What is a tarot spread?
A tarot spread is basically an ordered and pre-determined arrangement of tarot cards. Each spot in this arrangement carries its own meaning and significance. Not every tarot reader uses tarot spreads, but in my experience they are crucial.
A good tarot spread is structured in a way that allows the cards to not only answer the question but also provide deeper insight. The way this can be achieved by structuring the layout in a way that not only tells a story but provides contrasts. In a sense a good tarot spread will tell many different stories depending on the perspective.
Why using a spread is important
A tarot spread sets the stage for a good tarot reading. A tarot spread appropriate to what you are seeking from the cards lays the framework for a clear answer. In many ways a good tarot spread is just as important as the question you ask the cards. A predetermined spread gives the cards context, and leaves no room for confusion as to what they are saying.
