The 3-Card Tarot draw is considered a very typical, but time-tested spread. Plus, it is also an excellent layout for novices to use for their practice, or when they start reading for themselves or others. In order to view the spread online more easily, don’t be hesitant to hit on the graphics for the larger view. In some web pages, we may be offered a practical assignment (a card spread for interpretation) at the end of each tutorial. Whether we practice on our own, or even take part in the Discussion forum devoted to this specific spread, it’s always a matter of personal choice!
What Does 3-Card Tarot Layout Reveal?
In fact, this is a highly simple but useful spread, which may involve a wide range of different meanings assigned to each of the 3 positions. To begin this layout, we’re required to carefully shuffle the cards, lay them out in a long line in front of us, and then permit Higher Self to draw these 3 cards from the deck. Without a doubt, each step should be thoroughly done with calm focus and quiet mind.
When it comes to decision-making or problem solving approach, this 3-card spread will aid us in learning to apply the Tarot to finding out how to approach a decision or problem. This is the easiest as long as we let our conscious mind and ego relax, and then allow Higher Self to speak to us through the cards we have just drawn. Here are their brief-but-thoughtful interpretations:
- The Left Card – The Context: This card generally reflects an overall overview of the present situation of a querent.
- The Center Card – The Focus: This card basically reflects a new set of situations, which are about to act based on the querent, the forces (regardless of whether they are positive or negative) and if it is inverse or upright. This 2nd card is indeed the general problem or decision to be made.
- The Right Card – The Outcome: This card typically reflects the influence of the Focus card. In simple words, it will show the consequence that can come with the new circumstances: the matter is well solved or decision is ideally made.
Of course, there are other different versions of this insightful spread. Our task is simply to choose one version that is suited to our current condition most, and then interpret its inner meaning on the whole.
