Popular Tarot Card Spreads – Part 3
Welcome to part 3.
The Tarot deck is a very accurate tool with many uses…
So it’s not surprising there are now many different types of Tarot decks you can choose from for your readings.
And even though the available number is quite high…
It hasn’t stopped people from making their own decks…
…illustrated with their own versions of the images the decks originally came with.
But the Ryder Waite and Aquarian Tarot are still amongst the most popular, and whichever deck you choose to go with…
Reading the Tarot card layouts or spread, relies as much on your intuition and learned ability, as it does on the spread of the cards themselves.
So, here’s another one for you to master:
3. The Horseshoe Spread
This is another ‘classic’ simple layout and is good for looking at a specific question or situation in a little more depth.
So let’s begin…
Shuffle your cards well and think of the question or situation you wish to address.
Lay the first card, face down, in front of you, and towards your left hand side.
Then lay the second card down slightly below and to the right of the first one.
Cards 1, 2, 3, and 4 curve downwards with cards 5, 6, 7, curving back upwards – forming a ‘U’ or horseshoe shape.

Card 1 – Is the past influences.
Card 2 – The present situation.
Card 3 – Hidden or unseen influences.
Card 4 – Obstacles blocking your path.
Card 5 – Outside influences.
Card 6 – Your best course of action.
Card 7 – The likely outcome if nothing changes
Now, as you may have already noticed…
I love the simple, uncomplicated layouts because it’s so easy to remember which card means what, in a certain position.
Plus it allows for you to use your own intuition more clearly.
To me, a convoluted layout spells clutter not clarity.
Okay then, let’s recap…
You’ve now identified what’s blocking you with your 7 card Chakra layout…
Asked yourself a question with the Yes – No layout…
…and today you’ve tackled something more in depth with the Horseshoe spread…
Perfick… keep practicing, and I’ll see you again next time!
