How to Read Tarot Cards

Love is something we all want and look for, so it’s only natural that this is the area of life that we feel we need the most help with. A Tarot reading is the perfect way to gain some insight into your love life.

The Best Tarot Spreads for Love Readings

While most Tarot spreads can be modified to suit your needs, some are better suited for love readings than others. Here are some of the best Tarot spreads to use when conducting a love reading.

Three Card Love Spread

This spread is a variation on the basic three-card Past/Present/Future spread. It’s a straightforward and easy spread to use and is great for beginners.

Like any three-card spread, you’re going to draw three cards one at a time and place them in order from left to right.

  • Card 1: The first card relates to the querent and their energy. This card reveals what the querent wants out of the relationship and their true feelings.
  • Card 2: The second card relates to the other person and their energy. This card reveals what they are feeling and what they desire in the relationship.
  • Card 3: The third card relates to the energy of the relationship itself. This card can reveal where the relationship is headed. It might also shed light on the areas of the relationship that could use some improvement.

Five Card Relationship Spread

This spread is great for shedding some insight into a current relationship, especially if it’s a newer one. Since it is a five-card spread, it will delve a little deeper into your relationship than a three-card spread would.

This spread has no particular layout, you can create one if you like but laying them out in a straight line is fine.

  • Card 1: This card relates to you and your energy. This card reveals what you bring to the relationship. It may also provide insight into how your partner sees you and what you have to offer them.
  • Card 2: This card relates to your partner and their energy. This card reveals what they are bringing to the relationship. It will shed some light on what they have to offer to you.
  • Card 3: This card reveals your emotional future with your partner. This will let you know if you’ll be happy in this relationship. It may also reveal any challenges you may face.
  • Card 4: This card reveals your partner’s emotional future with you. This shows whether or not you can make your partner happy. This card may reveal any baggage or exes your partner is still holding on to.
  • Card 5: This card relates to the overall potential of the relationship. This is the card that will provide guidance for your relationship. It may shed some insight into what the two of you need to do to make the relationship work.

Love Spread for Singles

Many single people want to know if they’re going to meet someone new. This spread is perfect for revealing some information about a coming love interest.


  • Card 1: This card will represent your new love interest.

Cards 10 and 11 should also be read together.
