One Card Tarot Spreads

Guest Author - Christin Sander

Sometimes less is more when it comes to Tarot. Perhaps you want some quick inspiration for your day, or you only need very quick insight into a situation. Maybe you are feeling a bit lost and need a message or guidance to help you get back on the path. There are a variety of reasons for using a simple, single card Tarot spread.

Daily Wisdom:

A daily Tarot card is a great way to focus on larger life lessons in daily, "bite sized" chunks. A daily card can give a focus to your day, help you incorporate spiritual wisdom into your daily routine, and inspire you to grow and stretch each day. It can be used to lend insight into the energies surrounding you for the day ahead, so that you can be prepared and make the most of the circumstances that surround you.

In the morning sit quietly and focus your mind on "What wisdom do I most require for the day ahead and what should I focus on?" As you do this shuffle and draw a card and then take a few moments to reflect on the deeper meanings and symbolism of your chosen card.

What Surrounds Me?

Feeling a bit uncertain about the day ahead or just wondering what surrounds you today in general? Draw a card of the day while focusing on the question "What surrounds me today that I need to be aware of?" Then allow the wisdom of the card you choose to guide you gently to your answer.

Spiritual Guidance / Inspiration
Tarot can be a great source for meditation and reflection. Ask that the cards reveal to you a special spiritual lesson for the day or help to inspire you to feel more connected to your source and higher self throughout the day. Allow whatever card you pull to inspire you by focusing on the spiritual lessons at play in the card.

A good variation of this can be to use only the Major Arcana cards as those are the ones that represent the spiritual and evolutionary path of the Fool through all the various stages of growth and learning. Use a Major Arcana card to focus on your own journey.

Specific Area Focus
If you have a particular area of concern that you are struggling with a bit, a one card spread can give greater insight sometimes than a full spread. With a full spread, there is more imagery to possibly become confused by. A simple card, focused on one issue, provides opportunity for reflection and deeper thought.

Focus your intention and ask "Please show me what is true about __________". Shuffle thoroughly while focusing on this and then allow your single card to be the only one you draw. If it doesn't make sense to you immediately, that's ok. Allow the symbolism to sink in and inspire you to dig deep for your answers.
