Examining Relationships with Tarot - 3 Love Tarot Spreads to Understand You & Your Partner

By Tina Gong


Love is one of the greatest, perhaps even the greatest, of human mysteries that we desire to experience. And naturally, because of it's elusive and coveted nature, it also happens to be one of the most common topics readers are asked to answer. Whether it is for you yourself, or for another - there are so many situations that we search for answers about. 

How to Use these Love Tarot Spreads

The spreads we're focusing on here today are meant to be used to get a different perspective on the loves and the relationships in your lives. For the most part, we're focusing on romantic relationships, but some of these can also be used for relationships in general, or adapted to be used that way. We're going to be listing these in the order from the simplest to the most complex.

Without further ado, we hope these spreads will be used to help you along your journey!

3-Card Love / Relationship Tarot Spread

3 Card Tarot Spread for Love / Relationships - List of Love Tarot Spreads

The simplest of these tarot spreads, we recommend this for a quick diagnosis of the relationship dynamics amongst two people. After shuffling your cards and focusing on your questions, lay first the left most card, then the right most, making room for a third card in the middle between them.

  1. You - What is your role in this relationship? How do you perceive yourself, and how does that affect your partnership?
  2. Lover / Partner - What is their role in the relationship? How do you perceive your partner? And how does that affect the partnership?
  3. Dynamics - How would you describe this relationship? What are the characteristics of it?

5-Card Cross Love Tarot Spread

This is similar to the 3-card love tarot spread, but aims to give more detail on how the relationship has developed over time, and what the direction of your relationship is if it follows its current trajectory. Instead of having a single card in the middle, draw 3 cards from top to bottom in the middle.

  1. Your role - What is your role in your partnership?  
  2. Partner's role - What is your partner's role?
  3. Past foundation - What was the foundation of your relationship? How did you two come together? What initially united you?
  4. Present status - What is the current state of your relationship? What dynamics are currently in place?
  5. Looming future - Where is this relationship going? What kind of feelings / partnership can you expect to develop together? 

Compatibility Love Tarot Spread
