How to Interpret Tarot Card Combinations
There are different ways of cards compounds reading in Tarot Spreads.
There are spreads, where the event is described by the one card, there are spreads, where events are described by two or three cards. On the correct  interpretation of the card or cards depends  how well you will  describe the event.
We‘ll begin with an analysis of one card (with layouts, where the analysis is performed on one card) One card can help describe the situation, emotions, expectations, behavior, etc.
You can use one card for the analysis of the day.
The one card tarot spread –   My day
In the morning Ask yourself “What will be my day?” and pull out one card
First, describe the emotional background and the activity of the day. Then describe the different possible events, which can occur by this card.
In the evening analyze the events that took place and compare them with your description.


For example,
you pulled out The Magician’s card.
Possibly the day will be active and full of communication. You’ll not only plan, but also negotiate with other people. In the future, obtained information can help you to realize your plans. It is also possible to obtain information on courses or in a conversation with a specialist.
To get the answer,, What will be my day?’’ you can use 3 cards and get more information
1 – A general description of the day-
2 – major events for the day
3 –   advice



For example

Today you pulled out   the following cards
1 – The Magician
2- The Fool
3 –  The Emperor

The Magician – The day will be very active, dynamic,  there  will be a lot of communication, which will  help in the implementation of plans.

The Emperor – The advice of this day – regardless of the occurrence of unscheduled meetings and other events, try to complete what was planed for today
Create your own version of the interpretation of those  cards  or fill up the given interpretation.



While studying of Major Arcana cards, every morning ask yourself :,,what will be my day?”,  and pull out one of the Major Arcana cards (from the ones you have learned) . After examining the values ​​of all the Major Arcana cards, the cards are selected from all the Major Arcana.
In the evening analyze and write to a notebook those events of the day, which you think are appropriate to the card’s value.

The combination of two cards shows not one but several different events. As long as you exercise to combine the cards, you need to see as many interpretations of the events as you can.


Describe the situation and person by the following cards:

The Magician and The Fool

The High Priestess and The Emperor

The Magician and the Emperor



3 – Practice

a combination of three cards


Last time we learned how to combine two cards to one event.

In the same way we can combine three cards in one event.  We have to take one word from each card‘s general meanings and combine them.  This method has certain conditions:

1 – the event must demonstrate by  all three cards. If two cards easy interpret the event, but the third not, we must find such meaning for each card, which bind within the meaning of all three cards

2 – if the card depicts  people, it means  that into  situation involved people and they can be described using the meanings of cards.

3 – we have to read cards from left to right

4 – future events will show the third (right) card


Example No 1
The Hermit, The Fool, The Lovers
For example, we have obtained – Searching of new feelings,

The third card is The Lovers, so we can say that a person has a chance to find new feelings and this can occur spontaneously, perhaps at a party (The Fool)


Example No2

The Wheel of Fortune, Justice, The Emperor

Interpretation: The successful appointment

A successful mounting in the new position

Example No3

The Hanged man, Justice, The Emperor


Interpretation : a delay of an appointment
Because the last card is the Emperor, we can say that the person will get the appointment, but not soon

But if on the cards formed as follows:
Justice, The Emperor and  The Hanged man, Looking at  the last card we can say that the situation remains in limbo, suspended and the  person probably will not get the appointment.


Example No. 4
Death, The High Priestess, The Empress

If the Death card located between two cards, it shows that the event, which describe the card in front of the Death  card, is completed. And will take place the event, which shows the card, lying after the Death card.

If we look at these three cards from the perspective of relations, we obtain the following event:  Secret (The High Priestess) Transformation (Death) Open feelings (The Empress)
That is, the secret is revealed. We can say that the secret relationship became public. Because the final card is the Empress, people began to meet openly, or have admitted to each other in love.

Create your own versions of events by given cards.



Tell about the events that will occur according to the given cards

The Significator And The Psychological Matrix Of Man
Significator is a card that represents  the Querent (the person we are reading for)

If we do Tarot reading without Querent beside, we can put separately his significator – doing so we denote ritual his presence.
If the significator appeared in any position of the spread, it is an indication that the area, which dscribes this position is very important for the Querent. For example, significator  is in a position that shows the area of finance. This means that the financial affairs of a person  is very important at the moment  for him.
There are several different methods for deciding on the appropriate card to represent the Querent.


Here is one of the easiest
If you choose the significator to the men:
1  select from the deck cards of kings and knights
2 – Mix and place them in two rows of 4 cards
3 – ask the person to concentrate and select the two cards
4 –  ask the person to choose one of them,

It  will be the significator.
If you choose a card-significator for a woman:

1Select from the deck  four cards of Queens,

2 mix and place them in one row

3 – ask the person to concentrate and select the two cards
4 –  ask the person to choose one of them,

It  will be the significator
If you choose the significator for a men to 21-23 years, repeat the same with four cards of Pages


Next method depends on knowing the Zodiac sign of your Querent. Also, you will need to know which element is associated with each suit in the deck of Tarot cards that you are using. For example, for women of Air element (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) you can choose Queen of Swords as significator. For men of water element (Canser, Scorpio, Pisces) you can choose King of cups.


Using the Court cards you can also create a psychological portrait of a man, which  can help to Querents  better understand themselves.
In order to make the necessary psychological matrix
1 Select  from the deck 16  Court cards , which are 4 page-boy, 4 knights, 4 Queens and 4  Kings
2- mix and place cards in a square 4 x 4
3 ask to choose any four cards
4-arrange cards in a row, from left to right, in the order of the Querent chose


1 card  corresponds to the element of Fire (Wands), and talks about how  do people see the  Querent and how he is active
2  card corresponds to the element of Water (cups) and shows the emotions of the Querent and  how  he expresses them,
3 card – corresponds to the element of Air (Swords) and talks about the style of thinking and communication rights.
4 – corresponds to the element of earth (pentacles)  and shows the practicality of a Querent


For example, such cards for women


1 – Queen of Wands

2 –  Queen of Swords

3 –  King of Swords

4 – Page of pentacles


1 – We can suggest that others see her as glamorous, beautiful, active, cheerful woman.
2  – The card of Queen of Swords says that inside  woman  is  very resolute, and before expressing her emotions, she thinks through how to do it
3  – The card of King of Swords  suggests that a woman can make decisions and takes responsibility for her words and thoughts
4- The card of Page  of Pentacles suggests that a woman can earn money with her skills and knows how to handle money.

There are many layouts for the analysis of the relationships. We offer one of them. This tarot spread is prominent in the practice of Tarot readings.
