practicing the craft for decades. This is not a beginning book that starts with the bare bones of deck structure and suits, but it is one in which beginners will learn the right way to read, from the ground up. And even though the sub-title indicates otherwise, I believe advanced practitioners can find useful information that they, themselves, can apply not only in their readings but in classes that they may teach, as well.The spreads section is also unique. It doesn't just give a list of the same spreads you see in every tarot book, it gives a multitude of questions, insights and options about simple spreads that even long time readers may not have thought about.In a day and age when there are a million and one books on tarot out there, one has to find a new angle for a book on the topic to be worthwhile.
This little book is so jammed full of information, tips, spreads and insights that it actually took me a long time to get through it. It’s obvious that the author put her heart and soul (and years of teaching experience) into this.
I was pleasantly surprised by all that this book offered.Fiorini starts the book out with a chapter called “The Art of The Question” where she gives advice on what formulates a good question. She is quick to point out that “tarot is not about wish-fulfillment but the pursuit of information, knowledge, and awareness”. This statement helped me to understand that the spreads I would be working with were more about self development and not predictive in nature.
Being as I am a straightforward person, I appreciated having this spelled out right from the get go. The author continues on with examples of well worded questions and how they may help the querent get a better, more accurate reading.
She then moves forward to a chapter on “Reading Skills and Practical Matters” – this chapter is worth the price of the book alone. All tarot readers, no matter what skill level, will find the author’s thoughts on tarot reading to be essential information. I really liked this chapter and found myself gleaning a few insights that I hadn’t considered. This was very appealing to me as it gave me plenty to work with but didn’t overwhelm or bore. And here’s the interesting part – while 17 spreads may not sound like a lot, Fiorini provides suggestions for expanding the reading should you decide that you need to. This makes the spreads versatile and gives the reader an opportunity to choose how deep they want to go.  Additionally, she gives questions to ponder for each spread that provokes critical thinking. Although I found Fiorini to be a very detailed writer and a bit dry but she makes up for that by providing good, solid, useable information.
