If you are in the process of learning to read tarot cards, all of the different spreads that there are for different types of readings can be a little confusing. There are 3 card layouts or spreads, spreads that use 10 or more cards and even times that a reader may only pull one card from the tarot deck. Learning to read the tarot cards and even learning the different spreads that are used does not have to be difficult; what will make it easier is to learn what the different spreads are used for. However, it is important to note that different readers often change spreads or adapt them to fit situations or if they feel that the cards that they have pulled have not given them enough information. One variation tarot card layout, which you will most likely come across when learning to read tarot cards is the past, present, future spread. While this reading is normally done using three cards there are variations and one of them uses a 9 card layout as opposed to 3. Instead of using 1 card for the past, 1 for the present and 1 for the future to help the individual understand the answer to their question, this layout uses 3 cards for each time frame. Using 3 cards instead of 1 allows for a better understanding of what has transpired in their situation to bring them from point a to point b. Once you know the basic understanding of the 3 card past, present, future card layout learning to read the tarot cards, using 9 cards is easy to adapt to. Another layout that you will most likely use when learning to read tarot cards is the birthday spread. Again, as with many different tarot layouts, there are many different adaptations, one of which uses a 9 tarot card layout. This layout uses the 9 cards to give an interpretation of what has happened in the past for the person and even over the past year since their last birthday. It also gives information regarding what is to come within the next year. As you are learning to read the tarot cards you will find that while they type of layout or spread that you use is important, so is the energy that comes from the cards themselves. While you need to put emphasis on the layout itself and the meanings of the cards that are drawn, the energy of the cards may take on a life of their own and give you some additional information regarding the situation. When beginning learning to read tarot cards try experimenting with the past, present, future tarot spread, with both the 3 card layout and the 9 card layout. Practice by reading the cards for yourself and getting yourself accustomed to the cards. You will most likely find that you can gain much more information from the 9 card spread and will find it easy to use and work with. Take your time when learning to read the tarot cards and work on understanding the layouts and the cards; this will go a long way in helping you read for yourself and others.
