30 Day Tarot Challenge – Day 06

Are tarot spreads really that important to learn from? I remember when I thought there were finite layouts and card combinations. My young tarot reading mind couldn’t fathom why you’d need more than three possibilities. Since then, things have really changed in the tarot spread department. There is an infinite supply of card layouts to choose from, all of which seem to offer something new to discover about the tarot. But, I can’t help but remember the days when it wasn’t about the layout. I learned tarot using one layout for the longest time, and it never failed to enhance my tarot reading in general.

It’s no surprise then that they are an important beginning step for any card reader. But what if you’ve already done tons of three card spreads? Well, all I can say is try another. There’s always something to learn in any tarot spread you do. I know for me, much of my progress has been showcased by reading three card draws. In any case, I was eager to see what Benebell Wen had to say about them in her book, Holistic Tarot. Do I even need to articulate how I wasn’t disappointed? Holistic Tarot is a book that just continues to give. Continue reading
