Reading the tarot doesn’t have to be a complicated affair - and oftentimes the best way to get acquainted with how to use it is through working with the cards every day. Having a regular schedule not only helps you create consistency in your learning habits, but can also help you create a more cohesive narrative of your experiences. Having a daily tarot practice gives each day a meaning - a lesson, a theme - something that adds up to more than hours in a day.
While usually that can be a simple single card tarot spread, sometimes you might have the desire to switch it up a bit. Whether you’re getting ready for a special event that you’d like additional guidance on, or you’re winding down from an especially complicated morning and you’d like some more help unpacking your insights, or even if you’re just looking for a simple change in routine, these daily tarot spreads were designed to help you do just that.

The following spreads will be simple enough that the layout won’t be so important.

We’re going to design the layout of these spreads following the same principles as a few of our older tarot spreads, which you can find here.
