One of the main reasons we may consult the Tarot is often due to relationship questions. Tarot hands us the ability to look beyond the situation from our perspective and to see it from the other person’s point of view. The fact is, we can consult the Tarot for guidance at any stage – from looking for that special someone and asking about how and when we will connect and what kind of person they will be, to helping us should we hit a ‘speed bump’ in the relationship.
So, if you are starting out on your soulmate search, or are already on the path, here is a simple three card technique that will help you in any situation. As always, have your Tarot journal ready to write down the cards you draw and your interpretation of them so you can refer back to them. Shuffle your cards, cut the pack into three, put the cards back into one pile and then lay out the first three cards.
Looking for a partner:
Card 1: The type of person you are going to attract
Card 2: Information on where and how you may meet
Card 3: Information on timing
Relationship potential when you have just met:
Card 1: Your first impression of them
Card 2: Their first impression of you
Card 3: Your relationship potential
Relationship problems spread – What You Need to Know
Card 1: What you need to know about the problem from your perspective
Card 2: What you need to know about your partner’s perspective
Card 3: Outside influences that you need to be aware of
Relationship problems spread – What You Need to Do
Card 1: What you can do to improve your situation
Card 2: What they can do to improve the situation
Card 3: What other people/resources you may have available to help you
Card 1: What has happened from your point of view
Card 2: What has happened from their point of view
Card 3: Your chances for a reconciliation or what needs to happen for one to take place
These spreads allow you to see the other person’s point of view especially when it comes to first impressions of you and also if you do encounter problems, it can help you understand where they are coming from. Relationships are never one-sided affairs as there are always two people involved. When we open up to the other person’s feelings and thoughts, we open up a new dimension of relating and Tarot allows us to explore this. As always, if you are concerned that you may be interpreting the cards subjectively rather than objectively and projecting a desired outcome onto them, you can always consult one of our fabulous readers who will be happy to guide you towards their true meaning for you.

I’ve been creating my Knight-Waite tarot deck for three years.
It has been such a labour of love, I can’t wait to unleash it!
It will launch in 2023, but why not take a little sneak peek at the cards below?
