Sometimes it’s fun to do tarot in pairs!
So here’s a spread for exploring the energy between two people in a relationship.
You could use this for lovers, friendships, colleagues, couples, or partnerships within a poly relationships – anywhere where you have two people relating to each other! Here’s the full-length spread, and if you scroll down to below that, you’ll find a shorter mini version too.
Brooke and Nadine’s matching tats, shared in this post on tarot tattoos.
The spread has three elements:
Me – as in, the querent, the person leading the reading
You – the second person.
Us – the relationship itself – which here is just as important (but not more important) than the two individuals.
Shuffle the cards together, making sure both of you get a good go at those cards and can handle and shuffle them for as long as you/they want.
Here are the card positions:
Lay the nine cards out in three columns, one row at a time. Start with yourself (‘me’) on the left, then the other person (‘you’) on the right, the the relationship itself in the centre.
1. Me – where I’m at
2. What I’m doing or bringing
3. What I need from this relationship
4. You – where you’re at
5. What you are doing or bringing
6. What you need from this relationship
7. Us – together, right now
8. Where the relationship is heading
9. What the relationship needs from both of us
10. A word of advice.
Short on time?
You can of course do a three or four-card version of this spread, laying out the cards as follows:
