Some psychics deal in drawing cards randomly and using them for their divination. Other psychics arrange cards in patterns known as spreads in order to read a fortune. A spread can indicate the type of question being asked and how accurate the reading will be based on the spread chosen.
Many tarot card newbies don’t know that they can request a specific spread be used during a session. Usually the psychic in charge of the session chooses which spread is used. Because you have two options, which should you pick? Choosing a spread on your own or letting a psychic do it for you?
Learning About Spreads
Before you decide on a spread, it’s absolutely important that you understand what certain spreads mean. For instance, if you want to know about general areas of your life, spreads that deal with specific instances or questions wouldn’t be good for the kind of reading you want. In the opposite scenario, asking a specific question when the spread is general doesn’t help you obtain the information that you want. Learn about which spreads are good for what things. Most spreads have a specific card placed in specific locations that can explain something based on where it is in the spread. This is crucial to finding the exact spread you need to get the most out of your psychic session.
Trusting Your Instinct
Sometimes when it’s right, it’s really right. You may not always be able to explain what it is about a certain psychic or spread, but your body and mind will let you know that they feel at peace with this option and guide you to choose it. Tarot card reading is very spiritual and deals with a lot of psychic energy. Let your own energy guide you to the spread that is calling you. This spread can be screaming at you that within it, you’ll truly find the answers to the questions your heart is asking.
Trusting the Psychic
In lieu of picking the spread out for yourself, trusting a psychic to pick the spread for you is another feasible option that’s worth considering. Unlike you, a psychic has a good deal of experience in tarot card reading. Often a psychic will ask what you’re looking for from the session before actually picking out a spread. See what spread they pick and listen to their description as they go through the cards. Is what they’re describing and how they’re describing it really answering the question you asked? Is this what you wanted from the session?
A Collaborative Effort
Sometimes, it’s not a matter of you picking a spread or the psychic picking the spread. Talk together and see what spread best suits what you’re wanting out of the reading. The way the tarot cards are set up directly impacts how the reading will go, so deciding on the right spread for you is definitely important. Use teamwork and communication to decide on a spread so you can have the most accurate reading possible.
