How many times have you woken up and wondered whether or not you are going to have a good day? Maybe there’s something big on the agenda that you are worried about, or maybe you just have a feeling something great, or bad, is going to happen and you aren’t sure why.
As useful as astrology and horoscopes can be in helping us with an overall picture of things, we still want to know the nitty gritty details of these daily questions. This is what makes divination tools like the tarot a beautiful thing. Today we’re going to talk about how to use the tarot to guide you to a great day.
The Tarot Has an Answer for Every Question
For every question you have, the tarot has an answer, sometimes many answers. That is because the tarot is rich in symbolism, with every single tarot card giving you a bounty of symbols and details to give you every answer you need for any question that you might have. If you are wondering whether or not you are going to have a good day, just ask the tarot.
You also want to be sure that you are bookmarking our Daily Tarot here, that can give you that little extra push in your day to day. So how can you use your own daily at home? There are two spreads that I recommend for this, but first, let’s talk about how to prepare your mind for your own reading at home.
How to Prepare to Have an Amazing Day
The first thing you need for your own tarot readings at home is to get yourself a set of tarot cards. Once you have that, the only training you need is how to get in tuned with your cards and listen to that little voice of intuition. You can’t just pick up your cards, pick one, and expect to get answers. Your answers will be much more meaningful if your questioning is spiritually aligned.
Find a quiet minute or two, away from the phone, the spouse, the kids, the computer, the fur babies, and spend some time with your cards. You won’t need much time if you are doing a 1-card reading or a 3-card reading, but you won’t get good answers if you are distracted. You can go all out and light a white candle if you want, harnessing white light is always helpful.
Shuffle the cards in whatever way makes the most sense to you. There is no wrong answer or method of doing this. You can cut the cards over and over again, you can shuffle like a deck of playing cards. I’ve seen someone drop the tarot cards on the table and then pick them all up again and organize them the way they like. Whatever floats your boat.
The most important thing you need to keep in mind when shuffling is, ask your question out loud or in your head while you are shuffling. Think of nothing else. Keep the questions simple and straightforward. The tarot will give you the answer on the biggest thing that will happen that day. So let’s look at specific spreads now.
Keep it Simple With a 1-card Spread
The 1-card spread is the easiest spread you will ever do with tarot. It’s simple, concise, and to the point. Usually, you want to keep one card spread questions to ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers. Here are some examples of questions you can ask the tarot for answers.
How will work go today?
Will the meeting go well today?
Should I bring up that issue with my partner today?
Then you draw the card that speaks the most to you. You can cut the deck to draw a card, take it right from the top, or simply close your eyes and move your hands through the cards until one jumps out at you. When you look at the card, listen to that inner voice. What is it saying?
If the card has darker colors, the answer to your question is often a ‘no.’ Then you would use the symbolism of the tarot to get more detailed answers. If you pull the Death card, for example, that might mean a ‘no’ to your question, but it also suggests that an ending is near, as is a rebirth and transformation. Don’t fear the worst. You might be finishing a project, a contract, or even getting promoted.
The light colored cards, which generally mean a ‘yes.’ A card like 5 of Wands, is a lighter card, but the symbolism speaks of conflict. You might have some office politics or drama going on that day. Cards like the Sun are a definite, absolute ‘yes’ from the tarot, and suggest the Sun is shining on you, and it will be a glorious day.
Even if you don’t know your Tarot cards and the symbols perfectly, you can still get immediate answers from your own reading using this simple one card draw every day. What does the symbolism say to you when you draw it, and what is your immediate feeling?
So that is your very simple method to get a quick snapshot of your day. If you have more detailed questions, you can always draw more cards if you want more answers, the tarot never runs out of those. Let’s look at a very quick 3-card draw you can do.
Morning, Noon, and Night With a 3-card Spread
If it’s a big day ahead and you aren’t sure what will happen with it, try a 3-card draw. Many of these spreads draw on big life questions centered around the past, present, and future. For a daily 3-card tarot reading to work, it can be divided into sections of the day: morning, noon, and night.
If you want to find out where your trouble spots in the day are, this is a good snapshot. If you get a card you don’t like or don’t understand in one of these sections, draw more cards and place them in that section of the day to get more answers. Again, generally, the lighter colored cards indicate positive events and the darker ones will be some trouble zones.
Now let’s say you got a reading you didn’t really like. What next? Draw more cards and be more specific with your questions: “How can I have a good day today?” And that’s how you use the tarot to help you get through your work day, every day, or any day that you need a little extra divination or guidance.
For me, the best experiences from the tarot are always about staying as positive as possible. That’s the whole point of doing the reading in the first place, right? To find out how to have a good day. There is no life situation that can’t be turned around if you view it as a learning experience and react positively.
If you need a quick answer, the tarot is the most specific divination tool you can use to get immediate answers to those day-to-day questions that pop up. Combine that with the insight from your Daily Horoscope, and you are set to face whatever the day has in store for you!
